Trucks need bed liners to protect the painted metallic bed surface of the box of the truck for the surface to last long. Various types of truck bed liners include drop-in liners, spray-on liners and bed liner rugs, and mats. Bolts are used to install drop-in liners because they are made of plastic or aluminum. You roll up and lift the bed liner mat or rug from the truck without the use of any special materials because they are made of flexible plastic, rubber, or polyester. Spray-on liners are rolled onto the bed of the truck with liquid adhesives and left to dry, or they are strong and smooth coatings of liquid sprays.
Use durability of the bed liner to choose the appropriate one for your truck to avoid the costs of replacing it frequently. The most durable truck bed liners are the spray-on liners.
Consider how you use the box of your truck because you need a truck liner that will meet those needs. If the box of the truck is used to carry items that you prefer that they stay in one place, install rough-textured liners. You may need the items to stay at one place to prevent the noise that is created when they hit against one another or because of any other sensible reason. If you use a smooth truck liner, then the items will slide from one position to another.
There are permanent and temporary bed liners for you to choose depending on how frequently you clean the bed of your truck or replace it. Spray-on liners are permanent while drop-in liners are removable. You have the freedom of removing the drop-in liners from the truck regularly, to replace them or to clean the bed of the truck and the bed liner itself. When you need to clean the drop-in liner or the bed of your truck roll it up and lift it out of the truck.

Spray-on liners have added costs of hiring experts to apply them in the truck. The spray-on liner has a more even appearance than other bed liners.
