hmm. this probably belongs in newbie.

my recommendation is to buy a used box. I was looking at new ones for a while for my superdoodie and just said f' it because they were all $500+ for decent ones. My dad actually ended up talking to his neighbor one day who was getting rid of his superduty to replace it with an '07, and he was selling his box for $125. My dad snagged it and surprised me with it the next time i visited. It didn't fit my bed because it was a longbed box, and hit my wheel wells. I rolled to the welding shop in my hometown and had them notch the corners for $50. They said they do it all the time. The job they did was fantastic for 50 bones So I was out the $50, and pops threw in the rest. It's a really nice VERY heavy gauge chromed diamondplate built by a local guy in SC. Cam locking handles with a railing on the lid for tiedowns. I originally called up the builder to ask him about notching the corners, he said they sell the box for $700. I figure I did ok.

Moral of the story, buy used. check around on craigs list and classifieds.
