    Here's something close to what your looking for. I imagine you could weld a spreader piece along the bottom of the bed to connect the 2 stiffeners SS Built sells.

    Thanks. I like the idea of the stiffener; just wanted to make sure it wasn't essential for everyday usage. Appreciate your confirmation of my thoughts.

    How are your racks attached to the rails on your setup? I have a DB cover that sits on the entire perimeter of the bed. My rack attaches to the cleats on the cover. And tent is clamped to the rack. I guess the side to side shifting will play into the moving the rails over time.

    I am trying to see how the forces would splay the bed rails. Is there something going on with the design of the bed rails that would make this situation more noticeable.

    Perhaps the Rago or similar stiffeners would make sense for the Gen 3's?

    @PBNB -- Rago website states they are available for Gen 3 vehicles. Visually appealing to me.

    I have had the Rago installed since ~September. Also have a steel tall bed rack and soft top roof top tent. No signs of bed issues and they are plenty strong and the build quality is excellent. I was able to intall them with the Decked box already installed as well. This is the best I can get right now, screen caps from my YouTube video. I can get better pics this afternoon if you want.

    I love Rago. I have a couple products from them. I however have Total Chaos bed stiffeners for my 2016 Tundra. Have had them on for a couple years no complaints.

    I'm looking at Rago, but they say that for the composite bed, modification may be required. Not sure what that means. Do you have the composite bed? What was the installation like?

    Are those Ragos on the composite bed? If so, what additional work was there to install?

    I have them as well. You take out the rear most bed bolts, drill a few holes in the sides, take out the taillights and tighten everything down. Super easy if you’re cool with drilling holes in your new truck.
