I cut it to shape, but never figured out the mounting. I want it secure, yet easy to remove/reinstall. Free bedliners also make great compost bins!

didn't have a chance to look at the liner. I worked on the original bumper cover, sprayed white plasti-dip, made anchors that had broke before I had it. fit/finish is better and coated grille cover for a smoother look. there was no time left in the day I spent on it but I at least feel better.

I have both a bedliner and sheets of coroplast lying about. The liner is far stronger but it is far heavier and it is far FLOPPIER. It will need as much if not more supports/attachments/hangars than a coro pan.

i can see floppy as being a problem. most of my driving is highway so weight is not an issue.
my biggest problem is time. it seems every weekend i have things to do that weren't there the day before. all i hear is "i left a list on the counter for you". oh well, can't live without 'em.

Looks like you've done some good work shaping to fit. For my truck, I went down to the local Lowe's/Home Depot and bought some strips of metal that are in an L shape but about 6 feet long. Holes about every 1 or 1 1/2 inches. You'll need some tin snips to cut and bend, but it has worked pretty well for me thus far. You may be able to mount a couple pieces from your bumper mounting locations, and bend them to give a bit of a support to the front end of the panel. I've also used 1/4" bolts to install, but Autozone has some plastic push fasteners that could work. But, following my wife's Dodge Avenger OEM belly panel install I only use 1/4" bolts at the front end.

The bedliner is floppy in one direction, but quite stiff the other way because of the ribs. The bedliners actually seem less floppy with the sides cut off.
