If you recently purchased a new pick up you might consider protecting the trucks’ bed with a BedRug before you bunch with valuables the first time. Even the simplest use will cause the beds’ surface to suffer from scuffs and scratches. If you doubt me trying jumping up on the tailgate and walk bedliner around in the truck bed a bit and then inspect the surface. You’re sure to see scuffs and scratches inflicted upon the paint just from the sand that is present on the feet of your shoes or shoes.
There are several common methods of protecting a trucks bed Aerosol on bed liners, plastic drop in bed liners and rubber bed exercise mats are three choices that are commonly seen. All of these are good choices and are certainly better than not protecting the bed at all but all three also have qualities that might be less than ideal available. Rubber bed exercise mats do not protect the sides, wheel bore holes, bulkhead or tailgate, drop in bed liners are generally pretty smooth and tend to maneuver freely in the bed causing scuffing under the liner, and aerosol on bed liners require the bed to be scuffed up prior to the application of the liner material.
You may do not have heard of a BedRug bed liner before but you should at least give it some consideration before purchasing a less than ideal solution to protecting a truck bed.
The first secret I want to share with you about BedRug bed liners is that although its name has the word “rug” in it’s name it is not made from a carpet, or carpet or fabric of any type. Surprised? I know I was surprised to learn that the unclear exterior is actually made from the same polypropylene plastic as a regular drop in bed liner. Because the attractive surface is constructed of a plastic-type material it can easy resist water, propane, oil, and even acids! I had a client who built a 5 gallon container of bleach on his BedRug bed liner recently and outside of hook scent the BedRug showed no sign of the unfortunate incident.
Climbing up into your trucks’ bed is a delight when the bed has been outfitted with a BedRug. Your knees will thank you for the soft foam assistance that is designed to fit the slopes and valleys of your valuables bed. Don’t be concerned that the foam will soak up rainwater and hold it against your truck beds paint because the folks at BedRug have forseen this and chose to use a closed cell foam which outdoor storage sheds water.
When you open the box that the BedRug is shipped in you’ll find three items inside. You’ll acquire floor and tailgate piece, a side and bulkhead piece and a hanging kit.
Installation is easy and self-explanatory and no special tools are required. Simply zip the side panels to the floor with the provided zipper. Now that’s clever and effective. Once you’ve completed that step the velcro tabs can be installed on to the BedRug in the places specified. After cleaning the truck bed thoroughly lift the Bed Carpet in to place. Peel from the lime the velcro assistance recorded argument and stick the tabs to the bed and tuck the BedRug under the bed rails. You’re done!
BedRug liners are perfect for transporting fishing gear, marining equipment, deep-sea diving equipment, tools, camping equipment and nearly all food else you can think of. The soft unclear surface protects your gear and acts well as a low slip surface so everything stays in place when pulling up to stop sign. Clean up is a snap too, just get up in the bed with a water hose-pipe and blast away. Should anyone ever want to remove the BedRug, remember it’s only held in place with the velcro tabs so you know it will be quick and easy.
