    Just got my Tundra and looking at Tool Box options. Please post a picture of your tool box (no sexual innuendos intended) with the brand and model if you know it and about how much it cost you. I couldn't find any similar threads so I started this one.

    Thanks guys!

    I’m looking at something like this
    F73886DB-6BDD-49AE-8742-833E68203E79.jpg
    Or a little cheaper
    29FBD4D2-8A93-4F8D-9C06-8BC77DFB0BED.jpg
    I like the low pro versions. More astheticslly pleasing to me and you can maintain visibility out of the back window. You can also get the chest type that are flush with the bed rail, but they don’t allow you slide stuff underneath like a ladder or sheet goods.

    Zdog tool chest. Only had these pictures so I included a stock photo from online. But I love it. Sits below rack system amd isnt noticeable, also could add topper or tonneau cover as well. Only thing I don't like is no way to secure other than drilling holes in the bottom and using bed bolts to secure. Water tight so far.

    I like both of those, but wish they were deeper, but not totally to the bottom of the bed, so you can still slide plywood and such under it. I'd like 6" of clearance under it, I think.

    I like the notch in it so you can slide your materials up into the notch and not have to tie them down in the front, just from the back.

    I am throwing in because I want to watch this thread.

    I'm thinking of a box as well. Kinda like that first one you posted. I want a low profile type.

    Weatherguard boxes are definitely the premium choice in both quality and price. They’re weatherproof and extremely durable. If I worked construction or did some other thing where I’d be putting the box to the test on a regular basis, Weatherguard would be my first choice.

    However, if you’re like me and aren’t using the toolbox commercially, you can’t beat the UWS boxes. Mine is a black diamond plate UWS. It has quality welds, it’s water tight, and it has a foam filled lid with a 300 lb. weight capacity, which means you can sit/stand on it. At around $400, you’ll pay a little more for it than the generic $150-$200 boxes (Tractor Supply, Kobalt, etc, most of which are cheap boxes made by DeeZee), but it’s well worth the money, and still cheaper than the $800 Weatherguard. I’ve had mine for 5 or 6 years and three different trucks, and it’s still good as new.

    I am really enjoying it so far. FYI to those that are interested it is simply a chest, no shelf or sliding drawer.IMG_20180518_152450738.jpg IMG_20180518_152223072.jpg

    Don’t have a pic off hand, but I like my cheap Tractor Supply box. Wasn’t wanting to spend the $800 bucks on a Weatherguard, even though their level of quality is undeniable.

    Great thread. Also looking for a box to replace the space I had behind my rear seat of my 2012 Crewmax. The 2018 Crewmax I now own left me without a place to store my tool bag, straps, levels, etc.

    Got a narrow one from Walmart a few months ago. less than 100$. Big enough to hold all my recovery equipment and the basic tools. Also keep a little bit of detailing stuff in it ( mostly window cleaner and emergency cleanup stuff)

    If your wallet allows get the weather guard. The one on my other truck is 8 years old and opens and closes great. I was trying to save a few bucks and looked at buyers and the Home Depot specials and said to myself when buying tools “ buy once, cry once”. Couldn’t be any happier
