Make your Bed
Keep your most important gear organized and out of the way for when life throws you a curveball, whether that's an adventurous 'detour' or an unexpected trip to Costco.
The term MOLLE has become a bit of a buzzword in recent years and many imitation products have latched onto it, simply cutting square or rectangles into their products. The BuiltRight 'Block and Slot' pattern offers slotted features, designed for use with common 1/4" mounting hardware in addition to correct MIL-SPEC MOLLE/PALS features. Finally, the BuiltRight MOLLE Nuts (sold separately) offer an additional mounting location with a 1/4-20 threaded hole for easy installation.
Built Right, Right Here
Each Bedside Rack Panel is manufactured using high-grade 1/8" thick steel plate and is CNC cut and formed for perfect fit every time. All panels are finished with a durable texture black powdercoat for a factory look and feel.
BuiltRight is an engineering company before all else and we're obsessed with great mechanical design. Each product has a story of ideas, innovation and iteration until it's just right.
Your Bedside Rack System started as a 3D scan of multiple truck beds, in order to understand the manufacturing tolerances that Ford, GM, etc hold themselves to. We then use that data along with CAD files provided by our OEM partners to design parts that will fit your truck perfectly.
Finally, we test those parts using finite element analysis on the computer before sending them out to our network of product testers around the world. Real-world testing happens in Baja, on ranches and jobsites across the country and on the icy, salty roads from the Midwest to the Northeast.
Industry-best Customer Support
This is a very versatile and well made product. The customer service is even more genuine. I highly recommend the personal experience, in such a crazy world.
Awesome and easy to install.
I made the mistake of putting my DB bed cover on first which mounts into the Tacoma rail but the install was so easy. One thing I will note is that, they were heavier than I expected. Not extroadiarly heavy but on an overland build that adds up, I wish BuiltRight would list its weight on the site just as a heads up. Also for install,the demo video BuiltRight has on the site seems like the hardest way to do it if you're working alone. It's challenging to try and line everything up while holding all the pieces and rail as well as threading the bolts. What I found was much easier doing the second side was to do the panels individually and only remove the bolts that they use and reapply them before starting on the next panel. I don't even know that I can call these complaints but I saw other people taking about the instructions as well so I figured I'd add my two cents.
The quality of the panels is high. They are rugged. Only issue I have is the lack of clear instructions (w/photos), that explain how to mount them. I don't recall reading any documentation or watching a video that explained that the items you mount on the panels must be in place BEFORE you mount the panels. When the lady in the video says 15 minutes I almost choked. It took me 1.5 hours to get them aligned and mounted properly. RECOMMENDATION - Label each panel (A, B, C, D) so that it will remove all doubt as to what panel goes where. Might as well label (LA, LB, RA, RB) to denote left or right side. Just a thought. I'm glad I purchased these panels and am still trying to determine what I want to mount on the right panels BEFORE I mount the panels. ADDITIONALLY - It would make things a whole LOT easier if the panels could be mounted THEN flipped (hinged in some way) up to mount the brackets, etc. then lowered/latched into position. This would allow changes without unmounting everything and starting all over. GREAT PRODUCTS. GREAT SERVICE!!!! Thanks guys. Dane
Hey Dane, We greatly appreciate you taking the time to leave that feedback and a thoughtful review. Labeling of the panels is a great idea, one we will take under consideraiton. We hear you on a "hinged" feature on the panels but this would significantly increase costs and would also greatly complicate the manufacturing process. This exact challenge is what inspired the MOLLE nuts, check them out. https://builtrightind.com/products/molle-nuts-threaded-molle-pals-fastener?_pos=1&_sid=8d97c219e&_ss=r
Best steel molle panel on the market
The install didn't go as planned due to stripping out two of the torx bolts on my bed rails in the truck. That isn't BRI's problem, but it ended up taking a lot more time to remedy than planned. I would have appreciated detailed install instructions in the box. So now that that is out of the way - the product is probably hands down the best bed rail system on the market. I had a competitors prior to purchasing this set and it was poorly constructed and missing parts. I noticed they have since reduced their price drastically no doubt with BRI's entry into the market. Oddly enough I ended up on BRI's website as I was looking for another Rotopax mount and ended up spending way more money than I planned. Fortunately the investment was well worth it as the product is awesome. Since it slides in behind the bed rails you actually have a more flush finish with the bed wall in the truck. It just overall looks 100% better than the competitors I had in there. It actually attaches in three places on the cubby side of the truck (the competitors only attached by two bolts). The finish on the product is really nice as well, no jagged rough edges like on the competitors brand. Best of all it came with all the necessary items and hardware and was packaged exceptionally. BRI even throws in some free stoke. You can tell when a company cares about its product and its customers when you open the box and see how carefully everything is packaged. I have no doubt BRI will be gaining a larger following shortly when more folks figure out there are plenty of options when it comes to bedside molle panels. Shipped it out within the quoted shipping time too. No hassles here other than my torx fiasco. Only suggestion would be to include a brief paper installation instructions.
Fit great and work as advertised.
Installation was quick and easy, holds the gear I want in my truck all the time (water, fuel, shovel, axe, etc) where it's out of the way and easy to access, still leaves the bed open when needed.
