Secure Vehicle Storage By Billy Boxes

    Until we were sent the press release for Billy Boxes, I was only familiar with Tuffy Security Products for secure vehicle storage.  I’ve always been nervous about an external box as I think it screams “Hey, I’ve got stuff in me, please check”.  I suppose if it is anchored well enough it is just as secure as a trunk, and something inside the cabin of the vehicle would generally result in a busted window.

    we’ve reimagined the truck bed toolbox with a host of thoughtfully designed features including LED lighting, audio, adjustable organization, firearm storage and more. Every box is made-to-order in one of 25 colors and handcrafted in Austin, Texas.


    They are a bit pricey, starting at $2100, and there are a few configuration options (adding in things audio and D-Rings).

    What do you readers think?  How do you secure valuables in your vehicle?  Does anyone have a Billy Box that would be willing to give as a heads up?

Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he teaches wilderness medicine and writes for a number of publications, including The Prepared, a site devoted to self-preparedness. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.
