I did a brief search and couldn't find a tread like this one. Just wanted you guys to post some pics of your boxes to see what everyone is using. My new one is the 53" Kobalt pioneer box. I'm using it as a work replacement of a snap on classic 78. Im still using a minibox as a roll cart for shop covers,chargers and such. Here are a few of mine.

The fridge comes in the box. You can get it at Lowe's.

Mine is pretty boring, but it served it's purpose.  I wanted a box that would hold all my hand tools and fit in to any garage I ever owned once I quit installing.  Because of this I went with a narrow tall box.  It can be a bit annoying at times having a box taller then me, but I keep a 5 gallon bucket handy to access the top two drawers and the top.  It turned out to be a really good idea, because my current garage is really small, but has 11' cielings!

Lowes website dosent list it, its the Kobalt 53" box, a little bit on google will get you on your way, or check out a store. Everything from the radio,ipod cable,speakers, and fridge came out the box $1,700 worth. Its not a snap on box, but way too sweet to pass up

I'd much rather worrk out a big box at a custom shop again. It's just the big box pays more by hr and with the red box I get overtime and bonus instead of commission.

That tank is sick, how tall is it? Looks like you need a bucket to get to the top too. I bet every bit of 6.7' high. I used a small 6 drawer box for about 4 years for the same reason,saving space, but I had too much crap.Now I work in a hugh 3 bay shop. So to eliminate having 2 smaller boxes and a few totes, drill boxes, etc I financed a big box.
I got a snap on classic 78 for sale too that I need to put on the bst forums.

My rear floorboards are my tool box... -can't have something move around in the trunk and puncturing my sub! That and my junk room.

I did see that box at my local Lowes. I got a trip out of it.

It's an 80 gallon tank I believe.  It's entirely too big for a home garage, I do know that.  I don't use it very often and it takes about 45 mintues to fill up.  So, if I need to inflate some tires I have to plan ahead with it because it's so big.  I have been using it to finish my basement (I have a dedicated air line that runs to my basement) so it has been nice from that perspective.

That's the reason I don't leave it filled all the time.  After the first time it woke my wife and I (and possibly the neighbors) up at 3AM because it kicked on I decided that I would manually control when it comes on.

It's really not possible to be in the garage without hearing protection when it is compressing.
