Truck bed liners and truck bed mats are two common accessories for your truck. But with their similar names, it’s exceedingly easy to mix them up. So in this week’s blog, we’ll dive into the differences between truck bed liners and truck bed mats. Would you like to know more? Then please keep reading!
The Lowdown on Truck Bed Liners
So, what exactly are are truck bed liners? These liners provide your truck bed the ultimate protection. Dents, dings and other damages can’t touch your truck bed with a bed liner installed, especially when hauling heavy cargo. The entire flat surface and all the other sides of the bed are well-covered. Different materials are used in the fabrication of truck bed liners. This way, cargo stays put even while in transport, and it’s easier to clean up afterwards when you are done for the time being. Unlike truck bed mats, truck bed liners are meant to be permanent fixtures in your truck. And even though they are more expensive, you do get more coverage and you also have more options for material composition.
The Skinny on Truck Bed Mats
Truck bed mats, meanwhile, are a tad bit different. They can stop cargo from moving around while you are in motion. They can also prevent scratches on your truck, which can be a serious eyesore. Plastic, rubber, and carpeting are some tough, dependable materials that truck bed mats are crafted out of. They are less expensive than truck bed liners, too. However, they don’t offer as much protection for your truck bed. Also, they can be custom-made for your truck, or you can choose a universal fit that can be modified for your truck as well.
So Which One Should You Choose?
In the long run, the choice is yours. Whether you choose a truck bed liner or a truck bed mat, you should consider these two main points: your available budget, and how much coverage you require.
