If you own a pickup truck, then you should invest in a bed liner. It is the only way to truly protect your truck bed from rust, dents, scratches, and other damage. But when it comes to choosing a bed liner, do you go with a traditional drop-in liner or a spray-on bed liner?

This article from tries to shed some light on this argument.

Drop-in liners have been around for decades. They are made of plastic composite and are molded for specific makes and models. Drop-in liners are designed to bend and flex, making them relatively easy to install.

However it is that same flexibility that makes installation easy that also causes the drop-in liner’s biggest drawback. The plastic liner expands and contracts with the changing weather. This causes gaps to form between the liner and the truck bed, allowing rain to seep in and form mold and/or rust.

Spray-on bed liners, meanwhile, have gained immense popularity over the past few years. There are several features that make this type of liner so intriguing, including:

1. Durability – these liners are built to last.

2. The Slide Factor – unlike drop-in liners, these liners better resist slippage.

3. Fading – these liners resist fading in the hot summer sun.

4. Versatility – these liners can be applied to most surfaces.

5. Rust Prevention – spray-on liners bond to your truck bed, meaning there is no room for rust.
