    I have a 2017 Limited Tacoma with OEM Tonneau cover.

    I'd like to be able to secure loose groceries in the rear bed somehow so they don't slide towards the cab. Will an OEM Cargo Net work even though I have a Tonneau cover?

    Do you like your OEM Cargo net and find it useful?

    Thanks!

    My cargo net is actually from my old SUV that Ive since rigged up on my truck. I added carabiners with hooks on each side, for the net to latch onto, to my rear end bed cleats & the bottom of the net just clipped in to the d rings already installed. It’s great to keep groceries & smaller items from moving around back there. It only cost me 2 carabiners @ Walmart but is one of the easiest/best mods I’ve done yet. I use it all the time & if you’re loading up your bed you can easily remove it:

    Bed mat is one of the best purchases I’ve made so far. Things stick like glue to it.

    Edit: If your intention is just for groceries I would say bed mat plus a tote from HD. Cargo net might not be what you’re looking for.

    Bed extender. I use mine more in the closed position for small shit than I do in the open position for large crap.

    I've always used a $20 tailgate net and they've always worked perfectly. And on the
    3rg gen you can use the screws on the sides where the side storage boxes are to
    secure it. If you use those side screws that I use it leaves you about 2ft to the tailgate....perfect.

    Almost exactly what I have done. I got my net on Amazon for around $12. I had some small D-rings that fit on the screws like they were made for it. I have an undercover flex so I drilled holes in the mounting rail (lines up in the utility rail) for a 3rd (top) D-ring on each side.

    Works great. :thumbsup:

    Now with an added bed mat, boxes of soda and such do not slide back and fourth crushing my eggs, chips, or other groceries. :cheers:

    Just let them slide everywhere. Works fine for everything except beer, which goes in the child safety seat anyway.

    While things won't slide on the bedmat too badly, they will fall over.

    Gladiator Cargo Net is a pretty sweet set up. It's pricey, but, it holds your gear, and never tangles up.
