fatboyracing what did you decide on? I am looking for a swinging box as well as a traditional bed-crosser. Found a review for the one TexasScout linked to, it looks good? Is that the one you went for?

Thanks in advance!

I bought an Undercover box. They have 2 variants (SC500D (driver) & SC500P (passenger). CarID seems to only have one (driver). I bought mine from Amazon & they have both. Its good but not everything I desired. If you have Utili-track (I don't) you may have fitment issues. its 16" tall and needs 1/4" clearance below to swing. Its durable plastic (dropped it once, didn't break). The box is riveted to the metal swing-frame and has multiple holes that they rivet through based on what truck they're building it for. it'll hold a fair bit, but it does have a 75lb rating... you're not throwing chain &shackles in it and still be able to swing it... They send it to you with sheet-metal screws, I bought my own bolts and installed it properly. Sticks out a bit further from the edge than I expected ~ 8" and sits ~5" from utili-track floor channel. It has a moveable, shallow top tray and the forward area is divided from the rest of the space (tray can sit above it but will not seal it off)
If you use the cut-outs in the side of the bed with 2x6 for load management (see attached pics-taken last yr) this won't work for you as the swing mount frame blocks/covers the cutout. If you have bed extender it also will not work together...
PROS: stows all my EDC truck gear (tow straps/shackles/ratchet straps/small asst tools/safety triangles...) without cluttering up the cab as before when it was all in 2-3 small toolbags, sturdy (reinforced plastic bottom)
CONS: pricey

It does what I want, its removable so I can still get work done (firewood, yard debris, HD/Lowes runs...). Haven't decided if I will get the passenger side or not. I also use a 20gal storage 'trunk' (from HD) that I just strap down for larger/heavier stuff.

First image shows the trunk, 2nd image a 2x6 in the cutouts with 4 containers full of sand (~60lbs ea)secured with a cargo strap.
