Sprayed On Truck Bedliner | Pros and Cons

If you own a pickup, then you most likely either have a bed liner or are considering installing one. One of the most popular choices is a sprayed on truck bedliner, and for good reason. They have several key advantages to the more standard heavy duty plastic or rubber bedliners, making them a great choice. However, there are some things to consider before spending your money on one. We've outlined some of the advantages below, and also mentioned a couple disadvantages that you need to be aware of.

First, let's start with the pros of having a sprayed on bedliner:

1 - The biggest advantage is their excellent durability and resistance to scratches. You can drop just about anything on them without worrying about gouging or scratching the surface.

2 - Their non skid surface will prevent your cargo from moving around. This is a pretty big plus as well, since you don't want things such as gas cans or breakables moving around.

3 - You will experience less vibration in your bed with one of these, as compared to a more traditional hard plastic liner. The reasoning for this is the sprayed on version is adhered directly to the bed, making it essentially one piece. This leaves no room for flexing or moving of materials at all, even during extreme wind conditions.

4 - Moisture cannot get between the liner and pickup bed, causing rust and corrosion. This is a possibility with other bed liners, which can damage and rot your vehicle over time.

5 - This material will never crack or split due to inclement weather conditions. It can handle extreme cold and heat.

6 - Several colors are available, allowing you to match the bedliner with the color of your paint.

7 - And finally, there are no special sizing requirements to worry about when ordering since it is sprayed directly onto the bed.

Here are some potential negatives to consider before buying a sprayed on truck bedliner:

1 - This type of liner can never be removed. While you may never need to replace it, should you sell your truck the liner will go with it.

2 - It needs to be installed by a professional, who has the correct equipment to do the job. Many shops provide this service for a fee.

3 - They tend to be more expensive than comparable heavy duty rubber or plastic bedliners.

As you can see, there are some distinct advantages to installing a sprayed liner on your pickup but there are also reasons why you may want to go the more traditional route. You need to weigh the pros and cons and decide which one makes sense for you. Fortunately, the options are abundant and there is alot of information available for each one. One thing that is certain is that no matter which bedliner you choose, your bed will be protected from unnecessary damage.
