Has anyone found a bed mat that fits Rambox trucks? I've looked at Husky, Bedrug, and a few others, all with no luck.

Hi all,

I have the factory spray-in liner, but it is scraping up my stuff.

I don’t carry heavy duty stuff like rocks or lumber. Most common things in the truck bed is luggage, inflatable paddle board, and my bike.

What do you guys recommend for my needs: bed rug or bed mat?

Thank you!
I had a rubber mat in a truck for a long time, I loved it, you’ll never have anything sliding around!

I just purchased a new XLT Bedrug (covers the bed, tailgate and tailgate gap) from Bedrug.com last night for $182.70. Not as inexpensive as we got the Huskyliner version last October but decided not to wait.

In the family, we’ve had three Bedrugs and all have outperformed our expectations. This will be the fourth and we expect it to perform as well.

All you need is a pressure washer and a little Dawn dish detergent to get out any gas, oil, sand or dirt.

I have been looking at the Bedrug XLT vs the Bedrug Mat and Tailgate. I am trying to decide if I want the tailgate portion attached to the bed portion. Undecided.

Here is mine installed Saturday in about fifteen minutes…and as dry as a bone in the back with the Undercover Elite LX. Added the extra Volkswagen cargo blocks (which have Velcro on the bottom) from my wife’s VW and it holds my container securely to the Bedrug. Also know as Volkswagen CarGo Management System and very works well on Bedrug.

I’ve had Dee Zee bedmats in my last three trucks. Prefect for my needs, I don’t do ant heavy hauling and they keep items from sliding around while protecting the bed. I got the right model number from the Dee Zee sight then ordered from Amazon.

I have a 4th gen bedrug in my Rambox truck over the spray in liner. Works perfectly. You just have to get the extra install kit that replaces the tailgate velcro with the heavier interlock.

Right, I'm referring to a mat, not a Bedrug. As far as I can tell, none of the manufacturers make a mat that fits a Ramboxed truck, either 5th or 4th gen.

Sorry about that...looks like they make a traditional mat for the classic trucks and tailgate mat.

Try this...




Should also fit the 5th gen. I would think if it is like my full bed rug.

You can't go wrong with either one but the bed rug is better imo because you can comfortably lay on it, an sliding things in is easier. I occasionally take my great danes for a ride and it's much safer for them as well

I agree, the Bedrug is awesome. I had one in my previous truck for 14 years. For a work truck I might consider a different approach but for my normal use it was fine. I even carried a couple of loads of gravel (but I did put a tarp down before loading the gravel).

Personally, I love my bed rug! I can get him there on my knees and crawl around when I need to load stuff up in there. I’m not one to carry rocks and things like that so I didn’t need the bedliner. That’s just my personal opinion of what I bought

This.

I added a Bed Rug (just for the floor). It's held on by two velcro strips, so it can removed easily if I want to toss rocks or mulch into the bed.

Why = I = chose it:
1. Soft on the knees. (You only have to crawl into the bed once to understand this...)
2. Removable. (Sometimes you don't want it in there.) It literally just pulls up. (Roll it up and strap it to my crossbars.)
3. It is about an 1" thick so any water that gets into my bed (Retrax cover, so it's rare), stays UNDER whatever is in the bed (soft luggage, wood, etc.).
4. It has a great texture so most objects just stay put wherever I put them in the bed.

I have no experience with a rubber bed mat, so I don't know how they'd compare to my choices.

Here's a pic, with a heavy load of lumber. ;)

I have a similar BedRug only mine does have the integral cover for the tailgate (I don't have the MFT). This is my second BedRug (the first was a full BedRug in my 2008 Ram) and I am sold on them. I absolutely agree with all of @c3k comments.

Can anyone comment on whether sand will be an issue with the BedRug?

Quite a bit of sand gets in my truck bed at the beach, and with my current bedliner, it basically creates sandpaper that scratches up stuff in the bed.

We get sand in the Laramie’s Bed Rug that goes to the beach down by Matagorda Bay and it just pressure washes out without an issue. The same with lawnmower clipping that get ground into it when I haul the mower. And Dawn washes any spilled gas or oil out of it like it was never there.

With that said, it also has a sprayed in bed liner this no scratching of paint due to sand caught between Red Rug and the bed.
