Bed Dividers/Organizers

Does anybody have any experience with bed dividers? Any recommendations? I'm looking for something a little more than a 2X4 across the bed to help keep my groceries and other products from sliding around the bed. And something that doesn't need to be drilled or screwed in and can be easily removed. Help me out boys!

If your not sure what I'm talking about it looks something like this:

it appears you have already found the solution.

but. if you were looking for something else.

These are sold at pepboys and autozone. you could get two of these for cheaper than that other one i imagine. if you wanted a net, you could make one, or use a tarp or something and wrap it around the two poles. just an alternative idea.

Yeah, I realized that after I posted it. Just looking to see if anybody has any experience with particular brands or models.

I would build and fabricate my own with treated lumbar and then paint it to match the bed liner.

Well i've helped with a few friend's custom built bed dividers before, helped with a half divider and a 2/3 divider, its not too much hard work, but laying the full assembly in the bed is the hardest part with limited people and worrying about slipping and it hitting the paint.

I don't know the slots on the new bodystyle.
On the '97-'03 I experimented and found that using (2) 2x6s, stacked worked best.
A 2x4 or even two of them stacked only provided a 7 inch wall.
A single 2x8 was too hard to work into the slots and only provided the same wall height.

Using two 2x6s:
Easy to put in/take out plus an eleven inch wall as end result.
