Damage shouldn't be much of an issue with the stainless steel. My main concern is junk (sticks, rocks, dirt, leaves, etc.) getting jammed into the T-slots. Transport half a yard of yard mulch and spend the next several days picking out wood chips out of the T-slots piece by piece.does a 30x stainless steel bed not require a bed liner like normal trucks? It’s a must on a traditional truck bed as they start rusting as soon as they get scratched.
I agree, it's very hard to use the thin ones that fold up easily. What happens is it catches on the rubber, and the rubber doesn't have the integrity to stay in place, so it folds and bunches up.I hate the rubber mats. Difficult to slide things in and out.
the 30x SS is tough, but it's not invulnerable. I will get dented.Seems silly to put a bedliner on the Cybertruck. It's... stainless steel. Ain't nothin gonna happen to it!
bed liners, at least here in CA arent really needed, more of just "if you want". im sure the bed will be able to take tons of abuse.
I worked with guys who abuse there work trucks, the beds r dented and beat to shit. that dosnt stop them from laoding bricks in it everyday.
but I also know guys who rhinoline the bed and literally use the truck for commuting and occasional camping trips.
to each there own.
BUT spray on liner with the "T slots" might be a problem
I think Tesla put rubber bump inserts in the Reveal Truck and that's what has everyone guessing as to whether or not they are T-slots.There are rubber'like inserts for filling up the T-slots. Google "T-slot rubber insert"
Those who don't use the slots and like a bit of grip, don't want sh_t in the slot - use the insert.
For everyone else, go naked.
A bed liner would be made by a company that ain't gonna get any of my money. I respect everyone's opinion, but bed liners were invented to keep the bed from getting all gnarlified (see dented, scratched and rusted) after years of abuse. I also think after 20 years of abuse, 3mm of the cold rolled stuff are gonna look just fine. Goin' commando here. Oh, and also won't be spraying in a bedliner.A bed liner would be made by a third party company that Tesla would not make.
