Bedliner...Do You Have One/How Important?

I'm curious how many of you have a bed liner, of some type, in your truck.

Line-X in mine. It made it easier to pull/push/throw stuff in the bed without worrying. Made it easier to get rid of spilt oil and dieselkleen that leaks from bouncing around in the bed. I think it looks nicer and they can even color match it to your truck if you want. I would stay AWAY from the plastic drop in style liners, as they can trap water against the bed and speed up rusting.

If you always have a canopy on your truck wouldn't a drop in liner work just as well as a spray in liner?

In that case, I would say you'd be fine. I just caution people who run open beds with plastic liners.

Yes and very Important. Your bed will get scratched and gnarly looking if you haul, which will lower your value a bit when you sell.

I've seen those plastic bed liners do more damage than they protect from. Water getting trapped under them and speeding up the rusting process. I'd have to agree and say line-X or Rhino Line.

I love my BedRug!! I just hauled a ton of stone, easy shoveling out, easy clean up, and not a hint of a scratch, plus it is soft to crawl around on your knees in the bed like I often do with the cap on it. It probably won't hold up to commercial use, but for me it is awesome!! I spilled gasoline/2 cycle oil on it last year, and you can't tell at all!!
