Post #1  Post subject: Bed Liner
PostPosted: Tue Feb 13, 2018 2:55 pm 
My current truck is a 2013 Nissan Frontier that I got used. It came with a professionally sprayed in bed liner. I don't know if it's factory or P.O. installed. My problem is that it has NO slip resistance. Everything slides all other the bed. I suppose it needs to be re-done. Has anyone ever had to have a liner re-installed? Can they just spray over the old one or will it have to be stripped out in someway?
Thanks
Richard

Last one I had like that I just bought the thinnest rubber bed mat I could find and put it in the bed. Cost $50 I think and worked good. Gave the bed a little extra protection, deadened the sound of stuff in the bed and stopped stuff from sliding around. Was a lot cheaper than getting it resprayed with something with texture in it.

Think I would just go with a bed liner too.

I've had several so called no-skid liners. And none of them worked like advertised. I even painted one with a commercial grade extra course no-skid paint. Was a waste of time. Either get the rubber liner or get ever how many spreader bars you need and be done with it.... :yep:

I like a bed mat and I do not buy the made for the truck mats. I go to tractor supply and get a stable mat. Much cheaper, much thicker and really cushions the bed. Non skid too. They are very heavy and hard to move around.

Thanks y'all. My last truck I did a Herculiner roll on and while not totally skid proof, it did a LOT better than what's in my current truck.

I took an entirely different approach with my trucks.

My Tundra came with a sprayed in BL, but I got tired of my 30 packs of beer sliding around. The sidewalls have raised humps that accommodate 2 X 4 boards. So I made a blocker.

Image

There are 2 more humps close to the cab. When I take an ice chest, I just move the blocker to the front.
I used loop Velcro on the ends of the 2 x 4's to prevent scratching.

Image

It wasn't this simple with my old Chevy. No humps in the sides to hold the 2 X 4's. So I got creative.

Image

I used two of the existing bolts at the rear of the bed to secure it.
