Gen 1 Truck Box Storage Box Tool Box Pics anyone?

Hi all, I’m looking to get a storage box for my ’83 to use for camping and other uses, something I can pull in and out when needed. Been shopping around and obviously the circumference of our Gen 1 beds have changed over the past 30 years compared to newer trucks. If I’m not mistaken the G1 beds measure approx 56” from inside to inside. I see boxes for sale on average 60” and 62”. I’m assuming this is the width measurment that includes the “Crossover” that lays on top of the bed rails. I found one other box that measures 55” but I think this will be too narrow. So I’m wondering if anyone has a 60” – 62” on their G1 and if these are too wide.


Anyhow, I’d appreciate any input and pics of G1’s with storage boxes, brand and measurements for reference. Much appreciated! Thanks!

I have considered getting a small chest tool box that would sit down inside the truck bed

Here is mine. It is a Delta removable unit and I built a custom mount from SS square tube so it is secure and does not rattle.

I just bought a Husky Truckbox today at Home Depot for $260. Kind of expensive, but it's a pretty decent truckbox. It seals good, and the locking mechanism is pretty stout.

Here is a picture of the model number on the inside



A shot of the gap between the wheel well and truckbox



Then a few shots of what it looks like on my 81 pickup

Haha! I just bought the same box probably at the same time as you. I haven’t had a minute to put it in, but by the looks of your photos it looks like we picked the right one. Especially being these boxes are made and designed more toward newer trucks. Looks great! Being I have a longbox I already measured and mine will clear the wheel well by far. As for yours, the box looks made for it. Thanks for the pics!

@suncomb – really nice custom box you have there for sure!
