    Hello All, I am thinking of getting one of these types of cargo nets. I have not had one before and don't want to miss any of the obvious things lol. Are there good ones/bad ones ? Any recommendations ? Thank you for any Help/Comments.

    Yeah I kinda feel bad about that one; sorry OP. We live in a day and age where we over think just about everything and its hard for me to get use to that. I stand ready for the "OK Boomer" reply I deserve.

    Oh, buy the OEM net. It's fantastic! :)

    I have an OEM net and installed at the back about a foot in before the tailgate. This way it stops stuff from sliding to the front of the box.Works great

    I've thought about getting a cargo net or something similar to keep towards the tailgate of the truck for easy storage of things. The issue is that I'm usually also using that same area to haul other stuff too so would be constantly moving it out of the way.

    With something closer to the cab, like in your pic I usually have a tote and use a racheting cargo bar to keep it in place. Depending on what you want to store in there, having something that far back in the bed might be hard to reach if it's something you're regularly going to access.

    I don't know if you have the issue but my bed has leaks and it sounds like a common issue for second gen and third gen Tacomas:

    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/waterproofing-the-bed-checklist.719415/

    So I'm going to try to do a better effort in sealing my bed. I originally tried to spray any gaps I could find but still got a leak after a recent rain. So think I need to remove my tonneau cover and bed rail caps.

    But I normally get a big puddle over by the cab where the cargo net is in the pic. So don't know if that will be an issue for you or not if you have a similar leak.

    I have had the cargo divider gate on both my gen 2 and 3. I like the flexibility to move it forward and back, although it can be a PITA to adjust. Whether you decide to use the net or divider gate, get the bed mat to keep things from sliding.

    I had one of them divider gates and hated it. It worked great for it's purpose but a bitch to move back and forth as it would bind alot and you had to go from one side to the other till you got it in place. The net works better for me.

    Y'all are all crazy.

    I don't buy any net unless it's made of milspec surplus nylon that's been lovingly rubbed with gun oil and calibrated dirt by a retired Pfc. You assume that the Pfc is cagey as hell because he's seen some shit during service, but really he's just full of regret for never seeing any action outside of Fort Hood's cafeteria. But still, my 185 dollar tactical net beats the hell out of your 9 dollar net. If it's good enough to air drop a Bradley, it's good enough for my groceries. And my purchase gives me the extra privilege to make you feel bad about yours.

    Yeah I thought that the divider thing was a great idea and was the first thing I ordered after I got my Tacoma. Well I think ordered the tonneau pretty soon too.

    What I didn't realize was that the tonneau cover brackets installed in the rails. meaning I couldn't slide the gate the full length of the bed and couldn't have it position towards the cab of the bed due to the bracket being there. Also I think the knobs had to be installed upside down to fit under the cover and made it a pain to remove (in particular in the dark) when I needed to. I ended up just removing it because it usually just got in the way.

    Forgot to mention this gate was on my 2008 Taco and did not interfere with my tonneau cover but not sure how they would work on the 3 rd Generation.

    The following cargo net is for heavy duty cargo. I bought one back in 2018 and I have used it a lot more than I expected. When you throw this over a load and strap if down, it’s worry free. Highly recommended.

    I’m sure there are others at a lower cost.

    Figured I would add the reference to this thread though it’s overkill for groceries.

    Any net that fits a midsize pickup will work, but the OEM net from Toyota works great and just attaches to the cleats, no need to buy any extra mounting solution for the rails (even though they sell one).

    I have the OEM one from Toyota, it was a bit more cost but better made material.
    You unscrew the tie downs and place the loops of the net on the tie downs and screw them back in (torx bit) just like your picture shows.
    Someone wants to steal it its either a torx bit or ruin it with a knife.

    Holds up well and keeps even light things like towels and plastic bags secure as the net has bungee top straps.
    If there is nothing in the net to weight it down, it will float in the air turbulence in the bed when you hit 80-85 mph.
    I like it. have not lost anything yet and it does come in handy.

    Plus is if you put cans and trash in the truck because you do not want to litter, they will not fly out going down the road either.
