I’ll be the first to admit that a nice chrome plate tool box is a hand and not unattractive addition to any truck. If you have tools and you have a truck, one of those is almost a mandatory addition to your truck’s features.
But for pure unadulterated, good looking finishing touches on your ride, it is hard to beat a black roll up truck bed cover. Of course a case could be made for one of those hard fiberglass jobbies, but they really don’t look much better, they don’t work as well for most things, and they are even more expensive than the toll up or tri fold options. And those are expensive enough.
But whoever said that good looks come cheap. Just ask your girlfriend what she spends on makeup or that “simple” black dress that you think she looks so good in.
The roll up cover has the advantage of being all around useful. It keeps your truck bed covered so things are out of the weather. It keeps your truck looking clean, since all of the things that a guy would tend to have cluttering up the box of his truck are hidden out of the way. And it rolls up to allow full access to the bed for when you need to haul stuff that won’t fit below the truck sides, which is a lot of stuff if you are busy actually doing things on a regular basis.
Anyway, that’s just one person’s opinion. And opinions are like… well, you know. But it is the opinion of a worldly and particularly discerning truck owner. So take it under advisement.
