Default truck bed storage

Bought some new storage for under my tonneau cover. The bigger one is 24 gallon and the smaller one is 8 gallon. The locks are probably over-kill but oh well. These Rubbermaid Action Packers are durable.

If they really want to steal my quart of oil, windshield washer fluid and etc, then go right ahead, if they really want it, they will find a way to get it.

hahahaha yeah i have probably 200ish bucks in tools, and then a few small spares and all that, so i dont want them taking it, the small one would be perfect for me cause i can throw it in the cab when i go to the store.

I had to get the hockey bag because I couldn't find one that was a decent size without it being too tall for my tonneau cover, they were either dinky (tackle box) or larges tool boxes

8 gallon was about $18 and the 24 gallon was about $29. It may seem expensive but they will last. As far as security yeah it is no safe. I have the 48 gallon one it has lasted at least 5 years. The only thing is the red clasp is sun faded and chalky looking.

Thought about what I could use that was low profile and didn't take up more space than I actually need storage for. These can be easily unlatched in a pinch yet lockable both to the bed and the lid has a lock of course.

Yeah I have a tonneau cover. The 24 gallon is about 17 1/2" tall which is pushing it. I think it will fit under the bows. The 8 gallon is about 14" tall. I can fit the large one in the passenger seat if needed for extra security. The small one would probably fit on the passenger side floor.

That's a fact. I had a ton of stuff in the back of my truck worth more than my truck so they stole the whole truck. Drove it for a while stole/sold all the stuff and left the truck side of the road.
