Using the bed for groceries and shopping used a 2x6 added straps and purchased a 54 qt Igloo White Marine Cooler . Stays in place well and groceries do not slide all over. Best mod for daily life and behind the 2x6 is a 2x4 so incase we need yo haul plywood we are ready.

Not the greatest pic but I have an Engel in my bed. I have it Secured with straps and a cable lock. It works for additional lockable dry storage or is great on the beach or trail full of ice and refreshments

I always have my Yeti up on the cab, don't want that much weight hanging off the rear behind the axle.

Thanks BrightWhite for the tip, used some gloss enamel on the 2x8 and it does look almost OEM!

That's a great idea. I have a rubber mat in mine so things usually don't slide, but once in a while something will. It's usually while it's pouring rain and then I've got to unroll my cover to get to it, getting soaked in the process. Yes, I like that mod indeed.

Item: 11033.2110
Rugged Ridge 13550.21 Armis Soft Folding Bed Cover for 2020 Jeep Gladiator JT
$398.65 each
I purchased it from Quadratec and had some difficulty because i did not have the correct tork bit when installing but finally got it installed properly. Fits well, folds up and seals well. It took me about an hour to install, basically just six bolts and a liitle hardware, label says it is a Rugged Ridge. I like it better than the roll up style.
