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.

Video Transcript for DeeZee Narrow Crossover Truck Bed Toolbox Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the DZ specialty series truck tool box, in the narrow cross-over style, made out of aluminum, with 5.75 cubic feet, part number DZ6170N. This DZ specialty truck bed tool box is made of a rust proof, light tread aluminum construction. It is ideal for short bed, crew cab pick-ups or when you want just a little more space in your truck bed, yet still want to have a truck bed tool box. Let's go ahead and go over a few features of our DZ specialty series truck bed tool box. As you can see here, the box is completely covered in the bright tread aluminum, giving it a very nice appearance, as well as a nice texture to the box. By the box being as narrow as it is, it allows it to fit easily in a crew cab bed pick-up, a short bed pick-up, or if you want just a little extra room in your 8 foot bed pick-up. As you can see, the box has 2 handles. The box has a handle on this side, which is the driver's side, or the passenger's side here.

The box can be opened up from either handle. We'll unlatch the box. The box does have a lock built in, but it is only here over on the driver's side, so can steal 1:09 the box. It comes with two keys. They are keyed the same.

If we put the key in, now with our key in the lock, you can see our box still opens. Simply turn the key. Notice you can't unlock it, because the two handles are actually tied together by an internal mechanism. Come over here on the passenger's side. You can pull on the handle, but it does not unlock the lid.

There is just one lock, that you have to turn. It will lock both the driver and the passenger side handle. It has these paddle style handles that make it easy to get your fingers in and unlatch the box. Let's go ahead and install our new DZ truck box into our vehicle. We'll go over a few more features. Go ahead and we'll take our box.

Set it into place. We want to make sure that we center the box on the edge of the bed rail here. On this one, got there, go ahead and come over to this side. We're pretty close to being centered on this particular vehicle. With the lid closed, from the top of the bed rail here, we're a little over 5 1/2 inches tall, so you'll gain a little over 5 1/2 inches of height, from the top of your bed rail to the top of the box, with the lid closed. With the box in the open position, you gain just under 5 inches from the top of your bed rail. Again, with the box lid open, we have about 12 inches of width. The area that overhangs your truck bed side rail, about 5 1/2 inches. 5 1/2 inches from the end of the box, over, is where the bottom of the box will step down. When you measure from the bottom of the box, to this lip here, with the lid open, you have approximately 14 inches of depth. With the lid opened, the overall width of the box is about 69 3/4 inches wide. With the lid in the closed position, we'll have an overall width of about 70 3/4 inches and a width of about 12 3/4 inches. The DZ truck box does come with these gas shocks, to help hold the lid up, as well as control it as it rises. There is one on each side of the box lid, giving complete support to the lid. It'll hold the lid up in place, so that you can get in and gain access to your material or items that may be stored in the box. Another feature is, it's a completely adjustable locking mechanism here. You can slide in the track, as well as pivot it side to side, as well as adjust the striker pin up and down, in case if you need to adjust how tight the box closes. You'll also notice that there's a built in strength piece here. It's welded into the underside of the lid, giving extra strength to the lid, and keeping it from being dented, if you accidentally put too much pressure on the lid. You'll also notice here on the front edge of the box, there is another built-in piece, for added stability. You can see when you pull the passenger side handle, the bar connects both of the latches. If you would pull on the driver's side, it'll open up the passenger's side. Some other features of the box is there's a closed cell foam seal that goes around the lid, giving you a water tight seal, as well as a one piece piano style hinge that runs all the way across the lid, giving you a little added security. You can see here, we'll lock our truck box. It'll go against this latch here. With it in the lock position, you're unable to pull it. Put the key in and unlock it. Now, we're able to pull it and you'll see how the latch opens. You'll see the bar that runs over to the passenger side. It unlatches that latch as well. As you can see here, wherever a seam or 2 pieces of metal have to come together, it's completely welded, giving you a nice water-tight, as well as a strong corner or joint. There is no rivets used to secure the front, back, side or bottom together. It is all welded. In the front, the bottom and the back of the box are all stamped out of one piece. The only part that is actually welded are both the ends, as well as the corners on the top of the box. Everything else is made out of a one piece aluminum. To mount the truck box to your bed of your vehicle, we'll be using these J bolts. You can see here how they've got a loop. This actually hooks underneath the edge of your bed. The only drilling required is actually one small hole on either side of the box. I'll go ahead and take our 3 inch drill bit, which is the same size as our J hooks. We'll go ahead and drill out a hole. Here's how the hardware will go on, once our J bolt is installed in the box. You can see here, how the J hook hooks underneath the edge of the underside of the bed rail, as it goes through the box. Take our flat washer, followed by our lock washer. Finally, our hex nut. We'll then go ahead and tighten it down, so that you make sure that the J portion hooks underneath the side of your bed. Once that's tightened down, we'll use the socket here. Well put our rubber cover back on top of it. It will ultimately look just like this. We'll go ahead and repeat the same process over here on the other side. The truck box comes with a foam strip. It's actually applied to the underside of the truck box, so that you have a little protection between the truck box and the edge of your truck bed. We'll go ahead and center it up on our truck box. We'll peel the backing off and stick the foam strip underneath the truck box. We'll then go ahead and make sure that the adhesive fully sticks to the underside of the box, keeping the foam strip in place. Well go ahead and repeat the same process over here on the other side of the box. With that, that will conclude our quick look at the DZ specialty series truck bed tool box in the narrow cross over design, with 5.75 cubic feet of storage capacity, part number DZ6170N. .

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.

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


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


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

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.

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


Product does excatly what I want it to do Houses my propane Tanks and Battery with room to spare. Hopfully they won't get stollen again...


Comments
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


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


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.
