I just bought a tool chest from Lowes. I was wondering how those of you with tool chest bolted them down.

Thanks

I used four "J" bolts, available at any hardware store, to avoid drilling in to the top of the bedrail. Be sure to put down a strip of foam or rubber, etc. between the body and toolbox before you bolt 'er down.

I really like using bolts.
dam...beat me to it hahaha.

anyway, the FIL has his bolted with J bolts under the lip and he got some conveyer belt scraps to put under the tool box...where in the world does a normal person get conveyer belt scraps? i dunno...but it works well.

This may sound dumb, but...
I once had a truck that I wanted to bolt down the tool box.
I selected a 1/8 inch drill bit to starta pilot hole and drilled away
Wouldn't you know I hit the goddam fuel line right in the center of it.
Cost me a tow and a high pressure fuel line.
Now I figure I could have drilled about 200,000 1/8 inch holes in the bed without hitting the fule line, but I got lucky!!!!
just something to think about...:)
