Tips to Purchase Tool Boxes For Your Truck

Keeping your tools corralled, protecting your truck bed from scratches and dents, and guarding your equipment fromthieves all make truck boxes a desirable addition to your vehicle. If you’re in the market for a truck toolbox, narrowing down your desires to specific features can help you to keep track of what you really want.

Mounting Style:

Tool boxes can be attached to your truck in a variety of ways. Styles that sit directly behind the cab on top of the truck’s sides can be useful as they allow access to the space beneath the box. Tool chests mounted directly behind the cab of the truck offer slightly less storage space, but they offer increased visibility. Truck boxes can also be attached to the side or tailgate of your vehicle, offering ease of access, and they typically take up less space than other options.


With different locking mechanisms, interior features, and door types, thinking about how you will be using the tool chest can help to limit your options. If you’ll be carrying specific tools in the truck with you at all times, make sure that the tools will fit in the box you want before purchasing it. A single door is the most popular style, but other styles can be easier to use for other items like groceries or smaller tools.


Steel and aluminum are the main materials for tool chests, and they’re available in a wide variety of colors and finishes. Steel can be powder-coated black for a sleek look, or diamond-patterned aluminum can be a tough yet attractive addition to your vehicle. Both materials are rust-resistant, providing long-term use that can work as hard as you do.
