    I am looking at a UWS model TBS-60-SL. It is a slimline box. It is their smallest or the 60" model. Is that the one I want for a 2011 Tacoma??? It is a small box. 5" deep from the top of the rail. I need that exact length to fit a kayak under (13" tall). I like to sit my kayak in the bed with the tailgate down. In this position it hangs out the back only a foot and is very secure. Thanks

    Check with Jhodge83. I'm pretty sure he has the slim line UWS in his short box double cab.

    Range44. The model in question is 9" tall (4" lid and 5" below that.) According to my measurements, that leaves 14". if this is the box you have, would you mind measuring that to confirm?

    Yeah, you want a 63" inch box. Mine is a low profile so most of my box is below the top of bed line. Maybe 6" between bottom of box and bed floor. IDK about box you're asking about.

    I don't have mine in, but 6" seems about right. Just to confirm I'm talking about the bottom of the tool box to the bed. That just sounds bad.

    OK, yeah seems like Range is selling the same box that I have. Which is not the one you will need. Sorry. :eek:

    Bed is right at 18" - 5" for your box = you should be good.

    I have a 2011 Prerunner double cab short bed. What size UWS toolbox will fit this? I'm pretty sure I want to go with a black UWS Slim Line - but not sure what size will fit. anyone know?
