Hey everyone - just decided to go with a 2nd gen after a lot of looking around, but my one concern is the bed. I have a '86 4x4 with the plastic bedliner and it works great. The 2nd gen Tacomas have this weird fiberglass(?) bedliner thing with all sorts of bells and whistles. It looks complex, not very durable, and kinda cheap/cheesy.
First - what are you guys' impressions of the bed materials and functionality in the 2nd gens? Anyone on here have an older 2nd gen that they've really used to haul dirt, limbs, rocks, metal, etc....and the bed is still ok? Those little sliding adjustable tie down hooks look like trouble waiting to happen, but maybe I'm wrong...
Second - are there any good options for "upgrading" or modifying the bed to be more durable/functional?
Thanks for the help!
