I bought one so we will see
I would pull that out to check under it every year or two. I have seen a number of beds where the slight play in them wore the pain off and the beds starts to rust.I have the plastic Nissan Drop in bed liner as opposed to the spray in. I would have preferred the spray in but the drop in was part of the Sport Appearance Package. But the tarp slides like its on wet ice..
Yea, I would install them in my wrenchin days at the Toyota dealer. Got paid an hour, took ten minutes.. We would laugh at how people were destroying their beds to save them. My old '79 F250's liner wouldn't sit flat due to all the hay n dirt buildup underneath from prev owner.I would pull that out to check under it every year or two.

Just curious why you think the depression in the bed at the tailgate is a design oversight? You need something small enough to let water out but not let the debris out your carrying. What would you do instead?I would have liked this when I regularly hauled debris to the dump years ago. The Frontier is truly a luxury truck but that damned sandpaper-surfaced, spray-on bedliner lets nothing slide off it and the Utili-Trak always gets things wedged in it. Worse, there's a hairline gap on the cab end of the box for drainage and every little thing jams into it. Oh, and the weep holes on the tailgate like to collect debris, too, which I consider a design oversight.
This bed unloader thing is a great idea that I wish I had back when I cared about this stuff.
