Turning truck box into a cooler?

I know i've seen on here somewhere where guys have done something to their tool box to be able to use it as a cooler too. I'm about to buy a truck box, and i have plenty of oppurtunities to use it as a cooler too. If anyone knows how to do this just let me know.

Drill a hole in the bottom and put a plug in it when you dont need to drain it?

I've seen those dog boxes that look like tool boxes with hoses going into them. They must be some sort of air conditioner for the dogs. Maybe a form of that will work?

lol..nothing. but its just one less thing to carry around. and the tool box can hold about 100+ cans. so those days that you and the friends are outside at the lake or something, you're already prepared.
