Anyone thought about putting a wakeboard boat bladder in the bed? Those suretrax things cost WAY too much.

pics? I don't really know what a wakeboard boat bladder is

And why not build boxed sections that fit over the wheel wells?

The back panel pushing against the wheel well keeps it from sliding forward, the front panel pushing against the wheel well keeps it from sliding backwards, and a 2x6 wedged tightly in the middle will push both "boxes" against the outside of the bed, so it won't move side to side.
