Built myself a toolbox

Got bored yesterday and decided to make myself a cheapo toolbox for the back of my truck. Plywood with 2x4's to reinforce it. Turned out purty good if you ask me. Just need to find a way to lock it until I fork out 400$ for a diamond plate one.

Ya this is just temporary, I want to see if having one is actually worth the money, so far.... no lol I used to keep all that junk in the back of the cab. Although it might come in handy when I'm in the trails... We'll see

Huh.. Guess I can't delete the post. Looks good for a home made box for sure. Was going to comment about the tow strap until I saw you do have a proper one underneath. LR

haha Thats why I edited my post!! I've seen those little bastages do some serious damage to trucks [including one caved in tailgate], thats why I started my original post. Luckily, everything I've witnessed hasn't involved people in a serious manner. I've been thumped by a couple though over the years, nothing too major though. LR
