2015 Chevrolet Colorado: Warming Up to the Spray-In Bedliner
by Ed Hellwig, Executive Editor on September 29, 2015
When we first got the bed of our 2015 Chevrolet Colorado sprayed by LINE-X, I was a little skeptical. To me, getting the bed sprayed just seemed like a way to change the color of the inevitable scratches. I've since come around to the idea.
After using our Colorado to haul a few things and seeing how the LINE-X surface holds up, I think it's a good alternative to a bare metal bed.
It's not only harder to scratch, but the rough surface also keeps things from sliding around. Sometimes that's a bad thing, like when you're trying to slide a palette out, but for most hauling duty it helps.
It certainly looks better than one of those cheap plastic drop-in bedliners. Most people who have asked me about it thought it was a factory option. That's a good sign.
If I bought a Colorado, or any truck for that matter, I would consider something like this. Then again, I don't mind having a scratched-up bed. Makes it look like a real truck. Of course, plenty of people around here think otherwise, so don't expect to see bare beds in our long-term fleet anytime soon.
