Why It's Hot: Your half-ton just became as secure as fort knox
With Stanley Tools’ truck box, you can take your tools where you need them and not worry about them walking off. You can lock the box to your vehicle and then program the alarm to keep everything secure.
The box is big, 160 l, but its wheels and extendable bar make it easy to cart a maximum of 130 lb. of gear around. It even has a removable organizer inside to keep your screwdrivers from rolling around. ($300; stanleytools.com)
