    I like my undercover swingcase. You can double them up if you have a lot of gear (obviously not nearly as big as a true over rail traditional box) - I’ve used in multiple trucks but in order to have them really secured i swap some of the self tapping screws and/or the locking washers ones for some stainless bolts w/ washers/nuts secured on the inside of the bed going up through fender or through tail light. They won’t go anywhere mounted like that & can hold more weight than intended.

    It’s nice that they’re fully removable

    Any worries about those metal parts rusting?

    I tried calling Smittybuilt and they never pick up the phone. I would guess it is made of material that resist corrosion but would like to confirm it with them first.
