    We have Pro-Tech boxes. This company also makes a lot of the aluminum boxes and headache racks you see on the big trucks. These boxes are very popular in the NW.

    We have these boxes on our pickups, except special ordered extra deep.

    I have a Rawson-Koenig aluminum one for over 10 years very well made all latches and hinges still work find. Went threw several cheaper ones like TSC don't waste your money buy a quality one and only spend once.

    Have a Husky on the work truck as well, and I must agree with the latch problems. My lock has failed, too. Managed to mangle one latch into working, but as this truck hardly leaves the mine nobody seems to be interested in replacing it. Those Joboxes look schweet, though.

    Back in 93, my dad bought a pair of 7 foot Weatherguards that mount on the bed rails. They worked really well until the fall of 2001 when the truck they were mounted on died. We parked that truck and never took the boxes on because they wouldn't fit on the truck that took its place. There are still some things in the boxes, and they don't leak and haven't rusted or anything. Were hoping in a year or 2 to get another fullsize and mount them back on a truck and put them to work.

    Check out American Van---prices and selections of the major brands are hard to beat.I've bought a bunch of boxes,racks there over the years--real good service.
