Why a drop-in bedliner is bad for your truck.

Your truck is your baby. And like any child of yours, you take care of it. You make sure it has the right type of oil and gas. You routinely take it to the dealership or your local mechanic to have it serviced. Any issue that comes up, you quickly have it resolved. You love your truck and you want to extend its life for as long as you can.

So here’s a quick question: Why are you still using a drop-in bedliner?

We’ve discussed before the differences between a drop-in bedliner and a spray-on bedliner. Yes, both protect your vehicle from any damage. But getting a drop-in bedliner can lead to trouble down the road.

First, let’s explain what exactly is a drop-in bedliner. Like all bedliners, it protects the bed of your truck from any damage. It can also create a skid-resistant surface, so whatever you’re hauling around will stay in one spot (depending on the circumstances, of course). You have two choices when selecting a bedliner — the drop-in model or a spray-on. A drop-in bedliner is a good choice if you’re just looking for something cheap and quick. These bedliners are usually under $300 and go as low as $50. They are usually made out of rubber or plastic, two materials that are not known to stand up well to the elements. But hey if the dealership is throwing one in for free, its a no brainier to use it for the time being.

Yes, it can be easier to replace than a spray-on bedliner, and chances are you will be replacing these liners after only a short time. These can be custom fit for your truck, are dent resistant, and are easy to install.

And that’s where the benefits end. First, an older rubber model won’t protect the inner bedsides of your truck. That may mean that although the bed is protected, the bed’s sides can easily be damaged.

If you decide to get a plastic model, then you’re going to have even more trouble than the rubber version. Plastic liners are known to trap water between the liner and the bed of the truck. This can cause rust or corrosion, especially if your truck sits outside for a long period of time. And plastic liners are not known to be quiet — one trip down the highway and you will soon notice a strange noise coming from the back of the truck. That would be your plastic liner, vibrating because of the speed and wind.

And when your plastic vibrates, it can loosen. And if it loosens, then you’re in trouble. Because once a plastic liner is loose, it can wear through the paint on the bed floor and around the wheel wells. This will expose the metal underneath the paint and will lead to rust spots. Not something you want, especially if you plan to keep your truck for a long time.

Time to get a spray in bedliner.

So why go with a spray-on bedliner? It’s weatherproof, waterproof, impact resistant, and prevents corrosion or rust from forming; oh and its a Lifetime Warranty! It won’t come loose so you won’t hear anything while zooming down the highway. It may be a little more expensive, but you won’t have to replace it. And the best part, you can customize it with a variety of different options, including color-matching your paint, custom logos, metal flake or additives like a rubber crumb or gripper granule for.

So the choice is clear. You want a spray-on bedliner. And not just any bedliner — you need a Scorpion Bed- Liner. So don’t wait — contact Scorpion Coating Plus today to get a spray-on bedliner for your truck.
