The bed of your truck is a fantastic option for hauling just about anything you can imagine, but it can also become really messy if you don’t have the proper system to organize your tools and materials that you need to carry around with you. There’s a lot of storage options out there, and almost all of them work with multiple BACKRACK™ products.
Tonneau covers come in a few options: there’s hardcover, retractable and tri-fold options. The retractable version is designed so that it will fit pretty much every make and model of pickup trucks sold on the market today. The tri-fold version is made up of soft, folding vinyl. These covers offer protection for the bed of your truck which means you can use that feature year-round because everything you put in there is now protected from the elements. Regardless of which one you select, a Tonneau cover is a great addition to any truck and they can usually be purchased with your truck or as aftermarket adjustments. BACKRACK™ truck racks may also be used in combination with your Tonneau cover.
If you need to carry around a lot of tools with you to various places then you most likely already carry around a tool box, but when you put it in the back of your pickup truck it might slide around and cause dents or marks to your truck bed. There are toolboxes that can be installed right into the bed of your truck, making it so that you will have everything you need at your fingertips, but it also ensures that nothing is sliding around when you are on the road.
Having a toolbox installed in the back of your truck also ensures that your tools and materials stay safe, dry and away from the harsh elements you may be faced with outside. If you already have a BACKRACK™ or are thinking about getting one you can still get a tool box installed. BACKRACK™ tool racks are made so that they work with the majority of factory accessories and most aftermarket additions.
If what you’re toting around is too large to fit into a tool box storage solution but you still need something to hold things in place, then you might want to consider installing some cargo bars. This kind of storage solution creates a grid-like set up in the back of your truck where you can store tools, materials and other items. The bars will hold the items in place avoiding them from sliding around when you are on the road.
No matter what storage solution is right for your truck, it’s great to know that your BACKRACK™ truck rack will work with all of them. You can customize your storage solution and install one of these racks at the same time.
