    I had that same one for a while and no complaints here! I only changed it up cause I didn't want anything sitting on the rails, so switched to a UWS chest this way I could mount a scepter can on the side of it.

    Start a thread. It looked like you were from the company with your very low post count and thats the only reason I said anything. Usually when people post the same exact sentence in multiple threads dating back eons they are advertising and get the hammer.

    Another question is, which is better, the kind with a single lid that opens from the back, or the ones that have one opening from each side?

    It's got a pretty cheap locking mechanism but I can't complain much about a $150 box. Needed a slim box so I wouldn't waste too much of my short bed.

    I like the ones that open from the sides, if you have stuff in the back next to your tool box, you may not be able to get to the latch.

    I have had both and you are right.....depending on how you use it effects what design to purchase...

    My "gull wing" worked when I had just my "gear" in it BUT when I added "Mack" supplies I had to constantly move things around to get items....my open lid/flip has more room BUT I need to keep the latch /rod area "clean" or fight to get it open :rolleyes:..been there done that...why I now have more items boxed within the bigger box :D..

    Plus my new box is low profile BUT deeper than my cross lid..

    Good advice on specing a "Box" to fit your "Needs" ;)

    Nice! I have the exact same truck but a 2013. I was looking at getting a UWS for my birthday on the fourth of next month. It looks great

    I now have a black kobalt like the ones above. Love it! Almost too small to fit my actual toolbox inside, but it works.
