What is the BedRug?
The BedRug is the most unique and innovative truck bed liner on the market. Despite the plush appearance, the BedRug is NOT carpet but rather 100% polypropylene (basically plastic), making it rugged enough to stand up to any punishment you put it through and at the same time, it's gentle enough to protect your most precious cargo. From gravel and cinder blocks one day to antiques and camping equipment the next, the BedRug handles it all.
What's the difference between a drop-in plastic bedliner and the BedRug? Don't they both protect the truck bed?
Drop-in plastic liners certainly offer impact resistance however they have many inherent limitations you should be aware of. For starters, they require drilling holes in the bed to properly secure the liner to your truck. We've all seen the stray bedliners laying in the median of the interstate, a consequence of not securing the liner properly. In addition, plastic liners shift and vibrate over time causing scuffs and abrasions to your truck bed finish. The BedRug uses closed-cell foam which is non-abrasive and will not scratch the finish of your truck and installation is done without drilling holes. Put simply, the BedRug can be used for years and when removed, your bed looks like it did the day you bought the truck. Of course there is also the issue of skid resistance. Most drop-in liners offer little to no skid protection. Hit the gas pedal and your cargo goes crashing toward your tailgate. Hit the brake and it slides forward toward the cab. The BedRug grips your cargo and holds it in place. Drop-in liners are not only rough on your cargo but they are also rough on your knees when climbing in to access your cargo. The BedRug offers 3/4" of foam padding to provide you with a loading surface that is simply unmatched by any other liner.
Spray-in liners seem to be pretty popular. Aren't they the top of the line?
Spray-in liners have become very popular as an alternative to the drop-in style liners. While a spray-in liner won't scuff your bed with day to day use the way a plastic liner does, the entire bed finish of the truck must be scuffed with a sanding wheel or an etching solvent applied in order for the spray liner to adhere to the bed. That's right; you are actually destroying the paint finish your "liner" is intended to "protect". In some cases, this process will void the factory paint and corrosion protection. In addition, spray-in liners must be applied by a technician and therefore the quality of the job will vary from shop to shop. Let us not overlook the final and most important point which is that a spray-in liner does nothing to protect the bed of your truck leaving your bed susceptible to dents, scratches, chips, fading and oxidizing leaving a permanent reminder of the lack of overall bed protection.
Why should I buy a BedRug liner when I can buy a drop-in or spray-in liner cheaper?
Under use, hard bedliners vibrate against the paint they're supposed to protect, actually scuffing it and ruining the paint's shiny, rich finish. The BedRug lifestyle liner, however, is backed by a non-abrasive foam, which will not abrade the paint. Your truck bed will always look as good as the day you bought it! The BedRug lifestyle liner is designed to protect your valuable cargo, like sports equipment and camping gear, too - not just your truck.
What if I buy it and don't like it?
Try the BedRug for 30 days. If you don't agree that it's the best truck bed protection system on the market, you can return it for a full refund within 30 days.
Is the BedRug difficult to install?
No. Many truck owners choose to have their BedRug installed by a local dealer but the BedRug is easy for one person to install in less than an hour, using only basic hand tools and isopropyl alcohol.
What if I have problems with it? I'm worried that it won't stand up to what I use my truck for.
The BedRug material is fade and UV resistant, impervious to chemicals such as bleach, diesel fuel and even battery acid, and because it is made with closed-cell polypropylene foam, it will not mold or mildew. You can buy the BedRug with confidence, because it carries a limited lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects.
The BedRug looks soft. Will it stand up to the demands of my construction business?
The BedRug can take on gravel, mulch, building materials - even battery acid - without any bad effects.
What happens if the BedRug gets wet? Will water get underneath the BedRug and cause my bed to rust?
Much like a life vest, BedRug's closed-cell polymer construction can't hold water - it runs right off. The paint in the bed of your truck is designed to shed water the same way the rest of the paint on your vehicle does. The BedRug works in conjunction with your factory drain holes to remove any residual moisture. Unlike spray-in liners which scuff the paint before application and drop-in liners that can scuff and scratch the bed with use, the BedRug's non-abrasive backing will not compromise the integrity of your paint and in turn will not cause your truck bed to rust.
Can the BedRug be removed? Will it transfer to a new truck?
As funny as it sounds, some people do get mighty attached to their BedRug. Because of our no- drill installation, the BedRug is easily removed and you can take it with you, providing you're taking it to the same model of truck. It requires only an inexpensive installation kit and some simple tools to install it in your new truck.
My dogs are rough on my furniture at home. I'm worried - will the BedRug stand up to their abuse?
BedRug is a dog's best friend! Not only will the BedRug resist anything that your pets can dish out, but it's the most pet-friendly bed protection system on the market! BedRug's tough, woven polypropylene material is also skid resistant, so if you corner a little too fast, you don't have to worry about your pet's cage sliding around in the bed. Most importantly, the BedRug can be rinsed out with a garden hose or power washer making clean up a breeze.

I want to put a truck cap, lid or tonneau on my truck to cover the bed. Can I still use my BedRug?
The BedRug is the perfect companion to any truck cover. When partnered up with a cap, lid or tonneau cover, the BedRug converts the bed of your truck into one large "trunk". BedRug's gray color matches up perfectly to the liner used by most cap and lid manufacturers.
Can BedRug be installed with my 5th Wheel Hitch or Gooseneck Hitch?
Absolutely! Simply cut section of BedRug Floor with razor knife about the 5th wheel hitch where it actually contacts the sheet metal. Never bolt 5th wheel hitch on the surface of BedRug as the BedRug is a compressible material and the bolt fastening torque may loosen over time. Always bolt 5th wheel hitches metal to metal.

A beavertail references the back four feet of a trailer in which there is a gradual slope in the floor to assist with the loading and unloading of wheeled cargo. Most race trailers are equipped with a beavertail while standard cargo trailers generally have a flat floor. To check if your trailer is equipped with a beavertail, measure from floor to the ceiling at both the front and back of your trailer. If these measurements are different you have a beavertail and a small piece of TrailerWare material can be spiced into this area for a nice continuous look all the way to the floor. Simply measure and cut triangular pieces and apply adhesive to both the wall and backing and press into place. Remember to match the material grain to the wall for a seamless appearance.
