Default Bedliner

What do yall recommend for my Ranger - a factory bedliner (I've heard it can cause rust underneath) or a spray-in (maybe a bit more expensive)...???

Thanks!

don't bother with a drop in, or a line x. the drop in i had when i got the truck scuffed the crap out of the paint in certain areas, and they're now rusting. i don't have any bedliner in there now, but every line x i have seen has chipped off in multiple spots.

The drop in liner I had would expand and contract with the temps.
It would bow up in the summer and then wouldn't lay flat when it cooled off.

Make sure you pay the extra or talk them into it for free to get it sprayed over the rails too. you will love it. keeps the top of the bed from getting all scratched up:

like so:

sounds good. I am going to get it done by Line-X. I'm going to get the rail-guards too. Luckily I get all my accessories and whatnot at a discount since I work at a Ford dealership. I've got some all-weather floor mats and wind deflectors on order right now
thanks for the advice yall.

and btw, that's a good looking truck dixie_boysles!
