They are compatible with most models of pickups, so if you’re looking for 2021 GMC Sierra Accessories or 2014 GMC Sierra Accessories, these systems got you covered. Let’s have a look at how these GMC Sierra accessories can optimize tool storage for your pickup.
Stack In The Back: The Milwaukee Packout System

Even if you’re looking for GMC Acadia accessories or GMC Yukon Accessories, don’t worry, this system can be transported in non-pickup models. The packout system uses a patented feature to allow you to interlock the different components into a tower. Each piece has cleats on the bottom surface that click into specially designed slots on the lids of other components. This innovation makes it possible to configure a tower of boxes, totes, and organizers that is suited to your exact needs. Just take the gear you need so the bed of your GMC can stay looking sharp without a pile of disorganized crates and bins.
Each piece is made from impact resistant polymers with metal reinforced corners. Heavy duty latches on the toolboxes and an IP65 rated seal under the lid keep your tools safe. Even on the harshest jobs and in the most brutal weather these tough boxes can take all comers.
By selecting one of several sturdy rolling toolboxes and using it as the foundation for your stack the modular system becomes mobile. With 9” all terrain wheels no site is a problem to traverse. Gravel, mud, and even stairs become manageable. The telescopic industrial grade extension handle with a wide grip allows you to navigate easily.
They are tough boxes, but they don’t sacrifice organization for durability. The Milwaukee organizers are made from the same impact resistant polymers, with the same IP65 rated seal, for equal resilience to their counterparts. Under the clear lid, each organizer has fully removable storage and mountable storage bins so you can customize all the small parts storage and keep it where you can find it. The no-travel bin seals mean things won’t move around inside when you’re moving around outside.
All these GMC parts and accessories are just what you need to keep your Sierra truck bed neat and clean so that your pickup looks as sexy as the day you bought it. The system comes in red and black color ways because, on the road, durability and organization are important, but so is looking good.
