The spray-in liners are really nice. They last a lot longer than the drop-ins. Some of spray-ins come with a nice warranty also

Not really but, if you're throwing in wood, nothing is going to be 100% effective.

I am not impressed with drop-in's but it is doing it's job until we decide what true, permanent route to go.

Cool drop in or spray

I have a drop in on my truck and it does just fine. Eventually I would like to get a spray on, maybe by rhino lining, just because of the added durability.

I have a drop-in and hate it (came with the truck from the dealer). I'll deal with it for the time being because other mods are more important, but eventually I'll get a spray-in. I've had both and I'll choose a spray-in any day over a drop-in.
