I am not bragging,well maybe I am a little, But my sweet better half gave me the o.k. to make that big purchase that I have been wanting to make. I really feel Blessed to have driven home a 2007 Ford F350 Lariat ,4x4,crew cab dually,diesel,yesterday. It has the 4.10 rear end and all the goodies. It is alot of truck. Now seems to be the time to buy a Ford, with all the rebates or the special interest Ford offers.Now to get all my stuff in it and the most important thing to add, my hitch. I am thinking about having the spray in bed liner installed. Anyone have any thoughts, positive or negative? Also I had the Firestone air bags on my 2 wheel drive 2001. I kept them just in case I needed them. With the beefed up suspension on the 4x4, I don't think I will need them . Any thoughts? If I don't need them I guess I will try to sell them.I will post a picture when I can. Everyone have a good weekend. Now I will need to figure out how to change my signature and my picture at the top of the page. Terry and Renee

Terry,

I have the same setup and I do not have airbags. I do understand that they make the ride softer, they do not increase your carrying capacity.
As far as the spry in bed liner, get it. I have had it in my last two truck and will never be without it. I have had two different kinds, one Rhino this one can't remeber at the moment, and they are equal.
Enjoy your truck and your weekend.

Thanks Tom, I liked the airbags on my 2001, because I could level the ride. I really don't think I will need them on the 2007 because it is a 4x4.And I am for sure going to have the bed sprayed. Do you still use any kind of a bed mat or tailgate protecter on top of the liner?

Terry,

Congrats on the new truck. Sweet ride! Even if it is a Ford ;) Actually, I favor the styling of the Ford truck.

As for the bed liner, as John said, "get it". You won't be sorry. Rhino, Line-X, Vortex etc., they're all more the same than they are different. You'll like any of them.

You'll need to decide whether to do an under the rail or over the rail spray job. I opted for over the rail and am very happy with it. It helps give some grip to the top of the box sides when stepping on them and no worries about paint scuffing when pushing cargo over the sides. My tailgate is sprayed as well.

Mine was sprayed before my hitch was installed. But the hitch was installed right afterwards as the Vortex spray hardens nearly instantly.

I use no other mat anywhere in the bed as it's just not needed.

Now you need to come to the rally in Goshen to show off that new beast of a truck. Enjoy!

Jim The guy that is going to install the hitch said that I needed to have bed sprayed before the hitch is installed. I have the bed caps on the top of the bed and tailgate.Just got back home from showing it off to the inlaws. I sure do like it. I know that coming to Goshen would be a good trip, but I don't think we will make it. We are hoping to go to the local rally in Myrtle Beach this fall. Thanks again. Terry and Renee

I'm sure this will bring out the best replies. I just wanted a little more grunt out of the box,(on take off) than I had with the 3.73, I had in my 2001.After leaving the dealership yesterday I was getting 13.3 mpg. That is better than I was getting with my 2001.Right now Foed is offering a 1500. rebate to previous super duty owners and a 3000. rebate. That helped to convince me that now was the time to buy.

Congrats on the new truck! I'm sure you'll enjoy it. I just picked up my truck as posted earlier and put my rails in yesterday. My last truck had the spray in liner over the rails, both hitch and bedrails. It protects the hitch rails and helps seal everything nice and tight. The downfall is the rails might have to stay in the truck when it's sold. I taped over the holes that the hitch legs go into prior to the spray in job. Again, Enjoy the new ride.

Does the fact that the whole inside of the bed is black look odd? Can't wait to hook our Landmark up behind it and go up a mountain. Once I get my hitch in I think I will just take it for a joy ride around the block just to see how it does.

Terry,

Sorry about not answering sooner, went to a small RV show outside of Detroit. The show was free and I saw several Sundances's for the first time.

Back to the original question. There is no need for a rubber bed mat. My liner is textured and the sliding is minimal. As far as being a black liner goes it does not make a difference. I could have had mine color coded to the way I wanted and I thought long and hard but figured it might be too much tan. My truck is two toned, white and tan, very close to the Landmark colors.

I'm not sure yet, My old truck was black with black liner. The new RED truck will probably be black as well. Wife & I took a vote, it was unanimous. It will be black and over the bed rails.

I'm no expert so logic is my theory. Installing the hitch rails on top of the spray in liner "might" have an effect on the torquing of the bolts that hold the rails to the frame brackets. I just installed the hitch rails in the new truck and all bolts are to be torqued to 85#. Having liner material in between the metal to metal could affect that torque value. Again, I'm no expert. Just my opinion. Best of luck either way.:D

I started to go with a gray shade for my bed liner, but with a white truck and everything else black, I just stayed with black. I have seen a few colors around and they look good. I saw a red one just today. Good show, and a lot of changes in my corporation. I now have the eastern half of Tennessee in addition to the western half of NC, and hired my son as Operations Mgr and brought him into the corp. Now I just have to move his family here from Tallahassee and build them a big log home (4 children). No new truck for me this year!

Clarck, I have talked to some different people that spray in the liners, and they all say that a dark color does well, but a light color does not. I think that I am going with the black. I just don't want to be there when they start taking off the paint from the inside of the bed. I think you told me before that your wife is working on retireing,not sure about that, but I would say that when your son gets in the area,she won't be far behind. Seems like winter has finally come to Alexander County. Bet things are nice and crisp this morning in the mountains. Talk to you later. Terry

Yes, it is the same with stain on log homes. The darker the color the longer it lasts because there is more pigment in there, and that is what blocks the sun and keeps it from fading. Gail's only regret in retiring and moving was leaving the grandkids in Tallahassee. Now, looks like they will beat her up here. Like you said, she won't be far behind.

Terry,

Once you have a spray-in bed liner, there's no going back as it isn't removable. That said, you want good adhesion, no matter what.

So that you don't have to see it done to your truck, here's what Dan's in Elkhart did to my month old bed just prior to spraying in the liner. They used some air-powered tool that did a super-scuffing job on the paint. The white must be the Dodge factory primer showing through. The panel sitting on the bed is that removable panel from the inside of the tailgate. They sprayed it separate from the tailgate itself so they would not end up being bonded together forever. They also plugged the drain holes in the front of the bed before spraying.

01-18-2007, 05:12 AM
Thanks Jim, I know that the bed will look better longer with the spray in liner, than if I do nothing. Thought about a drop in liner,but even with the pad they put underneath,I sure the bed will still scratch an rust, and then you have the cut and for the hitch rails. I also looked at what they call a bed rug. I liked it but again you have the cut and fit for the rails, and although the bed rug dealer told me moister would not be a problem under the rug,I think it is a concern. So, if I am going to do something to protect the bed,I would say the spray in liner is the way to go.

Ken Washington
01-18-2007, 10:34 AM
I think this is a good idea if you are not going to put a cover on the bed. I do not like bed liners at all and nothing will stay put (too slick). I have a rolling cover and a bed mat that I cut out the rails for the hitch. This gives me a dry area to haul stuff when not pulling. This is what works for me!

Hey Guy's
I've read all 5 pages, I thought while reading that my bed liner is probably alot older than any of yours (ya'll have much newer trucks). I got mine sprayed in 2000, before that I had a under rail bedliner. Anyway in 2000 we went 5th wheel, I had rhino liner put in. Way back then there weren't all the companies like now. Since then my liner has "grayed" up just a tad bit. It is still gripy somewhat. When I detail my truck, to make the bed look good I spray on some tire shine lightly. "BAM" it really pops then. Lighter colors tend to yellow over time (I was told). My next truck will be garage kept, this one never was. I don't know what brand liner I'll get on the new truck, there are many brands around home.

Just got back home from taking our Landmark around the block for the first time with our new truck. I am very,very pleased with the results. I have a fairly steep grade coming out of my driveway,and from a dead stop the truck pulled out well.The 4:10 rearend did its job. Much better than the 3:73 in my 2001 did.Even my wife noticed the difference. I was very pleased with the way the truck towed our Landmark up a very steep mountain near our home, also the way the engine brakes you in the tow/haul mode, is amazing. I came down the mountain without even hitting my brakes. Here again my wife even noticed the difference. Normally she says,"oh that's just man stuff."But she bragged on how well the truck did. Needless to say I am one happy camper. Now lets hit the road.

I wish GM would put a 4:10 in the diesel pickups, but not yet. Don't know that I really need it, mine pulls fine with the 3.73. All three mfgs have made some nice changes to their trucks in the last 3 or 4 years. I understand the new Fords really ride good. I'll probably hold off for another year or two before I get a new one, this new office/model home and warehouse is a real drain on the cashflow.

I can't tell you how much this 5 page post has helped me - I just ordered an '08 F450 (I feel faint) - it's the King Ranch in Dark Copper. THe dealer told us we could get the spray in done in matching color, so we wouldn't have a big black bed that doesn't match anythiing. I've never had the spray in , and am so happy to read everyone's positive comments....that and the fact it can be color-coded make it a no brainer.

Oh, one more "can it get any better" observation - we went to where we store our Landmark before we ordered the truck. It appears that one of the "swooshes" on the side is a dark copper color, just like the new truck will be. THANK GOODNESS because God forbid if it doesn't coordinate to Lindsey's taste ;)

Ken,

Dan's Service in Elkhart installed Husky Mud Flaps on the back of my truck. That was 2 years ago. Since then, I've scrapped the bottoms of them up pretty good, backing into parking spots and dragging them (evidentally) over the back curbs.

They are screwed onto the inside lip of my fender wells. Now some screws are looks from backing into snow in my driveway etc.

When I am in Elkhart next month, I may have them install a new set. I like them.

I just got my delivery from Autoanything,which included a set (front & back) of Husky mud gaurds. Unfortunately we were dumped on with 4" of snow, so I will not be working on the truck this weekend.

I have a line-x spray bed and the installer charged me a little extra to add something to keep it shiny. Only time will tell.

I also bought 2 cans of Duplicolor bedliner and did the inside of my wheelwells since they were white and got real dirty. I dont think you have that problem though with the Ford since they have a black plastic wheelwell if I remember correctly.

KenI was confused before. I have the mudflaps that hang down not the molded kind. I did tear off a mudflap on a 1993 dually that I owned by backing up to close to a curb. Did not have a problem with the 2001 or so far with the 2007. Although I know the same thing could happen. The molded type would look good on your truck .I went with the hang down type because I thought they would keep more of the road stuff from hitting the Landmark.I think that it would be a matter of choice.

I also bought 2 cans of Duplicolor bedliner and did the inside of my wheelwells since they were white and got real dirty. I dont think you have that problem though with the Ford since they have a black plastic wheelwell if I remember correctly.

Enjoy the new truckYou are right. The wheel wells are black. I am enjoying the truck very much so far.

Ken, I installed the mud flaps on my 2001 Ford truck and they really were not that big of a deal. They were bought from my ford dealer and they bolted on.
tdharley.. when you get your new tailgate installed post some pictures,I would like to see it.:D

It was not so bad today 45 and sunny, the snow is melting quickly. You might not beleive it but I like the snow

I am going to post pics when I am all done installing all the mods on the truck.

Good news , no leaks from my fantastic vent install even with 4" of snow on the roof. I also installed a remote control for the ceiling fan then worked inside the huse for the rest of the day. Just got out of the hot tub and gonna take a nap.
