I cleaned my box today




Now that I have your attention, lol.







I thought the title might get a few laughs.








This is a reminder to those wiht bedmats or plywood in the box to lift them an clean the bed out at least once a year. It had been almost two years since I had done this and the amount of crap under the plywood was disgusting, (BTW, I have a sheet of 3/4 inch plywood cut to fit painted black and bolted to the floor of the bed). Twigs, leafs, bark and some rather pertrified sand in there, after sweeping scrubbing and a trip to the car wash the bed is clean and crap free.

So clean em up or might wind up with a tree growing up the bed. (Someone posted that happening to them last year, lol).

bedmat = good looking and stuff actually stays in place. Plywood can't do either of those that I listed...

"I cleaned my box today"

Had a girl in college tell me that once.

"yea why not just get a liner? even a plastic one at that"

That was my response to her.

I never like the drop in liners no traction, I have some with the plywood. I' figured I'd save for a spray in. I was talking to a guy from rhino liner last week and he said he could do over the rails for me for $400. After that I'm gonna get a bed mat.
