    So which would you recommend?

    From what I can tell-

    Dakine Pick-up Pad:
    Pros
    Room for a lot of bikes (5)
    Less time to throw my bike in the truck

    Cons
    No locks whatsoever for the pad or the bikes (wouldn't be hard to run a chain through the frame though)
    Could scratch the paint on my tailgate if left on too long?
    Should be removed installed with each use


    Driveshaft SD:
    Pros
    Semi-permanently installed
    15/20mm thruaxles can be locked
    Able to secure 9mm QR and 15/20mm thruaxles (good for my Heckler, or mine and my wife's hardtails)


    Cons
    Takes a little more time to put the bikes in the truck
    $80 each
    Have to remove the front wheel and most likely store inside the truck
    9mm QR bikes can not be locked
