Ram Brand Offers Factory Spray-on Bed Liner for Pickups


Chrysler has announced that it will begin offering Ram customers a spray-on bedliner option for its 2010 model year 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks. Dealers will be able to order the factory-installed upgrade beginning immediately.

The spray-on bedliner option will be available on all Ram Truck trim levels (ST, SLT, TRX, Power Wagon and Laramie), all cab sizes (Regular, Quad, Crew and Mega) and all bed lengths (5-foot, 7-inch; 6-foot, 4-inch and 8-foot). Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price is $450.

"Creating a stand-alone brand for Ram Trucks has allowed us to concentrate on how customers are using their trucks and what new features they'd like to see," said Fred Diaz, President and CEO, Ram Truck Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. "Spray-on bedliners are very popular with pickup owners, and we felt this factory-installed, factory-warranteed option would be a welcomed response to our customers. We've taken our new lineup of award-winning Ram Trucks and made them even better."

The new Ram Truck factory-installed spray-on bedliners come with a 3-year, 36,000-mile warranty. They offer owners a number of benefits including a 10-pound weight savings over drop-in bedliners; a reduction in noise, vibration and harshness (NVH); chemical and abrasion resistance; improved in-bed traction and an improvement in perceived value.

"We expect the spray-on bedliner could quickly become one of our most popular Ram Truck options," said Joe Veltri, Vice President of Product Planning, Chrysler Group LLC. "More than 90 percent of all truck owners want pickup bed protection, and spray-on bedliners are sometimes preferred over drop-in bedliners. Now Ram Truck offers both."

Chrysler Group has extensively tested its spray-on bedliners for UV stability and surface adhesion. The protective material is sprayed to a standard thickness of 3mm on horizontal surfaces including the tailgate and 2mm on vertical surfaces.

Let me think about this, Chrysler is bragging about there spray on bed liner option that is warrantied for 3/36,000 when you can get a time proven Line-x or Rhino Liner with a lifetime warranty. Bend over Chrysler.

Yeah, I don't know many guys who would pay more for that than a line x or rhino lining when they come with a lifetime warranty.

Ordering through Dave Smith or any other discount dealers will reduce that cost quite a bit. Sprayliners require good preparation and what better place than the factory. Rhino quoted me $450 here for my longbed over the rail job. Linex was $75.00 cheaper. Not that far off from what Dodge will charge.

Why would anyone opt for this option when you can get Line-x for the same price with a lifetime warranty?

I guess that's your standard marketing from the big three...

Ditto on all the replies above.
$450 for a factory job & short warranty is a joke.

#1 - I would expect the factory job to be MUCH CHEAPER than aftermarket. Heck, if anything it should be on every pickup truck delivered; with a "bedliner delete" being "optional". And that should carry the GOOD warranty.

#2 - I would want more details about the coating itself. I've had 2 Linex'ed trucks and like it. I've heard that Rhino Liner is good. Other brands - I dunno. But bottom line is - all sprayed in liners are NOT the same! What's special about the factory coating? What does it compare to?

TRADED my Dodge for <gasp!> 2009 GMC Sierra SLT 3500 4x4 DRW LWB Crew Cab DMax/Allison.

Does anyone know if the Line-X warranty follows the truck? I bought my Mega used with a line-x bed spray and now its chipping. Like to get it resprayed under warranty.

Hopefully they keep a truck on file by VIN, or maybe the big line-x logo will help.

Thanks
