The DECKED Cargo Storage Solution For Your 2013 Ford F150 Series
Sales numbers have proven Americans' love for pick-up trucks year after year. Consistently, trucks have taken the top slot in the vehicles sales list pinpointing a boom in demand for huge US-made pick-ups. But how did it start? There was a time the conventional American vehicle was the '57 Chevy, then came the Chrysler minivan, and now we are a predominantly Ford F-150 Accessories nation. In fact, America's top three selling vehicles are all full-sized pick-up trucks –the Ford F-series of trucks, Chevrolet Silverado, and the RAMs 1500 through 3500. Automakers are aligning themselves to this kind of response, doubling their production capacities for pick-up trucks. But why?
Dating back to the 19th century, there was a time when almost 95% of Americans lived on farms scattered all over the country; these businesses transported to and connected with each other using horse wagons. Many years later, today, about 35% of the current generation of Americans still do farm business, but while modernity has since come of age, the original culture and need for moving around with goods lives on still, and the demand for efficient transportation is what binds the entire nation together. The pick-up culture could never have come at a better time with most automakers trying to make their products as compatible with many accessories as possible to better suit evolving customer demands. In serving this market, DECKED makes its product range compatible with the 2013 Ford F-150 bed accessories, once again putting a smile to Ford lovers’ faces .
A primary reason Americans want to own trucks is the bed, which comes in handy for a range of uses, including, but not limited to, hauling trailers, turning it into cabinetry, devising it into a makeshift tailgate lounge for outdoor camping, and cargo storage and transportation.
But sometimes, depending on what you want to do with it, you may want to customize it a bit to boost its performance or make it more versatile, in which case you could add some modifications. If possible, you'd take it back to the manufacturer's for some touch-ups here and there so more functional parts could be added to suit your needs, but that would kind of take you forever and a day and cost you an arm and a leg, so most people prefer sticking with the maker's inventory and adding accessories to bring the inlays to speed with their needs.
The 2013 Ford F-150 model comes with a range of bed accessories which are compatible with the DECKED products. They include:
Sometimes you may need to dress your Ford-150 with side rails to maximize your cargo-hauling capacity and get better-tied downs. Truck bed rails are just long metals that run the length of the bed and are attached atop the bed walls. They come in handy for extra grip when transporting or hauling larger items that require multiple tie points. Other than the obvious practical utility of enhancing cargo holding, they add to your truck's aesthetics, especially if they have a shining luster, thereby making your truck look a little cooler.
The DECKED storage system is compatible with a range of Ford F150 bed rail Accessories you would wish to install on your truck , provided they leave an allowance of up to 22" wide for the tool box to rest.
For the Drawer System , though, you may only have to worry about height rather than width. You need to ensure that the railings do not go deeper into the bed space-eating through the 12″ clearance needed.
The 2013 Ford F-150 comes with a bed height of 22.4" and width of 50", which leaves way enough leeway for the mounting of your railings. However, because you may need up to 22" of width for the Tool Box, BackRack type of railings specifically designed for 21-inch wide tool boxes are a good bet if you are seeking to organize your cargo with the tool box .
Racks enhance your truck's overhead storage capacity giving it an extraordinary performance. The DECKED Drawer System is compatible with LEITNER DESIGN , TRAIL FX, and WEATHERGUARD ATR racks all which fit quite perfectly into your 2013 Ford F-150 Accessories . However, DECKED can be sensitive to and somehow picky with rack dimensions and features . For instance, it may only work with those that have an optional flush mount kit, but we recommend reaching out to our support desk with questions or assistance.
At times, the bed space may not be enough for the things you would like to haul around, so you'd need more space, especially for extended cargo. In such situations, extenders will come in handy. They range from the traditional flip-out extenders to those that mount on your pick-up to overhead racks that add more space above your truck bed.
The 2013 Ford F-150 has a general bed length of 78.9" against a standard DECKED measurement of 75.25" (the longest DECKED Drawer System version), leaving an in-bed space allowance of about 3.9".The shorter version has a bed length of 64.54”. If you prefer the longer version, you'd need to ensure your Ford F-150 extender works comfortably with the 3.9” space allowance if it somehow stretches inwards; otherwise, DECKED works just fine with extenders that do not require much of an in bed space.
You may need to ramp up your cargo organization system, such as add more functionality by compartmentalizing what you already have. Bed dividers have been used since time immemorial for this kind of task. The Ford F-150 comes with its specially designed divider application which, when not in use, folds comfortably along the bed walls but, when deployed, stands strongly. DECKED is quite picky in regards to the kind of dividers it works with. Nevertheless, the Ford comes with a bed height of 21.4 inches against DECKED's 12", meaning you'd have an allowance of about 9.4" for which to fix your desired divider. Still, there are a range of factors to consider, including your divider dimensions, the point of attachment (truck bed bottom screwing or sidewall attachment), among others. Reach out to the support desk for advice.
If you want to add a bit of style to your truck bed, you may have to think about a fiberglass cap. This is just a topper or a capsule, but it is also referred to by different names: camper shells, truck caps , or tops. Whatever dude! The accessory is used to add a canopy-like housing or compartment atop the truck bed, covering the entire space giving your truck an RV look. It adds an extra layer of cargo protection from theft and elements in most cases. The 2013 Ford F-150 bed has its own specially designed fiberglass Accessories that match the rest of the truck body, giving it a complete outlook, but perhaps the idea that it is compatible with DECKED is what should get you bursting with joy. And yes, DECKED is compatible with a range of other fiberglass brands, provided they fit on your truck's bed rail.
Agreeably, Tonneau covers are visually ravishing. They offer a classy element to your truck's frame, making your car appealing. However, the benefits of bed covers go over this aesthetic utility.
