    1. I got an SUV so my dogs would go in that area. Thus the cargo management system would have to be under the surface of the cargo area. I hardly put anything back there other than my dogs. Even the groceries go one the backseat floor.

    2. A safety harness for dogs, or something safe for them. That would be taylored to my needs

    3. 35-40

    1. I have never seen a cargo management system that I liked. I imagine the perfect one is similar to a net, or compartment system, but it is removable, and washable. I like the safety space for pets mentioned above.

    2. I think one tailored to my vehicle to maximize space would be best

    3. 20-30yrs

    I'd pay about 100 dollars for a good one, but I don't want a huge thing that eats up cargo space, probably twice as much if a dog safety area for my lab was used, but i don't know if thats even possible.

    I'd pay up to $1,000 for one that could do it all. Hell Land Rover gets that anyway.

    How much would I spend? Well, I wouldn't want one in the first place as I said, but if there was one that was absolutely suited to everything I needed... $50 maybe.

    1) A small tool box, a bottle jack, jumper cables, spare belt, a fire extinguisher, 2 quarts of oil (engine, trans), rags, roll of toilet paper, poncho, gloves, safety reflectors, flashlight, hatchet, camp shovel.

    2) Tailored organizer that doesn't block or intrude into a flat cargo floor. Or a net to keep groceries in place.

    3) 20-30. SUV owner, Truck owner.

    4) $100. But it should be in the design of the vehicle.

    My old Caprice wagon had lots of cubbies, hiding places, and a full-size spare; new SUVs have cupholders, leather, and non-useable mini-spares.

    I agree with those items to be kept in the truck as I keep most of those with me now when I drive. Currently I keep these things in the bed-rail cubby holes that are on the Avalanche now. These were a great idea! Please don't model any new features after the new Honda Ridgeline. That thing is a travesty to trucks everywhere IMO. Yes, it has a nice under-bed compartment, but it's got a spare tire the size that a wheelbarrow would use. I would recomment implementing bed rail cubbies. I don't care what it costs, if it is good engineering, I'll respect that and pay for it. Age bracket 50-55.

    1. something for tools, lockable storage, closed bin for items you dont want to spread mud/dirt throughout rest of car.

    2. offer different kinds in an interchangeable area.

    3. 16-20

    4. about 100 bucks

    From an engineering standpoint, to make as universal as possible, what I propose is a modular compartments in which you can be add/remove/replace pieces.

    Each compartment will be shaped to satisfy a given function.

    Customers than like a puzzle can purchase the ones that fit their lifestyle.
    I may need when grocery + book + bottle + whatever

    I have a design that I can show you, a complete bed system. I'll have to put it to paper and post it up for ya. Storage bins, movable (from either side) internal gate, as well as a way to make use of the liftgate in the down position expanding the size of the bed.

    Let me know if ya want to see it.

    the trunk on the ridgeline isnt very good what if you r camping and your beds full of stuff then you forgot somthing in the trunk (or the spare tire) youll hafta get everything out of the bed then get it and put it all back what a waste of time for me, but ill say make storage compartmants like the avalanche and escalade for an extra 50-100$$$
