    Hi all, apologies if this is the wrong forum or if this question has been asked a million times before. I did a quick search and yielded no results. I picked up an OEM Tacoma bed mat the other day and I love it. I was wondering if anyone knew of something similar I could put on the tailgate portion. The closest thing I could find was here on eBay:

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/231929985398

    But the seller claims you need to drill it into your tailgate. Does anyone know of a stick-on option or one that uses the existing bolts to hold it into place? Thanks!

    Thanks! I may look into one of the solutions from Relentless Fab in the other tread. The Westin mat on eBay appealed to me because of pricing, matching my OEM bed mat, and the soft texture for my knees. I'm also considering getting a dog in the future and don't want an excited pup slipping off the tailgate going in and out. I've seen that happen before. The Relentless Fab option isn't exactly what I had in mind, but maybe I could get one of those and add a fatigue mat to it or something?

    Does anyone have experience with the relentless fabrication tailgate reinforcement? I'm worried that it may mess with how my shell opens and closes since the thickness is different.
