    Any suggestions of where to shop for a nice, reasonably thick rubber mat that is cut to fit the contours of the 6' bed of my 2006 Access Cab? I know I will pay more for the precision cut than the "universal" mat, but the fit will be so much better it's worth the extra expense. Thanks, Ron...

    BubbaW.: Agree! That mat fits nicely in Brian's truck. I like. Any idea what it cost? Ron...

    How does the bed mat work with the camper?

    The rubber helps things from shifting around re: camper. I was going to do a line-x deal but decided on the mat instead.

    I bought this one for my 2001, fits perfectly and after 5 years ago or so, it still looks as new with no shrinking, cracking or shifting around. It does stink like a tire for awhile, so if it's under a camper shell that might be of concern. Great protection and no slip cargo now. I paid about $100.00 I think when I bought mine. Still happy with it.

    Yep, thats the one I got. Very happy with it, even more so at that price with free shipping. I think it's got a little room around the wheel wells to accommodate the small differences in bed dimensions of both ACs and DCs. I'd recommend you snatch one while they're still available, I'm sure you won't regret it!

    Tempted to grab one now, been thinking hard about it now I've got the tri-fold over the bed. I thought about getting something to slide under the blown plastic bedliner, but this looks too thick, and It'd save my damn knees.

    I have a Westin rubber mat in my 2012 crewmax and really like it. Is extremely heavy duty.

    Thanks to all the responders! Westin Rubber it is! On my way to Amazon.com now to see if they have any left after these great reviews. Lol. Ron..

    Just ordered one as well! Hope it's heavy enough to stay put at highway speeds. Going to use it over the factory plastic Bedliner insert.

    One moment where the 8’ bed really gets the shortest straw.

    Could be worse. You could have a DC.

    I've never had any issues with my Westin rubber bed mat even before I put the Truxedo Lo-Pro QT tonneau cover on.

    Update: Ordered the black rubber Westin bed bat for my 2006 access cab from Amazon and it was delivered to me in So. Cal. 3 days later. I see from the paperwork that it came from Kentucky, so I'm happy with the quick delivery. It's in the truck now, fitting like it should, and I've got it sitting in the truck soaking up some sun rays so it will relax. It looks great in the truck and I want to thank everyone for the Westin recommendation! Ron...

    Update#2: I ordered and received mine too. I'm impressed with the quality of it. It's not just a one-size-fits-all mold that's cut to fit a Tundra. It's actually molded with a raised edge around the entire perimeter. The back side has thousands of "nipples" for lack of a better word that help grip the uneven bed floor, and it's got a slightly tacky/rubbery feel so items tend to stay put. It's also much thicker than the old one I took out.

    I have a Toyota bed liner so I had to trim the mat all the way around the entire edge in order for it to fit. But that's on me, the mat isn't designed to fit inside the bed liner, it's designed to fit on the floor of the bed. I imagine if I didn't have the bed liner the fit would have been perfect. Is that the case @FirstGenTundra1867 ?

    I also just received my Westin bed mat for my 2001 Access Cab. It's a thick, heavy duty, quality product. It fits great and best of all, right at $100 all in from Amazon.

    The little nubs on the back side, also allow the truck bed dry out under the mat, after it gets wet from rain etc.
