Tires, Toolbox and Shine w/ Pics (Maybe 56k Ok)

Well i finally had time today to upload some new pics of my truck. These first ones on of the toolbox i got from a friend at work. I payed $50 for it and it looks almost brand new.







Now i got board last Sunday before football came one so i went and got some Mothers Chrome Pollish and i gotta say that stuff is great.

After:


Side By Side Comparson:



And then finally, i got new tires for the truck. They are 31x10.50 Dunlop Mud Rovers. I got these for $432 for all 4 mounted and balanced. Its good to know people who work at a tire shop. I love these tires so far, a friend with a S-10 had these on there so i know the work well in the mtns. And i am just glad to get rid of the city tires.

how is that box attached to the bed? it looks like its resting on the bed rails, and with nothing between the bed and the box, looks to me like that could be a huge rust issue in a year or two. maybe a strip of rubber or something so it doesnt rub. but, id definitely pay 50 bucks for that box thats pretty spiffy =)

1) I need to adjust my front bumper to make it sit level, i just slapped it on there one day and havent had time to get back under there and fix it

2) I got the polish from Advance, its just the Mothers Chrome Polish and i couldnt find the powerball so that is all done by hand

3) Can I just sand and paint the box black? I thought that i might need some special paint.

4) I ran 4 bolts through the box and bed to keep it in place never thought about putting some rubber inbetween the box and bed. Looks like i know what i will be doing next time i have some free time
