    Correct. It went from a business partnership with favorable dealership fees (commission) to outright extortion (royalties). Unfortunately, the greedy investment firm, and its president, are too arrogant to realize, without dealers, there’s no company. Horrible situation for franchisees who’ve invested their entire lives. The good thing is nearly all the franchisees have dropped Line-X and filed a class-action lawsuit, which has resulted in Line-X losing nearly all its revenue, after the investment firm paid ~$1B for the Line-X company. That should serve as a lesson to the new investment firm and president. The franchisees sent out a warning, but, the greedy and arrogant decided to fu<k around and find out.

    Steeltoe What's my move?

    I've also never seen a spray liner on the side of the highway after it flew out the back of someone's truck.

    well because a spray in liner is like emotional damage...you either have have to scrape it off or carry it around for the life of the vehicle...lol.
    Like the dimwits that sprayed bed liner OVER my painted bed rails and tape a crooked line down the fender. Not only was the job "free" but cost them $850 extra with an estimate from a body shop to undo their ignorance. Then Dodge ended up buying that heap back

    Bed mats are nice, on top of the spray in lining...

    I had one in the dodge due to people kneeling in there to load and unload race stuff, no need for a mat for anything else.

    Oh yeah, the answer to the original question is always spray in, never ever ever drop in.

    I priced a set of floor mats for a GMC Sierra, I just couldn't pay close to $300 for floor mats:(

    Did you not read my post? The bed mat is softer to kneel on.

    Spray in, then put the drop in on top of it, then put a bedrug over the drop in. Ultimate protection. :D

    I did the drop in Bed liner with a Tonneau Cover to prevent rust… I needed it all to slide for stand up Jetski’s in and out at the boat ramps..

    There's an anti slip product called Sharksgrip that works well at providing traction.

    Yeah...thats part of the problem when its that hard (thats what she said). The issue with aggressive grit like sand, quartz, etc is its murder on your hands, knees etc when you have to touch it. and it also isnt fun to wipe up spills on.
    The sharkgrip is less aggressive but also not as grippy....especially when wet. You can use a bed rug or something like that for some grip or if its bad enough get a clear top coat and apply it with some grit in it to improve slip resistance. Also for strategic slip resistance, get some skateboard deck grip or similar and put down patches so you can climb in and out without fear of slipping.

    As mentioned before, stay away from a drop-in liner. As otherwise, you will need to permanently have one. Water and grit will get underneath them, and turn into a polishing compound that grinds away the paint and galvanizing, leading to a rusted out bed. The water gets trapped underneath, and doesn't evaporate. So a few years down the road your bed is a rusted up piece of shit.
