reminds me of my truck (single cab, long bed) except mine is an 06' chevy with the 5.3. I put the toolbox on after i got it. I had to get a toolbox without any other cab space. I love my truck compared to my old bonneville though (plus i can smoke that old car ). I just wish i had a Z71

yeah, the standard cab is pretty low on storage space... i like to keep a 4-way, jump box, and extra washer fluid with me. and in the winter like this i usually have a blanket and my car heart coveralls too. deffinetly need that box.
