I am wanting to get a XL450 B
I know they are nice boxes but I am worried that I can't get enough tools in it that don't have a slot or peg ect.
And will still need another box of some kind to hold larger tools. Any thoughts ?

Well that's a lot. I have some square tube I want to bolt to the bottom of the box before I bolt it to my flat bed so I can take it off with a forklift if needed.

My cousin bought one and filled it. Carried it around all fall in the back of his truck or on the utvs depending on where we were and we made every repair that we needed on the combine and grain carts that we needed out of it. The only thing I seen needing an extra box for was cordless impact guns. But I think a lot of it is loading it with what tools you need for certain jobs depending on what time of year it is. If you?re wanting to dedicate something to full time every repair you would ever need I?d look for a cheap truck with a utility bed

That?s a good idea mine are bolted down and stay with the truck but In a regular bed truck the forklift would be handy because they are heavy when loaded

I don't know if Menards carries the portables, but they do have the roll chests with their masterforce brand for much less money.

I just seen the triangle boxes at our Menards. I have had one on my pickup for 10-15 yrs and love it.
