    Just got my 2017 SR5 on Friday and had to run beer to and from a festival. The jockey-boxes were sliding all over the bed and banging around. Consequently, I am in the market for a bed mat pronto!

    Any suggestions on OEM vs. aftermarket bed mats?

    I have the OEM bed mat and I really like it. I'd buy it again.

    Mine came with a crudely cut aftermarket "one size fits all" type. It works for me.

    Don't know what the price difference is but I think @Unchained 5150 has a hook for them. I dunno if it's still going on or not.

    Thanks!

    I have one question: it looks like the mat wraps around the rears of the wheel arches, but not the fronts. This lead me to believe there could be wear issues on the uncovered portions of the bed at the fronts of the arches. Aftermarket mats wrap around front and back. Is the OEM picture accurate?

    How much does the OEM bed mat weigh? Does it reduce your payload by a decent amount.

    Not bad I guess, does it slide around or flop with wind?

    Your "thinking" about the long bed configuration, but "looking" at the short bed mat. Short bed arches are at the front of the bed, so there is no front part of the arch to wrap around.

    Mine is a short bed. They make two different one. One for the long bed and one for the short bed. I love it. I hated things sliding around. With this, nothing moves.
