+1, plus you can get the UWS in all black (like mine) and that would look much better than a black box with silver top

I bought my UWS for around $350.

It's probably the best box you can buy.

No.

On a quick side note:

does the black paint stay on pretty well on the UWS boxes? this was the only thing holding me back from getting one. That and the fact that i cant decide between a box and a shell.

Box is cool, but I'd rock a shell

If you really like the look of the Toyota box, you could see how much shipping would be for this one (not mine). http://asheville.craigslist.org/pts/1001994613.html

yo good looking out on that cl ad! that is a great deal!! not too far either.

The think I really like about the OEM box is that it mounts on the rails, The UWS is nice, but will have to get sketchy with the mounting method.. Also I am worried about weight, want to keep it as lightweight as possible

The toyota one just seems so perfect..

but 575 is a freaking lot

I think I am going to check with CBI

I went and looked at one today and I really like that it is made out of the same lightweight material as the bed.
