Re: Bed Liner
I've had drop ins, spray ins, and rubber mats. each one has it's advantages and disadvantages depending on how you use your truck.
When I had a truck with the drop in liner, I didn't like it all that much until I had to haul dirt or river rock. Then, it was great. Obviously, the spray in and the mat don't allow the cargo to slide around as much. The mat didn't protect the sidewalls of the bed, but you could toss cement blocks in from a distance without worrying about the bed. Plus, you can remove the mat every now and then. I did that about once a year and I washed and waxed the bed (water from rain and such will get under the mat). When I traded that truck in, the bed that was under that mat was the nicest looking part of the body. I have a spray on now and hauling firewood and my quad around in the truck hasn't caused any noticeable damage.
It really depends on what you use your truck for as to which is best IMO.
