Any of you guys have tool boxes in the bed of your pickup ? I am thinking of one that will hold a saw ,some chains ,gas/oil etc ,but would be nice to have space under it if have to haul lumber or plywood ,any pics of your trucks with toolboxes for ideas ? I have a 2004 Dodge Ram i will be putting it in .

I've had a bunch of boxes....weather guard is a personal favorite. I like single lid...gull wing suck. Paddle and button locks will fail eventually.

I have TSC flip lid for my '98.Kid bought it as a scratch n dent.Aluminum tread plate matches the fuel transport tank,bed rails,tailgate protector,running boards and soon to be front bumper(if I ever get it laid out and built). I've never been crazy about them. I think you're further ahead with s job box.in a pickup.

I have one of these job boxes at work here ,it is real deep ,seems like wasted space for what i need for hauling longer stuff ,i have a short bed pickup ,and it is kind of deep to reach into for a saw also ,may work for now though .

my whole truck body is a box.......service body. i do have an aluminum box in the back for saws, it will hold one with a 36 or two with less than a 32 if you jiggle um around just right. not sure of the brand, it one of those designed to across the inside of a full size but under the top of body.
