My comments below in red

I was going to get it...but then I realized that

1. It didn't come with the 'fence' attachment so in total you're gonna be spending >$300 on it.

2. There are already nice tie downs in the trunk and do I really need to adjust those by a few inches?

3. It interferes with the tailgate table —it does not; I have the table. In fact, it saves you from having to drill to install the table

4. it makes it so you cant put a full size mat in. Looks bad with just a small mat in the middle. —doesn’t look bad one bit. Actually, the aluminum rails and chrome, solid metal tie downs look and feel well-finished and very high-end

No regrets, but I did find, when I wanted a more secure trunk enclosure, some of those setups interfere a bit with the floor TRMS. So, if you're looking to add an EZTrunk, you'll lose some flexibility with the TRMS (if you don't modify the installation).

I'm currently bolting a lockable Plano box to the TRMS, when I want to secure something that doesn't fit in the center console or glovebox. But it still looks a little too inviting to opportunistic thieves, because it doesn't look bolted in, just looks like a pad-locked box sitting there waiting to be thieved.

So, I ordered a SquadBox. It doesn't look like it blocks any part of the TRMS, especially at the front of the rails, where you drop things in, so it remains easy to swap in-and-out things like the telescoping rail, D-rings, or a bike rack floor track.

Wow, that Squadbox looks great. You should post a new topic about it when you get it and install.

Do they explicitly say that it fits the Trail Rails? Seems like at least one attachment point it keyed to a regular D-ring.
