You guys got it all wrong. Fiberglass or quarter-inch polished stainless
diamond plate. Now that's tough!
Quite seriuosly, I would go with a good fine-grained hardwood. Oak is
good, but is hard on the wallet.
I have oak on my bed. Unfortunately, the sun and rain got the best of it
and turned the once golden sheen finish to a nasty peeling grey
So, needless to say, it's this finish that counts.

Check out the tech page on www.chevytrucks.org I am pretty sure the
dimensions of bed wood bits are there. Failing that check out the archives
on www.escribe.com and search for bed wood + forbes; Jim Forbes measured
and posted the info to the list in early 1998.
For unusual, how about stainless steel with a Rhino-coating on top?
That's what I went with.
