A ramp for this. A box for that. The complexities abound when it comes to loading, storing, and securing pickup truck cargo—not to mention the dangers! It's no doubt that cargo management is a big deal to work truck owners, because issues with load efficiency (volume and time used), load safety (for worker and for those nearby), and load security (theft and freeway flyaways) can make or break a whole business. Understanding that an ideal work and play cargo setup involves one tool that can serve multiple purposes, the guys at a Las Vegas start-up company named Shark Kage set out to design a multi-use ramp to be debuted at the 2013 SEMA Show. Claimed to be the first multipurpose ramp of its kind on the market and featuring a patent-pending design that offers six-in-one functionality, Kage rage hit SEMA hard, and the "transformer" ramp was awarded with SEMA's Runner-Up Exterior Accessory New Product award and Global Media award.
The 78-pound Shark Kage Sport Ramp Edition can be purchased from the website sharkkage.com for as low as $350 and includes the ramp, cargo nets, tie-down straps, an adhesive mounting template, hardware, and a two-year limited warranty. It is compatible with most pickup trucks, given that there are 48 inches between the wheelwells and the tailgate is at least 19.5 inches tall. Look below to see the six functions of the Shark Kage. Perhaps you'll come up with a personalized seventh to fit your needs.

Internet loading fall videos are bound to decrease with a loading ramp like the T61 aluminum Shark Kage, which is 47 inches wide, 92 inches long, and secured to the tailgate via the Shark Bite mounting plate. Loose ramps can slip out of place or shift during loading and unloading. The ramp can hold up to 1,500 pounds.

Cargo Box
Containing and locking large toolboxes, gear, and equipment is perhaps the most needed work truck asset. Whether you want to prevent items from slamming around the bed or ejecting during a collision, or you want to deter the opportunistic thief while you grab a burger, the cargo box is the perfect—shall we say—kage. Note: Not intended for live sharks.

Sometimes larger items necessitate a tailgate-down position, which is where the bed extender comes in handy. Two extension nets keep loose items from falling out of the back of the truck.

Kind of like a see-through tonneau cover, the cargo cover keeps items physically inside the truck bed, while keeping predators out. Now you can focus more on the cars ahead instead of the escaping trash can lid behind.

With the Work table function, you can ditch the added baggage of an additional folding table or stop fixing your equipment while crouched over in the gutter. It's like a durable tailgate surface area extension.

This option may seem superfluous, but it's nice to know it exists, and hey—it may be a better bet when the A/C goes out than scurrying under the truck like a dog. A closed tailgate and telescopic extension legs allow for the height.
