Time to talk about bedliners. With most people this boils down to plastic drop in liner or a spray in liner, but there are other alternatives out there. So let's talk some bed protection today. In the interest of full disclosure, let me say as I have before, I own a truck accessory retail store so my opinion of these various products comes from that point of view and my experience with these products over a good number of years. I have sold plastic bedliners for 25 years and spray in bedliners for 15 years. I have met many people who will only consider one of these alternatives (like some only buy Fords and some only buy Chevys), but in truth there are advantages and disadvantages to each depending on how you use your truck. So here is what I think...
Plastic drop in bedliners.
Spray in bedliners.
Other bed protection.
A couple other options for bed protection are bed rugs which are heavy duty outdoor carpet type bedliners. These are good choices for trucks with bed covers since when you crawl in and out of the bed since they are easier on your knees. Another choice the the basic rubber bed mat. These do a good job of protecting the bottom of the bed but offer no protection for the sides and are fairly inexpensive,
