Default Tool Boxes (pork chop tool boxes)

ive never considered tool boxes because i think its sacrificing much needed space for me....BUT i saw these http://weatherguard.com/truck_tool_b...p?subcat_id=14 and thought this would be a cool adddition for me someday....any opinions? has anyone done this particular one?\

also lets see your tool boxes (no specific ones)! especially the ones with accessories such as bike fork holders!

I've seen em. I think the only way i'd ever get one is if i had a tounneu cover.. but they look like they'd be useful. i like them.

Very cool... do they make a set that cover the wheel wells right to the front leaving a square box?

im not sure, i think they only make them going to the back but i dont see why u couldnt flip them around and do some fab to put the hinge back on the other side..

i like them because the wheel wells are in the way ANYWAY so might as well make them useful..everytime i load the truck theres usually nothing that sits perfectly on the wheel well so it ends up stuffed or tilted or whatever somehow

I'd rather have a set of these: http://www.autoanything.com/truck-to...A3956A0A0.aspx Which reminds me. I NEED TO rip my bed liner out asap. I hate the damn thing.

They have some off brands available for much cheaper. Rural King sells them for somewhere over $100 each.. The best thing is that they'd fit under a bed cover.



These might be cheaper but they don't swing out: http://www.pickuptrucktoolboxes.com/...ll_toolbox.htm



Here's another option like you were showing: http://www.pickuptrucktoolboxes.com/...es_DeeZee.html

WOW! i love this! wish it was a little prettier like made of metal though but now i am definitely considering this! swing case is aweasome lol
i wish it could swing out all the way to be straight in case i need to transport it like that


the double wheel well seems like the same amount of space taken up but in a different place and if heavily loaded with tools might cause problems??

i like these better, the black one looks super sexy, and i could just pull it out when i dont need it, i like the in bed stuff, but would want something smaller than the T boxes.

Those work well in full size trucks but honestly in our little trucks they get in the way more than just a regular box. I have seen them in a few little trucks and they look ugly IMO. Prob why you never see them advetised in smaller trucks.
