I bought a ProMaxx rubber tailgate mat for my '12 Ram and it appears I'll have to screw it on. Anyone done this yet on theirs. I did it on my F-150 without much of a problem, just don't want any surprises.
yea i used a rust inhibitor...the edges all stay flat other than the top of the mat cause the screws go in at a weird angle due to the dimple on top of the tail gate...i wish you could wrap the plastic tailgate top over the mat...that'd be ideal...if u fab something together let me know how it looks :smiley_thumbs_up:Do the edges of the rubber matting stay pretty flat with the screws, or would some sort of chrome or stainless steel 1 inch strap work better over the top of the mat for the screws to go into....something to hold the edge down evenly??
If you have to drill into the metal tailgate, did you spray some rust inhibitor maybe inject a silicone gel in the holes prior to putting in the screws to keep the bare metal from rusting under the mat?
About half the time I have my TonnoPro cover over the bed. If I'm hauling anything, it's in the open. The sticky on those velcro pads is ridiculously strong.dkerr, is your bed open or covered? tks. wondering how the velcro will hold up to weather conditions year round.
