    Has anyone sprayed or rolled in any type of bed liner on the plastic bed? The reason I'm asking, everything slides all around my bed, which just bugs me. I was thinking about roughing up (at least) the bottom and rolling in some type of bed lining to give the bed some traction/grip. Thinking about doing it myself as it wouldn't need to be as thick as say Linex has to be on an metal bed in order to protect it.

    Has anyone done this? If so, how did it work out?

    spend less than $50 and buy a rubber mat from tractor supply or home depot and trim it to fit. or try searching around on here and find someone selling their bed mat.

    Thanks!

    Did you do the whole bed or just the bottom?

    Has it held up well?

    I do not want a bed mat or bed rug, but I do understand the recommendation. I don't like the look of them and I do like the look of a sprayed/rolled bed liner. I already know what I want. What I really needed was can the material successfully be applied. If so, is had it been durable.

    If this hasn't been asked in a while, it's been a long while. I did a search using "bedliner" and "bed lining" but got nothing. I'm sure they're out there and I am sure I am searching wrong in some form or fashion, but I could not find anything.

    Thanks for all the help.

    Spray liners don't stick as effectively due to our plastic beds, rubber mat or bedrug is the only guaranteed option

    its been several months and still looks new, most people that see my bed think its a spray on liner.

    some people say they have trouble down the road. ill take my chances for only 90 bucks.
