Truck Bike Carriers?

Dont know if this is the right word for it but, I have a truck which I can just throw my bike in the back. But that is what I am trying not to do. I want to be able to put my bike in the back and not have to worry about it rolling around in the bed. I have seen a few different options, one is a clamp which goes along the sides of the bed with no drilling and has the pin to lock the front wheel in. second theres a pole that has 2 pins for two bikes that is retractable which goes in the bed side to side. option 3 is a tailgate pad which you hang the front wheel over the tailgate and has velcro to hold down your frame to the mat and the mat is strapped to the tailgate. any other options? Thanks

Look what I did, low cost but keeps the bike in place very well.

My buddy puts a towel over the tailgate and then turns the front wheel 90 degrees and puts it on the outside of the tailgate with the bike in the bed. I have no personal experience with it, but it seems to work pretty well.
