    My wife is getting me either a tool box or light bar with lights for Christmas and I can't decide which to get. What do you guys think? It would be a black low profile box or the NFAB light bar and not too expensive lights. Check my pics for how my truck looks now. I would love to have some fog lights/driving lights but the extra storage would be great too!?!

    I vote light bar...but it all depends on how much you need the tool box. Being a single cab I'm sure the extra space would be nice!

    well..Id get the toolbox. since you have a reg cab. you will get extra space thats very helpful. then put some cash aside each month and in a few months get the light bar.

    I think the black toolbox would look good on your truck. And it never hurts to have more space to put stuff.

    I love my tool box! I would rather have good storage area for recovery gear and tools instead of lighting... But thats just me. :)

    I'd say get the toolbox first. Regular cabs need the storage space. The headlights on these trucks really are not bad at all. I've had auxillary lights on all my previous trucks, haven't gotten around to it yet on this one. Not really a huge problem.
