    Does anyone know a good brand tool box for the front of my big tex 5x8 open trailer? Im looking for a black one it doesnt matter whether it has diamond plate or steel.

    i also want to see if theres one that sits at rail height or below. Thanks

    i've seen some of the plastic ones from home deopt or lowes on trailers by me. in fact a friend has used one on his car trailer for years. i have a 4' buyers brand aluminum dp underbody box on my trailer tongue. i added a metal basket on top of it to hold gas cans. check ebay for a good used one of any brand:waving:

    Tractor supply has a nice plastic or Diamond plate one. The plastic is running $100.00 with tax, were the Diamond plate is double the price.I went with the Plastic.

    Thanks for the replies. The only problem i see with the metal is backing into it or hitting it causing it to get dented.

    ill look into the plastic ones.
