My pickup is too small to carry plywood flat. I decided to build a platform to rise above the wheel wells. This is the finished project. I know it’s not a “woodworking” project, but it helps me get the sheetgoods home. It’s a simple 2×4 frame with eye-bolts for bungie cords to hold down the sheets. The cross member in the middle locks the whole unit into the truck bed fitting into one of the pre-formed slots in the liner. I did use half-lap joints for the board crossing the unit towards the front of the bed so the sheets can ride flat. I have used it once so far and it works perfectly. Amazingly helpful.
