tool box help

I have a 2011 KR white/beige CC SB, and I'm looking into purchasing a toolbox in the near future. First off, what color? Chrome(stainless) or black? Second, which brand...I'm leaning towards UWS. Thanks.

Is the truck lifted? Do you have black wheels/steps? If I were you, I'd do stainless in-bed but if you do cross-box I'd go white. Hope this helps

As of right now, the truck sits at stock height w/ KR 20''s. Also, if I do cross-box what width do I need? I like the idea of a low profile cross box because because I might be able to put an extra tank under the tool box. Keep the suggestions coming!

The dimensions are all up to you man. You just have to find one you like and there's usually options as far as width(from cab back) and the depth. Also, there's usually lid options as far as gull wing style or one piece. You can do whatever ya want. Good luck

Ten 4. Well speaking from experience those gull wing boxes suck cause ya really can't see in the box from the side anyway. Don't forget to really consider what you're gonna put in there cause it won't always fit. OK I'll leave ya alone. lol

I like the king ranches when the accessories are painted the same as the beige that come on the bottom of the KR. I went with the weathergaurd tool box. They seem better built. I put the low profile weathergaurd on my KR and had that and the nfab steps painted. The paint code on the 2011 is LQ if u go that route.

Edit. Your bumpers are already painted so I think the box should be painted to match

Why not just get a toolbox/fuel tank combo from the get-go then? I want to do the same thing. Keep some DEF, fuel filters, basic tools, etc... Plus be able to keep some extra fuel on hand.

^ That's my number one choice, but I don't know the best tank/tool box combo...they're expensive, so I want to get opinions and feedback first before pulling the trigger.
