    After only about 4 weeks I finally got my toolbox back from having it sprayed. Got it installed yesterday. A few before and after pictures. What you think?

    Thanks! Keeping it low profile was my goal in this project and I'm stoked as to how it turned out.

    I would prefer to not have one but I need it to carry plumbing tools since I do side work often. Also works out great during hunting season!

    I got two 1.5" pieces of squared aluminum cut at 19.5" long and bolted them to the wheel wells. I used the 1.5" pieces to raise the box slightly. Then placed the toolbox on them and ran 4 screws thru the box into the 1.5" aluminum. It's a Better Built box that was made for the Ford Ranger Splash. I picked up the box off craigslist for $80 and had it sprayed before I installed it. Got it sprayed for $60. Beats buying a new one. I have about $180 in it total.

    Yeah God forbid you would have to use your truck as intended. It's a shame when a truck is used for working and not as a fashion accessory...... /sarcasm. Have you ever worked a day in your life?


    I like it op I have been wondering what boxes would fit our trucks, thanks.

    Sounds great bud! We'll have to get the local TW members together for a mini mod day when you get settled in. Doesn't seem to be many around here though.

    I think it looks good, I wouldn't mind having one but at the same time it's nice to have full access to the length of the bed

    Thanks! I like having the full bed also but loading and unloading tools gets old fast....so I have learned to except the slight inconvenience for functionality.
