One of the most basic tools of the Alaska sportsman is the 4 wheel drive pickup truck. Its how we haul our boats and trailers, carry snowmachines and atv's in the back. Its full of camping gear in the summer and food coolers.
My shiny new Ford truck needs a bed liner put in it before next spring. I told the guy at the dealership I wanted a bed liner installed and he mentioned where to go get one sprayed in. Okay I thought. Then I realized that I know nothing about bed liners as far as comparing them for desirability and durability. I can't make an educated consumer decision on what to do because of lack of exposure by experience to the various types.
My old truck didn't have a sprayed in bed liner it was a slide in and bolted down and it worked perfectly for me all these years.
The guy told me that if I ever needed touching up on the spray in they would do it for free. Hmmm...my slide in never cracked or failed me do I really want something that needs touching up now and then ?
So this question is what should I do for a bed liner ? Spray in or slide in ?
