Works pretty well for an extra few hundred pounds. Fast and easy to install. I have a bed mat so sliding isn't an issue even without the rubber straps. I added 4 gallons of rv antifreeze to prevent hard freezing and don't notice any sloshing while driving or plowing. Wish they made it even bigger to completely fill the bed and get even more weight. But so far so good.

I recently installed the ShurTrax bladder into my Ram 1500 Laramie for winter driving in our local mountains (elevation 6500 feet). It has been a mild winter in the SoCAL mountains so I have not been challenged yet by weather and roads. I feel safe knowing that a water bladder is providing secure weight distributed evenly over the rear axel versus concrete blocks and other possible projectiles of weight. It has provided a smoother ride on highway road travel. Happy with purchase.

Easy install: just lay in truck. Problem arises when an attempting to fill; fill valve is nearly impossible to use. It is a really poorly executed design & I expect that it will not survive. All the positive aspects of this device are more than offset by the really poor fill valve; I can not find enough negative adjectives to adequately describe this really lousy design & as a result of this issue it is doubtful that I will buy anymore.

Nice product. Easy to set up except filling,I found it difficult to attach the filling device while the neck was recessed and I couldn't pull it out for easier filling.This part should be addressed. Other than that I found it to be a good product
