I just had some gas springs that will assist in lifting and lowering my engine hatch. To springs were cheep about $150, but I have to do the install. I will check and see if I can get a set designed for you that will work for your needs.

I assume the box is hinged. if not you need to hinge it. Then get a scale & pull up on it and see how many #'s of lift you need. Go to www.mcmaster.com They have all kinds of gas springs & mounting brackets. Email me if you need help. If you make me a sketch i'll do a CAD drawing for you.
