If you have the cash, go with Line-X---or if you have about $100, a free weekend, and a warm place to do it, I recommend Herculiner 100%. I put it in my '00 when new, and I've had it in my '04 since it was a week old and I swear by it. Prep is the worst part, but alos the most important part.

I have a drop in bed liner in my 2003 Ranger....no rust holes to report so far and it's 7 going on 8 years old now. Actually my truck's in pretty nice shape for it's age.

I have had a Line-X in both of my Rangers. Overall they are great liners. Very durable and they look great.

That said, I have chipped both of them. They are not indestructible. They do have a lifetime warranty though. I got the first one fixed under warranty with no problems. I haven't gotten around to taking my current truck in to get the chip in its liner fixed.

thanks for all the input guys!
well i cheaped out and bought a rubber mat cuz i realized i wont be really hauling anything to bad. but do these ruber mats get as much junk under them and cause the same damage as the drop ins or are the mats ok? 500 bucks for a spray in bed liner is a litle outta my price range right now but im curious if u think this mat will be sufficient enough.

i have a chevy silvarado for a work truck so my ranger is basically gona be a pavement ***** and not really do anything other then look nice :)

The rubber mats can trap moisture underneath and cause problems for the box.

I know of a guy in a small shop in Aldergrove that put a spray-in liner for me for less than $500. If you're interested his website is here. If you call and ask he can give you a price over the phone. I almost wound up paying between 5 and 6 hundred bucks but I found him first. Whew.

Just every time you wash the truck lift up the mat and spray underneath and you'll be fine. I had mine over a year with no problems. I liked it a lot, helps keep stuff from sliding too.

I got my Line-X sprayed just this morning! Consider this.. Line-X costs like $500 give or take a little. But, it lasts you FOREVER. Drop in = $150 or whatever. But, it lasts a couple years maybe. If you plan on having your truck for a good long while (like me) then you can quickly do the math in your head which one is more expensive in the long run. Drop in is a good short term solution. Line-X is the top of the line.

Plus, my Line-X looks so so so so so sick in my white FX4. So sick.

Go with the spray in! I've got a drop in that came in my Ranger and I hate it! My old truck (an 02 Chevy) had Rhino Liner in it since it was new and still looked new when I got rid of it in 2008. I've spilled battery acid on it, hauled rust one ton axles and literally drug them out of the bed. No damage at all. Cleans up with a water hose. If you use your truck for work, make sure they spray it a little thicker on bed floor. Oh, and Rhino Liner came with a lifetime guarantee. I chip it or tear it up, they fix it.
