No, it's just some simple hinges and thumb screws to hold the lids down.

Here's a couple of weight boxes I built for some local 2.6 trucks. Both have fuel, ice/water, steering power unit, batteries, and a compartment for added ballast.

Still looking for hard rubber coated rollers for the bottom of weightbox, got to be something out there reasonable.
Rubber coated press rollers, foot long or so .

I made my box out of 2x8 by 1/4 rectangular and skinned it with 3/16 plate. Has forklift pockets in the front to remove it and went ahead and powder coated it. Contains my batteries and 1200 lbs of suitcase weights. Box weighs about 800. Hang my fuel and oil on the back of it so I can pull my entire front clip with 2 pins. Built some bolt on rollers but haven't got them installed yet.

I found these taken off a conveyor system at a gypsum quarry.

Most of these are for the front of the truck and look great! Being a 2wd most of my weight has to be on back over the rear axle. Has anyone thought that a fuel cell that you could fill with water mounted in the back of the bed, then that way you could adjust your weight for each pull? also would be removable afterwards? From my little experience the scales can very from track to track. Just my .02

My current weight bracket. Simple receiver type in place of the tow hooks. Slide out brush guard and slide in weight box or bracket.
