    Securing bike in truck bed

    Just got my first pickup truck. Nissan Frontier NISMO with "Utilitrac" in the bedliner. I am wondering how I can secure 2 or more bikes in the truck bed. Anybody have experience using the "Utilitrac" feature. Pictures would be nice. Thanks.

    make a wood box with 2x6's that fits snugly between the wheel wheels and the back of cab. then add, inside the box, a few rows of (tires wide) and presto there is your rack....just get some tie downs

    Fork Blocks.
    You mount them to your bed rails and it works just like a roof rack. Take the front tire off and clamp your forks onto the fork block. Then you can order a locking axel pin so that your bike will stay in your bed and not disappear.

    Two Worlds: Tail Gators. They're from sport works, very cheap, and very effective. If I had pickup truck like yours, I would buy them once I got the money. Tie downs work and so forth, but I've always though that if you invest a lot into your bike, you should invest money to keep them safe on the road.

    But when I say that I do realize that I am running a not so great bike rack myself
