Love the idea though!!
Same here... the coroplast sheeting is attached to some sort of bracket that hangs down below the frame, so no direct access to the frame itself.

Interesting. I was thinkin....

The Mor-Ryde Suspension (and others) has a cross bar that goes across from one frame rail to the opposite frame rail (just behind the axles). What if you put one of these cargo bars from say the base/foot of the right-rear scissor jack up to the corner where that cross bar intersects the frame on the left. And then add a second cargo bar from the foot of the left scissor jack up across to where the right scissor jack attaches to the frame.

Basically, its one cargo bar between the 2 scissor jacks at rear AND one cargo bar at an angle from a rear scissor jack up to the frame cross bar.

I'm sure there are a few ways to do it that would work fine. I'll post a few better pics shortly

Don't the braces that go in between the wheels stop the movement?

They do, but rubber is soft and will move regardless how tight the chocks are. Also, rubber changes with temperature so that is also a factor .

I am headed to Harbor Freight tomorrow to pick up a couple of these and try this out. Great Tip! I already have one in the bed of the pickup so I may only have to get 3 more.
