Cambridge... shoe box lid, hanger tabs come standard, they use a heavier gauge aluminum that other boxes, beefy latches and handles and less expensive than most.

4CRS has the "standard" sizes but can order size you'd like.

I had my boxes made by AAA in Denver. Since I am in Utah, all measurements had to be done by me and sent to them. They did a good job on the boxes, but did mess up the measurements by 1/2 inch. Not cheap, but good boxes.

Partner Steel in Pocatello. They made two custom size boxes for me. Average price. Fast delivery. Well made. No problems.

I second AAA. I have three of there dyrboxes and a custom diamond plate frame. They don't always deliver on time but the craftmanship is A+

I don't know who has the best custom box, the only custom box I have had is from Dave Nissen, and he does excellent work and must be at or near the top of the "best" list.

Since your near I would go with AAA in Denver, fyi they use Cambridge for their custom orders. Cambridge are the best I have personally seen.

I love it... apparently everyone who makes custom boxes is the best.

Or more accurately, "whoever made my custom boxes is the best".
