Is a Spray-In Bedliner the Best Fit for Your Truck?

← Back to List
You just bought a new truck and you intend to keep it for a very long time. You not only plan to use the vehicle for fun but also for work purposes. So you know for sure that you want a bedliner -- but what kind?

There are so many choices out there! You can get a plastic drop-in bedliner that's cheaper but easy to install. Or maybe you go for broke and get the spray-in bedliner. How do you know for sure you're getting best type for your vehicle?

Let's see if we can help.

The Pros and Cons of Bedliners

We've discussed before the differences between a spray-on and a drop-in bedliner. Drop-ins tend to be cheaper than a spray-in liner and for a good reason. They are made of plastic, which can cause them to shift and damage your truck. Plus, drop-in liners are usually not very watertight. And if something gets underneath that drop-in liner, it will cause damage to your vehicle.

Meanwhile, a spray-on bedliner is waterproof, impact resistant, and is stable in UV lighting. And unlike a drop-in liner where you have to have it custom fitted to your vehicle, a spray-in bedliner will automatically fit every time!

Are there any pros to a drop-in liner or a spray-on? Well, it is cheaper to go with a drop-in liner. But remember, you get what you pay for.  And in a few years, you may have to replace it. Meanwhile, your neighbor's spray-on liner will last a lifetime.

Why a Spray-In Bedliner is Your Best Bet

So let's say you do use your truck as a workhorse. Almost every day, you're hauling something around and it's usually heavy. Not only do you worry about damage to your bed, but the truck will spending long periods outside. If this is your only vehicle, you still want it to look nice when you're taking your spouse out on a night on the town. You don't want a dirty, scratched up truck!

If this sounds like your situation, then a spray-on bedliner is the right choice for you. Not only will protect the bed of your truck from the occasional scratch or dent, but you will never have to worry about rust or corrosion forming on the bed. And with a variety of colors to choose from, you can make your truck shine!

But what if you don't use your truck as a work vehicle? What if you just like to drive around town? Do you really need an expensive spray-in bedliner if you don't use your truck that much?

And the answer to that question is yes, of course, you do! You don't need to be hauling something around to damage your vehicle. Just kicking up rocks on a dirt road into the truck's bed can cause it damage. Why chance it?
