    I've been eyeing this system for a while. Turns out they are fairly cheap and locally made (Corona, CA). But I'm not sure about installing them in the composite bed. Has anyone been using these in a 2nd Gen? Any experience to share?

    Those look like the ones that came in my friend's Nissan Frontier. Those seem like they would stick up high so you cant slide things in so easy.

    I was looking at a display model today. They are not that tall. Probably would stick up a bit. More concerned about whether the bed would hold up.

    Check TTORA. I think a bunch of threads are over there on them. Let me know how it works out!

    Just put backing plates on the bottom of the bed where the bolts go and you will have no problem. I would make them 4"x4"x1/8" so there would be no question of that they are strong enough.

    The backing plates are a good idea. I was wondering if large washers might be enough to distribute the load.
