The more material you haul in your truck, regardless if it’s metal scrap or your kids’ soccer bags, the more wear and tear you’re gonna see on your bed. As cargo slides around, it constantly scrapes, marks, and dents the inside of your bed – an unsightly appearance for an otherwise good-looking truck. With the wide variety of truck bed liners available, there’s no reason to subject your rig to this sort of neglect. All you have to do is choose the right type of liner for you.
Carpet Liners: Durable and Comfortable
To achieve a smooth, cushioned surface in the bed of your truck, a carpet bed liner is the perfect choice. With bottom nubs designed to fit precisely in your bed’s grooves, the end result is a flat finish comfortable enough to lie or sit on. Constructed of a spun-polypropylene material, the “carpet” is easy to clean with a quick hose-down, is extremely durable and is mold and mildew resistant.
To make your truck bed even more useful, carpet truck bed liners are cohesive with many tonneau covers – so you can not only keep your gear in place, but protected too. A great option is the Lund (previously known as Nifty) Cargo Logic for trucks bed liner with its solid construction and limited, Lifetime Warranty – be sure to check out the carpet bed liner reviews to learn more.
Rubber Liners: Easy and Removable
If you’re looking for a simple yet effective way to protect your bed, a rubber bed liner is a good choice. They’re custom-cut to fit your truck bed, provide a cushiony layer, and are easy to install and remove. Some rubber liners cover just the floor and tailgate of the bed, while others cover the sides as well.
The different types and brands of rubber liners give you more options and price ranges to compare. Be sure to read the DualLiner reviews and the BedRug brand reviews to get a better idea of the available options.
Roll-on Liners: Custom and Long-Lasting
For a more personalized look, the roll-on, or spray-on liner, is a great option for a permanent, protective layer. This is essentially a paint-on bed liner and is a perfect DIY project. DIY kits, such as Al’s Liner DIY Truck Bed Liner Kit, are great for bed protection and are wallet friendly (when compared to professional installation).
With many different tools available, such as spray guns, paint rollers, and scrub brushes, roll-on liners are easy to install. Plus, with different paint colors and application types, unique bed styling is at your fingertips.
Spray-on Liners: Personalized and Simple
To get truly unique, inexpensive and long-lasting protection for your truck bed, look no further than a spray-on DIY bed liner. With a spray in bed liner kit, the colors, design, and application method are solely up to you. The easy-to-use spray gun adjusts to provide your ideal finish and thickness while extra coatings and sealants provide enhanced protection.
With the spray paint’s non-skid, grippy surface, your cargo stays in place. Al’s Liner DIY Truck Bed Spray-On Liner Kit is the ideal kit for all DIY-ers and it’s sure to last the lifetime of your truck.
Which Truck Bed Liner is Right for Your Truck?
The better option depends solely on your lifestyle and what you want out of your bed liner. If you want something quick and easy, consider the rubber liner. If all-over and custom-designed protection is more important, and a little elbow grease isn’t a problem for you, then give a DIY rollon or spray-on kit a try. No matter what you choose, your bed is bound to looks its best. Read what other customers have to say about rubber, carpet, spray on and roll on truck bed liners in our bed liner reviews.
