Spray, have had both. Things slide all over the place with drop in. Spray has a rougher texture and things don't slide around. It's tough as nails too. Had the spary in LineX.

Every drop-in bed liner I have ever had ended up in the landfill. Nobody will buy them, and they are nearly impossible to give away.
IMO, they are useless junk! Water gets trapped under them, along with some dust and sand, then every time they wiggle they are scrubbing the paint off the bed. That has been my experience, anyway.
I have no bedliner of any kind at the present time. Everybody I know who has one has a spray-in, and they seem to be very happy with them.
Maybe some day if I get a newer truck, I will look at having the spray in done, if it doesn't already have it.
Then again, perhaps I will save the money. It's a truck, not a family car, truck beds get scratched and dented. Around here, that is a "fact of life".

I'm very happy with the Ford factory spray-in liner. Don't know what the price was... bought the 2010 truck off the lot as the 2011s were coming in. I've noticed the drain holes in the front of the bed are open with this factory liner. I don't have any experience with other spray-in liners but I'd be curious to know if all drain holes remain open.

If your buying your truck and plan on keeping it for awhile go with the spray in. My Line X is holding up just fine after 6.5 years of use and I've thought on a few occasions I may have damaged it just to see it's holding up just fine once I get it cleaned up.

@Blangen I've had no issues with my drain holes. If I have to much dirt or whatever builds up I sweep it out and spray things out. I do get some leaks from the Leer cap and that water drains out after heavy rains with no issues.

If your leasing and want to go cheap get a drop in liner. If you've ever seen what the bed looks like after removing a drop in after a couple of years of use you'd understand the benefits of a spray in.

I have had trucks with both and if you do not want your load to slide, spray in is the way to go, however, I use a bed cover on my current truck with a drop in and will hook things and slide them to the rear with a garden hoe from the open tailgate without opening the bed cover. In this instance, slicker is better. It all depends on how you load and what your needs are.

Had LineX sprayed in 9 years ago and have had no problems. Great product!!! Drop ins will eventually cause rust on the bed underneath.
