inexpensive p-up bed mat

my wife got a new toyota p-up and the stuff the bed is made of is slicker than snot.

i was tired of everything we put back there sliding around.

so i started looking at bed-mats and they all came in about $100.oo and that seemed like alot of money.

the other day when i was at the local feed store, i started looking at stall mats

they had some bulk mat on a roll and it was $4.99 a foot.

so 6 feet and $30.oo later

Hi Matt
What the heck are stall mats? Are they something for the cows & horse to lay on?

yep, most of our belt at work isnt wide enough, its hard to get the wide stuff,
we only have few screens that use the big stuff.

i have a whole roll of used belt from work, i keep around for whatever.

i thought about using two pieces side by side

but this turned out way nicer

plus, you can't put cruddy old belting into your wife's brand new truck

Most stall mats are used in horse trailers to keep ur ponies feet from slipping and give them some cusion from the road bumps. I've had them in both of my horse trailers and never had a horse go down, they're about 1/2" thick. If you cut them in 2' x 6' strips they also make nice cusions to stand on in front of your work bench.

Cool!! We have about 10 of them we took out of horse stalls, just laying out in the corral right now.
I always used to get old conveyor belting but never found any wide enough so I had a seam up the middle.
