Lowe's has two models, $148 for a slim line and $288 for a regular sized box.
I got the slim line and it's working out great for me.

That Is what I would do. Get a box that would go under the rail. Just bolt it in.

Thats what I am thinking it has come down to haha. I really like the look of the above rail box... but not for 400 I dont!

I will do that for the meantime and keep searching for "the deal" haha

Cost = Supply & Demand

Since not many people buy them, they dont stock teh materials to make them in large numbers - so what is made, is made at a steeper price to make up for the time invested to build them.


Hence - why its so much cheaper to buy a fullsize box compared to most others, as they are much more widely available.
