I have an auto retracting aluminum bed cover kinda like this one so I dont put alot of huge things in it, like when i go shooting i want my guncases not to slide all over the damned place....

I agree. I have the stock extender in my 08 and it is annoying, usually. When I plug in my goosenecks, I have to slightly open the driver side of it b/c it blocks the 7 way plug. It is also in the the way for the tie downs....did I just convince myself that mine is for sale now? The only time I used it was when I had my 4wheeler in the bed (can't pull all the way up in the long bed b/c of my toolbox).

thats is the .1% reason I think they are good to have when a motorcycle or other keeps you from closing the tailgate

consider using the molded in bed notches and cutting a 2x whatever to fit that will cut down on how far stuff can move and then it can be stored length wise when needed
