Types of Bed Liners for Trucks

There are many different types of truck bed liners that you can use to protect your vehicle. Understanding your options can help you make the right decision.

Here are your options for truck bed protection:

Drop-In Bed Liner

A drop-in liner is made to fit a specific type of truck and is designed so it is easy to install. These can protect the bed to a certain extent, but they aren’t very durable. Over time, they will start to sustain damage and will need to be replaced. Since they don’t form a seal with the bed, it’s also possible for water to get underneath and lead to rust. They can also limit your access to tie-downs.

Truck Bed Rug

Similar to drop-in liners, bed rugs are made to fit your model of truck. Instead of having a plastic surface, they have a softer rug texture. This can be helpful for climbing into and out of the truck bed, but like drop-in liners, rug liners are not typically very durable. Although you can remove them for cleaning, they are also prone to stains and like drop-in liners, can result in rust.

Truck Bed Mat

A rubber mat is likely the cheapest option, but this is the case for a reason. Although they can help prevent damage to the floor of the bed, they may not extend to the sides. They are also not custom-fit and can slide around and let water and debris underneath.

DIY Bed Liner Paint/Spray

There are some varieties of bed liner spray or paint that you can apply yourself. However, it’s important to be aware of the downsides of this. If you apply the liner incorrectly, it could be more costly to try to fix later, and it won’t give your truck bed the protection it needs.

Professional Spray-on Bed Liner

Professionally-applied truck bed liner bonds directly to your vehicle and creates an airtight, watertight seal. This prevents rust and creates a durable coating. Spray-on liner prevents dents and helps hold cargo in place with its anti-skid surface.
