Line-X sprays the trucks at my dealer if they add it to the trucks right now.

True you can get an aftermarket liner at some dealers but you'll be able to get the Ford bed-liner at any dealer. Sure, the spray in bed-liner companies will survive --- but there is no doubt a loss of 100K - 300K customers per year will hurt them. I expect GM and Dodge to follow and offer this as well.

Thats what I did

Told them to throw in a bed-liner (spray-in) and will do the sale, no haggles brought it back next business day and diffinitely enhanced the truck and looks alot better then painted bed, first mod for sure, increases the value as well. oh and I got the Inyati spray bed-liner lifetime warranty as well. www.Inyati.com

"but there is no doubt a loss of 100K - 300K customers per year will hurt them."

They can cut the markup and chase business like trailer and equipment coating. As a consumer I'm fine with some downward pressure on their high markup business.

It might hurt it some but there is a lot of vehicles still out there without a liner.

The article mentions Nissan as the only other manufacturer to offer this. I wonder if Ford will got about it the same way that Nissan does. They bundle it with a bunch of other crap and call it a "package" so that they can charge you even more.

It might hurt the drop-in liner guys the most. About the only reason they exist is because it's a do-it-yourself product. If most truck start coming with factory spray-in there won't be much market for drop-in.

Quality of Ford spray in bedliner??

Looking to buy a 2016 or 17 and I will get a spray in bedliner. The Rhino liner I had put in my 2000 F250 when I bought it new is still almost as good as new for 16 years of sporadic loading and unloading. Does anyone have the spray in liner that Ford offers? How do you rate it. Not looking for ones that have been installed last week and reply "looks great". Looking for review of ones that have been utilized for several years. The cost of the Ford liner is right in line for the aftermarket ones I have priced, but I would go with Rhino again from the 16 years of good service I got from mine. Like some one mentioned, the one stop shopping is appealing, but only if the quality of the liner is there. Thanks for your replies.

The factory installed spray in liner is Line-x. I have a 2002 with color match line-x that has done just as well as the rhino that I had in the 1992 Ranger.

LineX

My 2013 XLT is over 2 yrs old and my LineX bed shows no damage or wear. Constantly drive with loaded bed of heavy Scuba tanks and saltwater wet dive gear. I hope Ford matches the aftermarket quality.

Holy thread revival! 2008! Nice! But it makes sense for the question...

Just because it's already open, my 2010 has one of those Ford sprayed liners in it, and it's still in great shape 6 years later. Mine was sprayed when the truck was shipped from Louisville as part of the transport package way back when...

I walked the dealer all through the price dealings, then was kinda hesitant. Told them I really needed the spray-in bedliner. They asked if I would sign if they threw it in on the deal. $8000 savings and a free bedliner later, I had a new truck.Went back a month later and got my wife a 2wd of the same truck- and another free bedliner.
