    diesel pre treatment before we leave----during the hauling every 5 or 6 loads we have a backpack sprayer with glycol (pink RV) antifreeze and we give a quick coating and that works well. we do a lot of sub work and some of the clients don't like the idea of the diesel so thus the pre-treatment......

    Plastic liner in the bottom, and on the sides- no problems anymore.

    I have used diesel before but the snow will still stick. I think that maybe the first load takes most of it out with it. I haven't tried the anti-freeze though. I'd like to see how well that works. A lot of it also depends on the temps. If it is super cold and the snow doesn't melt then re-freeze to the bed, it will come out pretty easily. On the flip side, if it is warm enough to not freeze to the bed.......

    What does it cost to line the bed? Spray on or sheets of poly?

    There's a sponsor that used to roam around here that had a product called plow slick, may try that, not sure if anyone had luck with that

    Fluid film may work as well. Depends how often you need to re apply it because that could get expensive
