    Re: Truck bed liners

    I have Rhino liners in two of the trucks, mine has a camper on it all the time. Would not go back to any other thing. As far as knees I use knee pads and toss type pads for that.......Jetspray

    Looks great! I'm planning of doing the same thing since I have a camper shell also, but first I need to finish the brakes, install new shocks and nitto tires on my truck.

    Re: Truck bed liners

    I did the spray in and then added the rubber mats like Seon. That being said, a lot of guys with shells do just use carpet.

    Re: Truck bed liners

    I've had both drop in and the sprayed in Rhino Liner (the best). I much prefer the spray in. The drop in's trap moisture and since they're not secure, they wear the paint off the bed and then it rusts. They do protect the bed and are easier on the knee's than the bare steel or the spray in. The spray in is incredibly tough, I've drug stuff across it expecting it to be a scared up mess but not a scratch. It is thinner than it looks also and is never slippery so when you put things in the back like groceries or a tool box back by the tailgate, they'll be right where you put them when you get where you're going. Oddly enough, things slide right in when you're loading and I'm still not sure why that works when things don't slide around while driving. If you need more padding for your knees the bed rugs are great or you can just go get a carpet remnant and throw it in when you want it.

    Re: Truck bed liners

    I too have a camper shell and I installed a 4'x6'x3/4"rubber stall mat from Tractor Supply. Easy on the knees and prevents any items from sliding around.

    Btw, I also installed a bed slider that makes it much easier to load and unload items and placed the mat on top of the slider.

    Re: Truck bed liners

    Since you have a shell on your truck forget the spray on and drop in liners. Unless you are hauling a lot of garbage, old greasy engines or other funky crap you don’t need or want those liners. I’ll suggest 2 options for you. First look into a BedRug bed liner. They are heavy duty custom fit for each truck. They cover the bed, sides of the bed and inside tailgate. There is padding under the part in the bottom of the bed , very easy on the knees when you crawl around in there. It is impervious to most chemicals and even oil and grease clean up perfectly. They ain’t cheap but worth every penny. I had them in my previous truck but went cheap on my current truck.
    Currently what I did is I took some thick carpet padding like used under your house carpeting and cut it to fit the bed of my truck. Then I got some outdoor carpeting in gray color and cut that to fit the bed and padding. I put Velcro on the padding and underside of the rug and fastened them together. It is very comfy on my knees when I’m back there. I sometimes sleep in the back of my truck and it’s quite comfortable and cozy. I can take them out and clean the padding and carpet separately. It cleans up quite well and is easy to clean. If it gets too dirty or stained I jet get a new piece of carpeting. The current one has been in my truck 6 years or so and still looks good. Cost for the carpet, padding and Velcro probably $50, maybe a little more or a little less.
    If you want super protection cause you are hauling heavy junk like old transmissions put a piece of plywood down first and then the padding and carpeting on top of the plywood.
    Finally if I’m hauling firewood or yard trimmings or something like that I cover the carpeting with a drop cloth. When you are done and have unloaded the truck, pull the drop cloth out and all the debris comes out and your carpet is nice and clean.
    My truck came with a drop in liner but I put the carpeting in for looks and comfort.
