Default 2019 Ram Bedliner

I'm liking the new Ram 1500 more and more. I'm checking dealers inventory and I see that there is a cargo package that includes a spray on bedliner but I don't see a drop in bedliner. I checked the Mopar accessory website and aftermarket sites and it seem that no one makes a drop in bed liner yet. There is the carpet type but not a hard plastic liner. Am I missing something ?

You couldn’t give me a hard plastic liner, though I do like them on the tailgate so stuff slides easily when loading. $50 or so rubber mat for the bed floor and call it a day.

Nothing wrong with a spray in, but I fail to see the value. I use the bed of my truck harder than nearly anyone else I know, and it’s just fine with 215k on the clock with just a rubber mat.

WeatherTech makes a mat that drops in and is held with Velcro, but it only goes up the side about 3-4 inches. I more worried about stuff sliding around and denting the inside (sides) of the bed.

Have you called some aftermarket truck shops in your area? They may actually have some and websites may not reflect that?

I see zero benefit to a plastic liner. It bows after time. Water gets under it.

My 2013 ram came with a spray. I use my truck, not heavily but 6 years later and it looks pretty dang good. Stuff doesn't slide that well either. Stays pretty still for the most part

And they vibrate under normal use wearing the paint away under it...a place you're not likely to see until it's rust.

Just curious as to why you would want a drop in bed liner rather than a spray in bed liner? I'm my experience a sprayed in bed liner is superior in every way, by far.

the spray in is technically line-x, just thinner than what the aftermarket applications are sprayed.

Spray all they way. Plastic liners always crack.

My 2017 Ram 1500 came with the spray in bed liner. I chose to install a Rugged Liner. It came with cut outs for the LED lights in the bed. Spray in is nice but hard to keep clean. I also have a cap on it. My 2001 F150 had a Ford liner. I gave it to my son and the liner is still in good shape.

ditto, my preference is a spray in with a full BedRug. Like mentioned above the drop in ones wear away the paint, trap moisture and cause rust.

I have had spray in and drop in ones. I prefer the look of the spray in and the function of the drop in. On the spray in if you toss big rocks or concrete blocks etc. the bed can get dented. Also it is almost impossible to slide stuff into the bed with the spray in ones. I use my truck bed like a truck bed and have found that the drop in works best for me. I actually got a brand new one a guy was selling on craigslist 'cause he was putting in a bedrug. Only cost me 50 dollars. I had previously picked up a bedrug piece for the bottom of mine and it was made for a bare bed. I put the plastic drop in one in and then added the bed rug on top, fastened it down with plastic christmas tree fasteners. Best of both worlds for me. I leave bedrug in most of the time to prevent sliding around of cargo and if i need it to slide I just pop it out. For me the spray in is a waste of about 500 dollars and I would never see it anyway as I have a cover.

Thanks SA... those two were not on the Mopar website yesterday.... they only had up to 2018
I've had both the spray in and the drop in type. Both worked OK, the plastic made it a bit easier to slide things in and out. I'm going to lease so longevity isn't really an issue.

The final deal clincher on my most recent truck was LineX spray-in bed-liner. That was after lots of back and forth, walking away, several of the infamous trips to the manager.

Salesman walked back with his hand out, told me he would coordinate the job at my convenience with the local LineX place and did.

I had the plastic in an F150 for 15 years with no issues and very heavy bed use, thought it was great. I really like the spray. I have a steel bed Chevy but might go plastic with the aluminum bed.

If someone dropped off a free brand new plastic drop-in liner on my doorstep it would be on the curb for trash pick-up the same day. Line-X, rubber mat, or nothing but no way is a plastic drop-in liner going in my truck.

The custom fit thick rubber mats for about $80 work really well if you don't want a spray-in liner

Get the Ram Box option. My prior 2 trucks had drop in liners. My current one has the spray in. Spray in is 100x better.

Also, do not rule out a Quad cab vs. a Crew cab. I went with quad cab to get more truck bed. Yes the rear seat is not as roomy as the Crew cab, but it's not that bad. Having a few extra inches in the truck bed is a good compromise. I'm never back there anyway.

Now if they have you an option for a sun roof, jump all over that. I miss having one from my prior 2006 Toyota Tundra (my son has it while at college).

Ram makes a 6.5' bed with crew cab too, no need to sacrifice cab space.

I have a 2019 Ram with a drop in Mopar bedliner. It is not slick and shiny. Has a rough textured surface and is not slick like the old style. I really like it.
