or no car
Anyone have ideas how to mount a box with an easy way to remove it if needed? I'm looking for a box that sits in the truck bed and not over the rails.
Said he didn't want over the rail....Place your tool box on your truck where you want it mounted. From underneath, mark where you bed line is. Remove the box and drill 2 holes on each side just about 1/4 out from your line.. then mount the tool box back where you want it. Drop some J hooks with thread on it.. The hook parts will sit under the bed lip.. and then tighten then down..
No holes to drill in bed..

I mounted a toolbox chest in my ex's ram and we put 4 bolts through the floor and 2 through the back. We thought about using some quick release option but soon realized that if you're carrying that much stuff to warrant a chest, you don't need to be taking it out. Her's was always loaded down with random stuff but always seemed to be filled up.
My point being, if you're really going to be loading up the chest, I would look into a very secure way to keep it mounted down all the time as you could easily have a couple hundred lbs of goodies and the last thing you want is some pins wiggling free or round out bigger holes and doing more damage than good.
I have been looking for 6 months for a good used chest just like the one you are describing. No dice local as well! I also didnt want to break the bank but also wanted one that could take some abuse. I am permanently mounting it to the bed as mentioned above. I have a soft cover on the truck as well.Good point, i've decided to permanently mount it now I just need to find a box. Craigslist has a ton of over the rail types for cheap but no dice for what I want. May have to take the hit on a new one

I have seen ones at HD and Lowes for mid 200's. Construction grade and price jumps to mid 300's and up. Decisions, decisions, ...... which is gonna hold up.:dunno:
