Tool box on truck

I just bought a new deep low profile black tool box from tractor supply. I
went to put it on and noticed that when I centered it that it has about a
1"-2" gap on both sides from reaching the edges of the bed. Is this how
they all fit on the 08's or do i need to get a different brand. any one have
pics of theirs? thanks

My fullsize from tsc was the same way. The fit to the edge in a half tone, but ours have wider beds. You can get a bigger box I'm sure. I just lived with mine not going all the way to the sides.

99.9% of all toolboxes are like that for 1 main reason. Most people attach their toolboxes with J-hooks that hook under the bed rail. All three toolboxes I have ever had have been attached with J-hooks. If you didn't have the space there, your only option to attach the toolbox would to be to drill holes in the bed rail.

You'll need a photbucket account or similar (they are free) and you copy the link to the picture, not the address up in the web browser, but when you hover over a pic in photobucket you can choose which options and 1 of them is copy. Then you come over to the thread and paste the links here.
