    Hey all,

    I have a first gen tundra (2006) double cab and have been wanting a good storage solution for the bed. I really really like the idea of the decked product. I saw the decked drawers in an access cab model first gen and thought they were awesome. Went to the decked website and they don’t even make them for first gens. Wondering if anyone knows where I could get a decked system/a system like the decked for my double cab? It would need to be weatherproof and need to retain payload for loading ATV’s, tools etc. Earlier back I made a wooden drawer system but sold it because it was t weather resistant and I had to take my canopy off for some different uses, so this new drawer system would always be in the weather. Any ideas? Thanks!

    I also cannot use anything that takes up bed length because I need all the bed length I’ve got.

    I’ve tried contacting @DECKEDUSA and no love for the 1st gen tundras. Also asked if any other truck models would fit the DC bed and they didn’t find anything close enough. I opted for a pair of swingcases made for the 2nd gen tundra. They fit and work. Would’ve happily given Decked $1200 but they don’t like us enough. :notsure:

    Hmmm okay. Too bad because the decked product is pretty awesome for what I want to use it for. Is there any other product out there like the decked? I need storage for long and bulky items and can’t have my tie down points obstructed in the bed.

    Ironically I’ve noticed the small and lacking aftermarket compared to the turd gen+ trucks. Still really like the first gen though. To me it’s basically a bigger Tacoma with a V-8. And around here, with same miles/options, much cheaper than ANY Tacoma.

    I thought the f150 decked draws would work on our truck with a hint of trimming

    We love the Gen1 Tundra... But you guys are right. Unfortunately, we do not have a system that is made to work with this truck model at this time. We have seen people buy other systems and cut it down to fit, but the bed on the gen 1 tundra is too small for our full sized system and too big for the mid-sized system.

    Feel free to reach out to orders@decked.com with any specific questions.

    Hmmm, I still don't feel loved. If you made us a cool new toy to install, I may feel it then. I'm sure @Casper421 would too.

    I can't find the post but @DECKEDUSA once said which model vehicle they have seen people use for 1st gens. I think it was a van of some kind. You could study the dimensions on their website to figure it out.

    It’s on the decked vendor page here on the tundras website. Titled “adventure vehicles 101: the best accessories for getting your pickup truck ready for off-road”

    the man featured has a gen 1 with a decked system. Says he used “a little arts and crafts and creativity”. I wish decked would have mentioned the model he used!! What the heck!! Totally willing to buy something that I could trim to fit.

    Don’t hold me to this but I think it was one of those weird little Ford Transit vans or something similar.

    Hmm interesting. Just emailed decked personally and we will see what they say. I know that by modifying a system I’d void my warranty but I think my modifications would me minimal and the decked system is really well built so I’m not too worried about making it fit. They said in the article that he used spare parts sitting in their shop. Interested to see what decked says I need to do to get one to fit close enough to where mods are not too intense.

    Was there any update to this? Still wishing Decked will bring us a viable option one day.

    Greg emailed me back a while ago saying that the best one for our trucks was the code ds2 decked system for a 2011-2016 Ford super duty short bed. He said minor trimming would be involved.

    Stay tuned for new products. A diplomatic way to say pound sand and buy whatever you think you can cobble into what you want.

    Not knocking it. I actually like that a company must be doing good enough to brush you off. Deaver is another company that you can tell has "FU money".

    Yeah. I called them per everyones recco here and got someone worse than a Pretentious Hand Model on the line. Thats ok. ATS Springs are better and half the price. Hint: They Custom Build Springs too!

    Not sure what it is, but talking on the phone with anyone from California and Colorado in Sales is like an exercise is who can talk/interrupt the fastest.

    The simple act of opening up and asking how they are doing today begets a rapid ‘How can I help you response’ instead of the Islander response, ‘Fine! How are you?’. Every damn time. Its happening more here on the Island, too. :annoyed:

    There does seem to be some correlation between region end helpfulness. I get it bad with a heavy equipment company out of Chicago. They love to tell me I'm wrong and condescend. And then they wonder why I don't support the idea of buying another one of their $200k machines. Not when everyone else I've talked to has been completely understanding that we don't live in a perfect world and that our shop pushes the limits of design.

    Would this work for my 03 access cab? Unsure if there are differences in the bed dimensions other than 00-03 having shallower beds

    I believe so. I would try an decked system as long as the side to side and length measurements are close. It’s mostly about the corners where the ammo cans are. Those are easy to trim(at least I’m told)
