    Looking for some kind of physical solution, not a rubber mat. This bed floor is like ice it’s so slick. Any ideas?

    Cut a board. Or bungee cord it. There are bed dividers out there but they cost a little bit.

    The rubber mat is pretty awesome though! Especially when your bed is full of yard waste, construction debris, ect... just grab the mat and slide it all out, flob the mat back in and you're done. Plus, you don't have to worry about everything sliding around...... So, another idea? Ratchet straps, bungees, cargo net?

    Bed mat and the bed unloaded is even better. Just saying. ;)

    My main problem with the rubber mat is that the bed is already really shallow, I feel that’ll hack off yet another inch.

    Are you looking for a bed mat or like @Bogunn was saying (good ideas BTW) something to keep a propane tank from flying around back there?
    1. Bed mat OEM.
    2. Bungee cord.
    3. plywood cut to fit with T-nuts on either side to hold it.

    Truly, the bed mat is the best addition. And it’s an investment that will last through multiple years and trucks as long as it fits.

    Plywood is thicker than a bed mat, and still pretty slick.....I prefer the bed mat.

    Eh, I was bored anyway. Lol.
    Luckily my truck came with it, but I like it a lot more than I thought I would.

    I had a Silverado as a work truck last. Also had a full sized topper on it. I hated that damn rubber mat in that, cause I’d have to crawl in to get anything.
