I have a 2015 Pro 4x. I recently got a pretty nice 30qt Pelican Cooler, and I intend for it to not walk off on me when it's in the back of the truck.

My truck has the tracks. But I need something I can run a steel cable through. The cleats that run in the tracks, are too easy removable if someone has time to really look at them and figure out how they work. Any suggestions? I'm not really the type to just blindly drill into a $30k truck

Edit : I don't plan on leaving the cooler unattended in the back of the truck for long. If I have to go indoors for a long time away from home, I'll probably move the cooler into the truck cab while I go grocery shopping, etc. This is preventing quick grabs while in a gas station, burger king, etc.

You could do what I did to secure my bicycle with my U lock.

I used two large eye bolts, a pair of unistrut nuts on the backside, square unistrut washers on the outside and a nut. You thread regular nut all the way up the eyebolt, then add the square washer and then spin the unistrut nut on. Slip the unistrut nut in to the track and then thread the eyebolt until it bottoms out on the back of the track but make sure the unistrut not is tight to the inside track. Then snug the square washer and the nut against the rail. Put the second one right next to it. With your lock through both eyes, you cannot spin either one out.



These are what sits behind the square washer.

How about the two sets of holes at the tailgate end of the bed sides? They likely have a small press-fit plug that could be removed to expose the tapped holes. I'm not sure exactly on the pitch of these threads (anyone care to share?) but you could make a bracket to work with those and run a locked cable from that to your cooler or whatever else you want to lock down. I think there even is an OEM bracket out there than can be found on ebay for less than $20 but custom may suit your needs a bit better.
