    I had to share a story. I rented a lawn aerator yesterday. I loaded it back into the Taco for the return trip back to Ace Hardware with the weights that normally mount in the aerator (about 40 pounds of solid steel each) laying loose in the bed. On the way back the weights slid forward hard when I hit the brakes. I thought for sure it would messup the bed. When I got out and looked it only had a scratch where it hit. A "normal" sheet metal truck bed would have dented bad for sure. Man it's nice to drive a Taco:D

    When I started looking at Tacos I thought it was just a plastic bed liner like in other trucks. I was really excited when the salesman showed me underside of the bed to to show that it's a composite bed through and through.

    Go ahead and get yourself a bed matt of some type, it will at least keep things somewhat in their place.

    ^Ah, that sucks. It's odd really because usually when I find aftermarket ones, they all seem to come in 6ft and you have to trim them to fit.

    That thing weighs 50 lbs, btw. Has rubber "dots" on the bottom to allow air underneath. Doesn't much matter in a composite bed I guess.
