You can't go wrong with a Bed Rug :smileup: One of my best truck purchases for sure. I've had Bed Rugs in my last 4 trucks and wouldn't go without. Super durable and easy to clean. Over the years of owning trucks, I've found that most dust & grime gets in at the bottom of the tailgate. The Bed Rug nicely seals this area off as it runs from the floor of the bed, up the tailgate...no seam there at all. I've also got a Leer 700 series hard tonneau cover with the carpet on the underside...makes for one nice big clean dry "trunk".

I am on truck number 3 with a BegRug. Absolutely love it! I have even hauled gravel the box on the BegRug. You can hand shovel to your hearts content and not worry about scraping a thing, Cleaning it is a breeze. If I get it real dirty, I use the power washer at a wand wash, and I don't even bother removing it from the truck to wash it. If it gets dusty and I want to haul something that I don't want the dust on , I give it quick vac, usually with a power head.

If you ever kneel in the box of truck, you will like it even more

Now the down side - Wood! :str: The little slivers from wood or pine needles really stick to it....I mean really stick! I have learned to throw a tarp over the rug before I haul a load to firewood, or yard clipping that are going to the dump. The only way to remove these little slivers of wood, is one at a time, with tweezers or needle nose pliers. I've done that a few times (slow learner I guess).

That's the only down side I can think of......Oh yah, If you haul a snow mobile with sharp carbides with no covers, they will cut the BedRug and damage it. Track spikes are OK, but the carbides cut like a knife.

Hauling bales of hay can also lead to sitting in the bed with a beer & pulling some stubborn stems out, after the 3rd or 4th beer, who cares

Haven't tried that yet...the bales that is, but can imagine it would be similar to the firewood scenario. LOL

I've had no complaints at all. When I need to haul something I hook up my trailer.

I live on 4 miles of dirt roads and ran the bed rug for 2-3 years. The first 2 was with a bed cover and honesty it's there but its not so much a negative to not get one. The final year was just an open bed with no cover and still the same.

I would just vacuum it two or three times a year. I shampooed it a few more times since i use the bed to haul garbage since we don't have a trash service.

I've never had one, but I have had numerous bed covers, tonaue covers etc, and none of them sealed out the dust and dirt all that great, even with a tailgate seal. Just my opinion here, but its pretty tough to beat a spray in bed liner. If you don't haul a lot of crap in your bed, it might be real nice to have.

I'm about to pull the trigger on mine and actually thought about the same issue - my conclusion was to buy an inexpensive rubber bed liner to throw on top of it. That should prevent 90% of the issues.
