Tool Boxes

So I'm trying to decide on a tool box for my new truck. I've gotten it narrowed down to what I think I want: looking to get a single lid, 68"-72" wide box, only real requirement is that it is deeper than 18". So I have been looking at Weather Guard and Delta. WG seems to have plenty of boxes that are deeper than 18" and have some nice features like grommets in them for wiring pass throughs. Only real issue I've found is they are really heavy, even the aluminum ones seem to be over 100lbs. I don't have a major issue with that, I don't plan on moving it much once it is in there. Delta on the other hand has a couple different models that are 18"+ but they seem to taper in at the bottom and not have the same depth all the way across. I did have a Delta Low Pro on my old truck, and it served its purpose well and still is a great box.
So basically asking if anyone has any experience with either company?
Thanks.

I dont own either of those but have heard nothing but good things about Weather Guard. Heard there tough and very hard to break into. Im in construction so i see alot of tool boxes. Its kinda like when you look at a job site and almost all the trucks are fords most tool boxes are Weather Guards. I have a Tractor Supply box (made by DeeZee) now and its really not the best, real flimsy and looks like you can break into it easily but works for me. My tools stay in the cab and i just keep the stuff that you should always have with you in the box.

Go with the weather guard hands down. They'll last as long as you keep your truck, a delta box will be sloppy after 5 years.

I would recommend the a Weather guard. I still am using a weather guard that I bought in 1998 on my other truck. It still looks great and is still watertight. Going to get another one forvthe SD in the spring.
