You don't have to be a construction worker to enjoy the benefits of a truck tool box. Add a tool box to the bed of your truck can for storage, organization, and security whether you're on the job a weekend retreat. With the right style and size, a truck tool box can transform your pickup into a vehicle of organization and efficiency.
WORK MADE EASIER
Save yourself time and effort organizing your tools and equipment. Some boxes are compartmentalized with several spaces for sorting and storage. If most of the tools you use are large or oddly shaped, however, you might be better off opting for a unit with a single, large compartment.
SAFE AND SECURE
Truck tool boxes keep your valuable equipment under lockdown at all times. Most truck tool boxes are equipped with locking mechanisms and are securely bolted to your truck bed.
With a variety of styles available, it's important to take the time to determine which style is most appropriate for your pickup. Think about the following questions to determine the right style for you.
- What tools do you plan to keep in it and how much room they take up?
- How frequently will you access the tools?
- Which styles offer the easiest access?
- How much cargo room do you need once your tool box is in place?
STYLES & NEEDS
The first thing to figure out is what type of mount is right for you and your truck. These are the most common:
- Top-Mount: Mounted behind the cab of the truck, this style typically features several different sized compartments that are covered with a single lid.
- Side-Mount: Designed in a number of sizes to fit compact and full-size beds, a side-mount tool box can be mounted to either side rail of your vehicle - or both if you need extra storage.
- Crossbed: Designed to fit practically any size of truck, a crossbed truck tool box fits snuggly behind the cab, spans the entire width of your truck, and can be bolted to the bed.
- Hitch Mount: Attaches to the trailer post of your truck and takes up no room in the bed itself.
- Trailer Tongue: If you're pulling a trailer, a trailer tongue tool box can be a good fit.
CHOOSE A MATERIAL
truck boxes come in a variety of materials, including steel, aluminum, and heavy-duty plastic. As a rule, they're all weather- and theft-resistant.
- Aluminum: Aluminum is a popular choice for truck boxes because it's strong, durable, and resistant to corrosion but also lightweight like plastic.
- Steel: If you're looking for something to stand up to heavy-duty wear and tear, a steel tool box is your best bet. These models are designed for exceptional durability, strength, and longevity.
- Plastic: Truck tool boxes made of plastic tend to be more heavy-duty than traditional plastic tool boxes, which are best suited to casual, at-home use.
