    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    What do you think of this set-up? I'm thinking of adding this in my truck bed.

    Great for chillin at the beach or tailgating or something.
    I like it if it's easy to swap in & out. Build coolers into them, or line with plastic for ice?

    I'm almost ready to pull the trigger on it considering just a bedrug is $300-$400 and I could do it like this for pretty cheap.

    This is a CL find and the guy wants $45.00! One problem....he's 7 hours away. Decisions, decisions.

    That's totally worth the drive for $45. You couldn't buy the stuff to build one for that. Go for it.

    I understand. That's a lot of gas money driving 14 hours round trip.

    And there's no guarantee it will fit. He says it fits a 6 ft box but I don't like the looks of those little wingy looking things on the outside edge.

    I think I may take that idea, though. Looking at how the center board sits on 1x2's (?) to make the bed has given me the hope that I can figure it out and make my own.

    Carpet kit fits most 6' beds. Used on both Toyota and Nissan pickups. Side storage compartments with cup holders. Kit installs/un-installs in one minute without tools! Great for storing valuables and makes into a flat bed for camping. Clean and in good shape. Will help you load it into your vehicle.
