If you put a mat back there....make sure not to cover the holes in the bed. The hot air under the bed from the exhaust needs to have a place to escape. If you close them you take the possibility of burning a hole through the bed. This has happened to at least on member on here

What Vinny said^. If I were going to put a dog back there, I would make a raised bed from plywood with about one inch spacers under it with insulation between it and the bed floor, making sure you don't cover any holes, and leaving a space around the plywood for the heat to escape, then cover the plywood with the rubber mat. These things get really hot back there, and I think a simple rubber mat is not going to be enough for your dog.
I like it though, and wish I could take my dog, but they ain't gonna fit.LOL!

Thanks for the advice fellas.
Looks like it will be a test in progress and I definitely will monitor the heat and look for options or nix the whole project if it's too hot.
I modified the stock lower fascia to work with my KFI mount and Viper winch. I preferred the narrower look of the stock piece over the KFI front guard. To finish it off I split some fuel line and attached it (with shoe goo).

Looks really good
Here is what I did for my dog she loves going for rides and it isn't to hot for her. It is just a 1in sheet of plywood cut to fit with anti fatigue mat glued to it
I like this tread but dose anyone know why I can't see the photos?
I also don't see avatars.
I've checked my account settings and it's set to show pictures and avatars.
I've tried different browser and even a different computer. One Mac one Windows.
On my phone it shows, broken attachments.
Post #77 shows a pic and post #73 shows a pic.
I hope you get it straightened out.
I found a little Jet sled for $25. Some measuring, work with a Dremel, weatherstripping underneath and zip ties to hold it down. No need to buy that $200 roof.
My wife laughed when I started but even she was impressed when I was finished . (ignore the messy garage )
