    Bilstein 5100s front and rear, front set to .85 with ome 885 coil springs, 1.5" aal, nitto trail grapplers 285/75/16, level 8 guardian wheels, delta toolbox painted black, tinted tail lights, black headlights with 6k HIDs, smoked fog lights with 6k HIDs, weathertechs, usa spec pa15 ipod adapter, single in dual out flowmaster 10 series with 3.5" tips and secondary cats removed, 20% tint, coverking neosupreme seat covers, color matched grill.
    Anybody on here paint there toolbox black or have it done by someone? Wondering which would be easier. Truck is black sand pearl but I don't know if flat black or gloss would look better. Anyone have pics of theirs and what products did you use?

    x2 on the semi-gloss. I painted mine black and it seems to be holding up pretty well. I roughed it up and cleaned it off with steel wool (and degreaser?) primed and painted.

    I originally coated mine with hurculiner but that started to flake and peel so I wire wheeled it off, sanded it down, and hit it with rustoleum spray bedliner. Couple coats and it's been holding up for a year plus. My truck is always in the sun as well. :cool:
