In order to label something as dependable, let’s first take a look at exactly what the definition of dependable is.
“Dependable”: it is capable of being depended on; worthy of trust; reliable. Some synonyms are: trustworthy, trusty, trusted, and responsible.
As a truck owner for many years I have come to realize the value of a dependable truck bedliner. I usually hold onto my vehicles longer than the average guy and that is why I take the proper steps to extend the life of my truck. I want to keep my truck in the best shape possible not only for resale value, but for dependability and usability as well. Over the years I have seen the truck accessory market change course, from first a “Rubber Mat” then to “Drop Ins” and eventually to “Spray Ons.” The problem that all of these different types share in common is the fact that they all have major drawbacks.
The drawbacks with “Spray On’s” are first that you must in effect destroy the factory finish to allow them to bond, and second they are a permanent application. That means your truck will be altered permanently, as there is no good way of taking an old one out after it has deteriorated.
The main drawback of a “drop-in” is the fact that they are a universal fitting application. Sort of a “one size fits all” different makes of truck that have the same length bed, this leaves less usable space in the back of your truck and provides extra room for the “Drop In” to shift around. Eventually over time the “Drop In” will wear the trucks finish off and allow the trucks sheet metal to rust.
The one major drawback of a “rubber mat” is the lack of protection on the sidewalls, wheel wells and the load guard sections of the box.
These drawbacks led me to believe that there was a better and more dependable way to protect my truck and cargo. After hours of sifting through truck forums I found a post about a new product that had recently been introduce to the market. It was a totally new type of truck protection called the DualLiner. Instantly I was drawn to it because as far as I could tell there were no major drawbacks.
After thinking about it for a week or so I decided that I would like to give the DualLiner a try, and I have not looked back ever since. The concept is simple; there are 4 polyethylene custom fit panels that hold a thick “Rubber Mat” in place on the floor of the bed. Because each panel is formed to the exact contour of the sheet metal of the specific year, make and model of truck it is protecting there is no risk of chaffing, while at the same time providing unparalleled protection against dents and scratches. The DualLiner is also covered by a “Lifetime Warranty” proving it will outlast the truck. You really can’t get much more “Dependable” than that.
Thanks to many advances in manufacturing technologies, the ability to make the best bedliner on the market exists. DualLiner uses computer design, precision tooling, and a state of the art facility to set themselves apart. It is clear to see how the other types have fallen short in many different areas, thus making the DualLiner the most dependable bedliner ever.
