Default Suggestions for toolbox/tonneau combo?

Hope this is the right forum, I searched and didn't find an answer to my question...

I'm looking to put a locking toolbox and a locking tonneau cover on my 05 1500 quad cab. *It needs to be:

-Theft resistant; Lockable and not a fabric material. *(Something like the Bakflip G2, but I don't know if the G2 locks)

-Waterproof

-Locking toolbox, preferably one I can get into without opening the cover

-I'll be adding a lockable tailgate handle.

-Budget: around $800-1000, but I may have some flexibility, this just determines how long I have to wait. Cheaper is obviously better.*

Suggestions? *Thanks!

Undercover makes a "swingcase" that bolts to the bedside and is totally concealed under a cover. It swings out to the tailgate, and it itself locks. Kind of pricey like $260 IIRC and small. I put one on mine because I didn't want a conventional box because I haul my bike a lot. It is small and pricey but works great for me.

You can go with an over the rail type box that's easily accessible and lockable...kinda ugly though.
For your criteria I'd go with a chest type box but fab up some rails for it to sit on to lift it about an inch above the rails then look at Undercover's short hard cover they make just for toolboxes. It's just a short version of their standard hinged hard cover and fits against the tool box instead of the front of the bed.
That combo would give you what you're looking for and still look pretty good...especially if you got a steel chest box and had it painted to match your truck then got the smooth, color matched version of their hard cover.
