How Do You Install a Truck Bed Box?

Installing a truck bed box is an easy and cost-effective way to personalize and improve the utility of your truck. It provides a secure, weatherproof storage space for items like tools, camping gear, hunting supplies, and other items that you don’t want to leave exposed in the elements. In addition to security and protection from the elements, a truck bed box also provides additional storage space for items that may not otherwise fit in the cab or bed of your truck.

When installing a truck bed box, it’s important to choose one that is made specifically for your make and model of truck. This will ensure proper fitment and proper installation.

Most boxes come with all necessary hardware, including mounting brackets and screws. The brackets are usually designed to mount on the inside of the bedrails, while screws should be installed through pre-drilled holes along the edges of the box.

Before you begin installation, it’s important to clean the area around where you’ll be installing the box. This will help ensure that dirt or debris doesn’t interfere with proper installation. Once you’ve cleaned off the area around where you’ll be mounting it, place the brackets inside of the bed rails and secure them with screws or bolts.

Next, place the box into position on top of the brackets. Make sure that it is properly aligned before securing it with more screws or bolts through pre-drilled holes along its edges. Once everything is secure, use a sealant or caulk around any gaps between your trucks bed rails and your new truck bed box to prevent potential water leakage.


Installing a truck bed box is an easy way to personalize your vehicle while providing extra security and storage space for essential items. When installing a new truck bed box on your vehicle it’s important to choose one specifically designed for your make and model of truck so that it fits properly. Also take into consideration any additional hardware needed for installation such as mounting brackets or screws as well as sealant in order to prevent water leakage from occurring after installation is complete.
