    Oh one or two.
    Okay so I've got a prototype part I'm working on for all of us recreational guys that haul our toys!
    I'll have a steel prototype made this weekend but I'd like to hear what you guys like to secure in your bed?

    The list of things it will have
    ratchet strap points
    Spots for removable fork mounts for your bike
    Dirt bike/motor cycle tie-down points with detachable/optional front tire wedge
    And two bottle openers for that frosty beverage after a long day.

    So what would you guys like to see on it?

    Haul wood the most and I'm guessing for others this is a common item. There is a need to hold the low end down to the bed while it hangs out over the tailgate.

    I'm assuming something on the bed bolts would be the only option for that.

    I'm assuming you are gearing this more toward the dirt bike guys. There is a definite need for something in the bed beyond the Toyota side rails for strapping down a bike or two. Interested in seeing your design. Hoping to get some dirt bikes or quad for me and my son in a few years.

    Yeah it will be a rail mounted system for bikes, dirt bikes as well as just a solid tie down point. It will be attached to all 3 rails.

    I mostly haul mountain bikes, but don't want to remove the front wheel. I've been loading the bikes so the front wheel drapes over the bed extender

    Unfortunately no more then a design as of right now. I've been meaning to cut one out but we have been swamped!

    This kind of caught my eye as I bring my mountain bike around. Removing the front wheel and/or tonneau I'd rather do without, but also like cool new ways to mount.
