How Do I Coat My Truck Bed?

A truck bed coating can be a great way to protect your truck bed from scratches and other wear and tear. Not only does it look great, but it also helps keep your cargo safe and secure.

There are many different types of coatings you can use on your truck bed, but the most popular is a spray-on liner. Spray-on liners are easy to apply and provide durable protection from the elements.

Before applying a truck bed coating, you should make sure the surface is clean and dry. This means removing any dirt or debris that may be on the surface.

You should also make sure all rust or corrosion is removed before beginning. Once you have ensured that the surface is clean and dry, you can begin to apply your coating.

When selecting a coating for your truck bed, you should consider its durability, UV protection, temperature resistance, and flexibility. Spray-on liners are generally considered to be the best option as they offer superior protection against weathering and scratching while still allowing full access to the cargo area of your truck.

Once you have chosen the right coating for your needs, it’s time to apply it. Before applying the coating, make sure you read all instructions on the product package carefully. For spray-on liners, it’s best to start with short bursts at a distance of six to twelve inches away from the surface.

You should then move in closer as necessary until you have completely covered the entire surface. Allow each coat of liner to dry completely before adding another one in order for it to bond properly with the surface.


Coating your truck bed with a durable spray-on liner is an easy way to protect it from wear and tear while still allowing full access to its cargo area. Make sure that any rust or corrosion is removed before applying any coating and always read instructions on product packaging carefully before beginning application process. With proper preparation and application, you’ll have a long-lasting protective layer over your truck bed in no time!
