I don't know why you'd want to other than just to hide the spot where it comes through the bed floor and up?
You wouldn't be able to open the toolbox unless you cut a circle around the stacks, then carried that circle to the edge of the box, then it would be open still....

I don't have any pics for ya but i have seen the tool box pushed fairly snug up to the stacks and then a piece of matching checker plate with cutouts for the stacks covering the span from the toolbox to the front of the box.

I can imagine your idea and I think it will be cool. Have you put any thought into the little details like how it will affect your clamps and stuff? Might have to move the stacks inboard and to the rear some so they will fit inside the box? And are planning on using a box that sits flush on the floor and modding it or a box with the 6"ish gap under it that hangs off your bed rails?

that sounds like a good idea also... i was going to do the same thing but in reverse... i'm going to get a low profile box that hangs over the bed, and then make a cover to close the 6" gap at the bottem... i want to keep the stacks as close to the cab as possible to save on space in the bed since i only have a 6 1/2 foot bed... (now wishing i went with the long bed)

i think i'm going to buy everything and then go from there... might have to make my own clamps to make everything fit... i have the idea in my head just not sure if its doable... i think it is... but any advise is apreciated!

I guess it comes down to how handy you are. Anything is doable if you can build it or afford to pay someone to build it.

What if you took a box that sits flush on the floor and had your y-pipe and everything come up right inside it? Run it entirely inside the box and reman the lid to make it work with the stacks coming up thru? Will have some heat issues in the box for sure so will have to take that into account.

Crappy thing is that checker plate = expensive, roger? Especially if ur gonna start slicing and dicing lol.
