    Default Chevy Truck Tool Boxes

    My last truck was a regular cab, so I had to get a tool box to store my valuables when I went out and about town. It worked very well, I had a UWS box that I picked up for about $200 at a local aftermarket store in town here. I didn't have it locked down, but opted for the removable pins to be put in so I could take it out if I wanted to.

    Who else has a truck box and what type do you have?

    Huh, looks like Thule bought out UWS (united welding service) who made the box that I used to have.

    UWS is still a good "bang for your buck" toolbox and is still very popular. A step up from UWS would be Weatherguard or RKI, but they cost more. Personally, I prefer Weatherguard, but if $ were an issue, I'd have no problem buying a UWS.

    Here's a Weatherguard chest box:

    I have the factory cross-bed box that hangs on the Cargo Management System rails, as well as two of the side boxes that use the same rails. The main two reasons I went with these is the fact that they sit below the top edge of the bed rails and are less visible which makes them less attractive to thieves, and they use the same key as the door& ignition.

    Dee Zee makes a decent box too depending on what line you go with. UWS went down the crapper a few months ago. Very thin and not as solid as they used to be...

    If you go with Delta, step up to the Delta Pro line.

    I have the delta pro, and it looks awsome, and works just as good as any other box. yes weatherpro has the heavy feel to it, which i would rather have. but the delta pro looks and works just as good.

    the black and red delta pro logo also looks sharp with a black silverado (the black and red Z71 logo)
