Bedrug and Swing Tool Box

I am very happy so far. Also, look how nicely the Bedrug fits on the tailgate with built in step.

I have that bed box as well. As much as I love it, it's been nothing but problems. A week after Install I opened the bed to find it swinging back and forth. The bar that holds it against the bed sheared all the screws off. I replaced them with heavier screws and no problem since. I also noticed a horrible squeak, I thought for weeks it was my wheels, checked everything, almost went to the dealer when I slammed my tailgate and heard the box squeak. Put some grease on the hinges and it's been fine. Both very minor repairs, but things I shouldn't have to fix on a new box. All in all though, knowing what I have to do to make It right, I would probably purchase another for the other side.

Looks Great! Now give it the "knee" comfort test for future romps in the bed lol.

I'm having the exact combination installed next week, but also adding a snug top.

Hope mine dosn't cause problems, thanks for posting the correction.

I had Bullhide 4X4 install mine - everything is snug and tight - the bedrug and the swing case!

I did get down in the bed on my knees and it is sweeeet - feels like my living room! We haul skibikes in the winter and I am always getting down onto the bed to strap and unstrap them - and in the summer months I carry lots of roofing supplies and inevitably get down on my knees to do something - I am sure I don't need to tell everyone how much it hurts when a knee presses against the bed ribs, or worse yet, when you kneel onto a little object (little rock, bolt, nut, etc.)!!

The bedrug makes the bed of my truck capable of a whole different range of functions - it would be very easy to sleep in the bed too! For my use, with the Truxcedo covering things, it seems like a very nice upgrade!

Just got back from a ski trip - we have three skibikes so I am crawling in and out of the bed and getting down on my hands and knees to tie the bikes in. We also get in the bed to finish putting our ski equipment on - can I tell you how nice it is to do all of the above on the bedrug! I am a happy camper - now we will just have to see how it holds up when I start using my truck bed to haul around roofing supplies all summer long!
