Best solution for pickups!

I've used the Insta-Gator with either front or rear wheel locked in, behind or in front of the fork. Bumpy roads are no issue. I hope spares will be available for this for a long time as successful as the design is. However I plan to keep some spare molded straps as sun exposure and ratchet tension will most likely deteriorate them over time. Some of the bolt hardware is rusting in the Guam humidity but I try to store it in climate controlled rooms when not on the truck.

If you're over 6'2 with a 60cm frame and own a normal Dodge Ram your bike won't fit straight in you bed. Thanks for that information Thule. Waste of $200
