Hey Lincoln,

Pretty easy mod, did the same on my PX2. I bought 1m of rubber backed charcoal grey carpet runner from Bunnings, $14.90. Take the tailgate cover off, 8 x torx screws. Cut the ends off with a jigsaw or similar. File the edges smooth. I cut up the scone burners' yoga mat (let's hope she doesn't take up yoga again), it was 12mm foam rubber and perfect for the job. Cut the foam rubber slightly smaller than the carpet. Slip the carpet into the rubber holders and then replace the plastic ends. Sit the middle plastic piece over the top of the carpet so you can find the holes to replace remaining 4 torx screws. Sit on it and admire it with a can or two!

Thanks for the idea. Going to do this.
However, do you have a tailgate latch cover piece, (the long section) on the tailgate, under the tub liner?
My 21.75 XLT doesn't have this. I found this out when I recently fitted the tailgate central locking kit.
Removed the tub liner and there's nothing there.
