Well I just took off my bedliner and I had paint chips and scratches all over.

The only thing I loaded into my bed in its life was a power washer. And it was only a small 3.7hp one.

So the thing is going to the junkyard if I can't find anyone who wants it by the end of the week.

Sorry just had to bitch. The scratches were ok but the chips were sizes of quarters.

That is the same reason that I took the drop in liner out of mine. I just have a mat in mine now. Also the Bed liner is still forsale.

I've got a mat in mine too. How are you protecting the sides of your bed though?

I not too worried about the sides. I don't haul a lot of suff. If the sides get scratched it don't really matter beacuse after all it is a truck bed.

My '04 was delivered with one in it. I made the dealer remove it & deduct the cost from the truck before I would take delivery. I use my truck as a ~GASP~ truck & don't need things sliding around on that crappy, paint-removing, less-than-worthless piece of plastic. The spray in Rhino-Lining is performing as expected; things don't move around, it's slightly quieter, & even though there are a couple SMALL areas where it pealed/rubbed off there's no rust or paint loss.

I bought my liner when i got the truck. Everyone that knew said to get a drop in liner. Thay appeletaly never take their liners out or don't care if all the bed rusts form the paint rubbing off. I like my rubbmat a lot better. Even my sand bags don't all over the bed. Last year with the drop in they would always slide to the front of the bed when i stoped.

dude, its a truck bed. did you really expect it to leave the bed spotless? if you wanted to keep it from showing scratches and chips, then you should have left the liner in.

I'm not worried about the scraches. I just hate having all my stuff slide around and the bed rusting after a year like the tailgate is beacuse of liner on the tailgate.

No the bed liner is going to the junk yard. I'm for sure keeping my truck til it dies.

I'm putting lava lining as soon as I can get an appointment.

I never wanted the drop in but my father bought it without me knowing so I figure I'd use it. But now sorry its gone. I tried to be nice but sometimes you just can't.

I hate drop in liners. Cargo slides around too much and the stuff that gets under the liner tears up your bed more than just hauling stuff with no liner. I am using a bed mat and I love it.

So you just back up to Mauna Loa and let the lava flow? :D

Sorry, couldn't resist.

BedRug in mine and I love it but if my truck was for work instead of play I'd have a Line-X.

I had the same problem, I took the thing off after a week and it had rubbed paint off the ribs in the floor of the bed.

I waxed it all then put painters masking tape (so it dosen't leave tacky stuff when i pull it) all along the ribs, renforced at the ends with duct tape. Since then I had a tonneau cover put on so I haven't looked under it again.

I'm telling myself it's helping.

I have a pendaliner, not the GM and find that nothing slides anywhere on it.

I've had a pendaliner in my truck for 10 years & 92,000 miles now & the bed hasn't rotted out yet.

I've hauled tools, dirt, slag sand, concrete pavers, etc.. some times as much as 1,600 pounds plus me.

As for my ballast in the winter (2wd) I built a frame that straddles the wheel wells & put my ballast in there. I've never had it move.
