    I have never had bed rug but wonder if it would be a good alternative to a spray in bed liner. Opinions or experience?

    My truck came with factory spray in. I added a bedrug over it because the spray in is pretty harsh on the knees.

    Anther advantage to bedrug is the smooth surface makes it easy to empty out material like dirt, gravel and mulch.

    Hadn't thought about it being easier on the knees. That would be nice since I just had one replaced last year. Thanks.

    I've had Bedrugs in a number of trucks. Excellent. I have the factory spray in liner, no choice in the package. I have installed the XL (no sides) on this one.

    No comparison, depends on what your use is for. Bed-Rug here and love it, but mines not a work truck either. The down side is it holds anything dirty in the nap and you have to vacuum it to keep it clean, but if you want something more "industrial" for work purposes go with the bed liner.

    I would do both. The spray in liner is more durable and will help to protect your bed and less likely to let it rust. If you put down just the bedrug, i've seen where the bedrug alone will collect moisture and dirt under it and CAN (not will) cause it to rust sooner without the spray in liner under it. I like the fact that the bedrug does make it easier on the knees and does help to keep stuff from sliding around a little more.

    I had a Bedrug in my last truck and I loved it. Like others have mentioned it is really easy on the knee's since the floor portion is padded. I had a cap/canopy, that had matching colored carpet on the inside which really enhanced the appearance. I guess a lot depends on how you will be using the bed. Good luck with your decision.

    I have a drop in plastic liner with the BedRug mat on top of it. The drop in Pendaliner is getting tossed and I am just waiting for better/consistent weather to spray in my Raptorliner. Then will put the BedRug mat back in.
    Absolutely love the BedRug, cushioned and nothing slides. Its a knee saver and will not destroy what you put in the bed to carry. Saves the fishing reels, furniture, etc.

    My BedRug is currently full of topsoil....Ive read it should come perfectly clean with a little vacuuming and maybe some pressure washing. Will take before and after pics once I finally get around to it!
