Interior storage boxes?

I'm looking to purchase a Super Cab in the near future as a DD. I don't plan on carrying more than 1 other person in the car, so I'd like to get rid of the jump seats. I would like to install a big lockable storage box so I can lock up my work laptop and keep other things out of sight, but secure.

Any ideas? I searched, but did not find any threads where someone had done this.

Thanks!

If you want to build something check this out.

There was also a guy who used a military ammo storage box mounted in the jack location I think for storage.

Any experience with those?

That's pretty cool but it says you must have a minimum order of 5.

I would want one that I can put more than just a laptop in. The one vh5150 made is perfect for what I want and it looks like he bought it.

I would have to say "probably not"--this one took most 7 years to finish! Not really-I started it when i got my '04 new, wasn't happy with how it was turning out, so I ditched it until this winter.
Not really that hard to build though. The main box is 3/4" MDF, glued and screwed. The rounded corners are some molded pieces that I got from Rockler. The lids are 3/4" AC plywood with a skim-coat of bondo. Everything mounts using the jump-seat bolt locations.
I just used some pretty basic power tools-circular saw with guide, jigsaw, router, drill, screwgun. Key is to lay everything out and have a game plan.
