    Ah hell that rust aint bad, it just looks like any other old truck around here. When you look at the fender and see out the other side of the bed, then it's time to worry :D

    the latchs on my tool box are like ive never seen before. they are a self adjusting latch, never had them pop open before like ive seen with other boxes.

    the only thing bad with the entire box is the driver side, its not too bad. but yes at certain points, i can look through the driverside and see the pass side. :pimp: i think some call them speed holes.

    It looks like a TSC box? I bought a pos Delta and didn't see the TSC box until it was too late. The latches are what I really liked about the TSC box because as you mentioned they are continously automatically adjustable, and heavy duty too.

    Sadly, the "Off-road" site in those pictures is the best wheeling I've done in months. Oh yeah, and it's TJ's driveway. :grin:
