Pics

Thought I would post up pics of my Troy 32" box. I must say it's one of the most useful things on my defender.

Locks match my Tuffy center console keys as well and a snazzy LR oval logo decal to boot .
I also used 1/4" SS bolts and rivnuts (2) with washers. Should be good enough to hold it down.

Hi Troy,

The thread hasn't been updated in a while so I hope you are still around?

Just sent you an email on 2 of the 32" boxes.

Thanks

Ian

My boxes just landed. Got to say these things are even better than I expected and Troy is one awesome guy to deal with.

Thx again.

Ian

Edit - He made a special run to get mine done so he's got some in stock ready to go. Hint, hint...

Anyone figure out a good way to keep the tufty locks from spinning loose? The hole in my tufty is keyed, but not in the Troys box.

Mine have never turned on me. I use the little finger pulls - not sure if they make a difference or not. Perhaps yours aren't tight enough?

I have the finger pulls as well and they have stayed tight too. I actually installed the little dust covers too although I am not sure if they actually do anything! One downside to the finger pulls is that if you ever run a tonneau you have to be careful when installing

I have considered removing mine because they can also snag clothing when climbing in/out as my passengers tend to do. I find I don't use them, but just use the key to lift the lid anyway.

You also have the lids reversed so from the outside of the truck you are pulling up and pushing away to open your lids where as those of us with the standard lids open to the outside so we are pulling the lid the entire way...not that the key won't work in either condition but rather just pointing out a subtle difference for anyone who hasn't seen your boxes. On a somewhat related note, I do not believe Troy is making the reverse hinge boxes anymore (cost prohibitive) but I did talk to him a while back and said that if folks wanted to do a group buy he could make them more economical

Dave;

Try tighening the lock nut on the back side of the lock. There should also be a locking style escushion ring between the nut and the box itself.

Thanks!

Troy

------ Follow up post added May 1st, 2012 12:38 PM ------

I am happy to make a run with the hinge reversed but I would need to have at least 5 committed to purchasing them.

I do not have any 19" long versions. I only ever made one run of these and it took a long time to sale all of them. I try and make my runs in blocks of 10. That way the shop time is productive and the waste is minimized.

As most of you know this is not a business. I just do this on the side as the result of folks having an interest in them.

Thanks!

Troy

At the moment boxes are $250 each plus shipping. (based off my material cost for my last run) Hinged reverse does not cost any additional if I can do at least 5 at one time. I like to fabricate at least 10 at a time to keep waste to a bare minimum.
