Under body storage boxes w/ stock bed

I'm in need of more storage for tools, cant throw them in the bed because I have a sleeper built into the camper shell. Has anyone cut up their stock bed and added some under-body storage boxes like the flatbeds have? If you could include pics it would be great.

There sis a guy running around here with a 94+ DUDGE.
Green with silver on the bottom. He has aluminum diamond plate box mounted just in front of the wheel well in the silver portion. It is hardly noticeable and pretty slick

Sweet how the '60s and '70s trucks had 'em built in. Pretty lame that they're not doing it now.

Something like this but retrofitted to a new style. Or like how Dodge has the cargo pockets in some of their trucks bedrail.

Might look goofy but what about a roof rack with some type of low slim lockable storage box inside it. Be a PITA to get stuff and put things away. Just my 2 cents

Forgot about them. Did a search on roof rack toolbox and found some ideas.

i was thinking of of the older body styles with the compartment, it is kind of strange they didnt do something with that under-rail space in our models. I was considering some chevy saddle tanks at first for extra VO capacity, but with a 35 gallon bronco tank in the rear it makes more sense to use it for tool space now. I would just cut the side off the bed and install the boxes, even if they werent flush I could use them as a step to access my roof rack.
