Alternative to Aluminess Deluxe Box

Ive been shopping around for a box similar to the deluxe box made by Aluminess for my rear swing arm bumper(Aluminess) and Im curious to see if anyone has found a good alternative to the Aluminess box. Similar size (30Tx16Dx24W) that I could buy instead. 2 reasons: 1) they are about 2+ months out for delivery and 2) they are pretty pricey!
Ive come across a couple of options but they are not exactly the dimensions Im looking for (close though).
Most of the boxes that seem to work are underbed mounted toolboxes like JOBOX or Buyers Products, etc...and they are 30-60% cheaper.
Any thoughts on other options any of you have found to work well from a fit perspective? Weather proof perspective? Security perspective?(looking for something with a good locking mechanism).
Thanks

My aluminum box was custom made by Wicked Mike in Los Angeles. PM me if you need more info. He can customize anything you desire. He's a one man operation and reasonable pricing too.

Several have used large Pelican cases, they seem to work well.

audisnapr's thread on the one he did is here:

If you are looking for an Aluminess style box, Wicked Mikey has a brand new one he is selling (just spoke to him this morning). He fabs lots of stuff and boxes are just one example of what he does.

This box is 32 x 26 x 14, will be all powder coated black, same locking latch, it is ready to go to powder coat, so delivery in about a week. It comes with one shelf already installed. His fabrication is super high quality, definitely no disappointments. It is currently without a top rail, but that can be added if desired. This also allows door orientation to be selected before railings are added and powder coat is applied. This is slightly taller and wider than the Aluminess Deluxe Box but not quite as deep. The price he is asking is a bit less than a Deluxe with rails and shelf. Pick up is North Hollywood CA. PM me if you have interest.

Here is a picture of a finished box he made.
