I like the square hitch better, and for the toolbox tractor supply has really good one, Like a black low profile one would look badass on that yellow truck!

I think the tube hitch looks better but I feel the square one is stronger.

thanks guys I think I will go with the square for the strength,I checked out tractor supply web site only showed full size, but I did find a delta box that will fit it is 48" wide so should fit with a bed liner. but they want an arm and 3 legs $399.00 and it is white not diamond tread or gold plated lol
and has less metal than a full size

I don't need it that bad

rather invest in a roll bar

yeah. your toolbox will be atleast 450, maybe even 500 bucks. for some reason, the smaller they are, the more expensive they are. the one i had in my stepside, i got from TSC. It was DeeZee and they had to special order it. It won't be cheap that's for sure. Stepsides aren't like a full size truck, where you can find one on craigslist in 5 minutes for 50 bucks.. So my advice to you is just watch craigslist, and i'd even put out a want add on craigslist. Because that's actually how i sold mine. I saw one on there and called the guy and he came and got it. i sold it for 175. so even on craigslist you're still gonna pay some cash. more than likely.

and i got the square hitch. i just think they look nicer. i don't know if they're stronger or not. but i prefer them. looks more boxier and like it belongs..

My toolbox came from TSC.
I've had it a few years now & it's not as bright as the day I bought it, but I haven't had time to polish it either.
Seems like it was only about $225 back then.
I had to make them order me one, they kept telling me "they're on order, we just sold the last one yesterday". After a month of trips to TSC I told 'em "just order one for ME".
When I finally got it, I don't know how I lived without it.
