Can you secure this particular toolbox to the bed of your truck? And, if so how?
asked by: Paul S
To install this DeeZee Specialty Series Storage Box # DZ6535P in the bed of your 2011 Ford Ranger you will require drilling through the box and the truck bed and then installing hardware of your choice. I would use at least 4, 3/8 inch Grade 5 or higher bolts, two washers on each bolt, one inside the box and one outside the bed, and nuts, along with Loctite 242, # LT37418, to be sure the nuts do not work loose. The location of the mounting hardware is strictly up to you and should be located to work with the bed of your truck. Be sure not to drill into any wiring, brake lines, fuel lines or other components when drilling.
