Enthuze Truck Tool Boxes

Thursday, February 9, 2023

Pickup truck tool boxes are a great accessory that makes your truck bed even more versatile than it already is. If you use your truck as a work truck, then a truck tool box is invaluable for keeping your tools and equipment secure and protected. Even if you don't use your truck as a work truck, a pickup truck tool box is still a handy place to put things that you don't want to be exposed to the elements or prying eyes.

What Is a Truck Tool Box?

Let's take a look at what exactly is a truck tool box. Truck tool boxes are a bit like a metal safe for your truck. It typically installs at the front of your bed, behind the cab. It's much too heavy for a thief to easily carry away, and it's not easy to open either. The best truck tool boxes are usually constructed from steel, stainless steel, or aluminum. Some are also made from hard, heavy-duty plastic.

The most common truck tool box is an aluminum truck tool box. The reason for this is that aluminum is lighter than steel but also has a higher strength-to-weight ratio. Aluminum also resists rust and corrosion.

How To Choose a Truck Tool Box

Now that you know what a truck tool box is and some of the benefits, let's explore how to choose one. The two main types are crossover or cross bed tool boxes and saddle boxes. However, there are several other types as well, including side-mount tool boxes, gull-wing crossover tool boxes, under-bed tool boxes, truck chests, and truck fender tool boxes.

The crossover and saddle styles are the most popular. These types do not touch the truck bed, which allows for more storage room in the bed itself.

The main things to consider when choosing a truck tool box is whether it will fit your truck and if it will fit everything you want to put in it. Truck tool boxes are typically designated as "fits full-size" and "fits down-size".

Down-size trucks are compact or mid-size trucks like the Ford Ranger and Toyota Tacoma. Full-size trucks include the Ford F-150, Toyota Tundra, and Ram 1500 among many others.

What's the Difference Between a Truck Tool Box and a Job Box?

If you're browsing our site for a truck tool box for sale, you might also notice that we sell job boxes. Our job boxes are heavy-duty, weather-resistant boxes that are also designed to keep your tools safe and secure. However, the difference between a job box and a truck tool box is that job boxes are meant to be removed from the truck and used at a job site. This is different from truck tool boxes that are specifically designed to stay in your truck and be difficult to remove for would-be thieves.
