I ordered a tailgate mat for a 1990 Ford ranger, I was aware that it was a universal mat, but did not think it would be a universal mat for a full sized truck. It is just sitting in the garage, the amount of cutting required to make this fit would leave nothing of the factory edging. I could have found an old used bed mat and cut one out of that and been money ahead. Be VERY CAREFUL when ordering for a compact truck. I have not yet trimmed to fit, hoping I can find another resolution.

On my last 2016 Canyon I didn't have a tail gate protector, only the rubber bed liner. It got scratched up in no time. This time I got a tail gate protector to match. To get the right height I got the wider size and had to cut to fit the width. I had to score it several times with a razor knife and straight edge. ( use a new blade ) It trimmed OK on the corners and screwed down well. It is heavy and my tail gate drops down a little faster but still softly. It won't be slippery!

This is an excellent tailgate mat, very thick(around 3/8in)and heavy(shipping wt.11lbs).It is reinforced with nylon inside the rubber to make strong and it also came with screws to mount it with,looks very nice.I wouldn't hesitate to buy this mat again and would recommend it to anyone.

First off it doesn't match my Dee Zee heavy duty truck mat which was purchased one month before the tailgate mat Seems of cheaper quality than the bed mat Also had to be trimmed to fit my 15 Silverado tailgate and the screw holes on the mat didn't line up with the tailgate attachment areas Would not buy again.
