Default No Dee Zee bed mat reviews?

This past Saturday I purchased an 08 sport (3.0 v6) in black (happy so far)...traded in my 350z for it. Anyway, I have been looking for a reasonably priced bed mat. This truck will be used to haul lumber and landscaping stuff, but just occasionally as it will be my home project stuff getting hauled. I have searched the many variants of Dee Zee and part numbers but have found no results on this forum. Does anyone have a Dee Zee bed mat (specifically on an 2008)? the part number I keep seeing that (supposedly) fits the 2008 is: http://www.amazon.com/Dee-Zee-86718-Truck-Bed/dp/B000VU90GO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=automotive&qid=1301324880&sr=8-1
can anyone comment on the Dee Zee mat please?
Glad to be a ranger owner!

Thanks gang!

Spend the money to get you a spray in bedliner. I have one and LOVE IT. They are worth the money.

This

If you scape it, its fixed for free by some companies.

That little mat doesnt protect your sides and upper walls.

Sorry, I should have posted this in the original content...
I'd like to go spray in, but want to keep the cost at a minimum. I have definitely read about, and the see the benefits of, a spray in. They are just out of the budget that I have set for myself at the moment. I can afford the spray in, I just want something functional and reliable in the mat department first. I can choke up a $60-$100 to keep the bed intact until I pull the trigger on the spray in. That being said, are there any brands that anyone can recommend for bed mats? Thanks gang! (I KNEW i forgot to post something in the original LOL)

Thanks Dixie and all! I'll think about the durabak and herculiner too. I'll probably still get a bed mat for now though. If nothing else, I can throw the bed mat on top of the sprayed in for cargo that can't be on the liner surface.

Crikey...for $415 for rhino, I may say screw it all together Looks like duramax FTW. After I get my pergola and stone planter boxes built and installed, I'll drop the duramax on the list. At 1/4 the price, it sounds and looks like the best option.
