    I need some ideas for this year because I am going to be carrying a snowblower. In years past I have just placed a 2X10 in the slots in the bed and loaded it up with sand bags. This wont work this ear because the blower needs to go in and out at times. Any ideas???

    I would make a layer on the bottom of the bed of sand bags, or brick..Then cover with a piece of plywood..You could use it like the floor, only a little higher

    You could use patio stones. If you put 4-24"x24" and 2-30"x24" in the bed of the truck they would fill it perfectly. Then if you need to remove them there are only 6 pcs. to take out. They are thin and won't take up much room. Then you can put the blower on top.
