    What do you have for bed storage solutions? Looking for ways to store recovery gear and other things without them sliding around. Not interested in spending the $ for the Decked solution

    One ammo box up front, attached on the rails. Holds all my recovery gear, blends in well, stays out of the way, cost me $20.

    Currently I'm using screw down eyelet tie downs. On previous trucks I've drilled into the bed. Through-the bed-bolts would probably be more secure but I like the tie downs because they make the box easily removable. I move it to the side when i camp in back to give myself more headroom.

    ...edit...turnbuckle tie downs....now i remember that that's what these are called. :D

    Any kind of storage box and ratchet straps. Not the most practical but dirt cheap and it works.

    Seeing how long I can keep stock(ish)
    I have the @KB Voodoo bed box.
    Cover is typically rolled. But, I stand on it all the time, it van forward and back in rails. No weather issues.
    Found some extra bins yesterday that can fit underneath
    Very happy with it.
    My frontier had the floor rails, and I used a heavy plastic tote mounted to those.
    Tons of flexibility witg any of these trucks.
    You imagination, and/or your budget are the limits.

    Undercover Swing Cases FTW! You can pick up some used ones on CL or FBMP for about $150-$175 for a set.

    Picked up a couple of these Plano cases at Academy for $20 for camping gear.

    I use a foot locker and a bed drawer. Holds pretty much everything I need.
