Hi there. I hope everyone had a good Christmas. I've got a 2008 Mazda B4000 SE 4x4, same as your basic 4x4 top-of-the-line Ranger.
Back when I bought my B4000 back in 2008, I noted a cool accessory that the dealer was trying to sell me...it's a "Folding Storage Box" that mounts in the bed where a toolbox would go. I've been intrigued by this thing since I bought my truck and they are still available in abundance.

I can get them at the dealer or online at various sources, but here's a link for your perusal:
Folding Storage Box - B05A - B-Series Truck
My question is: Anyone have any experience with this product? Any reviews? My dealer is Ford/Mazda in the same facility and the parts guys have said it was a Mazda exclusive item, but will fit in the Ranger without any issues.
I really don't care for toolboxes, but sometimes the cab doesn't cut it for storage. The fact that this is light weight, removable, and also foldable just really calls out to me. I also like the side pouches on either side of the inside.
