Followed your instructions exactly- worked out great. I ended up cutting the extra mat to fit in the trunk. A good use of the waste piece. Thanks.oridgenL said:I ordered and just installed a mat from truckcustomizers.com. I am not the first with this, I got this info somewhere on the site awhile back. The item number was R4LRV4.3D, made for a 88 and up c/k pickup. $56.68 delivered. I just put it in last night, width fit perfect between 'wheel wells' I cut off 17inches and that fit perfect in trunk bottom, my plan if I need to haul something across tailgate is to put this piece on it, fits here nice also. One small thing, when you cut, snips work well and turn mat around and cut excess off end that will wind up against cab. This makes finished end of mat wind up at tailgate and the ProTecta name come out almost in center of box.
The Bed Extender may be impacted by the mat because it has a strap and buttons. I am not sure if the strap has the extra length to it to allow it to reach the buttons if you add the mat in between. Of course you could drill the mat for the holes that match up with the extender legs and maybe find some sort of plastic cap that will fit inside the holes. Then when you have the extender out you pull the caps and drop the legs into the holes so that the straps still reach. I have my extender up at the front so I haven't really tried to see how must play there is in the straps, but I would hope not much if any.meanmachine19 said:Although I cut the bed mat to size (59 1/2 inches), I am going to trim the excess piece to fit the tail gate. Does anyone know if a bed extender will be affected if I 'glue' the mat on to the inside part of the tailgate? Otherwise, I'll just carry it in the trunk and use it if I put the tailgate down (like I did today).
LOL!! I can't believe there wasn't an ooooer, nudge, nudge, wink, wink posted after that! I hope hubby doesn't find out. Personally, I hate carpet rash.LadyRidge said:I saw a comfy, cuddly carpet in Ultra-HOG's bed the other night. It worked great!!
