Tonneau Cover with ToolBox?

I've been wondering if it is even possible to do a hard tonneau cover for my F250 with my toolbox in my bed. I've looked on numerous sites and even googled it, but have not found any as of yet. Is this possible, and if so where can I get one? Are there any sit sponsors that have them? Any and all opinions and ideas are welcome.
Thanks.

The hard cover woul dhave to hing from the back in order to open and clear the toolbox lid. I don't think that they make anyting like that.

Well I don't really need a hard tonneau, but I really just want something to keep the elements out, but was thinking a hard tonneau would also be secure. But I think I gave that up when I decided to go w/ a toolbox.

I was looking for the same thing, I ended up buying a Truxedo/ Plus tonneau with the tool box Incorporated in the front. It works good and locks, plus the Tonneau can't be opened, if you lock the tailgate.

I have a couple pic's in my garage.

Will that tonneau work w/ an existing toolbox, because I already have one installed in my truck, its from DeltaPro, and it is a fullsize toolbox. I paid about $400 for it, so I'm not planning on selling it to get a smaller one. I need a tonneau that will work around a toolbox, not one that comes with one. Thanks for the help though.

Where are the latchs to open your tool box, the sides or the back?

They open on the sides.
I also just called Truxedo, they said that I can fill out a sheet w/ the exact specs and get one custom made for my truck. So I think thats the way I'll go.

I thought about going that route also, but I needed a low profile tool box, so my 5th wheel would clear and all the LP toolbox's had the latches on the rear. So you would have to roll up the tonneau to get into the tool box. Not a problem in your case. Truxedo makes good stuff and stand behind their products. I know mine looks and works very well and keeps the elements out.

Yeah, I'm not planning on 5th wheeling at all, I am going to pull a dual axle trailer w/ another truck on it, but just going to do the regular hitch. Thanks for the help.
