Hey guys! We noticed some chatter on the Tacoma forums about Bed Channel Stiffeners so we thought we would do a little write-up to help you decide if they are a product you need. We will also discuss the benefits of choosing stainless steel and why, when it comes to structural integrity, design matters!

Do you need bed stiffeners for your Tacoma? The short answer is that if you are sporting a roof top tent, bed rack, or any other heavy gear on your truck, you want the extra support from bed channel stiffeners. Composite beds have been known to crack, especially when extra weight is added to them. You can search forums and Google to see plenty of examples of this.

Why choose stainless steel?
https://www.thyssenkrupp-materials.co.uk/the-difference-between-stainless-steel-and-mild-steel.html

1. Corrosion resistance. Mild steel can rust when exposed to any type of moisture, even air vapor. If the powder coating on MILD steel stiffeners gets nicked through normal use, rust can begin to form. STAINLESS steel will not stain, rust, or tarnish.

2. Strength Stainless steel is alloyed with chromium, making it a hard alloy; this means that products manufactured with stainless steel are less susceptible to impact damage.

Why choose Rago Fabrication Bed Channel Stiffeners? Our product has been designed for functionality first. Every bend and bolt hole placement has been considered to provide the most support for your truck bed. We have chosen not to add extra holes or aesthetic differences to structurally critical points of our bed channel stiffeners so that they do the job they were intended for-helping prevent your bed from cracking. https://www.ragofabrication.com/products/2005-2015-toyota-tacoma-bed-channel-stiffeners-presale

Great write-up guys! They’ve been on my to-do list for a very long time and I still haven’t bothered to get them.

I have a set of these on my truck (paid full price to) and honestly have nothing bad to say about them. The fit and finish is stellar and what blew me away most was the overall product packaging. The instructions and way the while set was packed and shipped showed some serious thought beyond the standard offerings out there. Definitely worth a look if you are wanting bed stiffeners. 👍👍
