    Ordered and received my first modification for my '08 Tacoma TRD. Purchased a bed mat from Truck Specialties. Delivered rolled up, removed it from the package and placed it in my 6 ft bed. Fit like a glove! Lay flat with no issues in the corners, etc. The factory bed liner is okay and I will keep it installed; the bed mat will keep items from sliding around.

    sweetheart....the factory bedliner is the bed.....if u take it out, u'll have nowhere to put that new mat. the entire bed is fiberglass/plastic composite material. the entire inside of the bed is one piece and bolted directly to the frame. there's no taking that puppy out unless ur replacing the entire bed

    That must be some tough fiberglass...because I'm fat, and I can jump up and down on it.

    The bed is made of 'Fiber-reinforced Sheet-Molded Composite (SMC)' as shown on this page at Toyota.com. New owners aren't the only ones who think that the bed has a liner. Check out this long-term review at Motor Week. They say:
    and
    Guess if it fools the people who review trucks a new owner shouldn't be too upset by not realizing that the bed is composite. I bet most salespeople never mention it unless they are asked about it.

    I told the sales guy that it was a composite bed, and he said it was just a bed liner. I knew better, so I let it go. This is the same guy that said the cd player played mp3's and had an aux input.
