2001 truck box

4 posts in this topic

I live in the metro area and have a 2001 Chevy Pick up. Over the last few years it has been getting rust around the back fenders. Now firts of all I am not sure why a truck this new would have rust already because it is always parked in doors and i always try to keep it clean. Well any way i would like to get a new box if i could where would be a good place to start looking for one?????

Thanks

Look at some of the truck places that swap out boxes for service bodies, flatbeds, and van bodies. That would be a good place to look I don't know of them in the cities I know of a few where I am at. Chances are the color wouldn't be right and you would need to look at repainting and that is not cheap especially the whole box.

Also check your warranty ...most manufacturers have some coverage for rust-through depending on the cause.

If warranty does not cover it check repainting it first, new boxes prices are from $ 900 to $ 1600 and maybe up more

      FYI 2 of the 3 landings near us were starting to look a little beat up yesterday. With the temps & moisture today along with more of same forcasted for tomorrow, I have to believe that access to the area lakes will be getting tougher.

      Still about 14-15 inches of ice...plenty of slop and water today. Access was very beat up when I left.

      Anyone know what resorts are/aren't open to wheelhouse traffic this weekend? I see Hunters point and Agate bay are closed due to cracks by shore. I usually fish the east shore but might have to be open to something else.... Anyone know what resorts are/aren't open to wheelhouse traffic this weekend?

      I took a break from walleye fishing on Vermilion and decided to chase crappies for a few days to get away from the crowds. Fun and a good bite also! Cliff
