Alright…so i am trying to figure what i want to do with my work truck as far as hauling tools (every day) and hauling material (from time to time). I am a drywall taper, and our child will also be coming into the world very soon. My wife and i also moved to a larger center recently too.
So far, i have been hauling my tools in my cab behind the drivers/passengers seat, but its a pain because it completely eliminates the back seat, meaning i can only take one other person with me at a time, and even getting groceries is irritating because the stuff that cant go in the box has to go on the passenger seat.
With our child coming too, i want to have the option to take him in my truck, and in general too i want the cab cleaner because you can probably imagine how dirty a drywallers truck would be with hauling tools in the cab.
So i am down to two options here…either a locking tool crate, weather i built it or bought it, and bigger obviously than a standard truck tool box. Or, a truck topper. They both have benefits, but the crate has a potential to be much cheaper…and an issue with the canopy is that i would also need to track down a locking tail gate.
So again, please give me your opinions or even pros/cons. Thanks
