Question tool box/ tow hitch

Ok, I just inheareted this truck it is a 2001 Ranger Edge. I know my father didn't want a tool box on it but I need one so that I can put my work equipment in. The truck has a factory drop in bed liner (?), and the bed rails. I don't want to remove either of them, but I want a tool box that willdrop in and be flush with the bed rails. I have looked around but haven't seen one that looks like it will fit. Does any one out there have one or know of one or a brand?

I also would like to put a tow hitch on it, but there is not a hitch listed for the Edge. Will the regular tow hitch work?

Thanks for your help.
Sam

I just checked out your profile pictures and that is what I was looking for. I don't want one that sits out over the bed rails.

I am glad it has lots of room. I have a lot of work stuff to put in it, I always try and keep a spare uniform or two and other work equipment ready incase I need it . I want to put some tools in it too, cuz you never know. I also want it in the black.
