I was planning to do the side of the bed as well but I haven't found any pics showing how those bolts are secured so that project is on standby.
I bought the wheel chocks here:
I did have to cut down the top edge so it would fit...
That’s an old Kestrel but point being I wouldn’t really want two $8k (or more) bikes on the bed rails, tail gate or under the tonneau cover while traveling. Stooping to eat or overnight at a hotel opens up the real possibility of getting them stolen in less than a minute.
I was hoping to simply remove the two lower rear seats to allow more room on trips for two $$ bicycles etc but it seems there is a wire harness (for rear seat heaters?) that is not a simple disconnect.
Anyone thinking along these lines?
You'll need something to place the wheel a bit back from the tonneau cover/front bed of the truck. My cover doesn't close all the way (normal ?) and the L track and chock create about 1 to 1.5" of space so the wheel doesn't interfere with the closed tonneau cover.
Loaded my TE300 and my 500 KTM in the Rivian this weekend.
I had previously installed the L track, wheel chocks and additional tie down rings.
