A.R.E. continues to expand its truck accessory offerings with the new SuperNet - a flexible cargo net that can be used in the bed of most any pickup truck to secure gear.

The SuperNet features an adjustable net configuration that can be modified four different ways to serve the specific needs of any user. The product can be used in a variety of ways: as a truck bed divider to separate cargo, as a net to secure groceries and camping equipment, or it can be moved to the side of the truck bed to discretely hold gas cans, flashlights and other emergency equipment.

"Having spent nearly 40 years manufacturing truck lids, we understand enthusiasts want as much utility from their trucks as possible - for both work and play - with add-on accessories," said Bryan Baker, director of marketing, A.R.E. "The durable SuperNet is a great product to enhance your truck and conveniently store gear out of the way so your truck bed can be used more efficiently."

A.R.E.'s SuperNet is easy to install and requires no tools. The SuperNet secures to the truck bed via two mounting brackets attached to the bedrails. Visit for a list of authorized A.R.E. dealers.

A.R.E. has been a leading manufacturer of fiberglass truck caps and hard tonneau covers for the past 38 years, with more than 600 employees at its ISO-9001:2000-certified manufacturing facilities and a network of more than 600 independent authorized dealers.
