How to Determine if Tool Box Will Fit with Ladder Rack on 2017 GMC Sierra 1500


I was wondering what the space is between the bottom brackets when installed on a GMC 2017 Sierra 1500. I was looking to get the Lund 70 inch side mount toolbox for ea. side. Lund 79772PB. Wil it fit in. Do you guys sell this box?

The great thing about the standard ladder racks like the Buyers Products # 3371501680 or Erickson # EM07705 is that they can be installed anywhere that you have room on the bed rails of your 2017 GMC Sierra 1500. The base does take up 12-5/8" on your bed rails and there are some limitations that you'll find when installing them on your truck (for example; one truck I installed this system on had a bed liner that took up some space under the rail so it limited where the clamps would fit).

We don't carry the Lund brand of toolboxes but we do sell some smaller options like the DeeZee Red Label Truck Bed Tool Box # DZ8748 which measures 48". You might be able to fit the ladder rack with your 70" tool box but you'll have to do some figuring on your end using the 12-5/8" measurement (keep in mind that there will be 2 of these per bed side).
