The Stowe 2-in-1 system was designed to meet the real-world needs of pickup truck owners who are looking for more than just a lid for their truck box. We listened closely to the comments and concerns of experienced tonneau cover owners, then reinvented what a state-of-the-art tonneau cover system could be.
The result is a breakthrough combination of better organization, easier access, stronger protection from the environment and theft, and a premium appearance that’s actually worthy of your truck.
Realizing that there’s a big difference between general cargo that can be stored in the open box area and gear that needs to be protected and handled more carefully, Stowe added a built-in multifunction toolbox. This versatile compartment allows you to separate and secure your more sensitive gear, and better organize your truck bed.
Even though most tonneau covers say they’re resistant to water and other elements, our research found that the air under tonneau covers is generally filled with moisture, road salt, and dust. These contaminants can soil and even corrode whatever you’re carrying. With the Stowe 2-in-1 system, you have not only a nearly indestructible tonneau cover, but also a genuinely weathertight toolbox—a clean space for your most important gear.
To support your lifestyle wherever it takes you, Stowe’s toolbox compartment needed to be more spacious than a typical toolbox. It is tall enough to stand up a 5 gallon pail and long enough to carry a set of golf clubs.
The toolbox sits approximately five inches off the truck box floor and inside the wheelhouse profile, which allows you to use the full length and width of the truck box to haul longer and wider items.
This durable toolbox has been designed to carry 400 lb. of gear. Its composite construction, combined with jackscrew support feet, work together to ensure its capacity. It’s so tough, it can handle a run-in with a commercial fork lift.
Water, dust, and road salt just won’t get in—period. The toolbox is a sealed and secure storage environment. Its top cover is equipped with a custom double-bulb perimeter seal that provides extraordinary protection. The double-bulb seal is a two-stage design where a secondary seal backs up the primary stage. And that’s not all. On a cool evening after a hot, humid day, your typical aluminum toolbox will suffer from interior wall condensation as the hot air cools. With Stowe’s composite construction, this just doesn’t happen.
Our toolbox is designed to sit flush with the top of the truck’s bed rails. This gives it a significantly lower side liftover height, minimizing the reach needed to move your gear vs. a typical aluminum box. Available dividers help you further organize the interior space and improve accessibility.
Thanks to its low profile design, our toolbox won’t obstruct your rearview mirror or rear window.
With its insulating composite wall construction and included drain holes, this toolbox has been a big hit at a lot of tailgate parties!
You can keep the toolbox comfortably in place while towing with most fifth-wheel trailer systems.
High-tech composites supported by extruded aluminum frames provide a strong and secure platform for the front and rear covers. The upper surfaces of the panels are coated with durable, truck-tough polyurea, then treated with an anti-fade compound to maintain their like-new appearance throughout the years.
The push-button locks are protected from snow and ice intrusion, and provide quick and easy access to your stowed gear. With a simple button-push, the tonneau cover will pop open and rise into the full open position. Just grab your gear and move on with your day. No flipping, folding, or rolling! These locks are connected to automotive-grade rotary latches, which provide added strength and security to the lock system. No pull rods or plastic components.
All of the hardware in both the toolbox and the tonneau cover is coated with premium-grade coatings to maintain its integrity and appearance.
An extra-wide cover opening angle without any hinge or strut obstructions allows complete access from all three sides of the truck box. An innovative, industry-leading, six-bar hinge and integral gas strut assembly makes this possible.
The tonneau cover is equipped with the same perimeter seal design as the toolbox cover, providing a true weathertight seal around the rear truck box area.
Our tonneau cover was designed with removability in mind. Where many mounting systems incorporate less robust components, our factory-grade attachment design provides a higher level of security and performance. Yet it is still easily removable within 15 minutes.
The styling of the Stowe system works with the contours of your truck’s sheet metal, and the textured powdercoat finish on the rails matches the box top covers, forming a package that looks like part of the vehicle. A custom-grained polyurea panel topcoat completes this premium package.
Get all the benefits of better organization—without the issues of having to fit your truck bed cover to a separate toolbox. Gone are the connecting rails, nuts and bolts, foam strips, leaks, rattles, dirt, and frustrating customer service calls. Instead, you get a built-in toolbox/cargo compartment with 400-lb-capacity that stays dry, is tall enough to stand five-gallon pails and long enough for a set of golf clubs. (Plus, with its drain holes and insulation, it makes a great tailgate cooler!)
