ok i have my old tool box from my old 96 Ranger that got totaled and i was thinking about puting it on my 99. if i do put it on i will be puting diamond plate on the sides and i already have it on the tailgate. i wana know if u guys think it will look good with it on or to keep the cover on it. i can make up my mind and i dont wana rewen the look. i alos have dual whips 4' to put on the sides of the tool box. here is the pic of the box on my 96

i vote no. i think those tool boxes look way too big for the ranger. i mean it fills up almost half the rear glass.

if you want a tool box what about something like this? and put it under the tonneau

i was thinking of that but its such a pain in the arss to take the cover off i wish i could. and i dont know how i would keep it locked in so someone dosent slide it out. i am starting to just like the diamond plate and keep the cover better. i still wana make my truck look nice to and not rewen the affect.

thanx

Nick
