Do You Have a Cargo Management System?

The Cargo Management System is a track that runs at the top of the bed, just under the rails.  In some cases, there may be a rail at the bottom of the bed, although this rail wouldn’t affect a tonneau cover installation.

Cargo Management Systems are an innovative way to load and store heavy and/or bulky cargo.  It utilizes channeling that allows you to move a set of cleats around in order to better secure your cargo.
