Decked – The Ultimate Truck Bed Organizer System Reviewed
Pickup trucks are fantastically versatile things. They can act as the rugged workhorse of the weekday, drop your kids at school, carry the family around on the weekend errands, and allow you to have a blast in the wilderness when the going gets tough and the tough gets going. However, you may have noticed that their very nature is an open bed for luggage. There are many solutions to improve the basic design for carring loads, such as tonneau covers, full canopies, and truck bed organizer systems. And it’s the latter that we’re going to look at today.
The brand we are focusing on is Decked, a renowned name that produces quality off-road gear for the discerning enthusiast. Organizers can take the form of a drawer system, which is how the Decked system works, retaining the versatility of your truck’s bed while allowing you access to covered and lockable storage. Let’s look at some of the options offered by Decked.
Features Of Decked Truck Bed Storage System

Decked’s offerings are built from 100% recycled high-density polyurethane that’s co-molded to a stainless steel subframe which also incorporates a degree of recycled steel, so there’s an environmental benefit as well.

Pros Of Truck Bed Drawer Storage
A significant benefit of truck bed drawer storage is the versatility it creates. You can organize and categorize your luggage, as options such as Decked’s range come with ‘ammo cans’ that provide side storage which is ideal for smaller tools or beverage cans.
Direct fit truck bed drawers do not require any modification to your truck, particularly drilling, as they utilize the factory infrastructure already present on board. This means you preserve the originality of your vehicle which is vital for many discerning off-roaders and will alleviate fears of harming resale values.
Decked’s offerings are renowned for being plug-and-play units that fit perfectly in a correctly matched truck bed and offer smooth operation of the drawers, which is praised in many reviews. The 2,000lb payload is also considered ample for most needs.
Cons of Truck Bed Drawer Storage
The major drawback for many is to justify spending over $1,000 on a truck bed organizer drawer system unless it’s regularly used to its full potential. Decked’s solutions have also have an inability to fully extend the drawers, making accessibility and cleaning a bit more complicated.
Another negative factor is that a truck bed drawer storage system increases the height of your truck bed’s effective luggage area by several inches, which is significant if you use the load space on a regular basis. This also makes it less convenient to carry taller objects, as they are less protected by the sides of the bed.
