Tonneau or toolbox?

I have been bouncing around the idea of getting rid of my tonneau in favor of a toolbox. I do like the tonneau, but I have always liked the look of toolboxes and like the idea of my bed being open so I dont need to take the tonneau off every time I want to haul something taller than the bed. What do you guys think?

Heres a pic of the tonneau just for giggles.

Keep some sort of tonneau... you'll thank yourself in the winter because your box won't be full of snow

Neither. Get a canopy, it's the most useful IMHO

Yea I have kinda been bouncing around the idea of a soft tonneau. Do they sell tonneaus that are compatible with a toolbox?

I think Extang makes a cover you can use with a toolbox. Personally I like the Extang Trifecta tri-fold cover and my power tailgate lock!
