The load guard and side pieces are held in place by the existing factory cleats and push-in automotive fasteners that do not require drilling. The tailgate is held in place by the existing factory bolts and/or screws and push-in automotive fasteners. Some models need to have a quarter-inch hole drilled for them. To eliminate rust issues, a blister pack of professional rust inhibitor is included.
Does water get under the mat? And does it cause rust issues?
The truck manufacturers have spent millions of dollars on perfecting paints for vehicles. Just like the outside of your truck, the bed is designed to shed water. Your DualLiner® does not interfere with the drainage holes provided by the factory. In contrast, a spray-in liner requires your paint to be sanded for proper adhesion (like any other paint), effectively destroying the integrity of the factory paint - and voiding the factory paint warranty. Rust could form if you damage the paint in the bed. However, the DualLiner® provides better protection than any other bedliner. The Zero Skid Floor has strategically placed bumps on the bottom side to keep the mat off the paint and allows water torun out of the factory drain holes.<sup>®</sup>
Can the DualLiner® be used with caps or tonneau covers?
Yes, DualLiner® bedliners are an under-the-rail type bed liner and work with most accessories. We have also cut slots into the top (out of view) to allow for the use of clamps. Most caps and tonneau covers can be placed over the bulkhead piece without an issue. If a better fit is desired the lip can be modified without voiding your Real LifeTime Dual Liner Warranty®.

Will the DualLiner® scratch my paint?
The Dual Liner® is designed to fit tight to the sheet metal. This does not allow air to get behind the liner and cause chafing like a drop-in bedliner.
Do I have to be concerned about static charges building up around gas cans?
The safest way to fill a gas can is off the truck. However, the floor of the DualLiner® is an insulator and will not carry a static charge. All other bedliners can build and carry a static charge - especially when a plastic gas can slides during transit.
Will the bedliner fade or chalk with exposure to the sun, or time?
No, the suns rays will not turn the DualLiner® sides chalky. The polyethylene contains UV resistant chemicals to ensure that your liner stays black without the need of additional color refreshing treatments. The Zero Skid Rubber Floor also has a high carbon black content that prevents fading.
Is the floor a skid-resistant surface?
Yes, the rubber floor is a ZeroSkidTM surface that no other bedliner can come close to matching. A secondary benefit of DualLiner’s® ZeroSkidTM floor is that it provides better dent protection than any other bedliner.
Is it harder to load my truck with a DualLiner®
If you are trying to slide something across the bedliner - YES. But that is the point of the DualLiner’s® design. A bedliner needs to protect a truck during 2 operations.
First, most loading damage is caused by dents (from bumping into the bed) and scratches (from sliding across the floor). Impact resistance of a DualLiner® far exceeds the limited dent protection of a spray-in. Your DualLiner® will resist sliding and is thicker than any other bedliner - complete scratch avoidance.
Second, and where most truck damage occurs, is transit damage - your cargo sliding and slamming around the bed as you travel. With the ZeroSkidTM floor of the DualLiner® there is no sliding, so there is no slamming. No other bedliner comes close!!!
