After owning a flatbed truck, I will never go back to a normal pickup bed.
Montezuma toolbox, fuel transfer tank, and an old metal milk crate for small items. I really wish I could hang an underbed box off the side of the frame rail but my truck doesn't have enough space. Behind the seat is valuable storage room for that reason.
I just bought the 9" extension box to put under my existing box. It hasn't came in yet. I also have to underbody boxes. You can pack a lot of stuff in there.

Abomb - 5/20/2017 15:53 I forgot about those style tool boxes! How much do they run in price?
Want to say ours was in the $400 range 8 years ago which I guess doesn't help much for now except it won't be cheaper than that now. Ours is just the single one at the top with the fire ext. in the end.
I much prefer a flatbed to a regular bed. My main work truck is a 2001 Ram 3500 (dually). It was originally an 8' bed. Now has a Pronghorn SKX skirted flatbed. SKX has 4 underbody boxes and a tail toolbox tucked under the deck in the rear. On the left front top of the flatbed I have a medium sized Montezuma. Behind it I have a 5' long "bed rail" tool box. Have run this setup for 5-6 years.
Front left underbody holds a portable toolbox with odds and ends small tools.
Right front underbody holds a gas can and some oil jugs.
Left rear underbody holds ratchet straps and has a magnetic paper towel roll holder!
Right rear underbody holds hitch receivers/pins/balls/etc.
The tail toolbox holds a spade, a large prybar/scraper, and a dull rusty machete (that has come in handy many times)
Montezuma holds a full set of SAE wrenches and sockets, hammers, prybars, etc.
I mounted socket holders in the bedrail box for a set of metric sockets. Also holds metric wrenches in tool rolls, a few air tools, power tools, and odds and ends.
I opted for this set up and really like it because it is almost like a service body on the left, but the right side is completely open to access with a forklift or sideload an ATV.
In the front I made a skid with a air compressor and hose reel. It bolts down with 3 bolts and can be forklifted off.
I originally had an unskirted flatbed without underbody boxes. I would never want to go back to less storage. The only thing I would change would be to add a power inverter somewhere. But I haven't figured out just how to run the cables yet.

Under the bed, I cheaped out and bought boxes from TSC, but the paint doesn't last as long. The rawsons look new after 5 years, but the TSC ones needed galvanizing and paint last winter.
Have pickup bed, topper pickup, pickup with carpenter side boxes, flatbeds with underbody boxes w or w/o top side boxes on the farm. And use a regular single wheel service truck dramatically more than any of the above. Just bought another one. No experience with the deeper boxes on a dually service body.
If you need a cheap work truck, used service trucks are inexpensive and extremely useful. But not if you need a flatbed for various reasons.

No, it's not built in, I bolted it down on the top along the drivers side. The bed I have only came with built-in underbody boxes. I added everything on top. I'll try to get a pic of my setup on Monday and will add it to this post.

Best Truck Toolboxes For 2021
Securing tools is a top priority among those who use their trucks to make a living. As more buyers turn to trucks as daily family haulers, storage capacity and even style matter nearly as much as the security of a truck bed toolbox. Thanks to pickups’ booming popularity, toolbox manufacturers now provide a wide range of solutions to fit every storage need and bed size. One new style maximizes the unused space between the tailgate and the rear wheel wells, for instance; another trending design fits slim and deep just behind the cab to preserve space in shorter beds. The classic 71-inch cross-bed toolbox remains the top seller among full-size pickup owners because it fits and looks just right.
Five toolboxes stand out for their innovative features. We surveyed real-world reviews and owner experiences to discover which truck toolboxes impressed buyers with ease of installation, build quality, sturdy security and clever storage solutions. Each is available in a custom width to accommodate various truck bed sizes, but we have linked to the most popular 71-inch models for convenience.Read Less
