Keep in mind, the bed is black because of the spray in bed liner.

also when you do get a toolbox, you will need to put something better under the toolbox on the rails other than the padding that came with the toolbox. Ask me why.....well that padding is not enough and eventually the diamondplate wears though it and starts rubbing on the bed rails. I now have a nice diamond plate pattern in my over the rail bedliner lol

I have decided to go with a black chest in the bed. The main reason being I don't want anything over the rails. No matter what you put under it, it will still leave marks from the padding or the tool box. The chest will match the sprayed in bed liner and not be as noticeable. Also, the chest is only $219.00 and a low profile black box is like $350.00!

Black diamond plate will look good with the white paint with any color wheels and pick up the black in the bumpers and if there a back rack in the future what color.

Aluminum colored diamond plate will look good with the wheels too.

Box-in-the -bed is nice but it does create the problem of drilling through the bed floor to mount it and a back rack interferes with the cover unless you allow space and cleaning around it is a PITA...

If you plan a back rack what color will it be ?

The Bed Rail Mount has a different look but most people use them and I think the cover is a little different allowing for a back rack in the future, easier mounting, no holes in the floor and easier cleaning under it.

I am using the box-in-the-bed type, I like it below the edge of the bed and in the future may use some sort of cover so it fits my purpose. I used the black to match all of the trim except the wheels that I want to stand out.

luck on the choice.
