Supports for Hauling Plywood
I dont know if anyone has ever done this before, people almost probably have, but I thought I would share this with you guys. I have a Ford bed liner in mine and I saw the slots in the sides and wondered what they were there for.
After looking at them for a while my dad and I noticed that they were just about level with the wheel wells so we thought maybe we could put wood from slot to slot to better haul big items like plywood. We got two pieces of cedar and the cut them to length.
Now the piece fit in the front pretty easily enough. The back one was another story. The piece in the front has enough room to be swung into place but the back one doesnt. We ended up cutting the other piece in half and then putting a door hinge to connect the two pieces and some rods to support the wood when it had weight on it.

When I dont need them I just lay them one top of the other in the front
They have worked for me so far and come in handy when I need to get plywood, which we seem to get a lot here!
Just curious, anyone else have something similar to this or ever seen this before??
