    I had to move some large furniture with my 17 Taco for the first time today. When using ratchet straps I noticed the bed flexing like a fold up lawn chair... will these prevent that? Scared the bejesus out of me the first time I saw it:smack:

    Just broke down and bought a pair... I thought those gaps were normal... I'll be glad to see them gone.

    So ive got only a softtopper on my 15 OR and do some moderate offroading at Uwharrie National forest in NC. Smaller rocks and hill climbs. Not crawling over anything huge. gets a little tricky but I don't go on the "difficult" rated trails. Thoughts? everytime I'm on this forum I find new ways to spend $$! Its both a Bane and a Boon...

    I like the utility they provide with the extra tie down points, the stiffening is a bonus

    Added these for peace of mind. While installing I need to push the stiffener into the corner to get a nice fit. I just used my spreader bar. Worked great.
