I have found a Diamond Deluxe 2 hole box (46x46x20) from a guy in Kansas for $450. It is about 3-4 years old and in excellent condition. He will also drive it to Denver for me. This box does not have a storage top, it has door covers, just plain jane. What do you guy's think? Good deal?

For Alaska, check out the insolation. Aluminum will suck the heat right out of a dog.

It has corrugated plastic insulation on all of the exterior walls in the dog compartments. The seller is a guide in Kansas. Do you think I would be better off using the plastic kennels with the insulated covers, or get the box? I am just thinking of how to configure the truck and pups for the drive to Wasilla and the pass. Any idea's?

Any info on the BassPro box?

Look on the Diamond Deluxe web site. They have a 46x46x20 no storage box listed for $410.00 that sounds like it could be like the one you are looking at. You would have to add shipping to this price.

Yeah, that is the one. I think I will go with the Basspro box.

The box at Bass Pro is made, I'm pretty sure, by the same guy that makes the Diamond Deluxe. Call him directly, he is very helpful and can tell you the different options you can get.

Owens makes a nice box sold at boards4less.com
shipping might be prohibitive to AK
I personally wont have another Alum diamond plate, too much polishing, scratch easy, mine are all Stainless Steel

What do the sled dog people use?
