Removing drop in liner

I have a quick question. I am thinking of removing my drop in liner. My truck is a 97 F150 Supercab short bed. For all i know the liner has been there since 97. I've been told that my bed is all rusted under the liner. I took a flash light and looked and didn't see any rust from what I saw. I even rubbed my finer where the paint has been worn down, and felt no rust.

Should I remove the drop-in? I bought a rubber mat to put in place to keep items in place.

You will probably see some rust in spots where water was trapped between the liner & the bed. You could always put the liner back in if you don't like the way it looks.

Thanks for the reply. I might just do that then. The only problem I am going to hate is that I possibly might have to remove my tonneau cover to get the liner out. I don't plan on doing that till spring. My dad says wait till then, if it was me I'd go do it right away, even though it's only 25deg here in MN.

I'd listen to your dad (hope my daughter heard that) The liner will be more flexible and easier to work with on a warm sunny day

Tis true it would be easier on a warm sunny day. Plus you can't do a dang thing in the winter with gloves on or off.
