    Everything is soaking wet and we haven't had a chance to do much of anything. We are very behind on maintenance because of the weather so everyone will be mulching like crazy in the near future. I'm also being more selective about the design/build work. Not really taking on or going after it hard until I get a design/architect on staff to help because I simply don't have enough of "me" to go around to everybody.

    www.tarpstop.com has the boxes and fenders + chains etc. Make sure the order reads exactly what you want because they've messed up my orders in the past but they did correct them. My boxes are 2x2x6 on all 3 roll off trucks, including the Lo-pro International. I want to say aluminum with a polished stainless door was about $800 + brackets. Not cheap but they look good. Make sure you don't get polished aluminum, it's pointless and will not stay polished.

    New truck is here in 2 weeks or less :)

    Thanks. How are the protech boxes holding up? Do you have any recent pictures of them on your older trucks? I was actually looking at the Bawer all polished stainless seen here http://www.tarpstop.com/Bawer_Stainless_Steel_Underbody_Storage_Boxes.php

    The first ones are actually scratch built. The ProTech's on the Lo-pro are just over a year old but fine. If you can fit a 72" box, do it. I do the 24" square x 72" because it will hold a full size blower (STIHL BR600) and hand tools etc. We setup power tools in one box, hand tools in the other.

    I can only do 48" because mine are going on a F550. I had a set of diamond plate boxes on my other truck, but they look like crap now so I want to get a different kind for my new truck.

    Gotcha. I'd just call them and ask if they recommend one brand over the other, but just make certain you get polished stainless steel. I'm big on the image of the trucks and the cleaner they look the better. Diamond just looks bad after a while and even when you wash it, it still doesn't look clean but rather dull instead.

    I've had some crappy fenders in the past and I really like the ones I got from them for this new truck. I won't, but I bet that I could stand on them. Sturdy and heavy gauge too.

    They have them. Just call. And they can give you a diagram before shipping to make sure you're on the same page (we did that).
