Alright guys, all concerns have been passed along to the squadbox owner. He is a really good dude and genuinely open to improving what seems to be an already awesome product. We are kicking around the idea of adding removable shocks to my install to allow the top to be propped open. Will let yall know how it goes and what feedback I get.

First of all: Thanks for keeping us updated!

Did Tyler mention by when he will put the new install video online?

No problem. He did not, but I imagine editing will take some time. He wanted to break the video up in to user selectable sections so more handy installers could jump around to appropriate sections. I will ask.

Hi @Taanto, any news from Tyler? And how is your install/mod going? You said that you were going to try and include some sort of hinge for the top lid?

These latches clickety-clack, if you don't have the front or top covers installed:

It doesn't bother me, but my fair lady in the front right seat asks, "What's that click-clack noise? Did you break something?" So, to silence the clacking (and her), I put these polyethylene foam cozies around the latches:

I have the TRMS rails in the floor, so I just park the cozies in the rail when I have the covers on.

Hi @Taanto, as some weeks have passed by: Are there still no news from Tyler? The video still hasn’t been uploaded yet (at least not where I could find it…). It be very much appreciated, if you could please bring us up to speed concerning your install and the issues that have been raised.

Thanks a lot and best regards!

Yeah sorry guys, life caught up with me. I raised all of the concerns with Squadbox and he said they would all be addressed. He did say that they added counter-sinking in a couple areas to remedy some boltface fitment issues.

I am happy with mine. The material used is thick and heavy. I would have total confidence jumping on top of the box without it breaking. I did have to make some adjustments on mine, nothing too major. It started to rattle about a month after the install and I noticed that the latches for the rear face were not properly spaced to provide a strong hold, they were just barely applying pressure. I moved them back about 1/5th of an inch and were good now. I also put 90 degree brackets on the rear section of my one touch to allow the lid to clip up and stay open. It works well. I lost my keys to the locking storage day 1, so Ill have to figure that out.

If I could go back in time I would buy this box again. Definitely recommend it.
