In collaboration with Altair Product Design group of Detroit, DECKED’s patent pending design is the culmination of nearly three years of intense R&D using American ingenuity and manufacturing.
Storing and accessing your stuff needs to be easy. After years of failing to find a good solution we finally did it ourselves and designed DECKED. We developed a system which raises the deck, allowing you to store your tools, hardware and other items securely, out of the way, and out of the weather while having full use of the rest of your truck bed. Your time is money and being more efficient and working with less effort allows you more time and energy off the clock to do what you really love.
It can take a hell of a lot of toys to have a lot of fun. With DECKED you can store your rods, guns, skis, boards, sleeping bags, camp gear, tailgate party “items” or whatever else you need. Whether it be at the lake, ocean, mountain or parking lot you can pretty much bring everything – including your girlfriend. Have a cold one on the top, lock your aspirin underneath, park your four-wheeler above and stash your pride below. It’s up to you, fun hog. How are you going to use your DECKED?
Using CAD data and OEM engineering standards, DECKED is designed to out-perform the competition under even the toughest conditions. Utilizing HDPE co-molded around a steel frame, you will experience the torsional and lateral stiffness of a factory feel truck bed. Thanks to our Detroit-based engineering team, you get the strength-to-weight ratio of a prize fighter in a product that boasts a 2,000 LBS. true load rating while weighing in at only approximately 200 LBS.
We didn’t bring a knife to a gun fight. We brought a cannon. In designing DECKED we spent years of research and development to deliver a product that will stand up to all the use, and most of the abuse, you can throw at it. HDPE represents the ultimate in impact-resistant, weather-proof materials. Melded to an engineered steel frame, the result is a combination of materials that will last the lifetime of your truck.
We went to great lengths to ensure comprehensive high quality and durability of DECKED. Like true truck geeks, we use only stainless or zinc chromate steel hardware and DECKED’s steel parts are finished with rust inhibitors that exceed automotive standards. From top to bottom, attention to workmanship and detail sets DECKED apart.
We did something your mother could never do; got you organized. Each of DECKED’s drawers feature a 200 LBS. load carrying capacity and provides you nearly limitless custom storage solutions to make your day more efficient. Now you can keep your gear and tools organized, accessible, secure and out of the weather without affecting the use of your truck bed. Load ‘em, organize ‘em, and get down to business.
Utilizing only your truck’s tie down points, DECKED is easily installed without drilling or otherwise screwing up your truck bed. Tie down anchors are accessed via structural ammo cans positioned according to your truck bed’s dimensions in all four corners of your truck bed. Your DECKED product will be securely installed the only engineering valid way it could be done – to your tie-downs.
Four ammo cans located in the DECKED bed corners offer additional storage to our massive drawers. Store and easily access your service items, tow straps, or emergency flask. Ammo can lids flip over to reveal drink holders when it’s time for a cold one, or can be used to organize small items like screws, nuts, and bolts while working on or around your truck.
Each DECKED system is shaped to fit your truck perfectly, matching the unique topography of nearly every 5 ½’ (short) and 6 ½’ (standard) pick up bed on the market since the late 1990’s. From wheel well height and fore/aft position, to sidewall shape to tailgate/bed relationship, DECKED fits like it rolled off the factory floor with your truck. Forget clunky aftermarket products; DECKED guarantees a snug fit every time.
No one wants an install to resemble the assembly of your kid’s latest Christmas toy, which is why we designed DECKED to be easily installed. Installation uses the existing tie-downs in your truck, and takes less than a six pack’s worth of your buddy’s time. The system can be easily removed in under 30 minutes.
Get more out of your DECKED drawers with customizable storage thanks to our accessory trays and dividers. Segment your space to fit your needs and utilize removable trays to truly get organized for the task. The trays and drawers are tinted light gray to make seeing what you are looking for easier. Accessories sold separately.
DECKED custom-made Core Trax 1000 and T-track mounting systems allow you to install robust tie down loops or mount Yakima, Thule and other rack systems quickly and easily. The tracks mount directly to DECKED’s steel frame ensuring bomber performance. Accessories sold separately.
Lock up your tools, guns, rods, skis, etc. more securely with our drawer lock and key system. Utilize optional drawer drain plugs to drain water and melted ice, making clean up from an epic tailgate party a breeze. Accessories sold separately.

This was a transition year for Ford and as such they produced old and new body styles in the 2004 model year with a 6′ 6″ bed length. So, for a time, both body types were being sold as 2004 models.
If you do NOT have a stepped down passenger and driver side door windows, you have the older F-150, or “Heritage” version. If this is the case, select the DECKED product F-150 1997-2004 Heritage edition.
DECKED DOES NOT fit the full size four-door short bed Ford F-150 Super Crew made from 2000 through 2003 or the similar sized truck in 2004 badged as the Super Crew Heritage. The bed dimensions are just too small.
If you have the “step down” side windows (see image) you have the “new” 2004 version thus you will select the DECKED F-150 2004-current, bed length 5′ 7″ or 6′ 6″.
The Tailgate is where we drop it, kick it, and let both the adventure and party get started. Sharing knowledge, camaraderie and good times with all of our fans is important to us. We are constantly on the road attending events and shows. Check out our list of events and come have a cold one with us.
Developing products that can take the use and abuse we hope you give DECKED takes a high level of research, development and feedback, which is why we have assembled a team of some of the most respected fishermen, hunters and action sports athletes out there.
