Cargo mat

Years ago, I had a 91 ranger I bought a rubber, non slip mat for. It
appeared to be made of recycled tires and had to be cut down to size for a
good fit. I bought a new ranger (sold the other one with mat a few years
ago). I'm looking for one of these and can't find them anymore. Every one
want to sell a liner or a $400 spray on job! I just need a basic $20 mat.
Thanks, bg

Bought a seriusly rugged bed mat from my local dealer 2 days after I
bought my SD. $60 and it's taken a beating over the years. It sits
on top of my Line-X liner to keep stuff from slipping around and I've
hauled broken concrete to scrap steel in the bed. Nary a cut or
tear... Not sure who makes it tho. I'll try to remember to look at
it tomorrow when I get to work.

Re: Cargo mat

If you want indestructible, inexpensive mat go to any farm
store and ask for "cow mat." They're usually $40-50 a mat.
You'll need a Sawzall to cut it to fit. You can also go to a
horse trailer dealer and ask for trailer mat (which is basically
cow mat at a trumped up price :-)).

Re: Cargo mat

See if you can find anyone who works with large conveyor belts, any big
pieces that they throw away make an indestructible mat for a truck bed, and
most of them are rubberized and or even rough finish so things don't slide
around. Best of all it's free, the belts get torn and worn and then thrown
out, but the material is still perfect for making truck bed mats.

Took a gander at my bed mat. Looks to be genuine Ford. No stickers
or other identifying marks on it other than "Ford Long Bed" and a Ford
oval logo.

Re: Cargo mat

Found mine at Pep Boys but I'm sure JC Whitney, etc., would have them. Good
Luck!
