    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.

    Yeah ours will span the whole bed attaching to the side rails as well. Now that we have a laser in house we should have a working prototype soon.

    Will the current rack system have any attachments that be added to mount bikes off the side?

    I would like to see a very stable, pivotable, system that can move around to different anchor points. An easy "switchable" design that would go from rails to bed walls to bed floor mount...now all of this given the universal attachments are in all of these points.

    I want to attach my Hi Lift to the front wall of the bed and a bracket that works with quick fists is what i'm trying to conjur up. I'm also wanting brackets that are MUCH more low profile than the OEM rail mounting options that can slide, pop out and move, and will have enough of a "loop" that even the the largest of S-hooks will click in.

    It's a lot to ask for but that's what i'm picturing

    Your kinda building yourself out of production and into the custom built.

    I figured as much. I'm still trying to decide how it would work. I have some ideas I might bounce off of you when I get to that point. If I decide on a design would you be willing to work with me on it?

    The price is $125 an hour so it all depends on how much i have to do to create your parts.
