Bed Liner

Just bought a new F-250. It didn't come with a bed liner. Debating on purchasing the plastic drop in bed liner or having it sprayed. The local line-ex place wants $500 to spray it.

What have others done?

I had a drop in plastic in my f150 for 18 years. I hated it. I would do spray in or herculiner.

Spray it. Drop in liners are a waste of plastic.

I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.

I ordered a retractable tonneau cover for the truck, so I am half inclined to skip the liner...??

I bought a new tundra back in 05 and had a rhino liner sprayed in the bed. Pricy, yes, but one of the best add on purchases I ever made on a vehicle. I still have the truck, I've hauled stone, concrete blocks, X# of cords of fire wood, cow manure, you name it, still as good as new. It hasn't even cracked around any of the dents. Would spend the money again, and never look back.

The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.

My plastic bedliner that came with the last truck held moisture underneath between it and the bed. Disaster.

+1.
The edges of mine also wore the paint off underneath along the tops of the rails.

I have a Rubber Queen mat that I bought 25 years ago and has been in 5 trucks. That thing is the toughest piece of rubber I have ever seen, and I doubt they even make them to those specs. these days. I truly think it will be around for another 25 years, I doubt if I will !

I've seen the drop in liners cause problems, I'd go with the spray on.
