Maybe I am missing something but I do not see your new email address and you do not have the email option in your user profile.

Intrested in a box or 2 but wanted to ask a few questions first.

I also do not see an email, am also interested in your boxes, and also have a few questions...

Those things do look nice.

I guess PM him. Dave, your email address I have is no longer valid so make sure PM's aren't being sent to it - I PM'd you yesterday.

New E-mail Address

Sorry for the confusion.

New e-mail address is as follows:

troy-smith@cox.net

To answer a few questions.

They are painted black with a crinkle automotive paint. I can install locks. Tuffy locks run an additional $15.00 each.

Custom lengths can be done although I do not encourage it. I am happy to price any length you prefer. I use to offer a 19" long option that took the place of a single rear jump seat.

I can quote shipping if you send me your zip.

Thanks guys!

Troy

Storage Boxes

I have 32" long boxes ready to ship. I can be contacted at:

troy-smith@cox.net

I could also deliver to the ROAV Summer Rally to save shipping.

Thanks!

Troy

Troy is a talented guy, he works on my truck in Khakis and a dress shirt- he seems to repel dirt.

Finally have pics (took the camera to the truck and now have posted pics to 4 threads...)

The PO of my truck nicely had rivnuts installed in the fenders...so it was as simple as drilling 4 holes in the box and installing:

Have been very happy, but did add some weather stripping as the 50mph wind and inch/hour rain I drove though with the top off caused a little water to get in...

Man, this thread just depresses me. I've been trying to get some rear boxes going in my truck for almost four months now. Troy's boxes aren't going to work for my truck (roll cage in the way), so I asked an engineer friend to help me out with the design in SolidWorks. Now he's gotten busy and hasn't been able to finish it. I'm starting to think that I'll never have boxes...or any of the things that I planned on installing in them (HF radio, stereo amp, powertank...)

It may sound sacrilegious, but you could get a troy box and notch it for the roll cage and rivet in a patch to fill the notch. The bends would be real simple to get done.

Have you asked Troy if he can do a set that will work with the bars?

Storage Boxes

As previously mentioned I have my standard 32" long boxes ready to ship. The offer still stands to deliver to MAR as well.

I now also have two (2) boxes that I fabricated that are only 9" deep so that they can accomodate early D90's and D110's with the roll bar that runs along the fender well. (these are basically rectangular boxes) Exact spec of my standard box just not with the angled portion that steps into the fender well.

I appreciate everyone's kind comments concerning quality, responsiveness, shipping, etc.

I got Tory's boxes 4 years ago and all I have to say is they are hands down the best accessory for the truck. I but everything in them.

Not to hijack the thread, but what have you guys used as spreader plates when you installed your boxes. I have two that i purchased from a guy but have yet to install them. Just super large washers? or Some cut to shape aluminum sheet metal with some epoxy to hold it in place? Plan on using rivnut and bolt like someone else did on this site.

Troy, still interested in a 32" box with a reversed hinge. Did you ever get any more info on this? I cannot make MAR this year but Charles Galpin has offered to transport it home for me.

I used rivnuts on the belt rail and plastic spacers I had a hole already on the wheel well from a seat belt so just drilled a hole thru the bottom of the box.

One is going in the 90 the other in the 109 SW w/hump on tire well. Was told by the guy that i bought them from that i should use either a large washer or a plate cause he had noticed that over a period of time using the box. That all the pulling/tugging/pushing against the box had caused it to loosen around the bolts he used to hold it down to the tire well (body, not the box itself).

four rivnuts on the bottom of each seem to be holding up for me.
