bed rug

I currently have a plastic bed insert. Can I just get a gray rug bed cover put over it or do I need to remove the original bed cover?
Thanks

a real bed rug is made to look/fit/attach like that plastic one does. I would remove it

The bed rug takes the places of a liner. It wouldn't fit correct with the plastic liner installed.

anyone use these without a bed cover for any length of time?? I need a liner of some kind but i don't want to by a bed cover yet and was wondering how it would hold up in weather for a while.
Thanks

I did use mine without a cover for a few months. If you are worried about mold or mildew, have no worries. The material is all marine grade and you don't have ANY of those problems. It won't hold water either and they are super easy to clean. You would think I was a salesman for them or somethin. I just love the product and I have to get one for the new truck sooner or later. Just doing some go fast goodies first.

They do well! Unless your going to be hauling dirt in it. You can do that but it sure is a pain to clean out. The only thing that will give you problems is hauling plywood. If you don't put something, a sheet or anything in the bed first the little splinters will get caught in the fibers and are a pain to get out.
If you do get one and install it yourself be careful cutting around the tie downs and don't take the protective red cover off the Velcro until your ready to stick it down. The "hooks" on the Velcro will hang in the fibers and screw it up. If you don't have a bed cover and it rains on it it will dry out just fine, park headed up hill helps too. If you get water inside with a cover it can start to smell after a day or two. Just wash it out, let it dry and it's back to normal.

Well at least it doesn't smell like a wet sheep. Fish maybe but not sheep!
