So, after restoring my bed to factory, I knew I wanted some kind of protection. One day, in the distant future, when the body is all done, I may do Raptor or other bed liner, but in reality, for now anyway, I wanted a bed mat.

I wanted strong rubber, but it had to have holes for drainage. I did a lot of annoying research, and decided on home depot's 4x6 bed mat for just over $100. - note that I also researched commercial kitchen and other mats, designed for wet areas, but these were just as, or more expensive than the HD mat. It feels "just right" in terms of softness and weight. Time will tell if it holds up.

The mat also has little nubs on the bottom that keeps the bulk of the mat about 1 or 2mm off the bed, and allows for actual water drainage. Of course the factory floor is ribbed, so it should not be an issue.

It will come out for the summer when I put my back seat in. I may make a second, smaller one for behind the seat as well.

In my Scrambler, at least, the feet of the front rollbar legs are exactly 47" apart, and the mat is exactly 47" wide. I love it when a plan comes together!

I did my best to make a template (so-so job) and then trimmed as needed. Overall, I'm very happy with how it turned out.

Very nice! I may have to do the same. I like the perforated material. I have been considering tinted liner to match the paint, but that's still a long way off.
