Question for anyone with a bedrug...

I just ordered a bedrug through Ford and was curious if anyone on here has one installed in their truck that has the tailgate step. I have looked at it, but have yet to figure a way to install the bedrug on the tailgate since it is one piece (the bedrug) with the step handle.

I did search but didn't find anything, so any help would be appreciated greatly.

Thanks...

i can't imagine the tailgate rug will work with the step. I have the rug in my truck but I don't have a step and can't see how that will work.

You can remove the fold-up pole that's mounted in the tailgate.

I still have the step in mine, but removed the pole and bolted on just the regular flat panel like all the 99-07 Super Duty tailgates have. Got rid of the pole and the cheesy plastic piece that covers the inside of the gate then had the gate rhino lined to match the rest of the bed.

Thanks for the replies.

Yeah, my Dad has a bedrug in his tundra and loves it, but of course he doesn't have the step. But I'll be installing a fiberglass tonneau, so I really don't need the handle. Where did you find the cover plate for the tailgate? Because I had thought about making a plate to cover the holes.

The dealer would be able to get it. Mine came off a truck at a junkyard. Might also try powerstrokeshop.com

Thanks, I appreciate the help. I checked powerstrokeshop.com and found one. I'll check with the dealer and see about the panel. It sounds like the best route for a clean install.

Great Idea for Ditching the Handle.

I have a BedRug, but I don't have the Tailgate Piece. My rug covers the bed sides and floor, just not the tailgate.

I just had my bed and tailgate Line-x'ed and plan on doing the same thing as you as soon as I find a plate. Meanwhile I had the pole sprayed also and shined up the plastic peice and for now it looks pretty good and the pole is not losing paint from sliding stuff across it. I'll probably keep all of it so I can return it to stock when I sell/trade it later on. But I use the bed too much to have a friggin pole laying in the way.

I did my install about three weeks ago. I meant to reply at that time, but wasn't able to get around to it. I was able to install the bedrug with the tailgate step in place. I simply trimmed the tailgate piece to allow access to the step handle. To hold the bedrug in place, I used the long velcro that comes with the kit on the bottom of the tailgate and used the bolts that hold the plastic tailgate cover in place to secure the rug to the top of the tailgate. I also used a couple of stainless steel bolts and a stack of about 20 washers underneath in place of two of the factory bolts becuase they are recessed into the plastic cover. It turned out alot better than it looks in the attached pic. So far it is holding up very good, but then again, it's only been three weeks. Hope this helps.

I did exactly what 09f250lariat did. I have had mine on for just over 1 year with absolutely no problems.
