    OK, so I bought some of the same double-sided tape all of you guys use for everything.. Anyways the cubby isnt staying in place still.. I cleaned both areas with alcohol before applying.. Anyways, any ideas on how to keep the cubbies in place?
    I find it stupid that the cubbies are held on by double sided tape to begin with.. but eh.. Ideas... please?

    A cubby is a single weird thingamadooge in our truck beds... a cubbie is the plural form of the thingamadooge.. lol

    I think he meant chubbies. It's those girls that are extra thick! They tend to move around a lot when you drive abruptly. I usually don't let them ride in my truck in the first place.

    they actually clip in place.... the tape is more like extra security. if you take the wheel well liner out or take the cubby out you will see there are tabs all over them to hold them in. best way to get it to stay in is to pull the liners, put the cubby in and then make sure the tabs are fully engaged outside of the bed.

    mine stay put now....its like they forgot to check that at toyota? same thing as the tie down rail in the bed---the end caps dont stay on BECAUSE THEY DONT FIT PROPERLY!!!

    stupid toyota. going for transmission number three next week....only 70oookm on my taco....

    Just use two pan head 1/2" self tapper screws. Everytime I went into the dirt or anything mildly bumpy they bounced right out of the bedside. Cheap on Toyotas part. Self tappers work great and is about a .10 cent fix haha

    If you're not planning on removing them you could just use epoxy.
