    This is the Equipment, TOOLS, & Vehicle pictures forum, so lets see everyones tool boxes/chests. Just guessing, but I've got a pretty good feeling that just about everyone on this forum is pretty into tools and I bet a few have some pretty serious set ups.

    I've been thinking about getting a box for my truck. I was looking at the weather guard boxes today and was shocked at the $800 dollar price.

    UWS Gull Wing toolbox. I like it. I bought it for a $100 from a friend of mine that his dad died and I bought it off of him.

    Merrimac, go to Home Depot and buy a husky box, built well and there only about 350-400 bucks.

    I buy all my boxes at a local, once-a-year car parts swap meet called "Englishtown" in New Jersey. I just bought a UWS box like the one above for $45. I average about $50-$60 per box, I have bought 12 of them over the last few years. At last years meet I bought a pair of steel side boxes for $25 for the pair. Good baragins, it appears that when average people get rid of their trucks they have the boxes sitting around their garages and just want to blow them out for a few dollars!

    Hey Pro...

    I think the one Lowes have are better than the Home Depoo ones. I was looking at one very close and had the same locks, reinforcments and hinge as the weather gaurds for half the price, I think it was $388. It had the double re-inforced top, and the door type latches, and the front was re-inforced were you would try to pry it open.

    I would go for a lobotomy before I spend 800 clams on a box! <img src=http://www.getsmileyface.com/new/orange_smileys/43.gif>

    Weatherguard boxes are the only way to go. I was T-boned in my Ranger a few weeks ago and spun around....my Weatherguard box flew off the truck (had at least 200lbs of stuff in it....winch, tools, fluids,etc.) and landed about 30 ft behind my truck. Not a single dent in it! Truck is fubar though!
