    Anyone here have a truck toolbox made by DECKED?

    Their website alone is almost enough to get me to order. Seeing if you folks might have any informed opinions on them.

    I don't have one, I have a hard tri-fold tonneau instead, but from what I've seen, they are pretty damn stout. I'm still a little old school and prefer a black diamondplate aluminum toolbox. I don't think they've been out long enough to get any long term reports/reviews. Weatherguard, for example, has been making toolboxes forever. I had one on my last truck and it was built to last.

    It's funny because I've been looking at weather guard. Evidently the newer ones aren't the same quality as the previous generation. The welds on the ones I've looked at are laughable and they seem easily dented. I do like the power sync options though.

    That’s a shame about the new Weatherguard. If I recall, UWS is supposed to be a decent toolbox as well. Maybe I’m just old (55), but a plastic (I know, I know…it’s not “plastic”) toolbox is just going to be a hard sell for me.

    I've got one but only had it on my previous truck about a month before that truck was totaled due to getting rear-ended by an inattentive driver. Haven't put it in my new truck yet until I get my bedliner sprayed in. So far have been happy with it but obviously no long term report. Seems well built and as far as I could tell all their claims about it are true but only time will tell.

    There’s just something about a diamondplate toolbox that just looks bitchin’ on a pickup.
    Now I’m looking at the UWS site, shopping for a toolbox!

    Those Chandler boxes look really nice! Now I’m talking like Chandler Bing and annoying my wife; it’s a gift! Haha!

    Those Decked systems are really nice. Talked to a guy with one that was fully kitted for hunting. He loved it. Everything was out of sight, out of mind. lot of scratch for it though.

    The last place I worked, some of the electricians had pickups fully set up with Decked slideouts. They also had toppers on the bed. When you get the cases and boxes they offer for the drawers, you can build a really nice efficient setup. They do obviously make your truck bed a lot shallower, but in the right application they are great. Very heavy duty and I saw no issues after quite a few years of use.
  14. I built one with a single full width drawer for our 2004 Suburban. I absolutely love it. Keeps guns out of sight and I only loose the 8" or so of height.

    I helped build a homemade version for a trip to Maine in a Chevy Luv in 1978 :crackup:

    Worked great for sleeping on the platform with all our stuff below it, no pimping roll out drawer tho, just hinged trapdoors.

    Did it have carpet on it? If so, I think I rode in the back of that luv to the middle of nowhere Baja in about 79 or 80...lol.

    Ahh the 70's when everything, no really EVERYTHING needed carpet.

    Nope. Just plywood, kind of a last minute thing before we hit the road. Doubt she would have sold it by 79 or 80 too.

    I looked on the Decked website and I liked it right up until I saw that the price is the same for my 5 1/2 ft bed as it is for an 8 ft bed. No way I'm going for that.
