Drop in Bed Liner

Hi, I'm looking for a used drop-in bed liner for my 1985 F250 long bed, but I don't know when the bed sizes changed and if those changes affect the fit of the bed liner around the wheel wells, rails, etc. I would have liked to have a liner sprayed in, but that can be pricy, especially if you want a good prep job.

All bedliners from 80-96 should fit. I got mine from a junkyard for $40.00. I was happy with it(it covered the rust holes) till I went to put a riding lawnmower in the bed. It was a 48" cut mower, and the year before it went right up in between the wheel wells. After I installed the bedliner, it would not fit. A 4x8 sheet of plywood would still fit, but the stock bed is wider than 48" between the wheel wells, which is nice sometimes.

Thanks, its fun to have a rig that you don't need a fortune to fix up. Also, thanks for the bed liner offer. I guess we both realized that Maryland is a long way for me to drive the pickup.

One thing I want to warn you about is when you use a drop in liner, it tends to trap water underneath and rust the bed out. Ive had experience where a truck had the liner in and the owner didnt even realize it until he loaded it with hay and watched the liner sag in lol.

I think my neighbor and I are still friends, so far. He stops by my garage every once in a while to see what I'm up to. The other day he brought his wife to see what's been happening to their old truck. She was afraid to ask to use it to haul some compost for her garden, but what's a truck for anyways!!??!!

I'm still weighing what to do about a bed liner. I'd rather not have the bed rust out by saving a few bucks with a drop in.

If you want it done right and not have to replace the whole bed at a later time spend the extra few bucks and get the spray in liner.

I have had nothing but drop in liners (all were over the bed rail style) in all my trucks and never had a problem with rust,and the trucks I have seen had the liner put in because of rust,but a spray in liner is nice and stuff won't slide around as much.

I have one of the drop in liners, and it has been there long enough before I got it to make impressions in the bed rails, so now it looks crappy without it. My floor is just fine underneath, I took it out a while back, and other than some dust, it is clean under there. I have plenty of holes for the gooseneck hitch to let things in as well... My truck was used by a local co-op, likely was a spray truck or such, as I have some extra wiring in it and a metal mount inside the cab. It survived their abuse... I don't like how slick the liner is though, it is way worse than the bed alone.
