    Planning to get a Rhino-type spray-in bed liner on the new GMC 2500hd I've ordered prior to installing a bed salter. But I'm wondering whether or not a plastic bed liner would be better since I also use the truck in summer for maintenance work. Soil/mulch/grass/leaves would slide out easier with a traditional plastic bed liner.

    What do you think?

    DON'T use a plastic bedliner with a salter.It will trap salt,and brine under it and cause rust.

    I'd go with the spray in,and then use a bedmat,or cheap plastic drop in liner for your summer work.

    Go with Rhino Lining spray in bed. I had mine done last year on my '02 Chevy 2500HD and I am really happy I did. They are tough, very durable, and has less slippery surface, so there is less load shifting around. Also they keep the truck bed looking very nice and clean. I definitely would go with them again. ;)

    cat320 - my Rhino-Lining dealer charged me around $430 for spraying in my truck 6.5' bed. I think it is a fair deal and you get what you pay for. I am a very satisfied customer. :)

    Thanks guys. Had I have stopped for a second to think about the plastic liner, I'd have realized how dumb that'd be when dealing with salt. :rolleyes: I'll go with the spray-in.
