    Hey Enkie, that is the first one of those I have seen, its a pretty neat set up, did you do the lights or is that factory, if you did them, who makes them please, and one more thing, I am just curious about, how big was the shipping box with the carlisle girls and the matt, and did they arrive in good condition. lol.

    Nice write up. Looks like the old one served you well. Did they replace it for free? If so great deal.

    The Box was a nice size BUT only the BedRug was in it.. The lights are made by Extang which I belive is now part of the same Co..http://www.extang.com/docs/blight.html Found them and Yes they are the same Co now..


    And yes it was replaced under Warranty

    Looks great!! I have had bed rugs in all my trucks, and I love them. I also use my truck for camping and hauling, still looks like brand new.

    Here's pics of my bedrug in my Colorado, It's been in there for 8 years and still looks like new. I used to have the extang lights like Glenn has, but they weren't bright enough for me so I bought a set of LED underbody lights and put them under the bed rails. Works like a charm!!
