unlike my frontier, my Colorado didnít come with a factory spray liner. So Iím trying to decide on a bed protector. On top of the expense of the spray in liner, I learned that to prep the bed they grind all the paint off the inside of the bed before spraying. The thought of that kills me.

I found BedRug which is interesting because of how it fits to the bed. But I am wondering if the carpet like material would get nasty.

Iím also considering just doing a mat and not worrying about the walls.

What about a rubber mat? That way, items don't slide around the bed but stay in place.

What about one of the  drop in liners?  That way you can take it our and sell it when you get rid of the truck too...Maybe get half your money back anyway?

I used Line-X last time I owned a pick up. I tried the drop in bed on a previous truck, the paint under the liner gets scratched up anyways. And rust...

I bought a Jeep and now nobody asks me to help them move. :)

I had a Line-X installed on my F150 about 4 years ago and give it a huge thumbs up. Much better than Rhino.

I have abused the ever loving crap out of that liner and it looks almost brand new after 4 years. I'd definitely do it again

My last truck had a plastic, durable drop in factory liner. It was nice, but I knew it was rusting under neath it. And they get slippery when wet, treacherous if you're walking around in it after it's wet.

Line-X for the win.

I had Line X in my last f-150 and did the bed rug in the one I have now. Love it! Things don't slide around too much and it looks great. Also have a roll x bed cover and truck is parked in the garage so not really any chance of it getting weathered.
I don't use this truck for work so it doesn't get abused but have hauled plenty and no issues .
Reviews were very good for it , many who had used the rug for years with no issues.

Yep, drop in liners are absolutely the worst options. A mat is in option too. BedRug also has some mat options with no sides. They say their products are no skid like the rubber mats, but Iíd like to find someone that has real experience with them.

What did the Line-x run? Is it comparable to the rhino prices?

Fyi, bed rug for my f-150 was $335.
Line x quote was $530 for premium.

Get a heavy rubber mat, and you'll like it.

I got the heavy mat back when I had my 3500 Dually, and kept it for my current 2500HD.

The only time you won't like it, is when something is all the way to the front of the bed. Things just do not slide.

I also have a Extang Full Tilt cover on my truck, and that thing is the real deal. Easy to open, and is waterproof.

Were i still chasing jobs, and dragging a lot of tools around, I would also have a bed slide.

Casey, why would you care if paint is stripped before spray?
It's not like you can remove the sprayliner.

I have always had Rhino liner for my trucks. I love it. My current truck has had it in for over 15 years and it is still like new - work truck too.
​I always get the tailgate done and over the lip on the bed.

​2 things on my old truck:
​1) Had a heavy object dropped on the lip one time. It dented the lip a little. Rhino still looks new in that location, it has never cracked or lifted there over the years.
​2) Another time I had a tire blow out that smashed the wheel well up about 2-3 inches. Rhino still looks new in that location as well - no cracking, splitting, or lifting.

​I must say I don't like Line-X (unless they have changed the formula in the last 10 years). It is durable but it is rough, like sandpaper. The Rhino liner is more rubbery and fells better crawling around on it, unlike the Line-X which hurts to crawl around on it.
Don't know about Line-X and things sliding but with Rhino, nothing slides.
​I have also seen people's truck with Line-X that had the bed damaged (like I described above on my truck) and the Line-X cracked or chipped.

It's not like you can remove the sprayliner.

Itís just the OCD side in me. But I also was thinking last time I got a price for a spray liner it was closer to $1000.

Although, since I need a cover anyway, kellyís method sounds appealing. I looked at mats and can get those for about $100

I have had a bed rug in my 2005 f150 since it was new, it looks almost like new. It is made out material like is used in trunks of cars but with a foam backing. I do put dirty stuff on a tarp to help keep it cleaner. I use the vacuum cleaner on it or the shop vacuum. I will have one in my next truck for sure. Best part is you can crawl around on it and it's easy on the knees.
I should add, I have a lid on my bed, I would not do it without a lid.

I linexed my truck. Was abrehensive at first but after some reading and finding out that Line x is pretty much indestructible and 100x stronger then the OEM paint I have it a go.

You have to remember that linex also strengthens the bed as well. I wouldnít worry a bit man. The rest of the truck will rust away before the bed will!
