    This weather in the hampton roads area aint no joke right now. I was on duty yesterday so I didn't get to my truck until my buddy called me and said that my bedliner was about to fly away. So I got my LPO to let me go real quick so I could take care of it and I got out there and my boy Brendan was trying to put it back in and bend it back into the bed. After 20 minutes of grunting shoving and puching we finally got it in there. We ended up taking my spare tire and securing it to the back of the bed my my 50 ft of line and a couple tow straps. We set my 25 ft chain in the middle of the tire for added weight just to be sure I wouldn't be redoing this all tomorrow morning. i think my extreme lack of a tailgate is the reason this happened. Maybe I should go fish my tailgate out of the mud pit that it got left in. Lol

    I'll post pics of the ridiculousness when I get off work.

    drop in bed liners are horrible - i see at least one a month lying in the median of the interstate. makes you wonder if the person in the truck at that time noticed or heard anything as the giant piece of plastic takes flight.
    spend the money on a real bed liner - its worth it.
