I bought some metal yesterday to make a cargo box for the jimmy, cut the metal at my shop today. I bought a 4ftx 12ft sheet of 1/8th inch steel diamond plate for about $200. I tacked it together today. My rods that came with my welder when I bought it are really old I think and I'm going to buy some new rods this weekend and weld it up good. I've got a few gaps (my sidewalk is uneven). I was going to make some strips to patch it with. I just tacked it for now. It measures 48inx 24inx 21 in. and I will make the lid once the bottom is welded. What do y'all think so far? I'm still really new to welding and this is my first official truck welding project. I also just felt like throwing a pic of my dog in too.
