Loading your pickup bed from the side, either by convenience or out of necessity, may be uneventful…until that cargo slips and comes crashing down onto the top of the bed side. Now you’re faced with hundreds, maybe thousands of dollars in paint and body work. But it doesn’t have to be this way. You can prevent this kind of damage and gain style and functionality at the same time, with a set of truck bed side rails.

Nothing can make a nice pickup look like an old beater work truck faster than bed sides that are scratched up and dented. Our truck bed side rails are relatively inexpensive compared with labor and materials cost at a body shop, and most take only a few minutes to install, so for a little time and not a lot of money, your truck is protected. But along with protection, you also gain tie down points from which to secure cargo, and an appearance upgrade.

We offer both universal and application specific bed side rails. Universal rails require some drilling, while rails designed for the vehicle usually install in the stake pockets with captive fasteners, and no modifications to your truck are required. Most of our side rails are oval or round tubes, and available in your choice of chrome plated steel, black powder coated steel, or polished stainless steel. Some bed side rails are available in lengths to accommodate cross bed tool boxes, and you can get rails with LED lights mounted in the end that can be set up to operate with brake lights, running lights, and turn signals.

Whether your truck hauls cargo occasionally or if you load the bed on a regular basis, truck bed side rails will be a handy addition. Gear that is unsecured or not properly secured in the bed can become damaged or even damage the bed. Bed side rails provide a wide range of anchor points for tying down cargo. Instead of anchor points that may only be at the front of rear of the bed, bed side rails allow you to secure your gear anywhere along the length of the rail. You can keep even odd-shaped items in their place for safe transport.

But even if you never use your truck bed for hauling, you’ll want to have bed side rails just for their looks. They provide an eye-catching focal point that will make the profile of your truck more interesting, and cover up the stake holes for a cleaner look. Truck bed side rails look great by themselves but they’re also the perfect accompaniment for other tubular accessories like side steps, grille guards, and bull bars. The range of finishes available for bed side rails also means you can perfectly match your other accessories, for a complete look that will really make your rig unique.

Good Looking Side Rails
I like the looks of the rails on my truck and the usefulness in securing loads. I was somewhat disappointed when I mounted the rails and the raised, black bar on the front of the rail was not on my unit. This leaves the mounting bolt exposed on each side rail. This caused the tool box to be mounted approximately 2 inches further to the rear of the truck bed than normal.
