Truck Bed Liners
The bed of your truck is where all the action happens– whether you’re hauling, working, or even just hanging out in the sun, your truck bed is where you keep all of your tools of the trade out on the road. It only makes good sense to protect your truck bed with a quality truck bed liner.
Your truck cost you thousands of dollars, and it’s made for heavy-duty use. Why would it need a truck bed liner? Isn’t the truck bed already strong and durable? You might be surprised at just how susceptible your truck bed is to wear and tear without some sort of protective lining. Let’s cover everything you need to know about truck bed liners for your personal or commercial truck.
What are Truck Bed Liners For?
As you can imagine, a truck bed liner is meant to protect your truck bed from scratches, dents, dings, and surface wear as a result of heavy-duty equipment being hauled in the bed. A good truck bed liner can take the abuse of your gear sliding and smashing around as you drive down the highway so your truck itself doesn’t have to.
If your truck bed liner becomes worn out over time, it’s far more economical to replace your bed liner than it is to get expensive repairs performed on your truck bed itself. And, if you’re able and willing to pay for a high-quality truck bed liner, you’ll protect the bed of your truck for years to come without having to replace anything at all. Truck bed liners are essential to the longevity of your pickup truck bed.
Should I Get a Bed Liner?Why wouldn’t you?
Seriously, your truck is an expensive piece of heavy machinery, and the point of the truck is that it has a spacious bed you can use to haul enormous loads of stuff at once. If you don’t have truck bed protection, and your bed starts to wear out, what good is your pickup truck at all?
Yes, anyone who owns a pickup truck should have a high-quality bedliner installed. Bed protection is affordable and available in a few different types to meet the different needs pickup truck owners have for hauling cargo.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF TRUCK BED LINERS
Like any automotive product, there are a few different types of truck bed liners available to choose from to protect the bed of your pickup truck. Depending on the kind of cargo you haul and how often you drive your pickup, the heavier-duty truck bed liners may not be necessary for you.
However, cheaper low-end bed liners definitely come with some drawbacks, so you’ll want to consider all the different things you use your truck bed for before deciding on your liners. These are the five most common types of bed liners and what they’re most often used for.

Pros & Cons of Mats and Drop-In Linings
Mats & drop-ins are great low-budget options and you can find them both at most automotive retailers. As a result, they’re popular choices for light-use pickup truck owners who don’t need the extra-heavy protection of a spray-on lining. They’re easy to install, and they look decent enough, but they don’t last nearly as long as spray-on linings and they show damage much more easily.
It comes down to how much protection and how much you’re willing to spend on your pickup bed lining. Spray-on linings can protect your tailgate– mats and drop-ins typically don’t. Spray-ons cling to your bed so dirt and debris can’t get under them. Mats and drop-ins let the dirt in. If you’re willing to tolerate the extra maintenance needs that come with drop-ins and bed mats, the choice is up to you. At the end of the day, spray-on linings offer far better protection for the higher price.
