If you’re a tradesman and make your living with them, talking about the value of tools is like preaching to the choir. Nevertheless, for anyone tools are a significant investment, and leaving them loose in a truck bed is just asking for them to grow legs and disappear, and degrade and become useless from exposure to the elements, not to mention difficult to find when needed. A truck bed tool box will keep your tools secure, organized, and easy to access.

We offer tool boxes in sizes to suit every truck bed, in capacities to suit any amount of tools, in styles for mounting in various locations in the bed, in your choice of finish and construction, and with features to suit every budget. Even if you don’t have a lot of tools or make a living with them, since many pickups trucks lack storage space, a tool box is also useful for carrying items like jumper cables, tie-downs, tow straps, gloves, etc.

The most traditional truck bed tool box is the crossover, or cross bed box, which rests on the bed rails just behind the cab. These boxes come in standard and low-profile designs, and with single and double lids. For easy access from the sides of your truck, choose a crossover with gull wing lids that open to the sides. If a crossover isn’t big enough, consider adding side mount boxes that mount to the bed rails, or for really big storage needs go for a tool chest that mounts to the floor of the bed. We also have specialty boxes that mount over the wheel wells, and a contractor box system that includes a tonneau cover.

Most of our tool boxes are constructed from thick diamond plate aluminum, and available in bright finish or powder coated black. However, we also offer boxes in stainless steel and rugged, durable plastic. Although the design will vary according to manufacturer, most truck tool boxes have seals to prevent moisture from entering the box and causing rust and corrosion or other damage. Many boxes have gas struts that raise the lid automatically when the handle is actuated, and all have keyed locks to keep your valuables secure.

Truck tool boxes typically come with mounting hardware. Many boxes can be installed just with hand tools, particularly crossover boxes that mount to the bed rails, but some may require minor drilling for fastener attachment. If you really want to be organized so you can lay your hand on that tool when you need it, many boxes come with trays, compartments, and even drawers. And although there are tonneau covers designed to be used with tool boxes, if you have a full tonneau, we offer boxes that mount underneath the cover for added security, including one that is hinged and swings out at the rear of the bed for easy access.

    Types of Truck Bed Tool Boxes
    Pickup trucks are designed to be very practical, but there’s definitely nothing pleasant about the tools rattling in a truck bed while driving. There’s as well nothing good about leaving equipment and other stuff out in the open, making it vulnerable to the extremes of weather and, even worse, theft.
