    Western,
    You'll have to get the angled version unless you get a shallow box that's only 10" or so deep. Go make some measurements on your truck, and you'll see how shallow it would have to be.

    UWS TBS-63-A-LP-BLK was one of my stop choices because I think it's only about 16" wide, so it wouldn't take up much of the short bed. Most toolboxes out there are 20" wide. I ended up buying the Lowe's Kobalt toolbox that is 61" long and 12" wide to save space on my short bed. A 61" or 63" long toolbox will work.

    Thank you...I have a DCLB, so its the same length bed as yours. You have the get the angled one or it'll hit the wheel wells. I think this size is perfect. As other pictures show, you can still put stuff under it and access the front tie downs...

    Love your rig and setup! Mine is fairly similar minus the toolbox. I am looking for a tool box I can fit rifles in. Do you think a 48" gun case would fit?
