Icon14 Bedliner and Tonneau Cover Removed (yay!)

I feel cleansed. I got rid of the SnugLid Tonneau Cover and the OEM bedliner in one shot.

I sold them both to a guy who found my ad on Craigslist. He has his own audio/truck accessories shop and told me to bring it over and he'd have his crew take it off. So I got there and he's got a really sweet shop and he's rebuilding a 1999 Ranger that was totalled. He was only interested in the tonneau cover but when I got there he saw the bedliner and asked me what I was doing with it. I told him it was coming out for the spray in to go in on Monday...so he took that off my hands too for some extra cash.

Here's the photos of the before....





And the after...





I'm not a tonneau cover person (to each their own) and I don't like the drop in bedliners (I prefer spray in)...so even though my truck came with these, it was right to pass them on to someone who would appreciate them. And I'm sure he did! What made this deal even nicer was the guy took everything off for me in his shop so it was 100% neat and tidy.

Can't wait for the spray in and undercoating on Monday! Getting a Westin brush guard put on as well!

Well, it makes sense. The truck is brand new and the only thing I've hauled in it was 20 cubic feet of cedar mulch on one occasion. The intent was to remove this thing from the beginning, so I treated it very gingerly. This bedliner was actually factory installed (standard drop-in bedliner on B4000 SE)

There were a couple of places, though, were I can see black scuffs (transfer) from the bedliner onto the paint. Doesn't look like any scratches, though. I was pleased with how clean it was myself. Also, remember, this truck had a tonneau cover on the bed that sealed virtually everything out.

Did the dealer put on the tonneau before you even looked at it? I am confused why it is on there if you didn't want it.

It's already done. I took all that stuff off on Friday...it was sprayed Monday. I also got undercoating, rustproofing, and a Westin Sportsman guard on the front. I'll have some pictures soon. The shop that did it is going to re-do everything as soon as I get back in town because the job they did was less than perfect. That's for another thread and when I have photos to post. The shop has done beautiful work for friends of mine and they apparently had a bad day or the guy spraying was under the influence. I was assured by the owner that it will be done to my satisfaction.

It's parked in an airport parking garage right now...i'm letting the undercoating stink weaken while I'm out of town.

Yeah, that's funny. The truck was loaded to the gills with dealer installed accessories. I can't explain their reasoning, but I've never seen any one vehicle with so many items on the dealer-installed accessory list actually put on it. I just wanted a B4000 SE with none of the garbage on it. All of the B4000's they had at the time were base models (4x4 without limited slip). I'm not buying a truck without limited slip so this was the only option. It was a "take it or leave it" proposition for the dealer. I told them to remove everything or I was walking (which was true). They just took it all off of the price of the truck and gave me the options...didn't want to spend the labor removing accessories.
