When you say they sprayed over everything what do you mean. Normally a spray in bed liner covers the entire bed of the truck, tailgate and bed cap areas. Did they spray something in addition to that?

i mean sprayed over the hooks and stuff like that. I've seen other tundras with spray ins and stuff like that is exposed, but i dont know what should and shouldn't be on a tundra. i also saw a vid of a guy with an f150 having to cut around certain things after he got his bed sprayed

It's fine, it's a truck. You put stuff in that big trunk back there. Use it, and abuse it. That's why it's a truck.

Yeah that's normal for the factory spray in bed liner. Line-x and others take off the bolts and other hardware before spraying. I hate it because I have to use a knife or blade to take out the liner before being able to take off the bolts. I just installed a swing case so I know. Lol.

Yes.

Like everyone else has said, if you purchased your truck with the liner installed, everything inside the bed except the bed rails will be sprayed with liner. I'm fine with it, but some are not.

You can sit on the tailgate. The only information I can find regarding the tailgate on the Tundra is that it is not intended as a load bearing device. I think that's probably true with most tailgates, though. You can put weight on it temporarily but avoid loading it up and leaving it loaded during transport.

My bolts and hooks were removed before spraying, so they are not coated. My brother in laws Tundra's hooks and bolts were left in and sprayed over. His is Rhino Liner and mine is Line-X. For whatever reason, he was pissed about it at first. I don't think he gives a damn now. I don't think it makes much difference either way. It's a truck bed, and designed for some abuse.

Congrats on the new truck!

The new 2017 factory spray in liner covers every bolt and hook...except the hooks closest to the bed.
At first I thought they screwed up and missed them, but when I was at dealer casually talking about the side rails, he said..."For some reason they don't spray liner over the rear hooks anymore". He didn't know why.

I have 2 tundra's. I had Line-x do the 2011 and they removed all hardware. Rust on bolt heads shows.
The 2017 came with everything sprayed over.

I had rusty bolts in the bed of a F150 with Rhino, I didn't like it much. Every truck i've had done since I asked that they spray over bolts.
