    Does this system have access to the void left between the wheel well and the back of the cab on both sides? Specifically referring to the model for a 2018 DCLB Tacoma

    Not on our mid sized system. On the full size, there is enough space behind the wheel wells, but on the mid size, we elongated the ammo can in front of the wheel wells to make up for the loss of space. Unfortunately the space is so small behind the wheels, that we just didn't have the ability to make an ammo can that fit.

    Is there a way to make the ammo cans lockable?

    Unfortunately we don't have a way of locking the ammo cans just yet. By nature they are meant to make use of that extra space behind the wheel well, add structural support, and provide a place to secure the system to the bed.

    If you are drilling into the system itself that would void our warranty but you could get creative on adding lockable latches to make it harder to open up.

    What are you looking to secure in there?

    Anyone else have a creative way of securing the ammo cans yet?

    I’m trying to deny access to the bolts under those covers.

    When installing the Decked system, is there any way that it still allows any access to the driver side storage cubby? I know the Decked system comes with a crap load of storage itself but i have my Expedition essentials storage mount and ARB compressor installed in that cubby. I really love having it there and would prefer not to relocate it

    You will have very limited access to that side cubby and likely wouldn't be able to access anything bulky that fits in there. If you were adding tie-downs or something that would fit through a smaller sized opening then maybe but it will be mostly covered by our system.

    How is your ride quality after installing the decked system? I too have a camper shell and I’m wondering if it’s going to be absolutely necessary to beef up the suspension and leaf springs. I have a DCSB by the way. Soon I’ll have the camper shell, decked, and roughly 100-350 lbs of extra gear and supplies depending on the situation.

    Going to need to change springs, add helper springs like the hellwigs, air bags, at least upgrade your bump stops. On my stocks with HS AALs. They were struggling, even before the HC rear installed.

    My truck squatted quite a bit with my camper shell and the decked system empty....adding 300lbs will definitely show. I put some air bags back there and it's back to stock ride height. I didn't want to mess with the suspension beyond the air bags bc I do use the truck for work and pulling my camper and smaller trailers so lifting it or going down the road of adding a helper or new leaf pack or blocks and then having a pretty aggressive rake and then screwing with the front to correct it and so on was not appealing to me. Not to be that guy but 300+lbs in the bed, the camper and the decked system and you're at gross with two adults.....I'm waiting till I move for the last time and getting a tundra for towing stuff bc of this reason.

    If you are going to trim, a dremel should get the job done.

    Update: save your money, decked is worth maybe half of what it retails for. Everytime I open my tail gate I find a new fastener spinning because of the garbage inserts they used. I wouldn't trust this thing to hold a bed of single row 2x4s. Pulling it out and giving to my nephew , if the damn thing will come out with out any crappy inserts spinning. SAVE YOUR MONEY.

    I sent them an email about their inserts and the crap design back when they gave me issues the first time. The best way to ensure someone doesn't have to deal with this is to steer them away from this over priced product. Like I said, for the weight, and overall lack of quality and attention to detail certain parts of this design; it's worth roughly half of what retail is.

    I really like this DECKED product. But, was wondering how much does it rattle in a bumpy setting. Normal driving vs off-roading? Roads out here in Michigan are crap.

    I don't think you'd hear it in the cab of your truck. The drawers when not loaded down are loud and move around.
