Pic request: in bed tool boxes

Im getting tired of looking at my huge over the rail toolbox, its silver and im in the process of doing away with polished metal and i havnt made up my mind if i want to paint it or not. So im thinking about getting a chest tool box to put in the truck that isnt as noticable. I didnt know if any of you guys had them or what your experiences are with them. So if you a pic or a comment post it up. Thanks!

I was actually looking at a small gang/tool box to sit in the bed up near the cab. It wont stick up over the bed rails at all.

I didn't bother using bed bolts or anything, I wanted to be able to take it out quickly if I needed to. I've ran that box with those hooks for almost 7 years and I've had no issues

That is the way it should be done.

I am working on a rear support system that attaches to my back rack and extends down to the bed.
I think the weight of the tools and such will keep it in place but just to be sure I will attach it (somehow) to my back rack.

Watch the metal thickness.

I can’t find my paperwork on where I got it from, I will keep looking.

Tractor Supply Company, I don't even remember if it was made for any certain vehicle. I just measured the inside of the bed and went with that

I'd love an inbed. I have a Stanley one but I don't really trust it. (It's thinnish plastic.)

I can get a measurement tomorrow but I have a shovel in there its a short shovel it's about waist high. There is about three inches of space between the bed sides and toolbox.... Maybe that will give you an idea

Wrong vehicle but this is an idea for you. I got a good deal on a polished aluminum box so I got it and bedlined it with herculiner.
