Been looking around online at truck tool boxes and most of them seem to be $350+ Anyone know of some good quality for the money tool boxes that won't break the bank? Needing one for a 1999 Tacoma ex-cab.

May also look into the boxes like a job box that would sit in the middle of the bed, flush with the bed rails or lower so I could still run a canopy with out removing the box.

If you weren't in MT I'd recommend Craigslist. Have you priced Husky or Kobalt?

I saw one on craigslist for 75$ but was an old add and was long gone. I haven't looked at those yet, was planning on hitting the home/ranch supply and maybe home depot.

Check Shiptons also.  


FWIW, I went cheap on a couple and was sorry I did.  Buy once cry once rings true here.


eta:  check the pawn shops too.

UWS.  Low price and quality don't usually go together.  Buy once cry once.

I bought a Husky, and I have been happy with it.  I can't remember how much I paid for it, but it was cheaper than most of the competitiors

I bought a UWS that I found on Craigslist. Love it and I really don't know how I ever got along without one.

Yep. I broke a couple cheap boxes before I sprung for a Weatherguard. 8 years later it's good as new.

I've had a tractor supply box for over 10 years. Its been a great box. Their prices are much more reasonable.

I have a UWS low-pro on my Tacoma and I've been happy with it. I think I paid about $300 and I don't regret it one bit.

Yeah flush fit is the way to go unless it's a work truck.
