Anyone have sideboards that work with a crossover toolbox? I'm trying to figure a way to put sideboards on that don't interfere with my toolbox, but still let me tarp a load of sawdust....

I can build out of wood, and I also have a welder, so either way would work.

Look for pics posted from PremierLandscaping (Mark made some for his)

What sort of box do you have, single lid, gull wing? Do you want access while the side boards are in use? I think you could use PremierLandscaping or some of the others on this site as inspiration for a useful creation of your own. Make sure you post photos. Good luck.

Thanks for the advice,

I'm trying to find a way to put them on and still have access to the box. It's a single lid crossover. I'm thinking maybe if I put a back rack on, then weld up brackets that the boards would bolt to- essentially two piece sideboards so that the front, shorter piece would just come off with wingnuts to get into the box.

That way, I could leave the long sections on (similar to Mark's) all the time, and just put the short sections and a piece above the tailgate for hauling loose stuff.
