Not sure how stable it would be, but you could try putting a toolbox on the side parts and then clamping that down with some "J" bolts. That might hold it in place and you wouldn't have to drill anything

Weld some angle iron to the angle iron that is on the bed rails so it goes under the rails. Drill a couple hols and weld nuts to the top side of the brackets. Run a bolt thru the nuts and tighten them against the rail sandwiching the rail between the angel on top of the cap and the bolt. 2 of those per side should do it. Oh, and reweld the corners between the rand and the angle iron and add a gusset to each side.

Hope I explained that well enough
