I am anxiously awaiting my new tow vehicle, 2021 Sierra 3500HD SRW LB. I already upgraded the base of my Companion hitch to the puck system. I am interested in the BedRug mat for the bed. Does anyone use a BedRug with their hitch installed? If so, how does it hold up to the elements while towing and the bed is exposed?

According to the frequently asked questions on their website, getting wet or being in the sun (UV resistant) won't hurt it. It doesn't hold water it drains right through to your bed drains. Even says you can use a power washer to clean it.

I cut out around the rails and you really need to Velcro it down so the wind doesn’t make it flap and it could tear. I love my bed rug though.

We had a Bed Rug in our previous truck with industry-standard rails for the hitch. I just cut out slots where the bed rails were and installed the bed rug. We had a Tonneau cover which was closed when we weren't towing, but when we went full-time with that rig, the Bed Rug did just fine exposed to the elements. Sometimes pine needles were a little harder to sweep out of the corners.[emoticon]

I had a bed rug in my 2015 with my Superglide and loved it...

The only reason I did not get one with my 2020 was the fact that every time I tossed firewood into the bed, the rug would hold the splinters.. everything else was a breeze to clean up....

I went with the factory spray in liner this time and am happy so far.

The BedRug in my truck is most likely 16 years old and it looks great. It has always been covered with a canopy or tonneau. I have standard rails for my hitch so I had to cut openings in the mat. The comment regarding firewood is true but I have had no problems bringing it clean with a shop vac. When it gets rained on while towing I make it a point to leave the tonneau open when it is not raining to air the rug out. Sometimes this takes a week and I have not experienced any rot or degradation. My knees thank me for owning the BedRug.

I had a custom bed mat which did not go when I sold a previous truck. I cut a chunk out of it and use it as an entry mat for the trailer. It gets soaked, muddy and filthy but I just hose it off and am good to go. It dries quickly. The material they use is really tough.

In 2018 when I bought my new truck, I called BedRug. They said they did not make any that were compatible with the puck system.

I love the company though. Had a BedRug in my 2004 truck and in 2013 when I bought a 5th wheel I was going to cut out for the rails. When I took the rug out to cut holes for the rails, I unzipped the BedRug. I couldn't get it to go back together again. Called the company to see if they could fix the zippers & how much they would charge. Instead, they sent me a whole new BedRug, no charge. This is 9 years after I bought it. Sad I couldn't get one to use with the puck system.

I agree ,I see no reason for anything but a spray in liner for a truck bed . I have had the Rhino liner in my last two trucks going back to 1998.

Why do you need a bed rug in your truck. Part of the puck system is a sprayed in bed liner which in my opinion is far superior to a bed rug in most instances.
