Idea's for a truck bed toolbox?

I have been looking around for a bed toolbox at my local auto shops and all i find are universial fittings that say they are for small compact trucks and also i have looked online and can not seem to find any that will fit my bed. I have a 2011 GMC canyon crew cab with the short and the wheel wells are right up against the cab. Does anyone have this same type of bed and if so what kind of box are you using and doesnt require drilling into the rails?

Re: Idea's for a truck bed toolbox?
