Before you begin
Take note of exactly what you need from your tool box. Think of what you do with your truck on a daily basis, and what you may need to store most often in the box. Take the time to properly measure the space available and be cautious of any part of your truck that could obstruct the tool box door. This is an investment towards increased efficiency and productivity, so take the time to think about it.
Here is a step-by-step guide to help you build the perfect underbody tool box!
Choose from options below - Steps 1 to 3 are mandatory
We offer a variety of finishes to fit your personal preference. Our most popular choice, checkerplate aluminum, offers a sleek chrome finish and a shiny look, with a diamond (checkerplate) texture designed to reduce scratches caused by travelling.
Smooth aluminum provides a slick matte finish, which many people may prefer. It’s also easier to buff and paint in order to give the box a second life.
Our stainless steel mirror finish offers an amazing look, that is stronger, more resistant and doesn’t rust. However, this finish is more expensive than the other two finishes and does have size restrictions to keep in mind. A stainless steel mirror tool box cannot be bigger than 36 or 40 inches because the thickness is about 1/16 of an inch. If you wish to have a bigger stainless steel underbody tool box, the mirror effect is not possible, but we can go the route of a matte finish with a thickness closer to .125.
As for the thickness (.125 vs .188), most people opt for .125, which is very solid and robust. For those carrying really heavy items like generators, or for those whose staff are not careful with their equipment, they may opt for .188, which is about 25 per cent more expensive than .125.
Trebor currently offers three options when it comes to handles. Our signature Trebor T-handle is our most popular and cost-effective option, with a key lock. Ask about our three point lock system for better door closure.
The waterproof, adjustable whale tale compression handle makes your truck’s tool box much easier to open and close, while preventing water infiltration.
The compression anti-rack is a more luxurious option, with a double-lock mechanism that offers better door closure, and an exterior locking mechanism for extra protection against theft.
Here, you can add options like gas shocks, shelves, drawers and hooks. Be specific! Whatever you choose, please indicate in this box how many, where you would like them installed, at what height and at what distance from each other. Also include what material you’ll be using on each component. Adding a shelf? What will you put on the shelf? Want a drawer? What goes in the drawer? What you plan to store will have an effect on the type of tracks used for the drawer.

If you would like your tool box to be under warranty, it must be installed on brackets. Brackets will help to support the truck’s distortion when it moves. The size of the brackets will be automatically added to fit the dimensions of the box, but it is possible to adjust the height of the brackets so that the tool box sits lower.
Brackets can be made in steel or aluminum. Steel is more affordable, but many opt for aluminum which is lighter, but just as strong as steel. “Steel brackets and primer” simply means that it comes with primer to prevent rust.
