The best toolboxes for your pickup

Updated Dec 11, 2014

One of the first accessories that finds its way onto a work truck is a toolbox, or in some job applications, multiple toolboxes.

That’s why it’s important to choose toolboxes of the highest quality in construction and security features.

The good news is there are dozens of regional and national toolbox brands from which to choose, and plenty of styles to fit the need, whether it’s a conventional cross-bed toolbox or a custom-fabricated unit unique to your business.

There are also a number of combo tool/fuel boxes that are a great upfit for a work truck or trailer.

Combos work well when you need an extra 30 to 50 gallons of diesel on hand to keep a piece of equipment working when there’s no time to shut down and make a fuel run or wait for a fuel delivery.

When it comes to prices, toolboxes are a lot like the tools they carry: you usually get what you pay for in quality and performance.

If you are accessorizing a new work truck, or replacing an existing toolbox, here are some of the newest products that will keep those valuables secure and under cover.
