    I think you can get them at pepboys still. If not they can order them. Just know that these aren't strong and WILL NOT keep any cargo in the truck.

    On a truck, especially the little imports, they keep the sides of the bed from spreading outwards.

    This depends on whose net you get, and how you mount it. They can keep cargo in if you don't exceed the load limit of the net or it's mounts.
