Sidebox Setups.


Just got these boxes from META last week and got them mounted the other day.

Interested to see what those of you running sideboxes have done shelf/ cubby wise on the inside.

Re: Sidebox Setups.


Sadly they dont fit things in cases well.
Coffee cans and totes
I had them when primarily roofing and siding. When I went full remodel I switched to a saddle box and packed the crap out of it as well as the extra cab. I still miss the full bed.

My first boss had those boxes on his trucks. We would scatter $100s of material along the road when they would fall off taking a corner

My dad had them on his 83 f250. He wasn’t the most organized person to begin with and I just remember as a kid every time he would open them lots of stuff would fall out.

Those boxes are deep and tall. They also have reinforced angle steel on the bed side with supports. Hopefully he doesn't have them flying off any time soon.

Deezee is the brand.
