Which Tuffy boxes do you use?

A specific question on which ones do you have/use and any pros/cons to them...Seeing that the truck is a Soft Top, I am keen on having everything (I mean everything except only for the Hi-Lift) in these boxes.

Why Tuffy? Cause they are ready-made and will eventually be of better economic value than doing something locally and redoing it every couple of years (this D90 is not to be sold ). Also, I'll anyways be shipping in the center console so that I'll have my radio safe, so I was thinking of getting the wheelwell boxes as well.

On the other hand, I can easily get 4 Pilican boxes here and bolt them up in that space...+ the fabricator in my is dying to work on some custom ones...so I'm a wee bit confused

I wanna hear bad things about Tuffy!

Well, I had tuffy boxes in the back but I sold them and got these


As far as Tuffy goes I think the bigest ones that fit over the wheel wells are these


As far as bad, well if you scratch them up god and drive around in the rain with them allot they do rust a little. I also don't like the lip on the top of the box, when pulling things out of the boxes it gets caught up on the lip.

Don't forget to Search first then ask questions later! The loose nut behind the wheel

FWIW, I got the 12" center console and if I could do it over again I would get the 10". I liked the fact that I had some space between the seat and the stock cubby box. The 12" Tuffy takes up that space and I've banged my elbow on it more than once. With the 10" Tuffy I would still have that space and more elbow room and I think adequate storage space.
