The DeeZee Way

DeeZee's commitment to "add more life to your truck" is reflected in the design of this Red Label toolbox, which boasts a number of features that will make your life easier and maximize the life of your toolbox without breaking the bank.


DeeZee's Red Label toolboxes come with an Alumaguard body channel for further stability

Designed for Durability

One piece of Brite-Tread aluminum with welded ends makes up the body of this toolbox. 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 toolbox corrosion and damage to your stored items. A closed-cell foam gasket offers additional protection from water, and the specially designed, crowned lid boasts full V-pan stiffeners that make it extra strong. An Alumaguard body channel provides further stability.


DeeZee's Red Label toolboxes include self-centering latches, which ensure perfect closure every time

Easy Opening and Closing

This Red Label toolbox is designed with two locking paddle handles, gas shocks and self-centering latches. The guide plates accompanying the two stainless steel paddle handles and the gas shocks allow you to access the contents of your toolbox with minimum effort. Simply release one of the handles and the gas shocks automatically open the lid, so you can get into the toolbox with just one hand free. The self-centering latches ensure proper closure every time, and the integrated lock, operated with the provided keys, deters theft of your belongings.

Video Transcript for DeeZee Low-Profile Crossover Style Toolbox Review - 2015 GMC Sierra 3500

Today in this 2015 GMC Sierra 3500, we're going to show you the DeeZee red label truck bed tool box, part number DZ8170LB. This is what the tool box looks like when it's installed in the truck. As you can see, it sits on the rails, but it does still have a low profile. What I mean by low profile is that this distance from the top to the bottom here, which is a lot shorter than some other boxes. A couple other things, the tool box has a construction that's all aluminum, and in this case, we have a black finish on top of that. We see it has two latches on here, one on each side, so that you can open it from either side of the truck. On the driver's side is the only one that actually has a lock, and it comes with two keys.

Simple key lock right here. It goes into the stainless steel construction of the latches. All right, now, we'll get one quick measurement below the tool box inaudible 00:00:51. In this case, we got about ten and three-quarter inches of distance. This actually gives you a lot of room in case you have to slide in some objects that take up the full length of the bed. There's also a shelf that goes inside; you can slide it to either side that you want.

Whichever works best for you. Also, if any water gets in here or condensation, there's also some drain holes one on each side. We'll go ahead and take a look at the lid here. This has a continuous hinge that goes all the way across the tool box. It's nice and strong, and it won't go anywhere. Plus, there's a very generous foam seal here to help keep the box weather-tight. There's also two gas props installed on the lid; helps you control the lid as you raise it and close it.

Now, you notice the latch for the lid, it actually pivots. That helps it engage the lock on the bottom a little bit easier and smoother. It was designed to be this way. All right, the first step of our install is to go ahead and get the tool box ready. To do that, we'll need to install these pads that go underneath the bottom edge of the tool box. That'll separate the tool box from the top of your bed rails.

This is simple adhesive foam. Let's go ahead and put it into place, and we'll cut off our excess. Start off mine maybe an eight of an inch from the outside edge. Not much left to cut off. We'll remove that; we'll do the same thing on the other side. Let's go ahead and put our tool box into place. We'll get started; we'll just slide it up. We'll push it all the way forward to the cab of the truck, and just let it sit there, and we'll go ahead and test the lid real fast to make sure that it doesn't interfere with the cab. Looks like we're in good shape, so we'll go ahead and center the tool box left to right, and then we'll drill one of two mounting holes into the tool box itself. I think that what seems to work really nice is to look up toward the front corner. We can align it with one of the grooves on the bed rail. I took this corner here and maybe just under a quarter inch away from this, it's nice and even on both sides. Now, before we drill holes out, we'll go ahead and cover our hardware and how it works. Pretty simple; it's just this jay-bol 00:03:13 right here that grips underneath the edge of the rail. We'll use a nut, lock washer, and a flat washer to hold it in place; you'll have one for each side. Before we drill our hole, we'll get a quick measurement from the edge of the bed here to the inside edge of the tool box. We've got a little over an inch and a quarter, so we can transfer that to the inside of our tool box and know where to drill out. Now, different trucks may have a little bit different measurement, of course. With our tape measure in place, we'll measure over maybe about three-quarters of an inch and drill our hole. We're going to be about the center of the box. When we drill out our hole, we'll use a seven-sixteenths drill bit. We'll go ahead and put our bolt into place, then we'll just add our hardware on top. To the top, we'll add a flat washer, lock washer, and nut. We'll leave this hardware loose now as we install the other side. With our hardware loosely installed, we can go ahead and tighten it down using a nine-sixteenths socket. Now, when we tighten it down, we want to be even on both sides. We don't have to crush this. We don't have to have it super tight, either, but just enough to keep it from moving around. All right, that's all it is to install it. Let's go ahead and get the tray out of the bottom and put it into place. With that, inaudible 00:04:49 finishing from a DeeZee red labeled truck bed tool box, part number DZ8170LB on this 2015 GMC Sierra 3500.

I was so very thankful & relieved to get expertise advise before I bought this tool chest. It fit perfectly in my boyfriend's 2005 Dodge Ram 1500! All the tools that he needs to travel with fit perfectly & he absolutely loves the chest. 261906

Great tool box, nice amount of storage. Purchased this model so it could be hidden away under my tonneau cover, fits perfectly. Removable tool tray has proven handy for keeping smaller items like ratchet straps and bungees easily accessible and organized. The only thing I didn't like are the little yellow "plugs" inside, when my cover has been up and the bed collects water, they aren't very effective at keeping the water from coming up through the bottom. 430676

Review from a similar DeeZee Red Label in Truck Toolbox


Received the toolbox on 1/3 along with additional tray. Good service considering the weather around the U S. I saw in one of the correspondences a request of returning a picture after the toolbox had been mounted. The box was mounted inbed on a Ford 150 Platinum with an accordion style bed cover fully deployed ( Pic 1 ). Pic 2 shows there is plenty of room between the top of the lid and the bottom of the bed cover. Pic 3 shows the bed cover fully stacked with plenty of room to fully open the toolbox lid. Thus the toolbox has weather protection and additional security by salvaging the bed cover. I looked at other styles but found the molding of the fender welds not conducive for inbed mounting. Although there is space between the sides of the box and the side beds, it allows me to take advantage of the tie-downs mounted on the side beds. Thanks for the prompt service and staying in touch 114260

  • We have just what you need. For a tonneau cover that is designed for your 2014 Ram 3500 with an 8 foot box that is designed to work with tool boxes you would want the Access Tonneau Cover # 834532001859. For a tool box that would work great with this tonneau you would want the part # DZ8170LB as this is 20 inches wide like what the # 834532001859 is designed to work with.

  • You will want to take some measurements to see if a toolbox will work with your fifth wheel trailer on your 2004 Dodge Ram with the 6 ft bed. You will want to slide your fifth wheel hitch forward all the way and take a measurement from the hitch to the inside wall of the front of the bed. This way you will know if you have the clearance needed to install a toolbox. The DeeZee Red Label Truck Bed Toolbox, part # DZ8537, is designed to fit your truck. It measures 37-1/8 inches long...

The largest available crossover toolboxes for your truck are 8.4 cubic foot models such as # DZ8170SB.

The only toolbox that would be compatible with this headache rack is a chest style toolbox like the DeeZee Red Label Truck Bed Toolbox part # DZ8556 which only fit the 6-1/2' and 8' beds.

  • Fit of DeeZee Red Label # DZ8170LB Toolbox in Bed of 2015 GMC Sierra Short Bed
  • The base of the DeeZee # DZ8170LB truck bed toolbox measures 60-3/4 in width. I wasn't able to find a 100 percent confirmed width of your truck bed at the top between the bed side rails, but the width of 63-1/2 inches kept coming up. If that's the case, there will be a 2-3/4 inch difference in the width of the box and the width of the truck bed. If the toolbox is centered, that'd be about 1-3/8 inches per side, which is a pretty good fit. Just to be sure, I'd recommend you measure the width...

  • Can a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Be Installed on a 2014 or 2015 Ram 3500 with Rambox Side Storage
  • Since you plan on towing a fifth wheel trailer, the best option for the truck you are looking at, is an 8 foot bed without the Rambox. The issue with the Rambox is that the manufacturers of the hitches and installation kits have not tested for fit on models with the Rambox. As you mentioned, the bed is narrower which could interfere with the operation of the fifth wheel locking handle. Another issue you will run into is you will need to replace the OEM pin box with a Sidewinder. The reason...

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.
