Crossbed Truck Bed Tool Boxes
Crossbed is the most common style of truck bed tool boxes on the road today. I see more of these boxes on the road, in magazines, at car shows and being sold than any other. Crossbed boxes have more storage space than most other pickup truck tool boxes. They also come in a diversity of styles and designs to fit nearly anyone's needs.
The most popular truck bed box is the single lid box. This crossbed design has one unique lid with two latches to open the lid from either side of your vehicle. These boxes can vary in price from under 200 to around 600. The two lid cross bed truck tool box is another favorite style. These boxes open from both sides of your vehicle. They are priced about the same as the single lid. Remember there are many producers of all these crossbed boxes so take your time and look around. Many companies are producing these boxes. Some of the most popular companies are Dee Zee Delta and DeflectaSheld. Crossbed boxes are available in aluminum steel and plastic. They can also be purchased as a low profile box which is not as tall as a standard crossbed box. The low profile box provides better visibility through the rear window and a less prominent look to your truck bed. If you'd like your crossbed box to be easily removable, some new products can make that happen. Some new manufacturers make truck boxes on a rail system so you can slide your crossbed box from the front to the rear of your bed.
There are also installation systems that allow you to quickly fasten your box to the truck bed so you won't need a single tool to remove it. Whatever style you choose make sure to look for the best deal. Don't forget the shipping costs either. Some online retailers have free shipping for any of their truck boxes. Freight charges will apply to any truck box purchase without free shipping so look for free shipping before you order.
