    Well, my wife said that the bed was dirty and needed to be made...so I did. She then told me that I made the wrong bed oops!!:p I took the bedliner out and wow, just wow. I couldnt beleive how much crap was stuffed under that thing!! I think this is something I should do a lil more often And yes, that is my ugly mug,lol:laugh:

    Leave that plastic bedliner out and get you a thick rubber mat to lay in the bed.
    That plastice liner is hell on a bed. It will make it rust out faster and it rubs all the paint off.

    That is my grandfather's pride and joy. He barely drives it, much less let me drive it, lol

    I am gonna be getting a spray in liner soon. After I saw all that dirt, muclh, grass, etc under there, I wont ever get a plastic liner again!!!

    Spray in bedliner! One of the best things you can spend money on for your truck.

    Is it worth doing both? I like the plastic because its easy to slide stuff on, but then again i dont want my truck bed to rust under the plastic.

    No, it wouldnt be worth it, IMO. It is roughly 500 bucks or so to get a Line x or Rhino liner sprayed in, then what ever a plastic insert would cost. So total would be the best part of $1,000!!!! Not worth it, so I would go with one or the other

    I put a plastic one in my 2007 2500 HD, only because i want the leaves and mulch to slide out easier. I have never had a truck rust through a bed because of a plastic liner but then again the longest i keep my trucks has been 8 years. I think they both have their place.
