I have a truck and I need a decent tool box for it, one that will not be too easy to break into.

I've looked around and I decided to ask you all what you use, how much you paid for it, and how much you like it.

I like the price, but how long do they hold up? I've noticed with a number of the boxes my father uses that the locks wear out after a while of day to day use.

I want to make sure I keep people out of my tools.

Then put a gun rack on the other side of the tool box.

Weather guard. They are expensive, but worth the money. If I remember correctly, the crossbox is about $750.

Ah yea I've seen those but I think I like the idea of something I can bolt to the bed of my truck more than the boxes that sit kinda high.

ahhh... Weather guard makes those type also, however, the gang box may be a better option, depending on the size you want. I had a weather guard "pack rat" once. It was very handy, but it's more of a material/small items drawer.

Weatherguard or RKI. RKI steel boxes if you are really rough on them and keep a lot of weight in the cross box.

I want these ones but am having a bugger of a time finding them in Ontario or a price.:censored:



The one I saw recently had dividers that would be perfect for holding breakers.
