    U can cover scratches on the bottom with a bedmat.

    Scratches........maybe aerospace 303? Should darken things and not attract dust.

    Just guesses since I've never tried, and will never try to clean the bed anymore than hosing it out.

    Didnt mean to cause a fuss.Just hoping for alittle advice if there was any.I have to fwd drive everyday thru a creek and up a mountain to get home.Iv hauled a few rocks and short logs for borders for my vegetable garden in my bottom land and on the mountain.I gro most my own food.But I still want to do my best to take care of my truck and make it last as long as I can.Thats usally 10 to 15 years. If theres nothing that can be done about scratches or cuts in the bed then Ill live with it.
    Thank you kindly for the replies.

    Being composite it happens, I put the bed mat in mine to help with stuff sliding around. The bed mat is worth the money.

    U could rhino line it or something of the sorts. My pops took out his plastic bed guard and rhino lined it twice and it's pretty tough now. I thought about doing the same. Plus it grips where mine doesn't. He doesn't have to strap a lot down.
