Why would you want to do that? The composite bed is tough as hell. If you need to prevent stuff from sliding around, get a bed mat. Toyota has a good one for about $80 and others are available cheaper than that.

Thanks for the reply but!!!

I am slowly turning it into a show truck and need to have the bed color match the truck color. Can the be liner that is in it be removed? I've gotten so many different answers, I don't know where to turn.
Thanks for your help and suggestions

It's not a liner. The composite material you see is actually the bed itself. Crawl underneath you truck and you'll see what we mean.

You can Rhino-line just about anything. As for the do-it-yourself stuff, I've had a lot of success with Durabak. Easy to apply and comes in many UV-resistant colors.

If you're just looking to keep things from sliding around, buy the Toyota bed mat.

No worries. Like I said, crawl under your truck and you'll see what we're talking about.

Since most people install some sort of bedliner in pickups to keep the paint from wearing away and the metal from rusting, Toyota did away with the metal all together. What you see is what you get -- you have a plastic truck bed. (not really plastic, but you get the idea) The fender skins are the only metal back there.

I guess the real question is...what's your question? Will a spray-in/roll-on bedliner stick? Probably, if you scuff up the bed with 40-grit sandpaper first. Most of those products are meant to protect the metal and keep it from rusting, so realize that you'll be rust-proofing something that already can't rust.

If you're doing it for looks, it's your call. If you're doing it to protect the bed, it's a lot of effort for a net-zero gain. If you're tired of stuff sliding around in the bed, the Toyota bed mat is the fastest, cheapest, and easiest route to take.

I'm thinking of switching to synthetic. Is this a good idea?

Then by all means, have at it and post pictures of the finished product!

I noticed you don't have any pictures posted in your gallery. Get some up there so we can follow the progress from stock to show-ready!

And keep your sarcasm detector turned on when cruising these boards. We're really not mean or impatient -- you may just catch us in a snarky mood from time to time.

I think you got the answer. That's not a bed LINER. That's the BED. It's plastic all the way to the frame. Crawl under your truck to verify.

That being said, sure you could put a spray-on liner on it. But aesthetics is the only reason. You might also want to look into a good paint that works on plastics if it's just looks your after.

Yeah I agree if it's just looks your after, just get a good plastic paint. Make sure you prep the plastic good though.
