Truck looks real good and clean! How do you like those tires? Is it just me or do your tips stick out past your bumper?

That does seem pretty expensive. I got mine for $100 used off craigslist and in excellent condition.

Does look good. Nice and shinny.

Well i think it has to do with the price of metal these days. I paid $125 for just the diamond plate for the skid. That was two pieces of 2'x2'x.125". Some of the Delta's i was lookin at were like $280, but then they had to shipped freight which was like $80.

It is a United Welding Services(UWS) box.

Hmmm never heard of them before.


$350 isnt to bad depending on the quality of the box. Have seen way to many of the Kobalt boxes bowinging down in the middle. The box I'm running is a lil over $500 I managed to get a deal on it though.

a UWS tool box is a very well built box. My dad had one on his f-150 from when he bought it in 1993 until he took it off to put on his tonneau a few months ago. the only problem he had was that over the years the lid warped a little bit but not enough to hurt anything

Plus UWS are some of the best tool boxes imo.
