Under Rail/Tonneau Cover Tool Box

Not sure if this belongs here or in Towing/Hauling. It's more for hauling to me but accessory to the enthusiast world. I've searched the forum and come up with little on the subject. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong areas?

I'd like to see pics of bed or rail mounted tool boxes under the rail but above the bed floor. I pitched this idea to KBVOODOO back in '16 when I had a Tacoma, he currently makes one, but it doesn't have a top lid and single large compartment(he does still owe me for the idea though!). Currently all I can find is this one by TruXedo that has a sealable lid: https://www.truxedo.com/p-36241-tonn...model%3DTUNDRA Also, at 400 bones, it seems a bit pricey for a hunk of plastic. I'd gladly spend more for something better if there's something out there.

I may or may not mount a tonneau cover at some point, but at 5' 6", I can use all of the floor space I can get coming from 8' beds on fullsize trucks.

Pictures and suggestions welcome!

I am contemplating getting one of those side units from Lowe's. They are made to sit on the top of the side rail of the bed. But what I may do is mount it in the bed, up against the front of the bed or near the cab. Now, I have also taken notice that the lid will have issues opening, well that is what they make uni-strut for, you can get it in either aluminum or galvanized steel, I think even stainless-steel. The only draw back I foresee is the fact that box isn't that big. But, if a person is really in need of that much storage then a tonneau cover might be an issue as well. If you want to go to a Lowe's website then here is the information

Item # 693646 Model # 63214868

I'd post a link, but fear violating a rule or something.
I am just looking for something that will incorporate my tonneau cover, still allow me to get the most use out of my bed when necessary and be able to stuff my ratchet straps and junk away, not inside the cab, and maybe occasionally haul a long rifle or 2. Maybe my post will help, maybe not.......Oh, you can get uni-strut at just about any electric supply house, most carry it in 10' lengths, slotted or plane.

Good luck!

I don't think you're violating any rules posting a link in a forum. Here it is:

My last truck was 21 years old when I sold it last month, and aside from the aluminum cracking and being repaired, it's still a functional tool box. Heck, I could use it but it's uglier than home made soap.

Iíve thought about this in the past but itís just too much money and I prefer a low profile crossbed box. Now I pull a 5er so itís out of the question anyway.

Holy bajeezus! $3k? I don't think I'll ever have $3000 worth of stuff in the bed. They can keep it for that price!

Oh I agree but it fills a niche market. I havenít found anything else like it anywhere else.
