What Is a Utility Bed for a Pickup Truck?

A utility bed for a pickup truck includes a cargo unit for tools and utilities needed on job sites or for personal use. The rectangular unit hooks onto the truck bed closest to the cab of the truck and allows easy access to cargo items.

Utility beds can also include accessories known as a utility track system that allows truck owners to slide cargo units closer to the side of the truck or stack and organize utility boxes on top of one another. Utility beds are ideal for contractors and carpenters hauling equipment to job sites, allowing easy access to a variety of tools.
