Icon5 Step-side Tool Boxes- Where'd you get em?

I have a 2004 step-side ranger, and have been on the hunt for a tool box to fit it. I have a plastic bedliner, that I am trying to get rid of, so that won't be an issue soon as far as fit goes. But, between the rail caps I have almost exactly 46 inches. the narrow part of the plastic bed-liner is 42 inches, but like I said, won't matter (I think) when I remove it.
If you have a step-side, and you have a tool box, I wanna know where you got it? If you know the dimensions/specs of your box, a part number, and have a picture of it on your truck, that would really be helpful. I'm trying to keep it under 300 if possible, and have already been to lowe's, ace, and every parts store around.
I'll probly end up ordering one online. I've found some with free shipping for around 250 deezee brand, but they just give generic dimensions and only 50 x 19 x 12, and nothing else. I would prefer a low-profile, chrome or black, and 17-20 inches wide, and 14-17 inches deep. If you have any suggestions or help that would be great. Please don't bother if you have a regular bed, I could care less what your box is, they're all I can find, trust me, I've seen enough. Thanks in advance.

uws makes them and I think Delta too. I have a uws gullwing that I paid about $325 for but you get what you pay for...the quality is awesome! You will have to find a local dealer but here is their website: UWS - Truck Accessories. Part numbers with SPLA are for step sides.

Thanks, I'll look into that. I found a vendor but they are over an hour away, more with traffic. Cali traffic and 15 mpg = sucks.

I used the locator on that website, found one about 10 miles away. who knew? haha. Guess I'll check them out tomorrow. I just want to go to a store and actually be able to see the dang thing before I buy it. I don't want vague dimensions on a website that has a picture "image may not be of actual product", then pay 300 bucks and get something that doesn't fit or I'm not happy with. I want to know what I'm buying, so if I don't like it, I can return it right away. I'm picky and a tight-wad.

Tractor Supply Company. It fits with a couple inches on each side, and a few inches below the top of the bed cap.

Yea I wanted a low profile over the rail, but it was hard to find, and I got a much better deal on one that fits inside the bed
