I am going to order a set of these. The price is the same from the vendors I have seen. So asking for a recommendation for where the best place is to buy them.

I do have an Amazon prime account, so from there shipping is included, probably my best bet.

I buy from AutoAnything most of the time, they'll beat anyone's price and usually have free shipping. They also provide a military discount if you qualify for that sort of thing.

CALL RealTruck and ask for applicable discounts.

I saved about 10% and no sales tax, free shipping.

No issues with hearing the box rattling or the contents rattling? I think I read somewhere that was an issue before, but possibly on a previous version.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I checked autoanything.com and they only had one side. So I went ahead and ordered the complete set from Amazon. Should be in hand somewhere around the 25th depending on where it is shipping from and when it ships.

I noticed one comment in the YT video that I linked to that stated you can still use the box link. Not seeing how that is possible. Anyone still using the box link with the swing case hardware in place?

I think if you take the box out - then you can still put a box link widget in that slot.

if you needed too. I don't know I don't have one yet but it's going on order today.

I was able to keep the box link hardware in place when I installed my passenger side swingcase. I did have to shave a bit of plastic off of the boxlink handle, for it to fit in the swingcase bracket.

Yes. I still use my Box link cleat. I will take a picture tonight if someone does not beat me to it. When my latch came undone(showed fix earlier in thread) I budgeed the undercase to the Box link cleat. The box link cleat is either just above or even to the top of the undercase, if my memory serves me correct.

So you can use the box link cleat. But other accesories like the ramps probably can not use the box link after installing these boxes. The tie down cleat is the only box link accesory that I have.

but the cases are really easily removed and installed once bracket is installed. So maybe even the ramps can be used if you remove the undercase (but leave the bracket.)

I had the Ford branded ones installed at the dealership. I didn't have my cleats in when they did the installation so now if I want to put my cleats in I'm going to have to remove one of the brackets, put the cleat in and then reinstall the bracket.
