PRESS RELEASE: New MidBox Adds Storage Capacity & Versatility to the Ford F-150



Owners of Ford F-150 pickups work as hard as their trucks do. That's why SVE Commercial Products is introducing the MidBox Professional Mobile Storage System for F-150 Regular and Supercab models. The new MidBox is Ford Motor Company's approved option for flexible, secure storage that maintains factory styling while adding 26.3 cubic feet of storage space.

Inconspicuously located behind the cab and to the front of the pickup bed, MidBox is accessible from both sides of the vehicle. For added convenience, the same key that operates the driver's door is also used to lock and unlock MidBox, so no additional keys are needed. With maximum security in mind, the MidBox was designed with latches featuring double-bitted keys and lock tumblers that provide exceptional safekeeping of equipment and supplies. For a seamless appearance, MidBox makes use of original equipment (OE) Ford door handles and factory Ford F-Series production colors.

Configured with one of the largest payload and secured storage solutions in the industry, the MidBox Professional Mobile Storage System is as tough as the Ford F-150 pickup with a number of unique features, including:

  • Rugged Construction -- Double-paneled doors and factory hardware provide strength and security. Dent resistant exterior door panels not only
    match the vehicle's body panels, but resist scratches and dents.
  • Heavy-Duty Door Seals -- Commercial-grade weatherstripping makes the interior compartment weather- and dust-resistant.
  • Durable Performance -- Commercial-grade door hinges and hardware, OE factory door handles and rotary latches keyed to the vehicle ignition provide years of trouble-free service.
  • Powder Coated Steel Construction -- 10-gauge and 16-gauge steel panels with a powder-coated surface provides a tough, durable, corrosion- resistant finish.
  • Sturdy Installation -- Maintains the structural integrity of the vehicle by using only existing mounting holes and support points during installation.

The MidBox Professional Mobile Storage System can be ordered by requesting that trucks be built with the RPO Code 55M -- MidBox Prep Package. The MidBox Chassis is sent to SVE Commercial Products where the MidBox is installed, along with other selected options. It is then re-entered into Ford's transportation system and shipped directly to the dealership using the Ship- Thru code 31A/D9K.

They just need to get rid of that door handle on the bed, it should look something like the rear door handle on the Dbl cab Tundra, but I guess this option is going to be basically for worktrucks where functionality is way more important. Other than that though, its a great idea and looks useful. I wonder if they will make this feature an option on the Super Duty.

We just had the roll out on the 150 and were told to look for the 250 in the 09 version with the redesign. Needed to move the gas tank to make it fit.

I disagree with the door handle, for the work industry the OEM avaliability is a plus.

Hi all! New here.

I actually spotted this truck and got some photos to Priddy on this just before they released it. Pretty cool.

It's kind of funny to me to hear people complain about a locking door handle on a door. Let's see, it is allready on the other doors and the tailgate, but suddenly one more is not attractive to some - on a work truck of all things. So Ford should engineer (3) types then, one for all the doors and tailgates, and one for this midbox access? Is that right? That's the dummest thing I ever heard. If you don't like the stark contrast of black on white, you have a choice. So what's next, more attractive mirrors that compromise functionality?
