i was thinking about getting a back rack for it and painting the box black, also i want to paint the rims black for the winter until i can buy some nice rims and bigger tires for it. i also want to paint the rear bumper black and put some black sport fender flares on it. what are you guys thoughts what else should i do or do differently?

Great looking truck dude! As far as painting the bed/box black, I suggest a roll on bedliner. I did a herculiner in the bed of my truck and it only cost me 60.00 bought off ebay. my truck is older so I had alot of prep work but you dont have to worry about that with yours. Painting the wheels and back rack is a good idea though!

i actaully ment painting the tool box black. i am also planning on doing a herculiner bedliner tho. I also thought about just painting the tool box with the herculiner idk how that would look tho

Oh ok, Yeah black tool box would look sweet. I would stick to a krylon paint or VHT paint for that

You would probably need an extra quart of it for the tool box which will be more expensive than painting it

well i am planning on herculiner the inside of it because its starting to rust a little and i want it to be durable in there cuz i will be putting tools, chains and such in there
