    My old dog box needs replaced, was thinking of buying an aluminum box for the truck. Anyone have any experience with these, pros and cons, brands, prefer to buy locally, live in eastern ky. Any info appreciated, thanks.

    I purchased a new 3 holes earlier this year to replace my old houndsman. Its a unique brand all aluminum with full top storage plus the doors have key locks I really like that for traveling and staying in motels. and its super light compared to the old houndsman. Buddy of mine is a dealer over in winchester. send me a pm if your intersted in talking to him.

    I bought a box from a guy in Grundy Va. a few years ago. I dont remember his name but he sets up at the Paintsville stock market. He keeps 2 sizes on hand but will build any size you want. Prices were $200 for small truck $250 for full size but that was about 5-6 years ago prices may have went up. PM me if you want and Ill try to get his name and number.

    I have a Unique box as well. I have had it for several years and believe it is one of the best on the market. I know of atleast 5 other people who have a Unique box.

    go the cheapo way like i did get one (or more if you need) of those plastic drums cut a square out in in the top and add a 2x4 with angles to secure the boards that will act as support... and put a mesh screening over the front and use a latch....total cost prolly about $10 if needed i can try and take a pic of mine long lasting and very durable

    unique boxes are top quality and very well priced i have a 3 door box and haul 6 dogs north in it every year for 10 days and they have plenty of room . there is a truck acessory place in grayson ky that sells scratch and dent unigue boxes he just never had a 3 door when i was there. I purchased mine directly from the owner of unique and got a great deal on it and had it built to my dimensions.
