Default Wheel chocks for truck bed

Any of you guys hauling in the truck bed got any recommendations? I'm currently just compressing my front shocks enough to secure the bike from moving but it seems kinda harsh on them. Want to get an idea of what's good and what to stay away from..

Motorcycle Trailer Restraint-Pit Bull Motorcycle Trailer Restraints

Best of the best. Secures via swingarm, and lets the bike ride on it's own suspension. Also works WITH/around the pitbull stands meaning you don't even need the kickstand (plus for race bikes) as you can still get it up on the stand with the restraint bolted to the swingarm.

The plate is low enough to roll over easily, and even place normal cargo on. Super win!

+1000 on that pitbull stand, I been using that system for a couple of years now. Best investment ever, fast and easy loading and off loading.

The pit bull is awesome, you really can't go wrong with it. It is so choice. If you have the means, I highly suggest picking one up. (anybody gonna catch that quote?)

But if you're likely me and riding/racing on a tight budget, I bought the $50 Harbor Freight chock and have been using it without fail for 3 years now. It's a permanent fixture in my bed, and hasn't given me any problems since I installed it. I used bigger washers on either side of the bed and put some of the Advanced Auto bedliner stuff in there to keep it from rusting.

I love my Baxley chock! Waaaaaay better than the Lockhart Phillips version.

The Harbor Freight chock also works great as long as it's bolted down. You can't just set it in the bed or on the ground like you can with a Baxley.

do you have to mount it backwards in the truckbed vs. a trailer? or will it work if it's mounted to the tailgate?

I've put a couple of them in truck beds, I wouldn't trust it in the tailgate. I'm not sure if the previous post was clear, but you don't have to mount it so you put the bike in backwards, it just goes under the bike and back to the axle instead of behind it. I'll see if I can dig up a picture or two..

That's what I meant - the bars are backwards... Not the bike itself. Gotcha. Makes more sense that way anyways.


(excuse typos, as this was a mobile posting)
