    Look at the Knapheide latches before you buy another brand. They are much nicer.
    Was that installed and mounted on your truck for $7k? What did you do with your old bed?

    Also, how much does a Knapheide KUV body add to the price of a van?

    It was about 7k installed. I sold my old body on craigslist for $500.
    Great investment, should have done it sooner.

    I dont do as much install work as my crews do so this is perfect for minor service and very basic installs.










    I see that you got your trick or treat bucket ready to go there on picture#5.

    That thing has been in my service truck for 7 or 8 years. I keep misc screws and nails in it. My helpers know exactly what to get when I tell then to "go get my pumpkin please"!

    I have boxes the same style as Garnerac's only they are made by OMAHA.

    Same slider on the rear that you can paddlelock all boxes at once , plus each box has a separate lock also ...... if you want to be double safe.

    Next set I would get the low cover for the box. Its just nice being able to lock everything up in the box and to keep it out of the snow when its not parked in the shop.

    Vasoline my paddle locks every winter to keep from being frozen out.
