did my first mods

well not really mods, just additions.

that wasnt the one i ment to pick up, i had 2 different ones in my hand and i put the wrong one back. o well that one is fancier than the one i was gonna get. and the blue matches.

and this was the "big one" got it from a friend for $75, pretty much brand new.

already got some stuff in there.

Very nice. Anything you add that wasn't there to begin with is a "mod", lol.

I ended up getting a metal box because the Delta plastic box I had needed support to keep from sagging. However, that particular box you have is I think a better design with a different plastic and I don't know as I've seen one of those sag.

Of course, I had a hi-lift jack and about 80 pounds of tools in mine, lol. No wonder it sagged...

looking good! keep it up!

WARNIGN! modding a ranger is a very addictive and probably can be deadly if the better half finds out how much you are spending!

yea, i found a metal box on ebay for $50 but i would have had to spent like $15 in gas to go pick it up, and then to refinish it (it was white and i would have just taken the paint off and then bedlined it) so i wouldnt have saved much money over all. i still want a black metal one, but this was cheaper and i knew the people selling it. as of right now all i have in there are the tie downs, my ball hitch, a can of fix-a-flat, and a small tool kit.

thanks for the props, and i know modding is addictive, i have modded every car i have ever had on the road. but i dont have the money for much right now.

i also got a bell bike rack (wifey picked it up at a yardsale for $10) and i figured out i could mount it on the tail gate for when we go camping and the bed is full of camping gear.

is it possable to mount a nother set of tiedowns in front of the box? kinda like where the little indent is on the pass side in the 1st pic of the tool box. or maybe to the box it self. i was thinking that i just covered my 2 rear ones for the most part, and that i dont know how well they would work now that the box is on there.

what you could do for tie downs is either drill 2 new holes and put in eye bolts, or use your front 2 bed bolts, and replace them with eye bolts.........

Wow I get red x's until I get home.
All I have done is merely fix the burnt out Airbag light on the switch (Passenger on/off switch.)

Yes, I did it to my tool box. Here's the best pic. of mine I could find. I just drilled a hole for each hook and in they went.

hey scott where is the pics of your truck man?

if you are talking to me about the led door locks, i am no scared of the complex mods. they are usually cost prohibitive though.

mike that is the kind of tool box i wanted, but with the black metal, but this came up and was worth it for now.

Thanks! I had my truck detailed the day before that picture, it was for the S. FL Meet, then my truck got all dirty and stuck.
