Bedrug or more?

Purchased my truck used and it came with a BedRug fully lining the box. Now that is just fine as on the rare occasion where I'll haul something dirty I can easily throw a tarp in there to keep stuff nice but I was curious how well the bedrug will protect the paint from damage such as deep scratches or wearing through over time? It seems to be fairly secure and doesn't move around too much but I am half tempted to at least Herculine the tailgate under the bedrug just to be thorough- but is that overkill?

I've got a BedRug but I've only had it about 5 months. It doesn't seem to move around but I think it would still end up scuffing the paint underneath over time. That's not a problem for me because I don't worry about the paint in the bed of a truck...I just try to keep the exterior surfaces looking nice.

Underneath the tailgate part of the BedRug I added a piece of 1/8' thick plywood and a piece of closed cell foam from an old camping pad. That makes it much more comfortable to sit on.

no issues

other than lining up the bolt holes when reinstalling or the rust stains from the floor jack sitting on a wet spot. I much prefer the sound deadening from the padding when stuff is in the bed.

Do the bedrug trap moisture? I'm just looking for personal experience/reviews before I decide to get one.

Considering the fact

that I've got a Rollbak top, yes it tends to hold moisture because the top leaks. I don't daily drive my truck, so I have to check on it on the weekends to make sure the back doesn't get too wet and gets a chance to air out.

The Bed Rug can be a little trouble to clean after hauling wood or something messy only because I haven't used a tarp underneath the load. Otherwise, it's quite nice to have to protect loads, it's easy to slide objects, and it's kind to the knees while crawling on the bed in the garage to unload. It also increases the traction a bit for items that are in the bed so they don't move around as much in comparison to a bare metal bed.

It's about the easiest installation I've done on a vehicle.

I have a tri-fold top on mine with the bedrug and have not had any issues leaking so therefore no issues with moisture. The Bedrub marketing states a tonnaeu cover is not required and the fabric is an open weave, closed fiber design. I did wash it out once this year and noted that the fabric drained water and dried fairly readily.
