Default Official Pickup bed gadgets & gizmo thread

I figured instead of cluttering the crew cab 1500hd quadrasteer thread... why not start a new one.

post pickup bed accessories, gizmos, and gadgets in here... wild, cool, lame, whatever.

it's crazy how custom they can get, how expensive they get, and that they can still support 2k lbs on top of them which would SURELY put you over the trucks weight capacity anyways.

I need some neat bed storage that fits inside the bed behind the wheel wells. That way I can still have tow straps and other gear with the quad in back. All the ones I've found require drilling into the bed and I'm not too keen on doing that. Using the stock bed extender holes would be best.

Or maybe I'll just find a Ford bed extender for sale.

One of the bigger issues I've read about is they pull out (heh) over time and fuck the metal up as well as galvanic corrosion if using the cheap included hardware.

Ford Bed Extender FTW. 30 second install and stores out of the way.

I was looking at some of those and they're definitely cool but my quad doesn't fit completely IN the bed and the rear wheels sit on the tailgate so this would just make the quad sit higher and at an angle.

I'm about to get some aluminum stock and just fab up my own plates for one of the boxes I've seen.

is your quad too long because of the tires or something else? is it close or a ways off?

Those were the exact ones I was looking at.

And my quad is long. It fits on the bed and tailgate perfectly, just not in the bed completely.

my thought was that maybe it'd be up high enough to clear the tailgate if it was on top of one of the decked things.

I mean I could find some stainless steel/billet aluminum hardware and not have to worry about corrosion for a while and maybe even use silicon while installing to seal everything up nicely.

Found a pic. This is with a trailer tire in front of the left tire so it doesn't smash against the bed.



I mean... If I remove the tire in front, a floor chest would work pretty well. I'd just be leery of the tires wanting to fall off the back and causing extra tension on the cargo hooks.

And that fucker weighs 750lbs.

The bed extender might be your best bet then. What length is the bed?

5'8" I believe. Typical short bed.

For carrying the quad, yeah the bed extender would be great. Hell, just thought about the ramps too, that would be perfect. Wouldn't have to worry about strapping them down, just throw in, close extended and off I go.

Basically I'm trying to still have lockable, out-of-the-way storage and so I can get rid of the toolbox. Maybe I'm asking too much.
