can u build a box and put it in a blowthrough and not use a bed cover?? like use resin and then coat the whole bed in bed liner as if sealing it to the bed?? somone at a shop said water would eventually get through the bed liner and kill the box..anyone have any experience or advice??

Are you talking about not using a tonneau or just not using a bedliner?

I think he's saying no cover and put box down on bare bed then put liner over bed and box.

At least get a vinyl tonneau cover. I got one for $180 + shipping and it's hinged and lifts up and everything...check out ebay. I don't have anything on the floor of the bed at the moment. You can just cover your box in resin and bolt it right to the floor. But please get a tonneau.

I guess it could work but everyone will see a huge box in your bed and eventually catch on to what it is. Greater risk of theft.

well i dont live in a big city or anything. the thing i wanna figure out is that will the box get wet with resin and then sprayed wit bedliner like the above picture.

I get what you're saying. I know from experiance the rhino-liner bed liner stuff or any liner for that matter is only water resistant not water proof. A box I did with it over time absorbed the moisture and got into the MDF and next thing it was saw-dust. Figure this;

Fiberglass resin is used for boats and bed liner is used on trucks.

I would resin the entire box and at the least look into a vinyl top tonneau cover. Its better than nothing. I had a vinyl top for 2 years with no problems.

Doesn't matter if you live in a big city or not. I live in a town of about 1500 rednecks and I still got my **** broke into.

Its not as difficult as you're thinking. Just resin the box and throw a vinyl tonneau on and you're good to go.

use a **** load of caulking and marine grade plywood and cover it with 5 layers of resin and then line it it will never leak.

Sounds very permanent.. I personally wouldn't do it, but then again I change plans like I change underwear..

I've heard of people bolting the box down to the bed, then covering it in resin, and then putting bedliner over it. Seems like a great idea to me.

i've seen many pictures of ppl doin it. the only problem i guess would be if u changed box design...which i'm not into any competitions so i wouldnt really care...i just want it loud :)

I got mine for 550 shipped to my work. Took maybe an hour or so to put on.

I would still resin your box. The covers aren't exactly water tight. No sense in being cheap. To resin your entire box should only be like 20 bucks.

They also build to order, so they will have you take measurements of the insides of your bed so you get a snug fit.
