If your pickup truck is a few years old and has a drop-in bedliner, you might think your truck bed is protected from the outside elements. But you just might be wrong. If your bedliner has been in place for more than two years, you should inspect it immediately. A drop-in bedliner is hard plastic that sits on top of your truck bed. However, it’s not equipped to prevent debris from getting underneath it. That’s why you should inspect it periodically and make sure that it’s in good shape.
For example, the drop-in bedliner itself can scratch your pickup bed. It’s constantly shifting and can rub against factory paint and even wear it off. There are truck bedliners that don’t skid and slide around and can prevent scratches and chipped paint.
If you’ve ever hauled mulch, shrubs, gravel or anything with small pieces like screws or nails, chances are you’ve got debris captured underneath your bedliner. That debris can sit under your bedliner and can’t escape. As a result, it can capture moisture which can lead to rust.
Some drop-in bedliners block access to your truck’s built-in drain hole, which can also lead to rust, rot and decay. Water needs to be able to flow out of your truck bed like the factory intended and some bedliners just don’t allow it.
