When you say utilit track in the way, are you meaning the front track? Or do you mean the cleats were in the way while installing? Guess I am asking how the utili track was in the way.

the side utili tracks are in the way. the brakets hook under the bed rails but the utili track is in the way so all i did was install them at the very end of the utili track. the only problem with this is that i was limited on space for drilling holes in the box for the hardware to mount up to. i tried to take a picture but its so tight and cramped you couldnt tell how it was mounted.

$ 800 w/o winch.
$ 1100 w/ winch.
Powder coated grey.
Yes it will work with your LE.
I can give you the white upper valance also.
Im in Irvine.

That is a great looking box.

The only problem now is that it needs a nice Shrockworks Front Bumper to add to the rugged look of the box. Especially one with a good winch on it to get you and or your friends out of tough spots!

No one will notice the Sly Tuna bump. (?)

Am not familiar with how Kobalt boxes mount up. Might be worth finding J hooks. I'll try to post some pics tomorrow of how my weatherguard mounts up. Basically it catches the bed lip then as one tightens the bolt, it snugs box to bed lip.

Follow this link to the install instructions for my box and look at the mounting hardware, you might be able to do something similar.


Look at bottom of page 3.

a j-hook set up would be nice and simple. some manufacturers go way overboard with their designs and dont think about practicality
