cargo management ideas sought (rear section)

Anyone know of any systems that one can use in the cargo area of a D90 or D110 (will be a 110) that one can get enough strength out of to use a cargo net but "not" drill holes.

Thinking velcro...or perhaps a drop in platic plate that has holes, etc....gravity keeping the whole down....

For holding moderate items: food, luggage (duffels and such), fishing gear, internal frame packs....etc.


Anyway, also thinking of L track, and the mud uk single screw D type rings....


Just wanted to see and hear what people do to the back of their trucks to make things work for them.

Did do a search and really did not see too much. I am not interested in the major shelf/drawer projects (those are cool, just overkill for my needs).

TIA.

The DII tiedowns are nice, there are a few other options. Id like a drawer that was level with the wheel wells and a troy box. there is a plenty of space in a D90 but you cant bring your friends.

Thanks guys. Going with the advice given and will likely upgrade to a L-rail system in the future if needed.

The pictures attached (via the internet) are pretty much where I'll be...I have jump seats (4) in the back.

I'd never rely on gravity to hold stuff in place. Securing it is far better.

I have been thinking about using Mac's versa tie system. You would have to drill holes but might be worth looking at.

Couple of videos on the following link
