Can be mounted horizontally or vertically to suit different needs
Integrated bottle openers
Powder coat finish is trail ready
Customizable 4WP logo plate
The Tacoma Bed Stiffeners are the best solution for the customer who wants to use their rig to its fullest potential on and off road. The unique internal brace system allows for full use of the truck while providing additional strength, integrated bottle openers and tie down point options. The bed stiffeners also provide a customizable logo plate and come fully powder coated to be trail ready out of the box.
I do not know why people keep buying the ones that take up bed space like Jack cut some flat bar stock and welded his logo on it, drilled a few holes and bolted it on. Can not use your bed with the L brackets bolted on in the way of sliding sheets of plywood in or whatever else you may be using your bed for. These are done right. They fit behind where they have no impact on how you use your bed. You want the cheap solution or the best solution.

5.0Reinforcement for topper style camper install
Very well made, good installation instructions. I like that it is hidden, instead of taking up space in the truck bed. Harder to install than the other types, but worth it. Preparing for my Four Wheel Camper Project M topper style camper.

5.0Worked great, pretty much invisible
These worked great, and don't take up any space in the bed or make it harder to get stuff in and out of it. Note that the instructions don't say anything about straightening the bed before install, but that's even more important with these than other stiffeners. If your bed sides are already sagging, slide two tie-down points all the way back and put a ratchet strap between them. Use it to pull the bed sides together until they're in the right position, before you drill any holes. Otherwise these stiffeners won't correct the sag (though they'll prevent it from getting worse).
If you're using a rack-it lumber rack (I am), you'll need to do some extra drilling to make the rear rack mount brackets fit with the bed stiffeners. But then you can use the rack mounts in lieu of the tie-down plates that come with the stiffeners. I drilled the stiffeners to match the brackets, worked great.

These bed stiffeners are really nice. I like that they are hidden and you can have full function of the truck bed. I will say install was a bit more than I thought it would be. Took me about 3 hours to install. However I am very happy with the outcome.
4.04WP Bed Stiffeners
I’m giving it 4 out of 5 stars because of the install time and drilling into the truck. However I did choose this from 4WP because it is hidden. Unlike other brands that are on the exterior and could take up bed space. The install was pretty clean and got it done in about 2 hours. Make sure before the install you have a can of paint or rust preventer like fluid film or something to stop corrosion. Measure twice and drill once. It did help my bed quite a bit though. It’s stiffer and now I can shut my tailgate without touching. The previous owner bent the bed. Overall the product is really well made.

Got this for my 2019 tacoma, and love that the majority is hidden as opposed to most stiffiners i have seen where all the hardware mount in the bed.
