    Mine's Rhino lined. Mud and dirt can be hosed out. One of the best mods we have ever done.

    Check out my pics.

    I used Rhino, just make sure they spray it on extra thick in the trans tunnel area if you have an auto. It will help keep the heat down.

    does the rhino bedliner make your feet slip? or a rubber mat slip?

    If you do the bottom just make sure it is CLEAN!! Anything under there will cause it to not stick and possibly peel and rust, that would be about impossible to find.

    My self I'm getting a rubber/vinyl floor from JC whitney. It's removable and keeps the sound and heat down and is water proof to a point. I still have doors and good seals so i'm concerned about traking stuff into my truck not so much on being open to the elements.

    first...remove anything that can soak up water, ie. carpet, seats, headliner, doorpanels. replace with plastic, rubber, rhino liner, or vinyl. next...remove anything that can be damaged by water, ie. radio, guages. replace with marine type guages and radio cover. last...look for the biggest pond you can find! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Only problem with that is any water/moisture that gets under the mat tends to stay there. Might be a good idea to paint w/ POR-15 or at least Rustolium, 1st.
