Pack It In, Lock It Up: New Dee Zee Tool Box Delivers

If you’re weighing tool box options for your pickup, Dee Zee has a feature-packed proposition you won’t be able to pass up.

Well known for manufacturing a wide variety of truck accessories, including bed rails, running boards, bed mats, grille guards, mud flaps, and more, Dee Zee also produces a lineup of tough, good-looking tool boxes. With its new Padlock Tool Box, Dee Zee is offering a veritable fortress for your truck bed.

Made from a single sheet of aluminum with full seam welds, the Padlock Tool Box features 20% thicker aluminum—you’ll see and feel the difference immediately.

Inside, a patented security mechanism nests a padlock into the side of the box, making it impossible to reach the shackle with bolt cutters. You can choose your own 1” shackle lock or even use your own truck key with a BOLT Padlock. This sophisticated mechanism learns the pattern of your truck’s ignition key—which now opens your tool box! (Padlocks sold separately.)

How does this make this box more secure? By requiring 2.5 times more pry force to open the lid compared to standard tool box latches. The patented slide surrounds heavy-duty striker bolts to keep the lid closed with a single moving part. The lid strikers are integrated into the lid to avoid weakened weld points. No more parts wearing out—and most importantly, no more intruders into your tool box, including rain.

 

Other Features

  • Internal bends add superior body strength.
  • Automotive-grade rubber bulb seal resists the elements.
  • Dampened gas shocks hold the lid open 90 degrees.
  • Full-length hidden hinge.
  • Double V-pan lid stiffener creates strength and rigidity.
  • Customizable metal tool tray keeps smaller items organized.
  • Available in Deep and Wide models for extra storage space.
  • Made in the USA.
  • Backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

K&N Corvette C7 Cold Air

K&N Gives Corvette C7 a Blast of Fresh, Cold Air

The 2014-2015 Chevy Corvette is a pretty remarkable machine fresh out of the factory: a 460-horsepower engine, capable of getting you up to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds, still manages to get you a respectable-for-the-pop 29 highway miles per gallon. Despite those impressive specs, K&N has managed to help you get even more out of it.

K&N Air Filter
K&N Air Filter

With its cold air intake for the new 6.2L Corvette, K&N guarantees more horsepower and torque by replacing the restrictive factory air filter box and accordion hose with a free-flowing, high-density polyethylene air intake tube that minimizes restriction and increases airflow to the engine.

Dyno tests showed 12.51 more horses on average at 4,998 RPM and an extra 16.63 lb-ft of torque at 4,004 RPM. Merge it, pass it, punch it: you’ll enjoy a boost across your Vette’s entire RPM range.

The 63-3081 is married to one of K&N’s high-flow carbon-fiber air filters, which is washable and reusable and capable of going as far as 100K miles between cleanings (depending on driving conditions).

Also Features:

  • Quick installation time of 90 minutes or less with standard hand tools
  • Maintains all factory connections and does not require additional modifications
  • K&N’s Million Mile Limited Warranty

Stop into your local Performance Corner retailer to pick up K&N’s new cold air intake for the Corvette C7 yourself, or find a local affiliated store using our dealer locator.
