How Do You Put a Sliding Box in a Truck Bed?

Truck beds are great for hauling large items and equipment, but often times it is difficult to keep them organized and secure. A sliding box is an excellent way to keep the bed of your truck neat and organized, while also providing a secure place to store items like tools or other equipment.

The best way to install a sliding box in your truck bed is by using clamps and a drill.

To begin, you will need to measure the length and width of the box that you want to install. You will also need to measure the width of the truck bed so that you can make sure that the box will fit properly.

Next, you will need to find a drill bit that is large enough for the clamps that you have chosen. Make sure that it is long enough to reach through both sides of the clamp.

Once you have all of your supplies ready, you can begin installing the sliding box in your truck bed. Start by lining up the clamps with each side of the box.

Securely tighten them into place with a drill and make sure they are firmly attached. Once they are secured in place, add any additional hardware such as screws if needed.

Next, slide the box into its desired location on your truck bed. Make sure that it fits securely in place before tightening any additional hardware such as bolts or nuts. Once everything is secure, check all of your connections one last time before using your new sliding box.


Putting a sliding box in a truck bed can be an easy task with just a few tools and supplies. By measuring both sides of the box as well as the width of your truck bed, securing it with clamps and drilling them into place, and then adding any additional hardware if necessary, you can easily install a sliding box in your truck bed in no time!
