MISSOULA – Bob Ward’s, Montana’s sports and outdoor resource, is proud to be the first in the nation to feature DECKED systems. A live demo of the brand new DECKED system will take place at Bob Ward’s in Missoula on Friday, November 22 and Saturday, November 23. Lance Miller, founder and VP of Sales for DECKED will be on hand to show off the new system.

So what is DECKED?

“An Australian living in Sun Valley, ID comes up with an idea for a product, finds an investor, develops it, has a Detroit company design it, and then has an Ohio factory produce it. Completely USA made, and according to Lance, Bob Ward’s is getting the very first shipment of these in before anyone else in the country,” says Chad Ward, Bob Ward’s President, when asked to sum up DECKED.

DECKED is an innovative full-sized truck bed storage system that incorporates two bed-length drawers that roll out to provide easy access to tools, equipment and additional gear. The deck of the storage system is built from 100% recycled high-density polyethylene co-molded to a steel sub frame providing a 2,000 lbs. load capacity. The drawers can hold up to 200 lbs. each and are lockable to provide secure storage. Each drawer can hold tools, parts and supplies, sporting goods, or just about anything that is normally stored in a truck bed. The system is weatherproof and the deck can be configured to accommodate tie downs or rack systems. The DECKED system can be mounted in nearly every full size pickup truck made since the late 1990s, is easy to install, and mounts to the truck bed’s existing tie downs with no drilling required.
