In an exercise to figure out which bed liner provides the best value we must first ascertain what a truck owner expects to achieve when purchasing a bed liner.
A bed liner is designed to guard your truck from damage, caused by cargo. Most truck purchasers want to avoid destroying the trucks paint as well as prevent denting caused by moving objects in the bed of the truck. In the truck bed liner market there are numerous types of bed liner to choose from, the most common ones are “Drop In bed liners,” “Spray On Bed Liners” and new to the market, the “Hybrid Bed Liner.
The prototypical bed liner would be one that presents the maximum amount of protection to the box of the truck, without causing any infliction to the trucks finish or sheet metal. This is where the “Drop In Bed Liner” lacks because over time these loose fitting “Drop-Ins” will shift around in the box of the truck. Since the “Drop In bed liner” has extra room in several areas, dirt and sand accumulate there. Add this to the shifting motion of the Drop-In and you have a big problem on your hands. It is just a matter of time before your finish is worn off completely, leaving these areas susceptible to rust and corrosion.
“Spray On Bed Liners” have a unique type of preparation process that is required for installation. It is called “grinding off the finish.” This allows the chemical solution to adhere to the trucks sheet metal. The Problem with most “Spray On Bed Liners” is the fact that they do not provide much dent protection. Another common problem with “Spray On bed liners” is the fact that the suns rays are very destructive to the appearance of these products, so over time, you can be left with a deformed looking truck bed.
