I cant seem to find a good toolbox thats not too expensive..but also anybody got a picture of a black tacoma with a tool box? Chrome or black tool box is fine..I cant get a feel on which would look better on a black 05 tacoma...

Before you get flammed, I would make sure you post in the correct section. As for the toolbox, I would just spend the money and get a nice one to begin with. You will like it more down the road. Here is a picture of a nice box that works well for me. I paid 275 for it new. Not a black truck, but you can get the idea. Not sure of the width of the new taco body style, but I am sure UWS does/will have one if its different.

It is a valid question though - the new body style does not allow for just any truck box I believe. I have not searched but from what I recall the Toyota issue box runs on the bed rails.

FWIW, as far as size.
I have my weather-gaurd tool box on mine from my 04 tacoma (less width) and it fits my 06, just barely. It has about a 1 inch overlap on the bed rails, not a ton of support, but its suffficiant for my use.

We have got a pretty good search function here, sometimes just have to do a little digging:

If I did not have a canopy on my truck I would probably go this route:

If you have got a SB DC, it would not take up the entire bed...

This is also a good option:

This is '05 Picture thread, yes, it is a long thread and it might take some time: but I am sure you will find a picture of a Black truck with a Toolbox:

measurements: 57" between the bed rails (measure to cargo rail)
43" between the wheel wells
17" from top of bedrail to bottom of bed.
if you need more measurements, a tape measure is cool... :D
hope this helps...
