Mine came with a Linex Liner in it. I like it so far, haven't hauled anything in it yet. I bought an adjustable rod for it so I can strap the bycycles to it. I have seen several drop ins along the interstates, still can't figure how they got out of the bed of the truck.

My truck had a line x in it when i bought it... awesome liner... the DD had a little accident with my truck and i had to get a new box put on... well we don't have a line x dealer in our area.. so i had to have a scorpion spray in done.. and it doesn't even come close in comparison to the line x. has gouges and little chunks coming off already... the line x was indestructable in comparison.

I have a drop in on my 10 year old Duramax. I use a Snug Top Canopy full time. It has worked fine. My drop in is screwed in place with one screw on each side and it has the wheel well cut outs. I have the rubber mat over the entire tailgate held inplace by 5 screws at the top of the tailgate.
I use my pickup to go to the dump a couple of different times each year (yard clean-up) and I remove the rubber mat and wash out the inside with palmolive soap and a truck brush.
No real wear and absolutely no rust.
I did the same exact thing with my 1997 Chev 454 pickup and canopy. No issues.
I will clean out my canopied pickup bed with a hose and palmolive a couple of times per year. I do sleep in the pickup bed on occasion when I take my boat to a couple of different places that are a ten hour drive, each way. So I keep my pickup box / canopy interior clean.
This is the 4th pickup with fiberglass canopy that I have used this way and it works great for me. It allows me the maximum versatility for my tow vehicle unlike the suburban and blazer that I had before these pickups.

I had a Rhino in my Chevy and loved it, when I bought the Tundra it had an aftermarket drop in. That drop in drove me crazy, I was able to sell it cheap on Craig's list and with the cost of the spray in being as high as it was, I went with a Herculiner roll on. It is quite a bit of work getting it prepped and you need the dry time to do it but I can't complain with a cost of under $100.

I bought a used Mazda pickup that came with a drop in bed liner. It rattled and was so slick that nothing stayed in place unless it was tied down. Without a canopy it also let water collect under the liner and by the time I sold it, the bed was covered with rust.

I have a new Tundra with the Line-x and my daughter also has one in her Tacoma. I really like the Line-x and highly recommend it. I also put in a rubber mat so I could shovel stuff out of the bed a little easier.

My biggest complaint about the drop in was how hard it was on my knees. It was like murder to kneel down in the back of the Mazda. Not so bad with the Line-x and even better with the rubber mat in place. I do not have a canopy. If I did, I might look at the bed rug or a drop in liner with a rubber mat on top.

I have a cap on my truck and also vote for the bed rug. Stuff stays pretty much where I put it. It quiets the ride of stuff. Great for crawling on. cleans up like new. Will get it on my next truck.

Have you seen what they do to your new paint to prep for spray-in? I decided to do the prep work myself over the years and bought a nice heavy duty rubber factory bed mat for my current truck. Works great

I had Line-X on my 94 and it held up well for 14 years.
