I'm thinking of adding the bed mat to my order. Currently have sprayed-in bed liner ordered, but would rather have the mat dinged up and not the bed liner. Plus it'll act as a cushion for anything in the bed.
Would it allow water to get trapped causing any damage under it, (open bed/no tonneau cover ordered). Good idea or am I over-thinking it? Only $ 140.00, form fitted for the Maverick. Any thoughts ?

I always like to order a bed mat eventually. My previous vehicle was an 09 ridgeline and the bed underneath the mat was still like new. Yes, some water gets trapped but with the spray in liner there is no worry about rust, it will eventually evaporate.

The bed mat is worth the money to save knees etc. I prefer aftermarket spray in and bed mat. After market seems to have better quality from my past experiences. Many people worry about the warranty of an after market spray in which doesn't make sense to me when the dealer will send them out to the Line X location where I live if a truck that is on the lot doesn't have a spray in liner but the customer wants it. Another potential reason to purchase after market is because things like mud flaps are delaying order built. It would not be fun if your Maverick is help up because of something that trivial. IE: bed mat.

I'm glad to see other people recommending what I'll probably end up using: aftermarket liner + aftermarket bed mat. This seemed to offer the best combination of everything.

I've never doubled up on coverage, either had the drop-in liner, a bed rug, or sprayed in factory one like my current Ram has. I see now problem in quality or finish w/ the current one at all, it's really nice. I too, though, am debating the factory spray-in, hard plastic drop-in, or a mat as I don't usually load a lot of things into my trucks, and a mat works fairly well to protect the bed floor itself. I'd say it really matters more of what concerns you most, and what you use the bed for.

Yeah, I want the spray in liner for the durability and rust protection, but sometimes there is stuff that the liner might scratch back, or something that might be better on my knees if I have to crawl around on the bed…though I may just keep a regular rug/blanket instead of a bed mat.

The only reason we double up with the mat is because we back our truck up to races, lacrosse games etc and sit in bed in our chairs to watch. The mat is more comfort for when we sit in chairs and walk around the bed for a few hours and the mat serves level out the bed from the rails for the chairs.

Yes, in such a case, something that isn't likely to scratch your haul is desirable. I recall taking a dinning room table my sister was going to put at the curb; it had been my grandmother's and was probably at least fifty years old. The sprayed in liner scratched it and I had nothing available at that moment to have protected it. I ended up placing it at the curb a year later. I now have one of those thick moving blankets in my truck, just in case.

I checked with several brands (3 different companies that produce bed mats), they ALL said it may take 6-12 months after the truck is produced to actually have a liner made to fit the Maverick. I can't understand why it would take that long, but that's what I was told today.

That was the experience I had with my Jeep Gladiator. It took most of a year before a 3rd-party mat was available, and it was more expensive than the same company's mats for other trucks for the first couple months. I included the mat in my Maverick order so I can have it right from the start.

russross, that's what I'm planning to do, thanks. Also, do you know exactly how to change my order from "Lease to Finance", to avoid the "Acquisition Fee"? Help please!

Today, I asked my dealer to add the cargo bed mat to the order and it took in the system. Instead of waiting for the aftermarket to come up with one maybe 6 months from now. We'll see if I've made the right choice when the truck arrives.

I took delivery of my Maverick a few days ago and asked the dealer to order the rubber mat for me and they said it currently isn’t available from any of Ford’s suppliers. Ugh! Maybe if I would have ordered with the mat it could have slowed down my order or maybe it would have come with it. If anyone hears of an aftermarket rubber mat specifically for this truck please post it.
Thanks! John Maverick. ( yes my part of my name really is Maverick )
