They make all kinds of safe crates for the bed of a pickup. Do what you want but your lack of crate training and wanting your dog free in the cab shows little actual care for the animal. It is something I feel strongly about. Also if you don't have the proper equipment (in an open rear truck, you need a special box that is bolted to the truck) then maybe you should not bring your dog with, or borrow a corectly equipped vehicle until you can get yours set up. I have a topper and with a tether system to hold down the standard plastic crate. Nothing to elaborate.
