97 Dodge Ram 1500 (cap or no cap)?

I have a really nice 97 Dodge Ram 1500 V8 that i use for my lawn care business. I was wondering if anybody in the lawn care industry has caps on their trucks? I took it off because i recently got body work done (truck is rust free now). I was thinking about getting a truck tool box instead of putting the cap back on. I don't have trimmer racks on my trailers i usually just threw them in the truck so i was kinda concerned about throwing them in the truck without the cap. Let me know what you guys think.

The cap would provide security and weather protection if you keep equipment in the bed, plus I think it looks good.
