Bedrug Classic Truck Bed Liner

When you’re in the market for a truck bed liner, you are often presented with a number of competing claims. The installer guy you know who works down at the local garage will likely advocate for a spray-in liner. Your cousin who works on a farm will rave about his plastic drop-in liner and how cheap it was. And then with any luck you’ll take a look at BedRug, a company and product that holds a kind of middle ground between the two extremes.

Before we take a deep dive into the Bedrug, it’s important to understand how this particular American product differs from those  other two types of truck bed liners.

First, the Bedrug Classic is custom made to fit your specific year, make, model, and length truck bed. While a spray-in liner will fit your truck bed snuggly too since it must be professional installed, most drop-in liners if they even have the guts to claim such a thing truly do not provide a tight fit in your truck bed.

This is also one of the chief reasons why those one-piece drop in plastic liners are so cheap. They can be mass produced, often overseas, and imported for a small amount of money, and they are designed to fit multiple styles of truck beds that all are of the same length.

While higher end drop in liners tend to fit well along the exterior of your truck bed, say up by the bulkhead and along the side rails, where these products fall short is in the floor of the truck bed itself. Since they are secured in place typically along the rails, most truck owners notice some vibration and movement of these cheap drop in’s when the vehicle is in motion. This leads to added wear and tear on your truck, not more protection.

And while the spray-in liner will match the shape of your truck bed like the BedRug Classic, the typical spray-in professional installation might cost you two to three times what a BedRug will, and that’s not even taking into consideration the possibility of overspray.

At the end of the day, many consumers tell us that this third option: a do-it-yourself install of a BedRug Classic, really is the best option for most truck owners. Let’s dive into the specs of this innovative truck bed protecting product.

    The Truth about those Drop-In One-Piece Liners

    When considering what liner you want for your truck bed, you want to take all the aspects into account. Everything from the look of the liner to the price should be weighed and considered. But while a lot of those parts of the purchasing decision are easy for any individual to do, one aspect really is not.

    What condition is my truck bed going to be in 5 years from now?

    Since all the products in these categories end up covering up your truck bed in order to protect it, you can’t easily see what’s really going on underneath until you decide to replace or upgrade your previous liner.

    What we here at Midwest Aftermarket want to help you avoid is that horrible moment when you realize you picked the wrong truck bed liner. And even I, the Parts Professor himself, have made the mistake of going with a cheap drop in liner once upon a time. And even I had to pay the price for that purchase in the long run.

    The appeal, as discussed above, of these drop-in liners is both how affordable they are and how ubiquitous. You can practically drive down to the nearest box store and pick one up for a couple hundred dollars.

    Now if you don’t want your truck bed to be like every other Joe Schmo’s in the neighborhood, then you already know this is probably a bad bet for you. But if you’re less concerned about the aesthetics of your liner, you might seriously be considering one of these products.

    Let me tell you right now: do NOT buy a cheap drop-in one-piece truck bed liner.

    Don’t do it!

    You will regret it.

    This actually happened to me years ago with my old Chevy pickup. I likely had the same idea many are considering about getting a cheap drop in liner. First, it was cheap. Second, it was black. Third, it seemed like it would fit and protect my truck bed.

    Let me at least say this much for that liner: it was cheap (and cheaply made) and it was also painted black. So at least that much was true.

    As for the fitment and the protection, well, let’s just say that I got what I paid for.

    The issue really stemmed from the fact that my plastic drop-in didn’t actually fit the shape of my truck bed perfectly. It attached at the sides and bulkhead as instructed, but it basically just floated or set against the floor of the truck bed.

    At first, I didn’t think much of this. I mean, the whole point of a truck bed liner is to provide a protective layer between your cargo and your truck bed, right? Why would this be an issue?

    Then one day while I was driving down the highway with my truck bed mostly empty, I noticed something--a noise and minor vibration.

    That’s really all it was--a slight shaking noise.

    At first I couldn’t exactly lock down where it was coming from. I had turned down the radio and started to zero in on it, only to realize it was coming from my truck bed.

    Later that day, I did a few simple tests. To my chagrin, I found I could slide the truck bed liner back and forth with pretty little effort when the bed was empty.

    Again, you might be thinking this wasn’t that big of a deal, but I was wondering what my paint job underneath the truck bed liner looked like.

    That weekend, after taking to the internet and doing a bunch of research, which admittedly I should have done before I bought anything in the first place, I came to the conclusion that I had made a mistake.

    I had had my cheap drop-in liner installed for maybe 6 months now. I ripped it out and inspected the damage.

    Even in that limited amount of time, I found that the middle of my truck bed floor was scuffed up and scratched in many spots. I threw my old truck bed matt back into the bed and went out in search of an alternative truck bed liner.

    All things considered, I’d gotten off easy. I just need a bit of touch up paint here and there. I hadn’t had any major damage yet. But what I had discovered during my research was that many who had installed these types of products had not been as lucky as me and had left them on until serious damage had been done.

    So here’s the Truth about these cheap Drop-in Liners:

    It starts like I said above. The liner shakes and vibrates a little while your truck is in motion. This causes at first small scuffs and scratches, but over time it can seriously damage your paint job.

    Then, especially in heavy rain months, but also during wet winters with lots of snow and ice, moisture gets trapped underneath the liner.

    It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to predict what happens next.

    Water plus exposed metal equals rust.

    And I guess that’s what is so shocking and disheartening and even unexpected about those kinds of products. I mean, you pickup a truck bed liner to protect your truck bed. You’d never think in a million years that the cheap drop-in liner you bought might actually contribute or even solely lead to damaging your truck bed.

    But it really can happen, and it’s actually pretty common with these kinds of products. So take my advice and learn from my near miss. Avoid those cheap liners like the plague.

    The BedRug Difference

    With BedRug, you get a completely different kind of experience and protection. Since your BedRug Classic Bed Liner is designed to fit the shape and size and contours of your truck bed, you don’t have to worry about any vibration or scratching. The foam side of the BedRug installs directly onto the surface of your truck bed using 3M style automotive grade adhesives and hook and loop fasteners.

    At first, that second part made me wonder. But let me tell you, if you ever decide to replace your liner, they come in real handy. Whereas I had to cut and drill to get my old drop in liner out, BedRug liners are just as easy to remove as they are to install.

    And since there’s nothing hard, no rough plastic parts, to the BedRug, there will never be any vibrations or scratching.

    Likewise, the BedRug is waterproof and made from marine grade materials that won’t absorb or trap water underneath the liner. So you don’t have to worry about rust forming underneath, even in the wettest of climates in the worst possible of seasons.

    The BedRug gives you all the strong protection still against dropped objects and it prevents your gear from sliding around in your truck bed with it’s anti-skid surface.

    And it is a fraction of the cost of more expensive and impossible to remove options like spray-in liners.

    At the end of the day, BedRug Classic Bed Liners become a great middle of the road option that may actually be the most affordable and protective option for your dollar. And the way this product makes your truck bed look will catch eyes and make every one of your buddies think you’ve got a show truck on your hands. And while it is easy on the eyes, it’s tough when it comes to protecting your truck bed.

    The BedRug really is a great option for any truck owner out there looking to protect their investment. Check it out today!
