I don't have any pics but I'd stay away from the Tractor Supply brands. I've had a couple of 'em, and on both them, the hinge and lid basically fell off the the tool box.

A buddy of mine has a new Kobalt on his '11 Ram and it seems like a pretty nice tool-box. Not sure on the price difference between the brands.

BetterBuilt (sp?) makes some nice boxes. I think that's who makes the one I have. And I ALSO believe they make Kobalt's boxes. But anyway, mine is regular diamond plate, but as for build quality, very nice. Only problem I've had was when I first got it. I kept slamming the lid too hard and it would bounce slightly and not latch. I found that there's no reason to "slam" it shut.

This is mine. Black diamond plate. And it is a tractor supply box, mine has held up very well. I have no complaints. I have the one that sits on the bed floor, I just like it better.

I have 2 large tool boxes in my '09

the back one is a custom built box
the front one came from TransferFlow, it has a 30 gallon gas tank & toolbox combo
Both are in bed boxes, both have Rectangular Steel tube between the toolbox & bed, to allow the debris to be hosed out.
The tops of the boxes are almost flush mounted to the bed rails, allowing me to have a tonneau cover

Some people like the bed rail mounted type, they allow you to put tools like shovels, etc. under the tool box

Cool stuff here - I've been wanting a toolbox but one that will sit under my tonneau cover. GTYankee - had not thought of skids on it for washing underneath - cool idea. Did you do that yourself??

I like the box cwakefld has but might be even better with a couple of skids welded to the bottom.

And I'm gonna google your Autonet wifi router - inquiring minds want to know!
