    Some say it works, others say no. Its a composite bed so Id say no without seeing it. Go to your local linex shop and see it they can do it. Dont use any of that do it yourself stuff. Get it professionaly done and get a warrenty on the work so if it starts to peel you can replace it.

    A rubber bed mat is usually the way most people go. Will run you around $100.

    My Dad has a Rhino-brand liner spray on his '04 Chevy truck that has held up amazingly well. I don't have any idea of spraying onto plastic though -- might want to call a shop and ask them.

    You will likely not get a pro shop to do it or they will but without a warranty. It does not bond as well to the composite bed material as it does to prepped metal.

    It also doesn't really add any benefit for the cost involved. Like the guy above me said-Get a bed mat (50-100) bucks and you'll get the no-slip benefits at a fraction of the price.

    Here is an older thread on the subject of spray-in liners in the 2005+ Tacomas. One poster makes an interesting point about the release agent used in molding the beds and how it might interfere with a spray-in liner.

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/7387-spray-bed-liner-composite-bed-2007-a-2.html

    My Tacoma TRD came with a thick rubber bed mat, don't they all? I usually have a lot of stuff in the bed but mostly tools. I do most of my trash and heavy lumber/metal hauling with a trailer, which saves a lot of wear and tear on the bed.

    Thanks for the info,I just got a used tacoma and the bed was a little beat up so I was thinking about having it sprayed but its not 400.00 beat-up. truck mat is the answer I think.

    Why? When I bought my new one the bed made so much sense to me does not matter if it gets scratched it's just as black inside the scratch, doesn't rust don't need a liner to protect the steel and it has tie downs to hold things in place what's to dislike? I guess it's my bad using a truck as a truck.
