DECKED full-sized pickup truck bed storage system

DECKED full-sized pickup truck bed storage system

DECKED, manufacturers of a new full-sized pickup truck bed storage system, has announced its full line of products and accessories are now available for order on the company’s website and from select dealers across the country. DECKED is a storage system that attaches to the tie-downs in your full-sized pickup truck without drilling to provide secure, weatherproof storage for gear while improving the utility and functionality of the pickup truck bed.

The concept for DECKED came from the company’s founder who worked out of his truck for years as an outdoor product salesman. He quickly learned he needed a better way to organize and protect his gear while still retaining the functionality of the truck bed. DECKED is designed to keep gear dry, organized and secure.

The full-sized truck bed storage system incorporates two waterproof, bed-length drawers which roll out to provide easy access to tools, equipment and additional gear. The deck of the storage system is built from 100 percent recycled high-density polyethylene co-molded to a steel sub frame providing a 2,000-pounds load capacity. The drawers can hold up to 200 pounds each and are lockable to provide secure storage. Each drawer can hold tools, parts and supplies, sporting goods, or just about anything that is normally stored in a truck bed. The system is weatherproof and the deck can be configured to accommodate tie downs or rack systems. The DECKED system can be mounted in nearly every full size pickup truck made since the late 1990s, is easy to install, and mounts to the truck bed’s existing tie downs with no drilling required.
