4 Best Truck Bed Toolboxes

Whether you’re driving a Ford Ranger or a GMC Denali, keeping your tools and gear organized is both time saving and cost-efficient. There are a few routes to go, including a variety of truck bed toolboxes.

We’ll take a look at four of the best possible storage solutions depending on the size of your truck bed and compartment’s purpose.

UnderCover SwingCase truck storage toolbox

The UnderCover SwingCase makes it easy to access what you need with a quick pull of the release lever. There’s no need to climb into your truck bed and search for items. These truck bed toolboxes are versatile, weather-resistant, and easily custom-fitted.

It’s lightweight, yet constructed of high-impact ABS material. The durable and weatherproof box comes equipped with a lockable lid. It quickly slides out if you need to take it with you, but you can also secure it to your truck with a padlock.

When you need a spot for your cold one while tailgating, the SwingCase doubles as a sturdy cup holder. At 16″ X 8.5″ X 34″, the storage box fits into a variety of bed sizes and holds up to 75 pounds of gear.

Dee Zee Single Lid Crossover truck toolbox

Constructed of .056 Brite-Tread diamond-plate aluminum, the Dee Zee Crossover is available in a polished or black finish. Designed to fit a wide range of trucks, such as Chevy, Ford, Ram, and Nissan models, the versatile size and added sliding tray configuration makes it easy to keep your gear organized.

Your tools stay protected from the elements with the help of closed-cell foam gasket seals. The Crossover’s heavy-duty crown lid, full-length piano hinge, and gas struts allow easy opening. Its lockable stainless steel paddle handles help insure your tools stay out of the wrong hands.

Easy to install, the kit comes equipped with j-bolts and foam tape weather stripping to keep your truck from getting scratched during installation. The lifetime warranty adds to the value.

Trinity Jobsite box

Made of reinforced steel, the Trinity Jobsite Box‘s corrosion-resistant gray powder coat finish equates to longevity and durability. If you need to carry certain tools or gear with you to specific sites, the Trinity is a versatile and manageable solution; the recessed handles provide an easy grip site.

Available in 36″ or 45″ options, you may decide to install the box onto your truck bed. The gas lift allows for easy access, and its tamper-proof locking system keeps thieves out.

Deflecta-Shield Ultima Gull Wing

The heavy-duty black or polished aluminum adds a sturdy solution to your pickup truck storage needs. Constructed in a three-piece seam-welded design, the dual lid provides quick accessibility to each side of the toolbox.

The all-weather construction, including commercial-grade gas struts and weather stripping allow for easy opening, even when the temperatures drop below freezing. The domed-lid design ensures your possessions remain protected from moisture.

Weather isn’t the only reason you need to protect your cargo. Thanks to the double stainless steel paddle locks, you’re able to secure your tools from thieves.

The Deflecta-Shield Ultima Gull Wing requires minimal drilling to secure the box to your truck. All hardware, including padded weather stripping to protect your truck from scratches, is included.
