Adding Inner Bed Walls

Has anyone played around with the idea of adding an inner bed wall to prevent items from rolling around and denting the bed? With the single wall bed I'm always paranoid about something moving and dinging the bed, theres already a couple dents where that happened when a previous owner had it.


I've thought about fabbing up a frame that would bolt to the bed floor and somewhere on the bed rails then bolting tread plate or sheet metal to that to form a removable second wall. Any other ideas or experience?

It is, last time I checked, still a truck. Try rhino liner, remove able plywood sides/bottom, or an expandable tension bar to section off the bed for less moving or sliding. Add some tie points and tie things down.

Sorry if it sounds arrogant, but I am not afraid to use my truck for its' originally intended purpose.

economan is starting off with a positive reputation.
I thought of doing it w/my econoline p/u last time i did it over, have since kicked my *** for not doing it as we ended up using the econo as our main truck when we built our house 7 yrs ago. Got lots of outee dents to repair next time i refreshen up the truck.
It still gets used as a truck for dump runs loading our whitewater kayaks in, loading furniture in when we go antiquing, mountain bikes, everything from body parts to engines & rearends when we go tin huntin' etc, etc,etc, but it hasta look good for both show & go.
My plan it to simply "metal break" up flat panels out of body steel which will have an "L" on the bottom to bolt to the floor with some stainless 1/4 carriage bolts and tuck in behind the inside lip of the boxrail also fastened w/carr. bolts . They wont have to be particulaly pretty cuz i have a custom made flush tonneau cover.
