New Guy in NC - Toolbox Thoughts

I'm interested in toolbox security in the beds of Rangers. Any experiences where a toolbox supposedly secured in the bed came loose while traceling?

Welcome to the site! Never had a box mounted in the back of my truck so can't help you there.

Welcome to RF. Are you talking about over the rail or under the rail toolboxes? I've had two over the rail boxes and both were secured with j-hooks to the bedside. Neither came loose and i had my weatherguard pretty loaded up where i actually needed another person to take it out when i went to pick up a refrigerator.

when I had mine on the ranger, I never had any issues. Used j-hooks under the rail and kept toolbox locked so it had to be opened to get the j-hooks loose.
