Truck tool boxes

I have been lookin to get myself a toolbox for the bed of my truck. I started looking at Weatherguard and like. I also found one called Alumiknox at Alumiknox™: The Ultimate Truck Box. By West Desert Outdoor Products. This box looks stout and it looks stronger and more secure than the weatherguard. Does anybody have any experience with alumiknox? I like the price of them and they look really strong and well made. Let me know.

Thanks
Dean-o

Thats a real nice looking box, Actually wish i had saw that when I got mine. I like the padded top box idea.. The price is a bit high but for what you get looks like a good deal, with a 3 year warranty too! Got any other pics of that grille guard? I'm going to be looking here soon for one, and some of them look like they stick real far away from the grille..

I don't have any more pics but if you go to Ranch Hand - Your #1 Source for Truck Accessories they have some pictures of them there. It does stick out a little bit but it is a great guard. I did end up welding some tabs to the front to put on my lights too.

Thanks beaky73. I have looked at the rocker pods quite a bit but Id rather have a tool box. I have a fold-a-cover on my bed now and I am not very happy with it. The cover lets in a lot of water and because it stays closed the water never drys and it starts to get moldy. So Im gonna change things up and put in a toolbox and take off the cover.

Im going to get the Weatherguard tomorrow. It is kind of $$$ but they look the best in my opinion. They also have a lifetime warranty and I can get spare parts most places around me. I'll try and get some pics up soon.
