I swear to God that Toyota is using it for their beds now. I was driving behind a new Tundra Crew Cab Long bed yesterday, and that bed was flexing and moving like someone was wringing out a washcloth. There was a Chevy next to him that wasn't moving an inch. Two cheers for cost savings!!!

Wonder if Consumer Report and Truck Trend rated the Tundra with or without the Knee and Back pad.

That's basically what happened in a recent truck comparison in a 4x4 magazine. The Tundra frame flexed so much that the bed dug into the rear of the cab. POS!!!
