if you are worried about tossing wood in any bed, take an old sheet of plywood with you

the drop in liners are great until you pull them out & see all the rust & or stains, in between the metal & the plastic, from water & condensation

Hey Murray, do those come in a kit, plans or do you just fab it up yourself? If so, do you have any good tips how to make it up?

I agree with most everyone else. Spray in is the way to go!

I believe that Rhino has an option for the "heavy duty" which is sprayed on a lil thicker than the "Standard duty". The one I had was warrantied for life against clipping, peeling, and general defects. The only issue I had was severe fading, which I was able to deal with.

I was told at the time that I had it (I've currently got a drop in, and I had a drop in, in the '08) that there was some sort of cleaning solution/ protectant that was made specifically for the Rhino that would help prevent the fading.

M275sailor: I have been just buying them from Tidy Truck in Lloydminster Sask. they build them right there and install, they run around $400.00 installed.They are made of 3/4 in. good 1 side plywood and stained, at the fender wells they use a tin sheet so you still have the 4ft across. I bolt in what ever tie down eyes I need on the inside, as well they cut out the Manufactures tie down hooks that is usually in the wrong spot. I have found that it is the best protection for the box ,at Resale it is still new. Now go ahead and through fire wood and what ever, no dents,will hard rubberized paint hold up to that and stop accidental denting?

The thing is with "SPRAY IN LINERS" is that they do not stop dents or tears in the metal from occurring, that's why I have a spray in liner under my "TuffGuard" plastic liner, it even covers the tail gate. I've seen some beds with spray in liners with massive dents and even one with a tear. The plastic liners protect the bed from getting those dents and tears.

Im sure in the right climate the plastic liner would work but after freezing its very slippery and brittal if cold enough. Plastic Liner (cost $200.00?) Sprayin Liner (cost $400.00 ?) Just My 3 Cents

I have had two different drop-ins and both Line-X and Rhino. I will never own another truck with just the drop-in. After two years, when I took it out, the bed of the truck was rusted where the vibration of the liner had wore through the paint. Also, if you happen to climb into the bed when it is wet, you better hold on because they are very slippery. I was hauling several bags of sackrete and had to make a quick stop because an idiot pulled out in front of me. I thought the bags were going to come into the cab with me. It did bend the bulkhead at the front of the bed.

The Rhino seemed to be about the toughest of the liners I have had. It was also the least slippery. Things just seemed to sit in place almost regardless of how fast I might stop. Of course things didn't slide into the bed very easily either.

I have had the Line-X in my 2001 since it was new. I like the way it looks (has a better finish than the Rhino), but I don't think it is quite as tough. I have had a couple of nicks in the Line-X but never any in the Rhino. The good thing about both is they have a life-time warranty. The couple of nicks I got in the Line-X were on the tailgate. All I did was take it off, leave it with them one day and picked it back up the next. Respayed and it looked like new.

The spary-in's are more expensive, but if you are going to keep your truck and actually use it as a truck, then it is money well spent. It also helps when it comes to resale.

Hope this helps!!!

When my truck was a week old I sent it over and had a spray liner put in. I had to leave as I couldn't handle seeing the bed sanded so the liner would stick.
