Craig- I can put you in touch with Troy if you'd like. He's about 80 miles West of me. If he makes you a box or two I could bring them to Conclave.

Is Troy still making them? They are worth it.

When I got my box, Troy was randomly coming down to NC.

I researched every imaginable manufacturer when it came to finding a nice box for the top of the wheel wells (Zarges, Alu, Pelican, etc etc) and there really isn't a solution that looks appropriate for the space. On top of that you'd have to drill the box if you found one which is kind of silly.

I contacted Troy and ordered 2. Best decision, they're perfect.

I have one that I got from Troy many years ago. It fits like a glove in the back of our 88" IIA and it is holding up well. They are very well made and it locks up securely.

He is still making them. Saw a pile of them a week ago.

Here are the ones I designed with CAD help from brother-in-law. A little more interior space and slightly thicker steel. They were quite expensive to make, though. Keyed to match my Tuffy center console.

Good to know Len. I haven't seen Troy since last fall. I put Jonesy in touch with Troy. The last box I got from Troy I had him use the snap-on lock and finger hook on.

Something like this appealing?

Latch in place, removable, sealing, lockable…

This came with my d90. It's contoured to fit under the body side like the one Chris built. I am amazed at how much it holds.
I would imagine you could get one built without breaking the bank.

I put Jonesy in touch with Troy. Troy has 32inch boxes in stock ready to go as Len said above. Galpin runs these on both sides of his 90. I ran one on the right side of my 110 and it was awesome.
Troys latch is on the lid, unlike the one Kraig pictured.
If you run one on the right side you will have to make cuts on the back side so it sits over top of the fuel filler ramp.

These boxes utilize the space lost by most under the flare of the body.
