Video Transcript for BedRug Custom Truck Tailgate Mat Installation - 2017 Ram 3500

Today on our 2017 Ram 3500 we're going to be taking a look at the Bed Rug Custom Tailgate Mat, part number BMT02TG. This tailgate mat is going to be great protecting your truck tailgate from scratches or dents as well as giving a nice surface to kneel or even sit on. The carpet is going to give us a nice slip resistance surface so if we have anything on our tailgate, we don't have to worry about it falling off. Now it attaches to our tailgate using hook and loop fasteners. It has a 1/4" thick weatherproof polypropylene backing so it's going to be nice and cushioned. This bed mat is going to work pretty much with any tailgate. It's going to work with trucks that have spray-in bed liners, like ours here as well as the drop-in liners and as well as bare beds that are just painted. Cleaning your tailgate mat is super easy.

You're just going to use soap and water, hose it off, let it dry, and then you can come back with a vacuum. Now that we've gone over some of the features of our tailgate mat, let's go ahead and show you how we get it installed. First step for installation is we're going to lay our mat out on our tailgate and we're going to check for any damage or any loose seams. Everything seems to look okay. We're going to go ahead and flip our mat over. This is going to be the back of the mat where you're going to see our hook and loop fasteners sewn onto each edge.

In our kit they provided us with 14 hook and loop fastener strips. We're going to go ahead and separate them all. Since we have 14, we're going to put seven on each side of our tailgate mat. We just take our hook and loop fastener, we're going to leave our protective coating on there, we're simply going to attach it to the strip that's on our mat, and we're just going to space them out evenly on each side. This is what it looks like when we have our hook and loop fasteners in the spots that we want them spaced out. Now we're going to take our tailgate mat and we're going to flip it over and we're going to loosely place it where we want it to sit on our tailgate.

We decided this is the rough location of where we're going to have our bed mat put in. If I lift it up you can see the hook and loop fasteners are going to come right on the edge of this plastic cap of our tailgate here. But, the bottom part of the tail gate is going to land on our sprayed-in bed liner. We're going to need to scuff up this part of the bed just enough so that it has a nice clean surface to adhere to. We're going to go ahead and move our bed rug out of the way, put the tailgate mat out of the way, and we're going to take either sandpaper, steel wool, or pretty much anything you have laying around to just scuff this up a little bit. I had an old grinding wheel laying around.

I'm not going to be attaching it to my grinder. I'm just going to be using it by hand and I'm just going around scuffing up this line right here. We're going to scuff up this whole line going all the way going across the whole tailgate, making sure that we get the whole area that each one of our hook and loop fasteners is going to have contact with. We're going to come back and I've just go some soap and water here. I'm going to spray down my tailgate, making sure all the dirt and debris is off, making sure the surface it's going to be mounting to is nice and clean. With the tailgate clean and dry, I'm going to come back and use a small amount of rubbing alcohol. This time though I'm only going to be cleaning the surface that our tailgate mat is going to be mounting to, so right her on our end cap as well as this strip right here on the tailgate itself. Now we're going to take our adhesion promoter that is supplied in our kit and again, we're going to take this strip and we're just going to rub it on where our hook and loop fasteners are going to make contact with our tailgate, so again on our bed cap and on this back rail here that we scuffed up. We just need a thin layer and we're going to let it dry before we put our mat in place. We're now going to take our bed mat and put it back in the location that we want to mount it, making sure that we line everything up, leaving a gap for our tailgate to close all the way and reach the latches. We're going to lift one side up and start removing the backing on our hook and loop fasteners. I found the easiest way to keep our tailgate mat from shifting is if you put your arm firmly down on the middle we can lift it up like this and we don't have to worry about it sliding around. We can remove the red backing off of our hook and loop fasteners. You're going to want to get at least half the mat taken off and if you need a little more room you can move your arm down and fold it back to keep it from shifting. With half of those off we're going to fold the mat back down and before we push everything in place, we're going to double check our fit and make sure that's where we want it sitting. Then we're going to come back and we're going to push down where our hook and loop fasteners are, going back and forth, giving it a little pressure, making sure that it's making a good contact and that it's going to adhere to our tailgate. Now that we have this side down, we're going to repeat the same process for the other side. That will finish up the installation of our tail gate mat. Now we're ready to go. That will finish up the look of the Bed Rug Custom Truck Tailgate Mat, part number BMT02TG, on our 2017 Ram 3500.

Pros: Easy to install, took maybe 5 mins. Perfect fit for tailgate on my 2011 Ram 1500 pickup. Cons: Wish they provided a bit more velco sticky pads to ensure a smoother and more secure attachment to pickup tailgate. 22387

Tailgate cover seems to be of good quality and the size was a great fit. Order was received without attachments ,but one call and the attachments were" next day" shipped to me ,with apologies for the mistake. You couldn't ask for better customer service. I would still advise buying more high quality Velcro strips to add between the 7 furnished for each the top and the bottom . 210995


Comments
The mat is still fine ,but the attachments keep coming un-stuck in the hot weather. There needs to be a more permanent way to attach the mat

It is what it is- foam with carpet that you Velcro to the tailgate. But the quality wasn't the greatest. The stitching holding the Velcro easily pulls loose. 232078

  • Tailgate Lift Assist and Tailgate Liner for 2018 Ram 1500 with 8-Foot Bed.
    You can use the DeeZee Custom Tailgate Assist kit # DZ43301 on your Ram 1500 but the Hopkins EasyLift # 74211 does not fit your Ram. For a tailgate liner I recommend Bedrug's 3/4-inch thick carpet-over-foam tailgate liner # BMT02TG if you want a cushioned surface for working (or sitting). This is shown in the included photo. Or use the WeatherTech thermoplastic liner # WT3TG04 if you want tough protection for the tailgate from dings and dents.

  • Bed and Tailgate Mat Recommendation for a 2011 Ram 3500
    For a bed mat for your 2011 Dodge Ram 3500 Laramie with a 64 inch bed you would want a BedRug Truck Bed Mat # BMT09CCS. For the matching tailgate mat you would want a BedRug Custom Truck Tailgate Mat # BMT02TG. The DeeZee Heavyweight, Custom-Fit Truck Bed Mat # DZ86917 that you referenced is designed for 6 foot bed trucks and would not work since you have 5-1/2 ft bed.

The heavyweight 3/8-inch thick non-skid rubber bed mat protects your load and your truck bed and will not crack, rust or break, in even extreme temperatures. Since this mat does not cover your tailgate you can add a separate tailgate mat. The link at right will show you two options. Bedrug offers their 3/4-inch thick carpet-over-foam...
