  1. Here’s the real test for ‘stoutness’… Can you stack 3-4 fully loaded containers on top of each other? Can a 200lb man stand on it without it collapsing? Can it be used as ‘furniture’ (chair or table) when empty? Can it be left outside in the weather w/out leaking? If the answer is yes to ALL of these questions then you must be the owner of a Contico Truck Box. We had these in Afghanistan and they are excellent! They are strong, lockable w/ 2 locks or built-in key latch and made in USA.(around $65 each for the 2-lock model and available at most ‘Mart’ stores in both the auto section and/or luggage sections). P.S. to the author… ‘Quartz’ is a mineral, ‘Quarts’ is a capacity measurement. Jus’sayin….

    • Hi Roberto, Good to know about the Contico Truck box-they sound really sturdy. Oh, and the typo is getting fixed. Thanks for the comment!
