After 2 years of different configurations, I’ve learned I like the bed of my truck as free as possible for hauling, lounging, and sleeping when i don’t want to pop the tent. Here’s what I’ve done so far to keep stuff up off the floor.
- aftermarket molle panels for heavy things… builtright industries and underland offroad
- DIY ceiling-mounted table tray made of 3/8" plywood w/ webbing molle sheet underneath
- DIY trim channel mounting bracket on top and bottom camper tubes w/ rivnuts
- DIY gear panels made of standard retail display grid, cut slightly to fit and mounted on trim channel from (3). Attach things facing bed or facing panels.
I purchased most materials at hardware stores or online. You can find good deals on used retail gridpanels on fb marketplace or craigslist. To attach things I make 1" webbing or cable straps cut to length. Pics to show bed in normal use and closeups on the additions.
I can post more about the chinese battery box I modified if people are interested. My favorite part about adding all this stuff has been doing it on city streets w/out a garage. The F150’s onboard 2kw generator makes anywhere angle grinding a possibility
