Has anybody had any good luck with bed liners?

I have the Mopar bed mat and it's great. The one I'm using I purchased in 2007 and this is the second truck it's been in and I use my bed.

Really depends on your use. It saves the bed from rusting when the paint is scrapped off. I have had the MOPAR liner in my 2004 since new and it's still in excellent shape despite the abuse. But if you have seen bed liners alongside the road then you know you must secure them. The new truck I have is lined with a spray liner. Not as durable but still pretty tough. If you carry a lot of items that might tear up the original paint or a spray in liner go with a slip in liner and get the bed rail protection too if you have an open bed. I have chrome rail protectors that also help hold the liner in place.

I placed a BedRug in my last two trucks and really like them. They are spun plastic that feel like carpet and really save my knees when I crawl around bed. Cleaning is easy with a power washer or self serve car wash hose. Has a rubber foam base so water doesn't penetrate to bed.

Very happy with my factory spray in liner. It doesn’t see heavy use but for the average Harry Homeowner it’s excellent.

I just rock the Linex spray in bed liner...
Yes... a mat on top of the spray in would be favorable for more comfort when crawling around...
But for my specific instance's the spray in nails it hands down!

I use the spray-in liner and the rubber floor mat in both my current trucks. My last truck had a drop in liner. When I removed it to install my B&W turnover hitch I found that it was wearing the paint off the bed. I will not use them again, plus, they are hard on the Knees. (Had a cap on it before the 5th wheel came along)

My factory installed spray in liner has chipped up so I would look for something better. I have tried Herculiner and the Dupont Bedarmor as well as the Rustoleum bedliner with overall poor results. There's a large quality difference from something DIY to something that is professionally sprayed.

On my 2009, i had the Line-X spray in liner & i just tossed things in it.
I had to have the spray on redone on the tailgate, but that was because i trashed the tailgate.

With spray in liners, if you dent the bed, the Body Shop has to remove the spray liner to fix the sheet metal. $$$

Bedrugs are nice, they are very durable & easy on the knees, which is grand if you have a camper shell, that crawl around on.

Bed Mats are good if you are not hauling rocks or Fire Wood, that could dent the Bed Walls
I would remove anything like a rubber Mat at least once a year, if i lived where it rains on a regular basis

I haven't tried it by myself, but I heard good feedback about BedRug. As far as I understood, it is easy to find it. I saw it among car parts and accessories on this site. It doesn't cost much, so I think it is worth trying.

My last truck and my current truck both have had the factory spray-in liner, other than one chip in it on my last truck (that looked like it flaked off, but I literally just stuck it back in place and believe it or not it stayed put til I got rid of the truck...still baffled by that) they've held up well to sharp tools, wood, concrete blocks, etc. etc. A little rough on bare knees though.

I had a slide-in one in an older truck, pulled it out because it was loose, found it had been wearing the paint off (bought the truck used). Never bothered to put anything else in.

Wife's Ford had a slide-in, it was nice and durable but way too slick, things would slide around so I had to get her the 'bed extender' that folds out of the way to keep things from sliding all the way to the front.

I've put a LineX one in her current truck. We don't haul much with it, but wanted something that if it got wet wouldn't hold water like a bedrug would. The LineX works pretty good, stuff doesn't slide around, yes it's rough on bare knees but again we don't usually have to crawl around back there much mostly because I can reach over the side and it's the 5'7 box. It spends its life under a tonneau cover so I can't comment on the UV resistance.

I'm on my third truck with Line-x. It's incredible stuff. Well worth the money if you actually plan on using your truck as a truck.

+1 for the Line-X. Even though this truck is more of what I used to call a "pretty-boy" truck...the Line-X is still money well spent. I had my backflip folded up this weekend with tons (figuratively) of potting soil and plants loaded up and clean up was a breeze.
