    has anyone bought or found paint that matches the bed paint for doing touch up. does the bed liner already have the wrinkle finish in the material or does the paint give it that look

    just get an OEM rubber bed mat and call it a day. Prevents stuff from sliding around too!

    I know my bed is definitely tough I'm just getting tired of all the marks and scratches that I am putting in it and I want to paint it or something to make it look good again

    Ditto.

    Leave it alone, or clean it up with Armorall and watch things slide around even more.

    Just get the rubber bed mat and be done.

    I put a decent gouge in my tailgate liner hat I filled with epoxy. Never thought to paint over it.

    If your truck bed is in perfect shape you should have bought a Camry.

    you guys are totally right about using it like a truck that is why I got it. I did put a mat in it when I got it new. my first generation Tacoma I beat it up really good and i said when I got this one I would try to take good care of it lol

    So take care of it... keeping the truck bed clean and detailed isn't even within the first 10 pages of things you should do to properly care for a vehicle. I like keeping my truck nice and clean but I just don't see the point in detailing the truck bed. Keep the body looking nice, let the bed do what it will.

    sooo, if you really want to keep it looking good, go get it Line-x'd or whatever that stuff is called, from what it sounds like that stuff is indestructible. and it looks nice too:cool:
