    Having trouble locating a custom fit bad mat. Nothing generic.

    Any leads would be helpful.

    Thanks,
    Randy

    Long bed or short? I assume you don't want spray in?

    I'm sorry, it's a long bed.

    And you are correct, no spray. Not knocking it, it's just not for me.

    Thanks,
    Randy

    I have a nice one in my truck. It's been in there for as long as I can remember. I have no idea what kind it is, but I will check it out closer today and see what I can come up with. It is squarebody specific, as it has triangle cutouts were the fuel filler neck intrudes slightly into the bed. I have a longbed also. Hopefully there is a name or a part number on it somewhere that may help you.

    Just an FYI, I found an outfit called Trail FX that sells direct fit bed mats for our trucks. It sounds pretty hefty at 3/8" thick. I should have it by Tuesday.

    Glad you found one! I did look at mine the other day, but there was no manufacture name on it.

    Not quite a hijack, but I was wondering where I could look for a drop-in bed liner. The PO literally sprayed one coat of bed liner and it looks horrible. There are spots worn through to the original paint. I just want to cover that mess up.

    Thanks!

    Shoulda posted for those looking at bed mats.

    The fit and quality of this mat could not have been better. Very, very nice.

    Randy and Corey, do you guys by chance have any pics of the mat in your trucks? Curious as to how they turned out. I'd like to get one for my long bed.
