What kind of toolbox do you have and other "mod" questions...

These aren't the "fun" mods, but rather just general truck stuff...

What kind of boxes do some of you have? The Husky boxes at Home Depot seem reasonably priced and I like the black diamond plate models. The Kobalt boxes from Lowes seem nice too and they have a greater selection as far as configuration and size but they are a little pricier. I have a regular cab so I need a place to put fishing poles, tools, guns, tow straps, tackleboxes, etc...

I was also thinking about getting Rhino lining. What is a good price to do an F-350 short bed over the rail and how thick should I get it? To me 1/4" is overkill, but I want to hear what you guys have to say. I have black nerf bars/steps that are a little rusty so I was thinking of taking them off and having them done with black Rhino lining too.

Ideas?

I have a used U.W.S. aluminum box that I found at a swap meet for $100. I believe they retail for around 250. Great box for the money.

I had a diamond plate aluminum box made by Adrian Steel out of Adrian Mi. It was a good box besides I had so much wieght in it from chains the floor fell out. Plus it was great price, free. Kinda nice to have a buddy working at the factory. Also the 99-present PSD trucks have a wider bed then normal so if you can get the box that fits to the edge of the bedside so it is flush with the outside of the bedside. Just a little FYI

as far as toolboxes go i agree with DJ weather gaurd is the way to go if you have the money but on the spray in liner i have had both line x and rhino lining the rhino is in my f350 but thats because i bought it with it if it wasnt for that i would go with line x it seems better quality to me and the cost for a shortbox is about 425

tell ya one thing, do not get the black plastic ones, if you put any kind of weight in em and come summer time if you are where it gets fairly warm, they start sagging.
also check your local pawnshops, thats where i got my last one, just threw couple of hd lock hasps and master locks on her and it was great, cowboy brand out of ft worth.

Weatherguard boxes are expensive, but I have one on my 00 f-350, and they're all we use at work. If you're going to use it day in and day out, weatherguard is worth the extra cabbage. I think t.s.c. carries them now, there used to be only a few places around to get them. As far as the liner goes, I have line-x and I'm real happy with it. I think it was about 370$, but thats been about five years ago, probly more nowadays.
