If you ever use your truck to haul cargo, a bedliner is an essential upgrade for your F-150. Bedliners help protect the floor and walls of your pickup’s bed, and they also improve traction, preventing your cargo from sliding around. You can get a spray-on bedliner, which is permanent but widely customizable, or a non-permanent drop-in bedliner, which is typically less expensive.
Cargo tie-downs open up a world of additional flexibility when added to your F-150. Some of the best are the Ford-exclusive BoxLink™ tie-down system, which features extra durable plates that fasten to reinforced areas of the bed.
Truck-bed tonneau covers are great upgrades for the F-150 for a few reasons. These easy-to-use covers protect your cargo from the wind, rain, snow, and other elements and are also useful in keeping your cargo out of sight. Many Tonneau covers are retractable and can lock for added security.
Additional Cargo Management
Sometimes, one open compartment in the bed isn’t the best option. If you need additional organization in your truck’s bed, Ford Bed Dividers split the storage area into smaller compartments to prevent cargo from sliding around or getting mixed up while you’re on the go.
Bigger, taller cargo boxes offer increased versatility and functionality, but they can be difficult to access. Adding an available Ford-exclusive Tailgate Step to your cargo box solves this dilemma entirely. When the tailgate is down, this intuitive step drops down so you can quickly and easily access the cargo box.
