I bought two battery boxes and tool boxes from Farm Country in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Heavy gauge metal looks like original. Light bracket and hardware included. Very pleased with the quality of their products. Nice folks! Lawrence Ginnow. Shop (920) 231-6623 Cell (920) 420-0255 FARMCOUNTRY@SBCGLOBAL.NET Good luck. Frank

Mine is coming from OEM - It was more about budget. 14 gauge unpainted is 0.0747 thick. When I get the box - I'll throw the mic on it to see how it measures up. Found this chart - wanted to share - you might it useful. http://www.unc.edu/~rowlett/units/scales/sheetmetal.html
