Quick update on the Rola organizer. Just went to the grocery store and loaded up the organizer. The biggest heaviest item was a gallon of milk. I took a route home with lots of highway and city driving. Lots of turns, hills, and bumps. I drove in SCCA mode , blasting through turns, hard braking, etc.. Got home and the Rola was exactly where I left it, and not one thing was out of place or rolling around the bed. Just keeping the milk from overturning paid for itself to me.

The true test will be after you install your supercharger and do a "little spirited driving". Maybe even a couple trips up to Bandy. If everything is still in place then you got a pretty secure system.

I'm hopeful to now be able to put groceries in the back in (1) location and arrive home that way lol.


F.O.F

Got a Sunferno bar. Very easy to ratchet and release. However I need longer arms to hold both sides in place until the ratcheting. A common problem with all of them I'd assume. But it claims to hold up to 220 lbs. Might get a subdivider for it as well. The picture shows a slight bow in the bar. It you crank it really tight it'll do that. But I'd rather the bar bend than deform my bed. I found you don't have to make it very tight at all and it holds just as well.

The organizer is a Rola. It's got rigid walls and three fully adjustable dividers that attach top and bottom with wide Velcro strips. Also folds flat when not in use. I got it because of the height. It'll slide right under the tonneau canister. Without the dividers in there. I got the 38", but they make a 25" as well. One of each would cover the entire bed width. But the plans for it are to be under the canister, and to hold jumper cables, tools, flashlight, tie downs, etc.. Stuff I don't need to access all the time. The picture shows it in grocery mode. I'm gonna buy another, or something else for that duty.

Both seem to be of good quality. Only time will tell if they'll hold up. But they were reasonably priced.

Looks good. I have a bar, need to get the organizer now. By the way those two bed lights in the picture.... are they factory? My 2015 does not have them. If there after market ones, where can I purchase them.

Made 4 passes Wed at Bandi, and they were in there. Of course no groceries. However acceleration isn't going to be a problem with it against the tailgate. When I move it under the tonneau canister that could change, well maybe with boost. It'll have ~1.5" clearance, so the canister will prevent it from tipping over. I already planned to bungee it to the front loops on both sides.

I think cornering, especially with the Ram's high COG would be the only worry. When it's in grocery mode against the tailgate anyways. But I normally don't drive like a manic on grocery runs. So my extreme cornering yesterday is probably the worst it'll ever see.
