Thank you for the kinds words Mr. Walter!!!

I have 19" long and 32" long boxes ready to ship out immediately.

Under the "Custom Mods", near the bottom, "Storage Boxes for Series and Defenders" you will see some photos posted of the 32" box installed in a ST. I would be happy to send you another photo if you would like.

Thanks!

Troy

Brian - PM sent.

Aaron - Thank you for the kinds words. I can install a lock if so desried. For photos, go to "Custom Mods" / "Tool boxes for Series and Defenders" you will see photos prior to install and post install. Ken was even nice enough to include a few with a Tuffy lock installed. The hinge is a full length heavy duty piano type hinge welded to the lid and bolted to the box. The box in the photo is of the 32" vartiety and I now make them in 19" long. Please let me know should you have any other questions! I trust you were satisfied with the other parts?

Thanks again!

Troy

Troy - I may be in the nmarket for one of your 19" boxes for when I'm not running with the rear seat in. Could you e-mail the price of the 19" box?

Exclamation

I want to thank everyone for the interest on the storage boxes. I am in the process of making more 32" long boxes and will try my very best to have completed before the end of August time permitting. Several folks have recently inquired and 5 or so are spoken for. I have 19" long boxes ready for shipment.

Thanks again for all the kind words and the interest and patience!

Troy

Just wanted to throw another "me too" in to the happy customer bunch. The boxes are awesome and Troy is putting a ton of effort into helping us with these.

charles.
p.s. I'm bringing enough weather stripping and tool box liner to do 2 x 32" boxes to MAR if anyone needs it (left over from doing mine).

Hello Troy, I was wondering if you had any boxes around that you made?
I don't know if you still make them or not, but if you do I would love
to get my hands on two of them.

Please let me know

Troy,

Just wanted to tell you again how happy I am with my Troy Boxes.

I was fortunate enough to get away from the shop hit the trails again a few weeks back, and the Troy Boxes really proved themselves. I had always been happy with the boxes for routine maintenance and such, but it was while I was heavily loaded that I noticed how handy the Troy Boxes are. For example, here is a pic of my truck loaded:

http://www.expeditionexchange.com/du...m/DSC_0714.JPG

With the ARB fridge and Pelican 1660 back there, my truck's cargo area is pretty much full. I usually put another 1650 on top of the 1660 and then strap them down. It's pretty full like that.

Yet my Troy Boxes are off to the sides and still accessible. The others on this trip had to remove or rearrange their items to gain access to their tools. But the Troys let me access my field tools easily. We ended up using my field set a lot for the field repair work we had to do because my tools were always so accessible.

Here are two more pics of my Troy Boxes:

http://www.expeditionexchange.com/du...m/DSC_1031.JPG
http://www.expeditionexchange.com/du...m/DSC_1030.JPG

As you can see, the Pelican 1660 even makes for a nice table/shelf for my field tools.

The MAC Tools magnetic tray is just stuck onto the top of the Troy Box's lid. I use this tray to hold bits and pieces during field repairs to keep them clean and prevent losing them:

I love my Troy Boxes:

Thank you yet again, Troy, for such a wonderful product. My Troy Boxes definitely rate as one of the best mods I've done to my truck.

What's the handle for John? Did you make the boxes into a psuedo-carry case?

I tried to make my Troy Boxes look as "factory" as possible, and the closest thing was the Genuine Parts shotgun boxes, and the shotgun boxes have the handle there for when the shotgun boxes are detached from the vehicle. Same for the LR oval on top of the box.

I also copied the black Hammerite powdercoat finish on the shotgun boxes:

http://www.expeditionexchange.com/jo...k001%20046.jpg

The locks also look like the Genuine Parts shotgun boxes, but are from our Snap-on guy. The locks are keyed alike with all of our shop KRL's:

http://www.expeditionexchange.com/jo...k001%20048.jpg

This way, I have one less key to carry on me.

The Snap-on locks have detachable tumblers, so you can get all of your Snap-on items keyed alike if you wish. Our Snap-on guy Steve Hertzmann does this for us free of charge whenever we buy anything with a Snap-on lock. He's very good to us.

Here's the direct link: http://www.defendersource.com/mod/toolbox/index.htm

The ltrue link is located on the main page for the D90 Source, not the fourm. In the header locate the "Custom Mods" link and click on it. It should be in the navagation links on your left at the very bottom.

Man those look killer John! Damn I should have never sold my set.

Do you find the single handle strong enough for the box? I am assuming you unload the box before removal. Do you have any problems with the boxes moving around or does the carpet pretty much hold them fast?
