    Weighing between getting a resin deck box or ice cooler to put close to the cabin of the bed to store things as needed, keep dry, and somewhat secured. Looking for close to 48" to maximize storage. Deck box would have the eye to put a lock but Id have to make some kind of cut cable lock it down. Cooler would have handled to cable lock down but Id have to put on a lock accessory. Cooler would definitely be more water tight and sturdier. But would be up to 2x cost of similar size to deck box.

    What do you guys think, deck box or ice cooler? Additional suggestions/thoughts are welcomed.

    image.jpg I have a decked system. They are lockable, cooler drain plugged, dividers and tool box accessories avalible.

    They came with the truck when I bought it and I've grown to love the added clutter free storage.

    If I could afford it I would have gone with the "deck system".

    The decked drawers work well for me. Between my fused vertebrae and knee replacement I can't imagine anything else.

    Anyone with a decked have any problems with the drawers sticking? My right one is sticking pretty hard and I'm about to use some dry lube, but I can't really tell where it's getting hung up.

    Don't let that sway you OP, it's still great.

    I just opened my drawers after going through the snow storms and found a little snow in my drawers. So it looks like it is water proof, but not quite snow proof.
