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

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
