Went down to NC on Labor Day and traded my 2012 1500 (with 125k miles) in on a 2017 Rebel. Fancier than I need, but I love the truck, inside and out. I'm looking forward to reading a lot of posts on this forum.

Beautiful truck. I wish I would have been able to get the solid grey. I'm not a fan of the black at the bottom of mine.

Thanks guys. No, it won't be used for "serious" work, but I buy a truck to use it, you could tell that by the bed of the one I traded in. I'm planning on investing in some kind of bed liner for this one (any advice would be welcome :) )


The land is actually my mom's farm (I live about ten miles from her), in beautiful south-eastern West Virginia.

I prefer spray-in liners. Line-X is a very good brand. It's thinner, harder, and follows the truck contours better. Rhino is, too. Rhino makes several kinds. Their "TuffGrip" is a thicker, slightly softer liner, feels more rubbery, more tacky. Helps deaden sound a bit, and I like the extra grip you tend to get from it. Keeps stuff from sliding around quite so much. If you prefer it thinner (for looks) and stiffer, Rhino makes some similar to Line-X.

Both brands need to be heated and pressure-sprayed. Some places don't heat them. But most good body shops should be able to take care of you.

The last time I had a hard plastic drop-in liner, my bed got rusty underneath it from moisture. I won't be doing that again.

I would definitely go with line-x. That stuff is darn durable, looks great, and will last you the life of the truck
