I keep my bungees in the latch able box in the side of the bed. I've never had any stolen. The tacomas kick ass. I just went and looked in mine. I also have a hunting knife, wool hat, and led head lamp that fits on a baseball cap ( no baseball cap tho, will have to look into this).
I've "saved" lots of people at our tailgates with the first aid kit, duct tape, and zip ties. U never know.
