What Can I Use to Coat My Truck Bed?

Coating your truck bed is an important step in protecting your vehicle and making sure it lasts for years to come. There are a number of different options available for coating your truck bed, such as spray-on bed liners, roll-on bed liners, and drop-in bed liners. Each one has its own benefits and drawbacks, so it’s important to weigh all of your options before deciding which is best for you.

Spray-On Bed Liners – Spray-on bed liners are one of the most popular options for coating a truck bed.

They provide superior protection against rust, corrosion, and any other damage that may occur due to everyday use. They also create a non-slip surface that prevents cargo from sliding around during transport. The downside to spray-on bed liners is that they can be expensive and time consuming to install.

Roll-On Bed Liners – Roll-on bed liners are a cheaper alternative to spray-on bed liners. They provide good protection against rust and corrosion but may not last as long as a spray-on liner.

However, they are easier to apply and can be done in just a few minutes with minimal preparation work required.

Drop-In Bed Liners – Drop-in bed liners provide the same level of protection as spray-on or roll-on liners but with less prep work involved. They are easy to install and come preformed in various sizes so you can find one that fits your truck perfectly. The downside is that these types of bed liners don’t always provide the same level of protection against rust or corrosion as other types do.


When it comes time to coat your truck bed there are several options available. Spray on, roll on, and drop in are all viable choices depending on the level of protection desired, cost, and ease of installation. Ultimately the choice should come down to what works best for you and your truck’s needs.
