I wish I would have recessed it though (actually I would have added side pieces since my floor was incapsulated fiberglass.) I didn't want the weight.
Be aware with L-track the fasteners are specialized since the taper of the screws is different than a flat head machine screw. I just bought enough from the supplier. The fittings were easy to move and very solid.

We have a Cargo Glide 1500 in our 2020 Ford F-250 and it has worked flawlessly and has solved the getting in and out of the pick-up bed problem. I looked at every brand out in the market and based on feedback from others, bought the Cargo Glide 1200. Just make sure you don't exceed your payload weight. I purchased the unit that extends 75% out of the bed and it works great.

Thanks for your input.
I have used the Decked system since 2019. Itís more light weight than the wood or steel systems. I found it very durable and functional. The two slide outs carry heavy items and those not needed daily. I still carry items on top of the deck in tubs and totes. I used the wood systems in my patrol SUV and they were very heavy. My truck bed is covered with a heavy duty ARE camper shell and serves as my stores for our trips. Itís a great system.

We got the bed roller, tool boxes, bed cap, and headache rack/ladder rack as parts of the "Pickup Pack" from Highway Products. Click on "images" link below avatar for photos. Had them all six years and very pleased with them. Our bed roller is the 2,000 lb capacity, although they make a heavier one.

Yes, I have advice. Donít waste your money! It adds A LOT of weight, not useable when attached, reduced storage volume. The best answer to truck bed storage is a cap with openable side ďwindow doorsĒ. You can easily reach most everything in the bed.

in a work truck with a are commercial steel topper wuth the side toolboxes i had a cargoslide in it, it pulled a fabricated box in sections out, there was a little wasted space on the sides, but it was a dedicated purpose rig (land survey gear)

in the private truck i have a cargoglide 2200xl, under a american work cover jr rolling tonneau.
on the sides i have the bilt rite panels to try and reclaim the wasted space.
the cargoglide i have has the gooseneck cutout,
granted it is the 75% pullout model, and i give up about 2 to 3 inches of bed space, its a fair trade off for me.
it barely fits under the cannister roll of the cover. about 1/4" clearance.

now the 2019 f 350 with the 20" wheels is tall, so i did not want to crawl up inthere to use the truck.
but still wanted secure dry storage and ability to use my truck as a truck, yes i give up about 10" of length with the roll cover, another compromise i can live with.

I have three 2021 heavy duty cardboard boxes. Lightweight. Slide easily on the truck bed. When/if they get too beat up Iíll probably upgrade to the 2022 model.

Love our BedSlide

We have a BedSlide and I love it, use it quite a lot the 8-9 months we are not traveling, and it will be the first upgrade to any truck I buy in the future. Really nice not to have to get up on the tailgate or crawl into the bed to retrieve stuff, just slide it out and everything is easy to access. Very useful when I had to haul a load of pavers.

Yes it cuts into Payload, and in fact the cooler in the photo goes into the Airstream when traveling if full (surprisingly, our Canyon actually has better payload capacity than many of the new F150 configurations). Of course if you have a K2500 or F250 then the weight is a non-issue. Nice thing regarding payload is you can put the heaviest items closest to the front of the bed, which might be the opposite of what you would do when packing a bed without a slide.
