One of the most common truck accessories is the bed liner. If you bought a truck so you could use it for hauling your work supplies, then you'll want a liner to protect the bed of your truck from damage. There are different options in truck bed liners, so you'll want to think about the benefits you want from the liner you choose. Here are some choices to consider.
A Bed Rug Or Mat
This is an inexpensive option that you can use alone or in combination with a more permanent liner. A rug is made of rubber or polypropylene so it withstands exposure to the weather and is easy to clean with a hose. Rugs can be removed and used in another truck when you decide to get a new vehicle. One advantage of using one of these bed liners is that they offer traction and padding. They are ideal when you haul things you don't want slipping around or when you want added comfort in your truck bed because you have a mobile business that requires you to do work from your truck.
A Drop In Liner
A drop in liner is made from plastic and its advantage is that is an excellent shock absorber. You can throw heavy items over the side of your truck and not worry about denting the metal or causing scratches. These are made for specific models so the liner fits into your truck bed perfectly. They are semi-permanent. They bolt to the truck so they stay in place, but if the liner becomes damaged or worn out, it can be removed easily.
A Spray On Liner
A spray on liner is a high-quality option. This liner is permanent so you don't have to worry about it slipping around, being stolen, or flying out of the truck. The liner is sprayed onto the floor and sides of the truck so it follows the exact contour of the bed. This allows it to provide maximum protection against scratches, dents, and water leaks. The liner adheres to the metal in the bed of the truck so water can't seep under it and cause problems with rust. The material is tough so it won't tear or scratch. Spray on liners come in a variety of colors too, so you can choose black or a color that matches the truck's paint. This type of bed liner is suitable for all purposes from hauling construction supplies to simple protection of the bed from rust.
