I believe sanding the bed is part of the prep work (since it is basically a metal finish) so the installer would probably do it for you, but I'd definitely recommend getting one before your bed rusts out. You never know what's under there

They actually do have a green line-x option, can do colour coating ones. And a cover is always hard the first time. But after that it becomes easier. And they do sand and prep it all down. Just drop it off with the liner in and pick it up with spray liner inside and you never will have to see what was under there.

I agree with what everybody has said, but I thought that I would make it a little clearer just in case you don't quite understand what they are saying.

We sometimes skip over the important bits because we know what we are talking about, and just figure that everybody else does too. You may have in fact understood it, but here you go anyway. LOL......

The lay in bed liners aren't a "bad" thing when you can't get anything else, but a spray in is definitely the way to go.

The lay in liners will fit good and protect your bed in the beginning, but over time there will be water and condensation and other bits of debris that will get caught between the liner and the bed of the truck.

As you can imagine over time as the line shifts back and forth, this will cause wear marks on the bed of the truck. Coupled with the trapped water or condensation, this will get into said crack and eventually cause the bed of your truck to rust out.

Now you could always take out that plastic liner yearly if you wanted too, and inspect the damage. If there is none, then put the liner back in and away you go. However if there are signs of rust then you would be smart to sand it down, repaint it and then put your liner back in.

That's too much work for me and in the long run a much more expensive route to go, rather than have the spray in liner done from the beginning.

If you can afford it then I would have the factory do it, but if you can't, then there are after market kits available that you can do the job yourself.

I hope we have been able to help you out?

I find the plastic bed liners to be very slippery especially in the winter with snow. It would be too easy to slip and fall if you happen to be working in the back of the truck tying things down.
