The BedRug BedTred Truck Bed Liner: A New Way to Protect your Truck Bed


Remember when spray-in truck bed liners were all the rage? I can’t remember the exact date, but it was sometime between the advent of Ron Propeil’s GLH-9 Hair in a Can Spray and the Snuggie. (I don’t use a calendar, but I can tell the relative date of important events by where they fit on my infomercial timeline.)

Spray-in truck bed liners are a lot like Billie Mays’ the Big City Slider Station—seems like a good idea, but it just doesn’t work out well in practice. The biggest problem? You can’t take it out! It’s there for life, like it or not.

There are some great advantages to spray-in bed liners. Namely, their textured surface helps stop your stuff from sliding around. And, they do protect your bed from scratches. But, that doesn’t really make up for the permanent disfigurement.

I’ve got some good news: we just added a new accessory onto our site that gives you all the benefits of a spray-in liner without any of the drawbacks—the BedRug BedTred truck bed liner. It’s constructed from a 0.25” thick composite material with the same anti-slide texture as a spray-on bed liner. It mounts with a sturdy hook and loop system, so you can take it out without having to break out your jackhammer. And, this BedRug is custom designed for a perfect fit.

Protect Your Stuff With A Modern Truck Bed Cover


After I bought a truck for me and my family, I decided to spend the next holiday in Florida. But I made one mistake. I thought that the stuff in the truck bed is safe without a truck bed cover.

I am 28 and have a great family. Five years ago I married my wife Jasmin in San Diego and just two months later we got our twins Mike and Andrew. Surely it is not all fun and games raising two sons, but I am very proud to have such great guys. They are full of life and always interested in participating in sports like soccer, baseball or just playing a bit with the dog. But what does it mean, if you want to go on vacation with such a big family? Exactly, there is no space in the car to store all your stuff because everyone insists that his toys, games, or books have to be in the car.

So last year, we decided to buy a truck to avoid this trouble before going on vacation. It is a Dodge Dakota and I haven’t been regretting this purchase a second. I love this vehicle and the rest of the family, as well. Honestly in the last year we spent more time on vacation than at home just to have opportunities to enjoy the benefits of this nice truck. But before our first trip with the Dodge I made a mistake. I believed that you don’t need a cover for the truck bed; as long as you pay attention, nobody will steel the stuff in your truck bed.  When I look back, I know how stupid and naïve it was to think that nothing would happen. I think you can tell by my words that something happened. We were stopped in front of a red light in Florida, when three guys jumped out of their car and stole all the baggage in our truck– all our clothes, all sports stuff and of course my wallet with cash and cards, which I forgot in one of the bags. You cannot imagine how frustrated we were when we recognized that we had no chance to get the money and the other stuff back. Of course we had to turn back home immediately, after we spent two hours at the police station in a small town in Florida, whose name I have already forgotten.

After this bad experience with the truck, I instantly decided to buy a truck bed cover for the truck. That is the only way to transfer your stuff safely. And everyone, who disagrees with this, should remember my experience in Florida. So I decided to compare a lot of products and during this market research I recognized that there are a lot of attributes which you should consider before you buy the right truck bed cover. So I found a good one with a tool box that has a continuous hinge and reinforced black power coat lid for superior strength. Another factor, you should consider, is that the Toolbox mounts easily to the side rails without damaging truck bed. So listen to my story and spend a bit money and invest in a good truck bed cover. Avarice shouldn’t impact the benefits of great worry-free vacations.

I found a very good selection of truck bed covers online. I think if you combine the Truck Bed Cover with a BedRug Truck Bed Liner, you will have the best protection for your truck. – Tim Saunier
