Thread: Box options for Truck with Fiberglass Cap

  1. #1

    Default Box options for Truck with Fiberglass Cap

    Looking for options for what folks do for dog boxes with a truck with a fiberglass cap. Right now just have two side-by-side airline crates, but with the addition of a new dog, was thinking 3-hole slide in, perhaps on a slider (http://www.bedslide.com/products/st_carpeted.html) so I can use the rest of the bed. Thoughts/Opinions?

    Here is what I have inside my truck cap. The Stainless Steel crates where originally made for my Tahoe. They where made by Ainley.

    Never argue with an idiot. They'll bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    Greg,
    Where did you get your fans, and what brand are they?
    Also, how do you have them hooked up? Thanks,
    Dave

    I believe they are endless breeze, run on 12 volt.

    Bedslide greatest invest I've made. I keep my box bolted down against the cab. This thing slides out 7' of a long bed.

    Suggestion go with storage under the box, makes it easy to get to

    so you bolt the box onto the slide, up near the front of the bed? That is what I was thinking of doing. What brand slide and box do you use? Was worried about it fitting.

    I have the Bed Slide and a Klineline box. The box has top storage which is about 6' off the ground, bottom storage would be so much easier. Make, make, make sure you have tons of ventilation, stationary as well as going down the road.

    I like Greg's setup, add a bed slide and you can roll everything out.

    BTW, you can go get an inexpensive 50' outdoor extension cord for about ten bucks and wire the whole truck. I used trailer plugs to wire the bed fused from the battery, box and cords. I can plug and unplg everything in a couple of seconds.

    Yeah a buddy did he had it custom built so it would just fit through the rear opening.

    He used 12V radiator fans for ventalation. They pull a lot of air and are much quieter than the bildge fans I have.
