    okay everyone, contrary to prior belief plasti dip is not good for everything :eek: i had to take a bunch of stuff to storage for my friend today and just about anything will start peeling that plasti dip off of the the tool box. it looks bad enough after one day of actually using the bed of my truck to peel it all off and use actual spray paint.

    i think im gonna try and find a spray on bed liner to put on it instead. any good suggestions?

    pics of carnage tomorrow

    I recommend herculiner, its what i put on my front bumper and its holding up strong... not really spray on, but it is a little messy. I used linex for my rear bumper and its chipping in a couple places.

    Why don't you want to remove it, did you epoxy it in the bed or something? I could take my old toolbox out in under a minute.

    Glad to see the box is treating you so well. If you need any help with that stuff just give me a call, I get bored on the weekends now.

    It's a good thing you get an alignment at every oil change...
