    I've done the cursory search and didn't find what I'm after. I have the Canvasback setup in the back of the 4R but the piece covering the sliding cargo tray does nothing to keep stuff from sliding around. It may even add to the problem. Does anyone know of a rubber mat that will fit flat on the cargo tray? Most everything I've found is either the slick plastic like the OEM mat I tossed or just made for the entire cargo floor. I'd hate to spend the money on something just to trim it down with a box cutter.

    Don't know any non-slip custom ones, but you could easily custom cut a 1/4 inch horse stall mat and that would work nicely

    I'd probably get the cheapest truck bed mat I could find, or check discount stores for floor/kitchen mats.

    I know you didn't want to trim, but rubber horse stall mats (or whatever they're called), usually from some agricultural supply store are good for this. They're cheap and need time to air out a little, but if you're on the frugal side like me, they work good.

    *They're also good at stopping arrows if you hang them behind a target.

    UPDATE

    I found a decent solution. I picked up a roll of 1/8" rubber sheeting from Northern Tool. There was enough on the roll to cover my workbench in the garage which also left me with a 1' x 5' strip to put on the cargo tray. I cut it in half. It doesn't cover it entirely but enough, works quite well. I made a trip to get some precious cargo and there was no slipping or sliding at all. Even had to make a hard stop at a short light and nothing moved. This stuff is made out of recycled tires so it is still outgassing quite a bit and smells. It will go away eventually. For $28 I'm not going to complain.20211108_190533.jpg
