Drop in liner? Yes or No

The truck had a drop in since I bought it. I can't afford a spray on liner so please don't say to get it spray lined. I am considering just removing the drop in and maybe later on as money permits, getting some cans of the rubberized spray on or maybe even doing the herculiner kit from an autoparts store, but something like that would be much further down the road. What do u guys think? Should I take it off or just leave it alone?

Leave it in. Your bed probably looks like hell under it, but your not in the rust belt so there's probably no rot and most likely just rubbed off paint and maybe some surface rust under it.

Take it out! Those things are Giant grinders that continually wear away paint and expose bare metal to water & rusting. Take a look under there and see how bad it is now then you can decide if it's so far gone leaving it there isn't going to make a difference. In the warmer weather you could do the Herculiner and all the prep work.

They're only good for plugging holes in the bed when you need to carry sand

To me, the question is...how many times will you be hauling stuff? If more often, I'd leave it in, if not, I'd probably take it out. If you're going to do something to it later, you could always get some cheap rattle can paint and clean up the rust or bare metal areas and spray over it to protect it until.....

I say take it out. It will rub the paint off, then trap water underneath.

Yep, I kind of figured - I just have a weird sense of humor.
