Whats the best Drop in bedliner? (gonna cost too much for LineX)

I have been trying to research bedliners, as LineX or anything similiar is just to much for a 1993 ranger.

Trying to find something thats over the rail, and has the cut outs for tie downs.

I think the Penda looks good, any other suggestions? (Dont want to spend more than $150 if I have to)

I got a VERY clean all over-the-rail liner at pull-a-part for $25 used. it was out of a 93 and it only had 2 things wrong with it. the one thing was the guy had drilled out holes for the post holes in the bed. and the second was it didn't have cut outs for the tie downs. it was MINT. like new. go look around at JYs.

if you can find a ford factory liner for cheap get it. they are by far the best. they are over the side rails but they go over the back rail. if you find a liner and it doesn't go over the back rail DO NOT GET IT. it will rust out your bed!

go to your local line-x, rhino liner or whatever other spray in company is near you and ask them if they have any bedliners, most of the time it costs them money to get rid of them when after they take them out so they might just give them away. the line-x dealer here used to.

lol DIY roll on kit. I hate hate hate drop in liners. Yet I still have one ooo the irony. But seriously local parts store has DIY kits that run about 80 bucks or so. Set aside an afternoon and presto you got a bedliner far better than any drop in one.

this for sure. trust me.

or save up the extra cash for line-x. hands down the smartest and best investment i have ever made for my truck. i use my truck and i love my line-x. i had my truck sprayed as soon as possible, like two months after i drove it off the lot. only reason i waited was the line-x dealer was no where close to the dealer i bought my truck at. my dads, on the other hand, had the dealer drive the truck right to the line-x dealer and had them spray it before he took delivery of the truck.

the rhino lining in my truck is by far the best investment ever...those drop in liners warp, shift, and will trap water underneath next thing you know you have a bunch of rot in your bed

I dont have the tools to sand down the bed to prep for a DIY liner. Is that necessary?

if your bed is pretty much rust free. the prep is just scotch pad the paint to ruff it up. Then clean it and paint.
