Bed situation tonneau/bed liner opinions

Hey guys my truck came with a undercover tonneau cover and a bed rug when i bought it used from the dealer. I sold my escalade EXT with a main reason being i wanted a real pickup with a bed i can actually use for my ATV. I almost cant bring myself to take off the cover and take out the bed rug and put a rhino liner on a perfect bare bed. I was thinking of rhino lining the bed and just selling the bedrug and keeping the tonneau cover in the garage and maybe putting it on during the winter or if i sell my ATV. Opinions? thanks

My truck was rhino lined to begin with. IMO, I use the bed of my truck. I can't count how many times I've chucked wood into the bed since August. Everyone is different with their trucks.

My dad has a 89 gasser that he just bought, it has a topper and bed carpet. There aren't any scratches on the bed and he only uses it to drive to and from work. Everything else we use my truck.

Like you said before, you can always keep the cover for the winters or when you don't haul your four wheeler around.

yeah i hear ya. Ive always like the look of a plastic liner but i hear the stories of water getting trapped underneath leading to rust etc in between the liner and bed thats why i figured go with the spray in rhino liner.

You bought the truck to use the bed, I'd rhino it and keep the cover for the winter/long distance road trips that don't include the ATV. Thing could be handy for extra luggage, and might make a slight improvement in fuel economy (some folks see it, some don't).

Id rhino liner it. I want mine done, i have the plastic pos in my bed, and ive taken mine out to see that it started rubbing away the paint in some areas and rust was just starting, i treated and put it back in for the time being, but its going as soon as i can spare the cash for the rhino liner.

As for the cover, ditch it, and buy a roll up or fold up. that way you can have the best of both worlds, when you need the bed, roll it up and you have full bed access, when you dont need your bed keep it covered. that was the 2nd thing i purchased for my truck was my roll up cover. Its great when traveling, bc all the bags are under the cover protected, and its even better at tailgates when everything can be locked in the bed when your head into the game or concert.

If you are thinking about a spray in liner you should look into LineX, it is a much better looking product. It seems to me Rhino looks 'fluffy' when it is sprayed in and dry, the LineX looks more dense and appears to mold to the lines of the bed better.

Yes. This exactly! I went with LineX over Rhino because to me to looks so much better. I also went for the LineX Xtra with the additional coating to keep it looking great for a long time. Either way you go, it's best to get a spray in especially if you got the truck to use the bed.

I have a bedrug and have thrown all sorts of junk in the bed with no issues. The bedrug is pretty tough. My tonneau is the pace edwards electric bedlocker though. It's nice because if you want to haul something large in the bed you don't have to worry about removing it.
