Recommend me a bedliner for my new truck...

Hi all,

Finally got my new truck so I can safely pull my trailer with my family and not have to worry about overload issues. What a relief!

But now I don't want to scratch that nice shiny new bed when throwing all the gear in.

I came across Bedtred on Gator Covers website and a Dualiner on autoanything website as 2 possible options. Leaning toward the Bedtred at this point but was wondering if anyone else out there had any additional recommendations.

Thanks all,
Chris

I like Linex spray in bedliners.

Me too. Nearly 10 years now in my work truck and still holding well despite cruel and unusual punishment.

Spray in liner. Probably LineX but any spray is better then the plastic ones. I love my spray in. No scratches or damage and I use it hard.

I've heard bad things about the sprays trapping moisture and destroying paint. Plus quite a bit more difficult than simply plopping a liner in. Was leaning toward a non spray so that it is removable as well.

I found a flop in liner about 3/4 of a inch thick on Amazon a few years ago for the 1/2 ton.

Pull it once a year/hose it out. Works for me.

I know it doesn't cover the sides but I don't work that hard! Made of old tires.

I had a rhino liner and loved it. Looked new after 7+ years and had everything from a bolt on tool box to camper shell resting on it.

Current truck has an off brand liner that the previous owner put on it. After the 5 years that I have owned it, it does have a few small cuts and scratches on it, but looks much better than it would without it. Most were from dragging large items like a huge safe, 60 gallon air compressor, 2500 lbs pallets of stone, etc. A big benefit besides keeping the bed looking good is that things do not slide around as much.

I completely disagree with spray liners trapping moisture. As long as the paint is cured, it prevents trapped moisture. It's the drop in bedliners that you have to worry about since they have a space between the liner and the bed.

I wouldn't own a truck without a sprayed I liner and I like the ones that go up and over the bed rails. That said, I would stick with the big brand names: rhino, line x, etc. because I can't even imagines what it costs to get one redone. I would also look at what it costs to do the wheel wells. My chevy does not have any kind of liner in the rear wheel wells and the white paint always shows road grime. I think it would be a perfect place to get sprayed.

I have a Full Metal Jacket spray-in liner and it still looks quite good after about two years. I don't carry a lot in it but what I have put in it has not damaged the liner. Full Metal Jacket was the only brand that I could get in our little town.

One thing I forgot to add. When I got the rhino liner done, they had me keep the tailgate down for a day and advised from putting anything too heavy or sharp in it for a few days in order to give it a chance to cure out. Take this into consideration on scheduling. Don't do it right before a big trip if you have a 5th wheel hitch.

I have a drop-in liner with a rubber mat in my present TV....., but my next truck will have a spray-in liner with the rubber mat.
