Good looking truck. For the Tool Box, Aluminum (Silver/Chrome) Diamond Plate will look the best.

If you want a really nice box, get a jobox. My dad got an all diamond plated one. The thing is sweet. The truck looks great by the way. Is it a sprayed in bed liner?

Don't get a Weather Guard.........YES they are nice and YES they are over priced.........keep shopping and save your $.

Get the chrome / silver box!

It makes a BIG difference in the summer, when the sun beats down on it, temps build up inside the box... And if you're anything like me, you always got a can or two of some compressed stuff (fix-a-flat, wd-40, whatever) that ain't supposed to be exposed to severe heat (Ka-BANG hehehe).

Even a completely white box gets to be 120+'ish degrees inside around July-August.
I don't even want to think what a black box would be like.

On another note, for $200 or so you can get a decent (used) truck cap.
Seeing how you have space for either, I might opt for the cap itself (all your equipment locked / out of sight / out of mind AND out of the weather).
