Does anyone know where to get a good deal on one of these? I found the black poly ones pretty cheap-Are they any good?? I like the short style aluminum one northern tool sells too. But are their any other good ones out there?

whatever you get make sure its sealed well. my brother bought a poly/plastic "tool box" for his flatbed that wasn't designed for a trailer. so if he was driving and it was raining the entire inside got soaked.

i have always liked metal boxes for my truck, seems like a safe bet to me.

I was looking at tounge boxes the other day at the store, they cost as much as the truck toolboxes, and there is way less material to make one.

They are expensive, thats why I am trying to find a decent box for a good price
