    Rear view camera wired to head unit ~$15
    X-BULL recovery tracks ~$80 (hasn't changed my world yet, but one day it will!)
    Buyer's Products Poly tool-box ~$140 (perfect dimensions for bed IMO, doesn't protrude above bed rails) https://www.amazon.com/Buyers-Produ...ywords=buyers+products+poly+all-purpose+chest (Same thing at Tractor Supply for $100, but they threw their badge on it. Can be removed)

    The bed stiffeners are for the bowing of the bedsides outwards with the weight of caps/rails/RTT's/etc

    Anyone here have the bed mat and try to load a hockey bag? Does it get stuck or can you slide it in? Also how about wood? Like a sheet of ply?

    Of course the Canadian asking about a hockey bag:rofl::rofl::canada: Let's go Bruins!! :censored: the Habs

    The mat that I have seems to be relatively easy to slide stuff in on; I loaded a wooden pallet this morning and it slide in without too much fuss.

    Have no experience with hockey bags, but lumber loads no problem. The OEM mat is a really ideal texture between sticky and smooth.

    I think it would slide “okay”. I mean, obviously fiction will increase as weight or surface area increases but I think the mat does a great job of keeping things from sliding around while not being too sticky. If I remember when I get home, I can check it out further

    Like @MDIT80 said it's a mix of being sticky and smooth. I've been driving around doing errands with the pallet in the bed and I haven't heard it bang against anything so it seems like it sticks fairly well. Getting it in wasn't hard, if you just left the full weight and tried to push it, it was a little slow but not impossible; I just lifted it slightly and it went right in.

    Yes it's the OEM mat

    Cooled seats = heaven. Amazing. Also, supercharged.
    My hockey bag slides with a little effort pushing it, then it stays put till I get to the rink. Mine’s old school basic with no wheels / frame so it bunches up a bit when I shove it in.
    Anyway, best of both worlds in my opinion.

    And plywood slides in just fine. Lots of Home Depot trips so far and I love it.

    I love my bed mat. However, it does not slide things easily, (nor should it)

    I load and haul a 30 x 30 x 40 cardboard shipping box a few times a year, weighs between 150 and 200#, depending on what it's packed with.

    That much surface and weight won't 'slide' at all. Two people might drag it. If I make the terms clear enough to distinguish.

    I simply remove the mat for that trip, especially if the bed need a good clean out anyway. Or I roll the mat up to the front of the bed and put the box in, mat flops back into place when the box is removed. Box slides great on the composite.

    The 'easy' way to haul ply, drywall, etc is to just put the 'bridge' across the bed and slide it on that, like in the pic below. Or lay a couple of 1x4's in the bed and slide the sheet goods on them.
