+1 for the square plastic plugs on Amazon. I have them and they do the trick. Cheap and simple.
What is the benefit of plugging the squares in the framing?
Looks much cleaner, I used the Amazon set on mine.
Honestly probably mostly psychological benefit. Looks cleaner and I don’t have to worry about junk/bugs getting in there.

new light kit for the V2 by @Lobofabworks
This week I made an idea I had for a simple storage bag mounted to the Toyota T-track under the bed rail. I attached it with the Gzila Track nuts by way of some grommets. About 12"x8". I sized this one to fit between the GFC mount and the small cubby in my bed. I also made it a bit short to leave room for a platform I plan on putting above the wheel wells.
I plan on making a total of 2 or 4 for my truck, and I’ll be using this for camping gear, tie down straps, bike tools, ski tools, and whatever else I want accessible. I do plan on trying frame bags at some point, but these have a couple benefits, being cheaper and not in the way when reaching into the bed via the side panels.
This one is white with orange thread, and uses recycled Ecopak EPLX400 packcloth. This fabric is a waterproof laminate with a 400d face fabric with a DWR, and a film on the inside to make the fabric heavier and waterproof. This bag is not fully waterproof, as I chose not to tape the seams. However, the fabric and zipper are waterproof so water should stay out well enough considering it will be mounted inside the GFC. I considered a fully waterproof rolltop version as well, but opted for the zipper for convenience. Let me know what you guys think! This is something I could make in different sizes, colors, and designs if interest is out there.

In regard to T-track bags posted above, I will definitely be making more. Thinking $40 for a single or $70 for a set of 2. Price will include mounting hardware and be shipped to your door. Track nuts I’ll ship straight to you from Gzila.
There are several color options. Heavier fabric (EPLX 400, one shown in photos) comes in black, white, grey, and coyote brown. Lighter version of the fabric (EPX 200) is available in bright orange, bright blue, teal, and fuschia. Both fabrics are recycled and will perform well, so it’s totally valid to go with the lighter one if you want a bright color.
I plan to stick to the size I made since it seems to work well, but let me know if you prefer something different and I can do that.
First 5 orders will get a 10% early bird discount from the prices stated above, and lead times will be a week or two since these are made to order. PM me anytime if you have any questions!
