Overview: Toolbox Tonneau Covers

Toolbox Tonneau Covers aren't for everyone, but if you need one, there are usually few other options. In this blog, I will walk through a few of our best selling toolbox tonneau covers, as well as discussing some of their benefits.


American Work Cover

This workhorse is one of our newest additions, and it breaks all the rules. All toolbox tonneau covers are designed to work with tonneau covers, but they don't generally come with one. The obvious benefit to this cover is the full sized toolbox, which is built directly into the canister that stores the retractable tonneau cover. This toolbox has two powder coated trays that store your tools and gear above the rolled up cover. The cover and toolbox come with matching, OE style handles and locks to keep your gear secure. If you're looking to outfit a work truck, this cover is the way to go. An added benefit is that it's compatible with all other Truck Covers USA Accessories, meaning your truck could be the sharpest looking, most well outfitted work truck on site.


Access Roll-Up Toolbox Tonneau Cover

Most toolbox tonneau covers, however, don't come with the box. They are instead designed to be installed on vehicles that already have a toolbox on them. The Access Roll-Up Tonneau Cover is one of these. Like most toolbox tonneaus, it is designed to work seamlessly with a 19 - 20 inch toolbox. Just like the Access Original, the cover rolls up into a compact bundle, and it's very easy to use.

We carry a range of tonneau cover styles. This allows you to chose the style you like, whether it's retractable, roll-up, or tri-fold so you aren't stuck with a tonneau that doesn't operate the way you'd like. If you are looking for a Tri-Fold style toolbox tonneau, consider the Extang Solid Fold

Why a Toolbox Tonneau Cover

So, what are the benefits of a Toolbox Tonneau Cover? Well, the obvious one of course is access to your toolbox. If your truck is a working vehicle, or you need to transport tools and other small items regularly, the best way is usually a toolbox. But you're still going to want to keep your truck bed secure. They can often be locked up to add extra security and weather protection.

There are few options available for those looking to have both a toolbox and tonneau cover, and we have collected the best ones on Tonno Cover Depot to help you get what you need quickly. If you have any questions, or you would like to order yours, get in touch, or come visit us!

How To: Measuring Your Truck Bed for a Tonneau Cover

Before purchasing a tonneau cover or other truck bed accessories, it's extremely important to know the size of your truck bed. It's not as straight forward as checking the advertised length, though. The process of finding the actual bed size of your truck is a commonly asked question, so today I will be giving you the information necessary to get the right number.
When measuring your truck bed, you must measure from the bulkhead to the inside of the tailgate. Measure flush against the inside walls of your truck bed straight across from the bulkhead to the tailgate. Note that it is from inside to inside. *See image for example.

Note: Keep in mind that the advertised truck bed length is rounded from the actual measurement and may be off slightly. This example table shows the actual size in inches compared to the advertised length in feet/inches.
