If you aren’t a handyman or a repair worker for your day job, then chances are you don’t see the point of carrying a toolbox in your truck all day. But truck toolboxes are often good pieces of gear for anyone, and whether they are a special type or compact truck tool box or a simple metal box with nothing else inside, they are still useful to have.
Truck tool boxes can often be refitted to carry tools needed on the road, such as a wrench, jack, and small box to hold all those errant lug nuts while you attempt to change a tire. They can also carry supplies for common engine problems, allowing you to keep your truck going. The box can sit in the backseat when not needed but will always be there to save the day when it is.
If the toolbox is an empty metal box that only looks like a toolbox, then it can be used for various other storage items. It can be used to store any knickknacks or other items that won’t fit in your glovebox or even store things that will be needed for your actual day job. it also makes a pretty awesome lunch pail if you are eating outside or around any construction.
Even if you aren’t a handyman, always having a set of tools on hand is important for anyone in a truck. You never know what kind of roadside emergencies or problems at your destination will arise, and having the tools and training to lend a helping hand when its needed may lead to some unexpected benefits.
So look into purchasing either a specialized toolbox with sockets for everything, or a empty metal box and then start specializing it to fit the back of your truck.
