The DeeZee Way

DeeZee's commitment to "add more life to your truck" is reflected in the design of this Specialty Series tool box, which boasts the same features as the Yellow Label tool boxes, including several that will make your life easier and maximize the life of your tool box.


DeeZee's Specialty Series tool boxes come with a lid stiffener for extra lid rigidity

Designed for Durability

One piece of Brite-Tread aluminum with welded ends makes up the body of this tool box. By minimizing the amount of welding that goes into the box's construction, DeeZee diminishes the opportunity for cracks and leaks to form, thereby reducing the risk of tool box corrosion and damage to your stored items. A closed-cell foam gasket offers additional protection from water, and a hidden hinge runs the length of the box, deterring theft. The specially designed, crowned lid boasts a half-pan stiffener that makes it extra strong.


DeeZee's Specialty Series tool boxes come with fixed, double-hook latches, which are designed to withstand heavy use

Easy Opening and Closing

This Specialty Series tool box is designed with locking paddle handles and gas shocks. The guide plates accompanying the paddle handles and the gas shocks allow you to access the contents of your tool box with minimum effort. Simply release one of the handles and the gas shocks automatically open the lid, so you can get into the tool box with just one hand free. An integrated lock deters theft of your belongings and is operated with the provided keys. To close, simply push down on the reinforced lid. The stainless steel, fixed, double-hook latches, which are designed to withstand heavy use, secure the lid easily.

Review from a similar Specialty Series in Truck Tool Box


The DeeZee tongue box has been an ok box for storing all my off-road gear for my RZR and trailer items. Haven't had any water leaks or problems. Latch and lock have worked correctly. I mounted it on the tongue of my Aluma utility trailer that I use to haul my RZR. Most of the gear I have stored in it is pretty light weight. This box seems to be lite weight constructed; not sure how it would do for heavy items. One year using it and it still works and looks good on my trailer. This review template would not upload my photos??

Review from a similar Specialty Series in Truck Tool Box


Seems like a solid lightweight box. The latch and locking mechanism are solid and the hinge is reinforced which is nice. I also like that the gas strut for the lid has a sleeve so if any gear shifts it won't interfere or damage the strut.

Review from a similar Specialty Series in Truck Tool Box


Boxes arrived in 3-4 days. I got used ones and was very happy I didn’t pay the full price. They work fine just a few dinges. I painted the inside white to see tools easier. The boxes are aluminum, seems very light duty. I wouldn’t step on top of it. When you close the top, the sides flex when pressure is put on the latch. I would have preferred a heavy steel, but needed a small box for the location and this was the only one I could find. For an ATV it might work ok. Overall pretty happy- I just installed so we’ll see how they hold up over time. Next time I would look for a heavy steel one. I paid for 2 used ones the price of one new... to me a new one would not be worth the price they are asking... just too light duty.


Comments
One year later the boxes are still holding up great. I’m happy with them.

Review from a similar Specialty Series in Truck Tool Box


First, I like it a lot. There is lots of room inside, it meets my needs and I would buy it again because I think it is a very good value! Cons, Steel latch which means 3 months outside and it is already rusting. (I will eventually replace with a marine grade.) The unit is very strong on the outer sides, but not so much in the middle. I am 200 lbs and can stand on the outer sides of it, but I would not try to do so in the middle. (Note - Manufacturer does NOT recommend standing on it at all and I am not suggesting you do!) Depending on your specific trailer frame and what you intend to put in the tool box you may need to add some bottom support. You can see where I added a support bar in the front. If I was doing this mount over again, I would add a support or 2 in the middle because a couple of spare axle hubs and a bottle jack are causing it to sag significantly.

Review from a similar Specialty Series in Truck Tool Box


I use this on my custom teardrop trailer and I really like this tongue box.
One year later, this is holding up well. The only thing is that the lock hinge started to show a little rust almost right away, but it hasn't progressed too much. It was a little disappointing though.
That said, I love that this has a padlock instead of having to use yet-another small key (I already have 3 just for my teardrop). It wasn't something I considered originally but figured out as soon as I put my combo lock on it.
I do really like this tongue box. It was the perfect addition to my teardrop build.

Review from a similar Specialty Series in Truck Tool Box


The box is good quality and it fits on my atv. It has a dust and rain gasket on the lid but, it doesnt have any latches to keep the lid closed. I guess I missed that in the description because it doesn't say there are latches, it just says its lockable. If it had a latch it would get 5 stars.
Doing bisiness with etrailer is easy and totally convenient

This utility chest only closes full with using padlocks such as part # 37DAT

which is 37.13 inches long x 19 inches wide and 16.62 inches tall. It comes with a locking handle as well as two keys.

The box us acceptable for the price. It serves propose for occasional travel. Probably not the weight and quality of components for constant use, but perfect for travel trailer.

Fits 2 group 31 batteries with room to spare. High quality box that looks and works great. The box does not come with battery hold downs, which I prefer because I could mount the batteries any way I wanted.

Be sure to consider that adding heavy items generatorbatteries,etc. adds to the tongue weight and towing towing capacity limits.

Review from a similar Specialty Series in Truck Tool Box


Great deal. Purchased at "dinged" version of the product so paid about $87 vs. $290 for undamaged product. Dinged version was noted as "everything works", and it does. About 10-15 mins of gentle banging and twisting it looks as good as new, after a little bit of use. Nothing stays new forever. Winch and battery fit inside on the bottom nicely, will install a a pull out shelf/tray above the winch/battery for storing tie down straps and bolted a solar trickle charger on the lid to keep battery charged. A nice piece and a cost effective find for me. Thanks.

  • Availability of DeeZee Truck Bed Toolbox Crossover Style - Aluminum - Silver # DZ6170N in Black
    The DeeZee Truck Bed Toolbox - Narrow, Crossover Style - Aluminum - Silver, part # DZ6170N, is the silver color toolbox. To get the same toolbox in black you would use the DeeZee Truck Bed Toolbox - Narrow, Crossover Style - Aluminum - Black, part # DZ6170NB. Both of these toolboxes will fit the 2011 GMC Sierra with the 5-1/2 foot bed, the 6-1/2 foot bed, and the 8 foot bed. It will not fit the StepSide or SportSide models. I am including a video review of a similar toolbox and it will...

  • Use of the DeeZee Tool Box # DZ6170N when Towing a Fifth-Wheel Trailer
    If you have an 8-foot bed 2007 Dodge Ram 3500, it truly depends on a couple things. First off, you need to make sure that the toolbox does not infere with the hitch in your bed. Since the DeeZee # DZ6170N measures 12 inches wide, you need to make sure that this width does not interfere with your hitch in any way. In order to make sure that you have enough room, I recommend measuring the distance between your truck's bulkhead and the hitch to make sure you have plenty of room. While DeeZee...

  • Can a Toolbox be Used while Towing a Gooseneck Trailer with a 2001 Ford F-250 Short Bed
    The space needed in front of the gooseneck ball depends on how large the coupler is that fits over the ball. Remember that the coupler can not only rotate on the ball side to side but also tilt forward and back some so you would want to take some measurements without the box installed to determine about how much travel there is at the coupler and then get a box that will fit. The other thing to be concerned about is when making tight turns. If the gooseneck trailer is squared off at the...

  • Is There a Tool Box That Will Fit a 2006 Dodge Ram Crew Cab Short Bed
    Take a look at the Dee Zee Toolbox, # DZ6170NB (silver) or DZ6170NB (black). These boxes are 69-3/4 inches long x 12 inches wide x 14-1/4 inches tall so they will fit in that 14 space between the wheel well and the front of the bed on your 2006 Dodge Ram Crew Cab, short bed. These boxes have a capacity of 5.75 cu ft.

  • Does The DeeZee Truck Bed Toolbox # DZ6170N Include a Sliding Tray
    I contacted our representative at DeeZee about the Truck Bed Toolbox # DZ6170N. He informed me that the box does NOT include a sliding tray because of how narrow the box is. However, other DeeZee Toolbox models like the # DZ8170LB includes a plastic tray in the toolbox. The # DZ8170LB will fit the 6-1/2 foot standard bed of the 2007 Chevrolet Silverado.

  • Does DeeZee Make a Low-Profile Crossover Tool Box For 2014 Dodge Ram 1500
    The closest low-profile, DeeZee tool box to the # DZ6170N that you referenced is the DeeZee Red Label Low-Profile # DZ8170L. The # DZ6170N has outside top dimensions of 69-3/4L x 12W x 14-1/4T inches and sits 5 inches above the truck rails on your 2013 Dodge Ram Pickup. The same outside top DeeZee # DZ8170L dimensions are 69-3/4L x 20W x 12-1/5T inches and sits 2 inches above the truck rails. The important base dimension is the same for both boxes being 60-3/4 inches long. The low...
