    Just wondering if anyone has cracked or broken there plastic bed. When I bought my first taco in 08' I asked the owner of the stealership if he had heard of any flaws in the new bed's, of course he said no. Whats ur take taco friends?

    Seems pretty durable. Scratches really easy though I'd definitely get a bed mat.

    Back in the early years of this generation (2005 - 2007) there were a handful of owners who managed to crack or tear the composite bed panels. In those cases where details were provided, it always turned out the owner had either (a) severely abused or overloaded the bed or (b) stressed the composite panels with poor attachment of add-ons (canopy; bed bars).

    How about spraying on a bed liner to add some strength

    I have a chip (not all the way through) in it thanks to a 700R4 transmission and a corner I took way to fast (bedmat too)

    I have called around to some local spray-in bedliner places and they have all said the same thing, they can't spray into our beds cause the rubber material won't stick. Anyone figure out a company or certain style that does work?

    Honestly the strength of the bed is fine. Mine only chipped because a 300lb transmission slammed into the side of it... it'd have done a number on a metal bed too, if not more. Spraying it with bedliner might help the slickness... but a bedmat will take care of that...

    My buddy dropped his massive toolbox in the back of my bed from an overhead crane and all I got was a little scratch!

    The bed is very durable in my opinion!

    Mine is fine other than scratches. but imo i would rather have a metal bed with a spray in liner. It is what it is.

    Mine is scratched up too, but I've hauled stuff like 50-100lb. rocks with no bed mat. Just this last week I drilled 8 holes through the bed to mount a hi-lift jack and it was almost identical to drilling though fiberglass. I know the bed composite material is more durable than fiberglass, but the debris from the hole was almost identical to fiberglass. I can't imagine you would "break" the bed unless you abused it and tried to break it.
