It was all of these issues that prompted me to start looking for a solution. I looked at a lot of different styles of toolboxes, tonneau covers, and more, before I came across DECKED. Now, many of you have heard Greg Randolph of DECKED on the show talking with us about their storage system. Furthermore, y’all have asked us what we think about it and if we would spend our cash on it. We’ve had a DECKED unit in our trucks for five months and have really put it through the paces in that short amount of time. So, on this installment of Buy or Bust we’re taking a closer look at this innovative system.
DECKED is a truck bed storage system that gives your bed more function with the addition of two drawers that stow away under a full bed sized platform or deck. This system is made of high density polyethylene (HDPE) that is molded to a steel subframe for some serious durability. Each drawer can handle 200 pounds and the deck is equipped to handle a true 2,000-pound payload. So, load up your ATV’s and Side-by-Sides, haul construction supplies, or even put a bull elk right on top. With a 2,000-pound payload, your cargo options are endless. At only 12 inches tall, you don’t sacrifice bed room for storage – sitting in the bottom of your bed there is still plenty of space which allows you to use your bed as you would have before installing it. The drawers roll out smooth on dual sealed ball bearing wheels, and the weight load on the deck above doesn’t affect their ability to pull out with ease. In addition, the drawers pull out at waist height, so you can reach in easily and load or unload and organize your gear as you see fit. Rather than just tossing everything in a drawer and hitting the road, you have the ability to better organize all your gear with the use of drawer dividers to compartmentalize. In addition, individual toolboxes called D Boxes are customized to fit right within the drawer and you can further separate and organize your gear.
Now that you’ve successfully moved all your gear from the cab to these handy drawers in your bed…what about security? We don’t leave valuables in our bed while traveling, that’s a recipe for someone to steal it. However, when all your gear is tucked away inside your DECKED unit, you don’t need to worry about security. When you shut your tailgate, those drawers cannot be opened. If you don’t have a locking tailgate, DECKED has locks for the drawers to keep your gear secure. Finally, for all of you who love America, note that DECKED is made exclusively in the United States. High-five for American made products.
So, would we spend our hard-earned coin on a DECKED unit? Our answer is overwhelmingly, “Yes!” It adds function and utility and it will resolve any storage and organization issues you’re faced with. Plus, DECKED will give you the convenience of an SUV, while still allowing you to keep your “Man card” by avoiding the dreaded “Family friendly” vehicle takeover. No offense ladies, we’re positive there are plenty of you huntresses out there that prefer a truck, as well, just like Mrs. Bunny.
