    I have a 2010 DC, and would like to purchase a bed mat. I also have a bed extender installed that I use quite frequently. My question is, can I have a bed mat and bed extender. If you are not familiar with a bed extender, when the tail gate is closed and the extender is not in use, the least little thing under the bed extender will cause the tailgate to not close. So I'm wondering will the bed mat cause the extender to not close all the way down, therefore cause the tailgate to not be able to completely close?

    Thanks for any help.

    I have both and haven't had any problems. So you should be good.

    I have a bed extender also, if the mat causes it to stop the tailgate from closing you could always just trim the base rubber mounts to let it sit back down level.

    I would hate my bed without the grippy mat, it rules.

    ^^If you carry heavy weight in your bed like I do, the mat can be a nuisance.

    I transport slot machines (about 300lbs) and I usually just pivot the machine on the tailgate and slide it in or out the bed, the ridges in the bed keep it from sliding side to side and I just place a 2x4 up front to keep it from sliding forward.
