Is there a difference other than the logo?
I bought the optional mat, so at the risk of defending it...

It's slightly easier to remove, and much easier to clean than that pressboard cover. I wouldn't be afraid to pressure wash it if I had to. It's also a more pliable rubber than the sort of plastic-y coated cover so depending on the thing you load, it slides a little less. A lot of the accessories are underwhelming IMO, the mat is one thing I am still happy with.

Since I posted, I saw pictures of someone else who’s lays flat. So it looks like it can be done. But how?
If you look at the ledge inches above on the sidewall above the floor liner there is a ledge to set in to to line it up. There are 2 positions...........

If you take the cover and lift it out and slide it onto the little tracks that I circled it lifts it up even for you...

I am hopefully ordering one of these bad boys soon... When you move the platform up to make it more level is it sturdy to sleep on?? We often do long trips to Florida from Wyoming and we make a bed in the back and sleep back there... Is it sturdy?

You'll need to place something on top of the spare tire to make up for the vertical gap, if you don't have the full sized spare, that's what the upper notch is for.

Probably not. You'll need a full-size spare or something for the platform to rest on when you slide it into the upper notch. Otherwise, the platform has a tendency to slide off the 'lip' near the hatch and fall down, so the platform slopes down from the upper notch to below the hatch deck.

Those with the Badlands or full-size spare, the rear floor is only usable at the higher setting so it’s flat. There is a bit of an up-slope to the rear seats then they’re folded down, but flat for all intents and purposes. The rubberized floor and seat back protectors (not sure which trims those are included with) are nice. The cargo mat isn’t really necessary due to the rubberized floor, but I’ve found It handy since it catches a lot of dirt and then easy to remove and hose off.
