If you recently purchased a new pickup you might consider protecting the trucks’bed with a BedRug before you bunch with cargo the first time. Even the simplest use can cause the beds surface to suffer from scuffs and scratches. If you doubt me trying jumping through to the tailgate and walk around in the truck bed a bit and then inspect the surface. You’re sure to see scuffs and scratches inflicted upon the paint just from the sand that’s present on the soles of one’s shoes or sneakers.
There are several common methods to protecting a trucks bed Spray on bed liners, plastic drop in bed liners and rubber bed mats are three choices that are commonly seen. spray on bedliner All of these are good choices and are certainly better than not protecting the bed at all but all three likewise have qualities that could be less than ideal for your use. Rubber bed mats don’t protect the sides, wheel wells, bulkhead or tailgate, drop in bed liners are usually pretty slippery and tend to maneuver around freely in the bed causing scuffing beneath the liner, and spray on bed liners require the bed to be scuffed up prior to the application of the liner material.
You might do not have heard of a BedRug bed liner before but you must at the very least give it some consideration before purchasing a significantly less than ideal treatment for protecting a truck bed.
The first secret I want to tell you about BedRug bed liners is that although its name has the word “rug” in it’s name it is not made from a rug, or carpet or fabric of any type. Surprised? I understand I was surprised to find out that the fuzzy exterior is actually made from the exact same polypropylene plastic as a regular drop in bed liner. Since the attractive surface consists of a plastic-type it could easy resist water, gasoline, oil, and even acids! I had a client who spilled a 5 gallon container of bleach on his BedRug bed liner recently and beyond a small odor the BedRug showed no sign of the unfortunate incident.
Climbing up into your trucks’bed is a joy once the bed has been outfitted with a BedRug. Your knees will thank you for the soft foam backing that’s shaped to fit the hills and valleys of one’s cargo bed. Don’t be concerned that the foam will take up rainwater and hold it against your truck beds paint because the folks at BedRug have forseen this and opted to utilize a closed cell foam which sheds water.
When you open the box that the BedRug is shipped in you will find three items inside. You’ll receive a floor and tailgate piece, a part and bulkhead piece and a mounting kit.
Installation is easy and easy and no special tools are required. Simply zip the medial side panels to the ground with the provided zipper. Now that’s clever and effective. Once you’ve completed that step the velcro tabs could be installed to the BedRug in the places specified. After cleaning the truck bed thoroughly lift the Bed Rug in to place. Peel off the velcro backing tape and stick the tabs to the bed and tuck the BedRug beneath the bed rails. You’re done!
BedRug liners are great for transporting fishing gear, boating equipment, diving equipment,tools, camping equipment and anything else you are able to think of. The soft fuzzy surface protects your gear and acts well as a low slip surface so everything stays set up when pulling up to a stop sign. Cleanup is really a snap too, just get up in the bed with a water hose and blast away. If you ever want to get rid of the BedRug, remember it’s only held set up with the velcro tabs so you understand it is going to be quick and easy.
