    I am about to be on the market for a new tool box. The one i have now does not fit properly and i just dont like how high it sits. I want something low profile, and polished(not black). Any suggestions on what kind to look for and where can i find the best deal??

    I bought mine (a small box with height below the top of the bed) from Tractor Supply - their house brand is quite reasonable. Not a super heavy duty box but very affordable. I noticed on their website they're in GA, so look 'em up.

    Go to Lowe's or Homie Dpot. They should have some low profile boxes specific for your truck on the cheap. If not you can always look up UWS, they make some badass tool boxes, check my pics, I have the low profile in black... Fits perfect and I always get compliments!

    That's funny, where's the pic... you were only asking for advice. Maybe a pic of you scratching your head? Just kidding, feeling fiesty today!

    That's quite a box there, seems like you found what you where looking for....

    I was asking for pics of Tacos with low profile boxes so you can choose from those alternatives.
