Depends on what you are using the truck for at camp. If it's going to be what you sleep in, I would get a topper. If you are going to have a lot of larger crap in the bed that won't fit in a tool box, but won't stick up, cover. If you are just going to have all your tools and straps taking up a little bit, tool box.

Exactly. If you need the whole bed secured but never carry large items go with the topper. If you want just the bed secured but want to be able to fit large things to go with a soft tonneau. And if you only want a little bit go with the toolbox.

well i know eventually i'll be carrying axles and tires. and i like the clean look of the tonneau.

the problem with a cap is everyone can see in. and i would like to keep my straps, jumper cables, blanket and other misc crap where it'll stay put.. and locked up. Maybe a top with a between the rails box. idk, i need money ha

Matt, if it were me, I'd pass on the tonneau, and either get the lo-pro, or a camper.

I like the A.R.E. Z series tops...

You could get some of those wheel well boxes. Don't take up a lot of room but still keep stuff secure and dry. Cabela's makes one you can use as a cooler too haha

say no more

I just sold my boss my old red matco box, now he's wanting to sell me a truck tool box haha.. Its a massive one though. after having one in the ranger that went probably 4-6" above the bed rails i never want one that tall again, it kills your vision.

It's called window tint, duh!

You can stand next to mine outside with your hands blocking the light, and still not see in it. Picked it up used for $650 or so.

I use to have a bakflip HD cover, which is secure because it only opens from the inside (tailgate must open first) and my tailgate locks. Picked it up used for $250. I mean you could pry it open with a crow bar if you really tried, but you could get into anything if you want.

like i said, if i wasnt spending $400 a month on tool payments i would have got a diesel. but i just cant afford any more right now. its always sooooo easy for someone to sit behind a computer and say "you shoulda got this, or that" but at the end of the day your still driving a ranger and for that im sorry
Sounds like you shouldnt have bought tools that were so phucking expensive that you are paying $400 a month for them...

As the truck sits its ugly. Lifted even a little bit would be different. Do something to it so it looks better and is different then a work truck which is what it looks like.

The new chevys are great looking trucks...

meh, i consider work trucks to have vinyl seats, manual locks/windows, painted white and beat to ****..

tires sky rocket in price when you go bigger, so thats not happening. And its cause im dug in with 2 tool guys.. if i could pay one off it would only be $200 a month. I just got a snap-on box so i'm gonna be paying on that one for a while.

Ever priced snap-on stuff? haha

there really is a difference and I will buy them for that reason, they're sockets and wrenches will take off bolts/nuts that Craftsman tools will round off, trust me I've seen it.

so be it if they break, they grab the bolts better and won't round them off as easily.
