The Bedrug is really a plastic bedliner that looks and feels like carpet. The closed-cell foam backing bonded to the plastic fiber surface won't absorb liquids, keeping them on the surface where they can be easily washed away just like on a hard plastic bedliner and preventing stains. The plastic foam backing is heat- and pressure-molded for each truck model, conforming exactly to the contours of the bed. This affords a tough, flat, knee-friendly, nonskid surface that cushions fragile cargo and is also a great place to throw a sleeping bag during camping excursions. All the factory tie-downs and two-tier loading features are retained.
