Over time, various things keep making their way into our trucks. We bring such items as tools, flashlights, gloves, and other things into the vehicle, use them perhaps once, and leave them in there, confident that as we'll need them again soon, it's just easier to have them there already when the need for them arises again. And of course, all these things accumulate as they are constantly added on to. What generally results is a mess on the front seat, on the floor, under seats, and behind seats. And this is just the cab alone. The truck bed can be another story altogether.
One very effective means of keeping tools, gear, and other accessories in a safe, ordered and convenient place, all together and out of the way is to look into the installation of aluminum truck tool boxes. Tool boxes, which come in a variety of material components, sizes, and placement options, are the ideal addition to any pickup truck, a considerable convenience for owners, especially ones who have a lot of different items they use frequently. Keeping gear together in one place can ultimately save a lot of time searching around for smaller, easier lost or misplaced items. And with aluminum truck tool boxes that have separated, lockable compartments, comparable tools and accessories can be put together in one spot, eliminating the need to get at all stowed equipment in the tool box each time a specific item is looked for.
The super heavy duty grade aluminum tool boxes many fine companies offer are American-made, manufactured with outstanding workmanship, and are extremely easy to install. The silver diamond grid aluminum unit is really attractive, is easy to clean, and goes well in virtually every pickup truck bed.
One premier retailer in this industry, Stor-All, also features a "Deluxe Metal Stor-All Box". Smaller than the tool boxes mounted in the bed of a truck at 4' X 6" X 12", its size is ideal if attached to the rear wall behind the seat of the truck. This three-hinged locking lid box, durable yet rather lightweight at 20 pounds, also stows well on the floor of the truck or in a car's trunk.
