Tool box and cover

Does anybody have a box and a tonneau cover on their bed? I already have a low profile box but I need more weatherproof room. Any suggestions

That is really sharp looking. And that's exactly what I had in mind. How did you seal the gap between the cover and the box, if there even is a gap.

I let it sit in the sun and then used a blow dryer and pulled them off. I went back over it with the clay bar after to get rid of any glue left over...
