    Anybody taking bets on what avatar @SouthBoundSteve will be sporting after today's game? I'm thinking it might be orange and blue with a large "A" in it...…..

    Comes in handy when I have the grandkids. I've been known to crawl in a take a nap a time or two during hunting season. Good for tailgating too.

    Mine was bought used. Like new about 3 years ago. I've had kids, dogs, rock, lumber, camping gear, Xmas trees, you name it. Still looks good. Fir needles can be a small pain to vacuum but I always get most of them. The rug cleans easily and the are some good videos on BedRug website and YouTube.

    I was on the fence as the OP is but think for my use the OEM matt is best. Easier to keep clean IMO.

    I got my BedRug bed mat from Amazon in their Warehouse Deals section. It was like new (basically someone purchased and returned it) and was ~$50 less than new. With free shipping (and a free return if it was not as described) it was a good deal.

    I would think it depends on how you use your truck. I don't have experience with Bed Rugs, but I just can't imagine they would hold up well or be very convenient for a lot of my uses. Maybe I'm wrong though.

    I have a spray-in liner and a Dee Zee bed mat. Like the combo a lot so far, though admittedly I haven't hauled anything too serious in the bed of this truck yet. I wanted the spray-in liner for rust and general protection, and the bed mat for extra dent protection on the floor of the bed and to keep things from sliding around.

    Sometimes it's nice to be able to slide things into the bed, so the non-slip surface is a trade-off, but one I'm very much liking. In my last Tacoma with the polymer bed, I didn't bother with any protection in the bed. A couple times I put a big heavy digging bar back there and didn't tie it in because I wasn't used to needing to. When hitting the brake even lightly I was worried it was going to punch right through the bed it would slide so hard. This mat is the opposite of that. Yesterday I tossed some splitting axes, heavy steel wedges and some logging chain in the bed toward the back. That stuff never budged on the trip.

    I'm really impressed with the Dee Zee mat. Way thicker than I expected it to be, I like it a lot.

    I'm actually pleasantly surprised by how much I like the carpet. It's not real carpet, it's more like astroturf. It's recycled plastics that look and feel like carpet, and underneath is a closed cell foam so it doesn't take on any water.

    It's grooved to match the bed so you now have a flat surface, padded to protect the bed and items you toss back there, does a decent job at holding things in place too. Not near as much as a rubber bed mat but on the upside you can slide things on it more easily.

    There's a flap that connects the bed section to the tailgate, so like the week prior when my friend borrowed my truck for a load of gravel hundreds of little rocks don't get stuck between the tailgate and the bed.
    I haven't had it long enough to really tell on the durability or just how easy it is to clean, but I'm very happy with it so far.

    This particular model is the Husky Liners Ultrafiber bed liner. Husky is under the Truck Hero umbrella which also houses BedRug, and if you took the labels off each I doubt you'd be able to find a difference between the two.

    (Yes I know it’s a taco and not a Tundra, but you get the idea)

    Wait, you loaned a friend your truck to haul gravel? Now you, sir, are a true friend!

    Another vote for the bedrug, especially with a shell. Just a great all around option - comfortable yet durable.

    I vote bedrug. It offers great protection and if you have to crawl in your bed it’s easy on the knees.BD231CE4-3D20-4319-9070-5C09440C7141.jpg
