Speaking of MoPar beliners , mine came with the UTR bedliner by MoPar . I
liked it , but the tailgate protector and the front of the bedliner where
it hangs over the end of the bed were begining to scuff the paint .
I took it out and sure enuff , the paint in the bed as well as the wheel
wells and surrounding area are scuffed pretty good from the liner .
I have been wanting one of those sprayed in liners , but I am worried about
devaluating the truck .
Should I just re-install the bedliner and let it rub away ?

negotiation (I spent the entire day negotiating) I was able to get the
dealer down to $20.5K and throw in a Mopar bedliner and bug shield. The
bug shield actually looks pretty cool w/ the mono-chromatic paint job.
