Default Cargo Bar or other solutions for groceries?

Looking for solutions to prevent groceries from flying around the back of my 2012 Laramie Limited. I've tried some bins but they slide around as well. Looking to keep my groceries close to the tailgate as I can't jump in and out of the truck bed. I have a spray-in liner and a BakFlip G2 tonneau cover so any solution needs to work with that. Thanks.

Get yourself a bed extender, when it's tucked away it will keep everything close to the tailgate.

Bought a cargo bar for my '04 about 5 years ago. Has been in the elements the entire time, still works and going strong, though now I have a Bak Flip HD on my '11. Bought it at Home Depot in the hardware section where all the tie downs are located, about $20 bucks, best $20 I have ever spent. I also used it as an extra pair of hands while hanging my kitchen cabs and microwave lol.

I made a couple of top brackets to go with the lower loops at the rear of the bed, then attached a trunk cargo net from a Chrysler 300. I used quick-disconnect carbiner clips so I can remove it and store it behind the seat if necessary. You can find these nets new on e-bAy. The Chrysler 300 fits pretty good.

I concur with the cargo bar. I bought one shortly after purchasing my '10 brand new. Best 20-30 buck s I have spent on the truck. Keeps the wife happy about not having to put everything back in the bags. Keeps it out of the trunk of my Acura and away from my sound system as well, LOL!

I have the Hitch Mate and find it to be very useful.

I keep it simple and just use a left over 2x8 that fits neatly in the bed knockouts about 1 foot back from the gate. I also put some screw eyes in the board so that I can bungee things like gas cans to it so they won't slid side to side.

Unlike the cargo bars, it doesn't put additional strain on the sidewalls of the bed and if I don't want to use it it takes up very little room in the bed when I lie it flat.

Bins work for me. They don't slide around on me but I have a rubber bed mat. Makes it easier to carry inside as well.
