I demolished an old shed a couple weeks ago and hauled all of that away, along with a truck load of gravel and cinder blocks. My bed is scratched to hell, but I don't really care, that's what it's meant for.

It can't be 2900 lbs. My double axel car hauler is only 2000 lbs and the heavy duty Bobcat trailer is 2200lbs.

yeah, but im sure you noticed also that everything slides in there! and i hate having to strap a bucket of paint just so it would not slide the bed mat helps with that i've been told, but im not sure of getting the Toyota one, i saw this mats in Sam's Club, the ones that are used in kitchens (with holes in them) they are 3'x3' and run for about $12-14 bucks each,and they are connectable, with a pair you got pretty much all the bed area covered, i have the short bed and i measured it

the long is 5'
wide (between the wheels) 3.5'

so you will have about 6" uncovered on the wheel well zone and all the long covered with a strip of 1'x3' spare...

still thinking though...

Also I have to throw in... is it just me or is it always the little trucks doing all the work. Any time I'm going down the road and seeing someone move with like 3 or 4 trucks all obviously together... the tacoma/ranger/s10... whatever it is... loaded to the twice the height of the cab with stuff and a trailer full of crap... the dodge ram 2500 will have like, a chair and a lamp *maybe.* I remember when I helped my dad move my ranger was loaded down... his dodge ram 1500 w/ hemi had like 8 fairly light boxes in it....

Yes the scratch in the bed don't matter because I was looking to spray some linex and hesite with the bed mat, i think the line x will last more than the bed mat, but I don't know if i need to remove the plastic texture on the up of the bed or spray into this, any idea?
But very nice pic of working taco
