I want to see some pictures before i go through with it.

I did it with my current truck...not hard to do really. I don't have any pics though. :(

The only problem I'm having now is that my current setup is literlly breaking the weld seams from when the hole in the bed was reattached.

so you've been there and back again? I'm guessing this because having that reattached would make it hard for a blow through lol.

what was the cost to have it cut? then you just kept the metal and welded it back on?

I don't remember how much it cost, but yes, I kept the metal and just had them reattach it when I was ready to go a different direction.

that answers a lot of questions, but he did it wrong i think. I want to have the box coming into the cabin about an inch so i KNOW there will be no moisture getting to my subs lol

I agree, I would have a tonneau cover on the bed first, and also not just put bed liner on the box. It would have to be sealed better than that.

But i figured it would give you a general idea of some aspects of it.

all he did was put bedliner on the box?:confused::confused::confused:

i'm gonna make it impossible for anyone to steal. I think i'm going to put the sheet metal around it so it would take some serious drilling to get anywhere
