    I want one that can be mounted under a box trailer. I’m thinking that a big truck stop like the Petro in Joplin, MO, or the TA in Walcott, IA may carry some. Are there any other good locations?

    Tractor supply sells them so does just about any trailer shop. But you can find them online probably cheaper!

    The only problem I see buying them online is the shipping fees because of its size. Buying online is usually cheaper for small products.

    Don't go cheap! I bought an underbody box from Tractor Supply and the hinges rusted out in less than a year and I'm in the South! I'd buy one specifically made for heavy trucks, stainless or aluminum.

    Flatbed trailer dealers carry tool boxes.
    They have the brackets and the experience to install.
