I formerly owned a DEE ZEE full size box of comparable price (practically the same). I sold it to get this Craftsman box, wayyyyyy better. This box is upgraded from the former as follows, instead of two paddle latches on the front, the Craftsman utilizes push button on either side, making access easier. The hydraulic shocks lifts the lid straight up everytime. The shocks are protected from possible load shifting by aluminum walls. The lid itself is double thick and insulated instead of being a single panel of aluminum. The only negative thing I could mention is that both release mechanisms must be locked to secure the box, you can lock one side and still have access from the other side, I suppose this could be a bonus feature to someone. Over all, the Craftsman box is above the competition. I am more than satisfied with my purchase.
I would never recommend this truck box to anyone! All the welds have holes and burn marks. The welds are not applied straight and the overall workmanship is down right embarrassing. If I was the carrier of this product, I would be embarrassed. I ordered this box and when I came in to pick it up; the wrong box was inside the packaging. Seriously! How hard is it to put the right part in the correct packaging! Sears... You are a disappointment! How do you manage to keep your doors open!
I have had this box for about four years now. It still looks new and works the same, no complaints.
easy to install and roomy. Like the styling, extra depth and the poly tray.
i love this box its deep enough, and wide enough and long enough for all of my tools and it is securable very easy and it locks and opens and unlocks very easy
