Which Bed Liner is Best for Your F150?

Whether you’re working on a home improvement job or getting talked into helping a family member move, the most important thing while transporting your cargo is space. And if you have a truck, you know how much the bed of the truck really comes in handy. But to ensure you keep the bed of your truck in the best shape, your best bet would be to install a bed liner. A bed liner will not only provide the bed with protection, but will also give it a great look as well. Protection is just the first great benefit of using a bed liner. They also can either help maneuverability within the bed or also do the exact opposite depending on what type of bed liner you install and what you need the purpose of the liner to do.

We offer two different types of liners for trucks. The first one is the Ford drop-in liner. The drop-in liner is a durable plastic liner that contours to the full bed of your truck to cover all exposed paint. Essentially like floor mats, it has molded ridge lines down the whole bed flat surface to not only guide water down the bed but also the ridges help reduce the likeliness of mildew and corrosion that could form between the liner and the bed. With it being plastic it is very functional to move your work equipment or your favorite set of gold clubs in and out the bed. The drop-in liner can be removed and replaced without a problem.

The other form of liner we offer is a spray-in liner by Line X. The spray-in liner is a permanent liner that is applied by spray. It provides the bed with protection against leaks, rust, and harsh chemical stains. The liner will not crack, peel, or bubble. And not only will it also take the impact without damage but also dampen some sound as well. The surface is very rigid as opposed to the drop-in liner so maneuverability is lower but it makes up for the protection and the application itself. And I know what you’re thinking, “Spray on? That sounds messy.”, but it is a very clean look.

If the liners are not your style, Ford does offer a bed mat. You’re not getting the coverage up the sides of the bed or the tailgate but you’re still getting a rubber coverage on the surface that’ll protect the bed from impact. Regardless of the style of bed liner you go with I can promise you will be satisfied with the outcome. It’s like applying paint to a blank white wall. You don’t think about it too much but once you decide to, you can’t imagine how it was beforehand. You’re not only providing functionality and protection to your bed but also giving it a little bit of that personalized touch to the truck to make it your own. So show your truck that you care, you’ll be happy with the results.
