If you would like to buy a certain auto or truck accessory, but feel that you do not have all of the information you need to make an educated decision, you should read through our Buyers Guides. They are incredibly helpful in explaining the different features in the various available products. Do you know how a low profile toolbox differs from a crossover toolbox? Would an over rail or under rail truck bed liner better suit your needs? Which kind of tonneau cover best allows for flexible cargo sizes? Check out the buyers' guides to find the answers to these questions!
As explained in the Drop In Bed Liner Buyers' Guide, an under the rail liner is the easiest to install. All you need to do is slide the liner into place and snap it into place beneath the rails, no extra hardware required! Alternately, an over the rail liner requires six clips to keep the liner securely in place. Both over and under rail liners are manufactured by STK and have lifetime warranties. They are a great addition to any truck, and will protect your truck bed's paint job from scratches, dents, and dings. They also have deep ridges that cushion any cargo you transport as well as make any water build up easy to remove.
There are six separate Buyers' Guides that discuss truck tool boxes, including an explanation of low profile and crossover tool boxes. A Low Profile Truck Tool Box is not as tall as a regular tool box, and therefore will not block the view out of your rear window. A crossover tool box is positioned along the front of your truck bed and rests on your truck's bed rails, leaving space between the bottom of the box and the truck bed. These two features are not mutually exclusive, for example, Owens makes a single lid, low profile, crossover tool box in its Garrison line.
If you read through the various Buyers' Guides on tonneau covers, you will see that a roll up tonneau is a perfect purchase for flexible cargo sizes. It can be completely closed to protect smaller cargo, or it can be rolled up from the back to the front. This leaves the entire cargo bed open, leaving room for tall cargo, and the tonneau does not have to be removed! The other kinds of tonneaus (hinged, tri-fold, snap, and seal & peel) all have specific advantages too, but for this particular need, a roll up is definitely the way to go.
