Pickup Pack Tapered Design Pickup Toolbox

Leopard Edition by Highway Products

The Leopard edition features our trademark (powder coated and shaved) diamond plate finish. Unsurpassed in looks, this finish will turn heads and attract followers with questions. Be prepared!

Tapered Design

Traditional tool boxes sit a few inches above the side rail of your pickup. This creates a 'lip' that you have to reach over as you place tools in the box. We eliminated this lip by tapering the box and lid. This feature allows you to reach deeper into the tool box. It also creates a bigger opening for longer items. If you have a high profile pickup truck then this tool box is for you.

The Pickup Pack™ is a unique alternative for companies needing organized storage and lockup security without the cost of a service body. All in an attractive aluminum body that can be easily installed on your pickup in a few hours.

This "service body" in a Pickup Pack™ includes a gull wing saddle box, two lockable low side boxes, a flat or dome center hatch, a headache rack, and a removable ladder rack. When closed, the hatch locks the tailgate, making the bed area secure and weather resistant. There is still an 8"-10" space beneath the tool boxes for sheets of plywood or other cargo.
