In Bed Tool Boxes - Pics Please

I currently have a single lid low profile cross-over tool box from UWS... specifically, this one:

You can kind of see it in this pic (Sorry I don't have a direct picture right now)

I am looking at getting a different tool box that sits in the bed, and doesn't come up over the rails so I can put my tonneau cover back on. Being that I have a step-side, I am limited to what I can put in there due to the small size of the bed... and the plastic bedliner takes up some extra space.

I am looking at getting one like this.

I'm not really sure how these mount to the truck so they are secure. I am wanting to see pictures of anybody's tool boxes that are similar to this, and preferably how they are mounted. Also, if you have a tonneau cover, that would be an added bonus. I have thought about mounting a tool box near the tailgate for easier access. Let me see what you have please.

Something else you might consider is getting the tonneau cover cut to fit with your current toolbox. Just another option.

bigandrw thats the style I'm looking at also. theres one here at the bomgaars for like $45 just black. I'm wanting to get it more as a beer chest since my trucks single cab (no room for beer in the cab) My question is how was your box/chest mounted in the cab? or was it just sat in there?

thanks. and I think it would sorta solve Rlongs question also.

I never bolted mine down because I took it out every now and then to haul stuff. If you wanna bolt it down, there are four holes on each corner to drill into the bed. If you put a jack, and other stuff in it it wont go anywhere

That looks pretty good. I found one that will fit from UWS, but I think it might be a tad too tall and I will need to remove my plastic liner. Still interested in how it mounts. Not too sure I'd be thrilled about drilling hole in the bed.
