    I have had two previous trucks, all with metal beds that I had covered with bed liners. Now with my new Tacoma I don't really like not having the opion of fully covering the bed with a liner. If I buy the bed mat the wall of the bed will still be exposed to scratches.

    What do you guys do?? Just forget about the bed scratches??

    You can have the bed spray lined if you would like. I have the Toyota bed mat and it is the best accessory I have purchased, but I don't mind my bed getting scratched up

    The bed is a composite material, it'll never rust.

    I have a bed mat, and that's primarily to prevent stuff from rolling around.

    I'm personally not worried about scratches in the bed. I'm always careful not to put any scratches in it (or any part of my truck), but the bed is for haulng stuff and it'll get scratched ....in due time. I have a tonneau cover that keeps it looking 'un-noticablely scratch free'.

    The bed doesn't need any additional protection. I've had all sorts of shit in mine: piano, tools, springs, camping crap, furniture, sharp edges, dull edges. Bed is holding up just fine:thumbsup:

    I have the bed mat, and my dog has scratched the sides of the bed all to hell. Good thing I don't care what my bed looks like!
