I dont know much but i can tell you i bought a diamond deluxe "D" style 2 hole a few months back and i really like it for the most part,alot of people had bad stuff to say about them but i to am on a buget so it was about my only option.I have heard the aluminum boxes dont hold up but the way i look at it guys buy aluminum toolboxes and leave them in their truck for 10 yrs with no problem so if you dont beat it up or abuse it why would it be any differant with a dog box. Just my two cents,but if you go with diamond i can recomend the t handle latches instead of the slam latches.

Hope it helps,B.Miller

Mountaintop. Call Ben or John and they can work out a quote for you.

They are top of the line. One thing about these, and I don't have one olny know people who do. They are heavy so make sure your truck will handle it. Tom might be able to comment more on this. Also, Scott C on here has one and told me how hard it was to get it into his truck. He runs a marina so they had a forklift and he said they would not have gotten in in without one. These comments are not meant to be bad about mountian top at all, best box out there, just things to think about if you get one.

I have a pair of SuperSprings on my F150 and no sag at all. Without them there was about an inch of sag. The SuperSprings gave the truck a much better ride. I have a 3 hole, water tank and two drawer platform that also took a forklift at Mountaintop to put it on. Without the platform, two or three (young) guys could lift it up.
