3.5 - Spray In Bed Liners vs. Drop In Bed Liners (All)

This is one of those subjects which vary from owner to owner. This FAQ will
list the pros and cons of both versions, and Tundra owners can decide from
there.

Spray In Liners - Pros
- Provides a non-slip surface
- Does not promote rusting or paint wear in all contact points
- Helps retain resale value
- Can be repaired by reapplication

Spray In Liners - Cons
- Can eventually peel off - leaving bare metal behind
- Can be punctured by tools or other sharp instruments
- Must be installed by a dealer or shop
- Dealer or shop will abrade the clearcoat and paint of the bed to make the
liner material adhere properly

Drop In Liners - Pros
- More durable than spray in liners
- Is harder to puncture through to the bed
- Can be installed by the owner

Drop In Liners - Cons
- Surface is slippery
- Can wear down paint in certain areas
- Rust and dirt accumulates under drop in liner
