Yes, it is narrower at the bottom. About 35" from one side to the wheels on the other side. About 34" not counting the wheels.
It is perfectly sized to fit in back of a Samurai with the seat folded forward.
The pictures above are from one of our camping trips and the box is sitting level.
You could easily drill the bottom for bolts. I thought about that, and decided I'd just use cable locks, but I don't leave it out if it is going to be out of my sight for more than a few minutes.
I too am on a budget, which is why I went with the Stanley box, and it has worked out well. At some point, I intend to get a receiver hitch bumper so I can put a rear tray on for carrying it outside and still be able to have people in the rear or be able to carry more. As you can see from the above pics, It is tight for us to go camping in and the seat is out for those trips.
