Bed Rugs...

I have been thinking one over to put in my bed for my dogs, anyone have any tips on what a good, durable, EASILY cleaned bed rug would be? I have no knowledge whatsoever about them, never even thought I would need on until now.
Any brand that is good?
Where to get one?
How much they cost?
What are they made of?

Oh yeah, I do not want wnat that covers the sides/tailgate, ONLY the bottom for the dogs.

You can buy 6' of outdoor carpet and just cut it to go around the humps for the wheels. They have it in tock at Lowes or Home Depot for like .43 a square foot.

I agree with what Zach said!!!


I got it from wholesalemn.com he is a member on this site. i paid about $280 and say that it is worth every penny. Check out their site because if i remember right it had a lot of good info. Easy to clean, comfortable too lay on, and gauranteed against everything(most that can happen is that you might stain it)

DAMN! I did not know the rugs were 300 bucks! I think I'd rather have the rubber mat anyway, or go the Homo Depot route. I really did not want/need it to go up the sides or the tailgate anyway.

Still workin on mine, have to do the sides yet,
Floor is 1/2 ply covered with Speaker box carpet { cheap }.
Works great, keeps the tools from sliding around.

ill hafta get a pic of mine, its from a store actually, when u first walk in the door theres that rubber backed carpet on the floor? well, there was a guy at the fleamarket selling used ones. dod got mine for me for $5 works GREAT its a tad longer than my bed, so i folded it down ender the tailgat, i works just awsomely, and, itll take alot of abuse, plus, as an added bonus, its fire resistant.

I have a rubber bed-mat in my truck. I bought it shortly after I bought the truck back in '03.. so I can't remember what I paid for it.. but it wasn't much. Far less than $100 shipped. TruckAddons.com has'em for the Ranger for just under $70. I bought the extra part that get screwed into the tailgate and then ran an aluminum diamond-plate gaurd over the top of that to protect the lip of the tailgate. Works pretty slick. Cheaper than even a drop-in plastic liner and just about as functional. Cleaning is as easy as a garden hose. They roll up and ship pretty cheap too..

I think that's what I want. How thick is it? Would it offer the dogs a little padding from the ribs/Line-X that I have on there now?
I'm looking at the DeeZee one on that site you gave, is that the one you have?

About a 1/4 inch thick. My truck is not lined/line-x'ed and w/ just the mat it's enough to level out the ribs. I wouldn't want to sleep in the bed w/o some more padding, but it's okay. Mostly I like it because it is not as slipery. Stuf doesn't slide around as much w/ the mat in place. It is also eaiser to take out and hose down.

I can't remember what brand mine is. But I suspect it is cheaper than the 'DeeZee' stuff you're looking at as it does not have a logo on it. Correction: it does look very much like the 'Heavy Weight Bed Mats and Tailgate Mats' at the bottom the DeeZee product page. The drop down says they run $67 for 94-06 Rangers w/ the 6' bed. That sounds very much like what I paid.
