toolbox for f150

so im lookin for a toolbox for the 07 150. i cant afford a new one right now so im lookin into gettin a used one cheap. are toolboxes vehicle specific or do they just go by if its a fullsize or midsize? like my truck is ex cab w/ 6.5 ft bed, so will a toolbox on another truck w/ the same specs like a chevy or another brand that excab w/ a 6.5ft bed fit my truck? thanks

They just go buy fullsize, etc. You need a 60" one

Generic full size should work since you have the 6.5 bed (no need to worry about wheel well).

I saw some nice low profile black diamond plate boxes at a line-x place in Nicholasville a while back, made by trailfx. I could back sworn they were in the 300-350 range at the store but it was quite a while ago.

They looked nice, but you may have to look around a bit to find them.

Heh, I love these topics.

I am around truck boxes all day long with almost every one being a different brand. I have Husky's on my truck, and they are crap. Don't waste your money on them. Kobalts are only a small step above those. However, if you're just going to be throwing tools you won't be needing every day in there, I'd go for one.

Delta and Weathergaurd are the best brands, IMO. They are built for being used and abused. They are expensive, but WELL worth the money. I am looking for one right now for the right price.

i saw those at the local car effects shop and yea, they are very nice. ik a guy that has a lowpro on his work truck and he likes it pretty well. only thing is that the shop owner said that they dont make it for the f150 (which ik is BS) and that he reccomended UWS. i was also told by him that the reason trail FX is cheaper than other brands like on bull bars and such is that they make everything for westin and some other companies and the other company just puts their name on it. the westin black bullbar is like 350 and the trail fx is 150-200.

the deltas arent too bad. at rural king for a delta fullsize lowpro is either 329 or 349 (ones black and the others polished). most boxes i have experience w/ seem to be the same other then the locking mechanism and everything. the actual boxes seem about the same quality

Toolbox's aren't made model specific. Just get a 60" box and you'll be good to go

70" is probably the entire length, I think 60" is the part that goes inside the bed.
