What type of tool box should we get for the F350 SB - to pull a 5th wheel...we don't have the hitch yet nor the 5th wheel...but we'll be getting the 36MKE in the fall...just wanted to pick up a tool box in the meantime. We've already brought one back because it didn't work out.

Thanks...

Hello Kessie... Welcome to IRV....

I picked up a low profile over the bed rail box from Schucks, that has been well worth the investment. it still allows adequate clearance for the nose of the 5er

I just use a plastic rectangluar one that fits between the drivers wheel well and bed front. It is about 4" shorter than the bed rail. There is a particular design that fits in the same place, but it also extends over the wheel well, and may be used on either side. This leave the main portion of the bed free for hauling "things".

I just bought a UWS in-bed truck box. Soild lid that has sprayed foam in-between two sheets of metal not letting the lid to flex. Makes it easy to open and close from either side. Slightly tapered at the bottom on the sides to clear the angles in the super duty bed. The box ran me $427 plus tax. It was model # TBC 62WS

I use a chest type box that sits down in the bed and is level with the top of the bed rails. This provides me more space than the over the rail type boxes and eliminates any clearance issues. I previousley had a fifth wheel box from Highway Products that was very well built. I could stand on the thing with no flex whatsoever. I also have their partner box in the rear of the bed in lieu of the tailgate. it has been a great setup for me.
