Try Lowes too, by me the Lowes keeps a bunch of nice boxes and a few that fit midsize trucks. But the Home Depot down the street has more expensive/nicer ones but only a couple and they are always for fullsize.

I don't remember offhand. Just give both places a call first, every store is probably different.

Go low profile if you can. They look so much better in my opinion.

I got the low-profile one from Lowes 2 days ago and love it. Its normally 238 but I have a friend that works there so I got it for 10% off. A member on here vansnxtweek got his for like 180 on sale. I would defn go low-pro, doesn't block any of the rear window and you still get a ton of space.

I got this little grip rite system with mine, it like clamps to the bed then you bolt the toolbox too it. It was 25 dollars at Lowes and was made to go with my toolbox. A lot of other guys use J-hooks, you can also drill and mount but thats permanent, J-hooks are not.

Yeah I'm super picky on my stuff so I just waited and saved up for it. No what pisses me off though this same box came up on craigslist this morning for $120! And I already took the Kobalt emblem off so Lowe's won't take it back. Oh well lol

Here's the $150 toolbox from Lowe's I bought........I like the smaller size because it leaves more room in the bed.......

I put one bolt on each side. I drilled two 5/16" holes, one on each side of the tool box, and inserted a 1/4" - 5/16" x 4" bolt with a large butterfly nut (Toggle Anchor) (approx 2"-3") on each bolt and a flat washer under each screw head. I put the butterfly bolt into the square post opening on the bed side, and just tightened it down. I also put some foam rubber between the box and the bedside to keep it from scratching the paint. The foam came with the tool box.
You can place the tool box on the truck and measure where the square hole is so you can determine where to drill your hole in the tool box.

I used the butterfly nuts into the square post holes, because I didn't want to drill into the truck. Works perfectly.


Note: You can get various size toggle anchors at Loew's.

i bought one of their boxes for one of my f 250s back a few years and thought it was kinda crappy.. shop around and check craigs list for a good used one... the last couple i got from tractor supply.. my trucks are work trucks so i dont care if i buy one that has a few scratches cause by the time i get done with them they are destroyed anyway
most places including home depot have mid size in stock...
