Factory-Installed Spray-On Bedliners for Ram Trucks

The newly formed Ram Truck brand announced today it is offering a new factory-installed option for its lines of trucks, namely spray-on bedliner. The bedliner will come with a 3-year, 36,000-mile factory warranty.

Extensively tested for UV stability and surface adhesion, the bedliner offer those opting for it a 10-pound weight savings over drop-in bedliners, a reduction in noise, vibration and harshness (NVH), chemical and abrasion resistance and improved in-bed traction and an improvement in perceived value.

The protective material is sprayed to a standard thickness of 3mm on horizontal surfaces -- including the tailgate -- and 2mm on vertical surfaces.

"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. "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."

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). The price for the new option is set at $450.

"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," added Fred Diaz, Ram Truck CEO.
