The flush skirt line adds 4-in. additional compartment height in the rear vertical compartment.

Underbed Boxes

Jobox white steel underbed boxes provide superior weather resistance, strength, and dependability. A wide rain gutter surrounds the entire door opening to channel water away from the interior providing superior weather resistance. Long-life automotive-style bulb, EPDM Neoprene weather stripping surrounds the door opening to seal out moisture, dirt, and dust. Available in several sizes and lengths, the steel black underbed boxes have high-strength reinforced, 12-gauge cold-rolled steel doors and 14-gauge bodies for durability. A stainless steel rotating T-handle locks the door at the top and on both sides for greater resistance against forced entry. Direct Info Number 216
