    I did a search and didn't find anything.

    Anybody ever do it...if so what prep did you have to consider?
    How did it turn out?

    Better than the bed mat?

    so sick of shite sliding around back there.

    Thanks

    Search around for a bed mat. Much much cheaper than bedliner.

    I have a Protecta mat. It's awesome!
    Here's a picture of how thick it is

    I think your best off not to spray that bed, im sure that they make a modified line-x that would hold onto the plastic but for how long? i really think that its best to leave it stock or add the bed mat. the plastic bed is great for not rusting but everything slides, there are always tradeoffs. I think that the slick bed makes things easier to load.

    Thanks folks.

    I dunno, i really just don't like the look of the mat...but
    good point on cost comparison, i didn't realize the cost
    of the roll on/spray on stuff was so expensive.

    I don't usually slide much stuff in/on the bed though, so for
    me the slipperyness of the bed is a problem.

    Just wondering if someone had done it and the results.

    I did find another thread about doing it, and i realize the prep
    would be a bit of work. I just wanted to do the bed itself,
    not the sides or tailgate.

    Again, thanks for the comments.
