I just figured out the solution to not having a zipper to put the individual older model Bedtred pieces together and keep crud from getting under the Bedtred (like on the new Bedtred model does)....Home Depot has 2" wide velcro, you can use the hook velcro at the seams. You need about 20' for a 5.5' bed. The hook velcro is what attaches the Bedtred to the truck, so it works perfectly.

I'm incredibly proud of myself for some reason

What do you guys think of this stuff?? I might give it a try, I have been looking at that company for some time for my Jeep built. They have 39 colors to choose from and seems to be the thickest stuff around.

Thanks for posting about this, In the past I've been unimpressed with the DIY truck bed liner stuff that is available. Some of it is maybe ok, but it's usually 1/4 the price of Line-X ($125 verses $450) and 1/4 the quality of Line-X. Curious if this is a step up from the rest.

One casual observation: It seems the pricing starts at $120 and you can get a tinted (other than black) bed liner coating for $140-$160 (depending on color) for a 6' bed or less, plus the misc. materials needed that's another $50... so somewhere between $175-$225 cost plus labor. I figure the labor to do the work has a value of at least $200 (for me). Considering all the work/time that goes into doing the best job you can, it may be worth it to get Line-X and have the guarantee. Of course it depends on how much the Line-X costs where you are and how much you earn at your paid job, if you want black/color/UV, etc....

EDIT----
I just called Line-X and got these prices for a 5.5' truck bed: $560 for standard, add $200 for Premium UV protection or add $325 for color with Kevlar UV protection. That's either $560, $760, or $885. WOW! That's pricy.

The creases on the wheel wells have since flattened through last summer.
My first post here as I have only been an F150 owner for 3 days. I got a 2013 SCREW. From your photos, it looks like there are alot of gaps along the edges of the liner, and then the creases on the wheels. I know you said that straightened out but does it always fit loose that way? Most of the reviews say it looks just like spray liner which would make me think it fits snug.. any feedback? thanks! =)

Those gaps on the sides are from the Velcro coming loose. Easily fixed by new stuff from Home Depot. It's held up perfectly and I beat up my bed pretty bad. It fits almost perfect and the new ones have a zipper to connect panels. I have the prior version where they just butt up to each other.

Excellent! You won't be dissapointed, specially when you crawl around in your bed. Your knees will thank you!

I didn't have to trim my bedtred, the sides go under the side rails.

Anyone have trouble installing the BedTred bulkhead piece on a 2015 Screw? I read that the bulkhead came in two designs from Ford. The bulkhead on my F150 has a different pattern than the one posted by Rnlcomp.
