Are you considering a truck tool box for your truck? The truck accessory experts at Toppers & More have plenty of experience with all kinds of truck accessories including truck tool boxes near Blaine. We hope to cover the many benefits of truck tool boxes for you here along with providing some answers to the most common questions about these products.


Benefit #1 – Extra storage! Truck tool boxes are great for tools; however, they can be used for hunting gear, clothes, you name it! With a truck tool box, you can carry the things you need in your truck without taking up precious cab space or the entire bed of your truck. They are a great option for people who work out of their truck or for people who use their truck for recreation.

Benefit #2 – Keeping your stuff organized! Truck tool boxes often have several storage compartments to keep things organized and easy to access.

Benefit #3 – Keeping you items safe and secure! Most truck tool boxes are lockable.

Benefit #4 – Keeping your items dry and out of the elements. Speaking of protection, did you know you can get tool boxes that work with a tonneau cover? You can have handy access to tools AND keep your bed free of the elements at the same time. If that is of interest to you, keep reading as there is more info on that later in this blog.


How are truck tool boxes mounted?
Truck tool boxes usually sit in the bed of your truck directly behind the cab. They attach under the rail of the truck to keep them in place.

Are they easy to install?
Yes. If you are a do-it-yourself kind of person, we say, go for it! The install is very easy. If you prefer having your tool box professionally installed in your truck, we can do that for you.

What are truck tool boxes made of?
They can be made from different materials such as steel, aluminum or plastic.

What brands do you carry?
We carry numerous brands such as Westin, Weather Guard, UWS, Delta, TrailFX, Dee Zee, Undercover, Lund, Owen and more.

What truck toolbox do you recommend?weatherguard
We pride ourselves in only selling good products at Toppers & More. With that being said, we can tell you what the top-of-the-line is and what is the most economical.

Let’s start with a top-of-the-line truck tool box. Weather Guard, while the most expensive, is an outstanding product. The quality of how they are built (with thicker steel than most), their locks and seal are all top notch! If you are looking for a good tool box that is more economical take a look at Dee Zee or Trail FX. Both of these make a nice product that’s easier on the pocket book.

What size is a truck tool box?
Truck tool boxes come in various sizes and styles, but most are 4-6’ long by 18-30” wide.

Yes, one customer favorite for this is called the swing case. It mounts behind the wheel well, a genius idea as that is often the most wasted space in a truck box. You can also get many tonneaus that sit behind a tool box. This is a nice option if you want more storage than a swing case and quick access, without opening your tailgate. Another option is a tool box/cargo box that sits under the tonneau’s cover.
