- How to Install BedRug Bed Liner on your Ford F-150
If you're looking for a dual purpose bed liner to handle both the softest and toughest cargo alike in your 2015 and newer F150, well, the BedRug's bed liner here might just be worth a look. The BedRug's waterproof and steam proof polypropylene material will cover all four sides on the inside of your F150's bed and will be backed by a limited lifetime warranty against any possible defects. Your price point will be right around the $400 mark, and the site's gonna call this one a strong one-out-of-three wrenches on the difficulty meter. But be sure to hang out towards the end of this video, and we'll show you how it's done. All right, so right off the bat, guys, I know a lot of you might hear that term "BedRug" and think this product is only gonna be for the guys out there running either caps or tonneau covers due to the materials of this product. And while I will say running either of those is not a bad idea, it is not necessary due to the BedRug being completely waterproof thanks to that 100% synthetic material. In fact, BedRug says that the material used in their product is similar to what you would find in a life jacket. So, therefore, it's not gonna hold or retain any water, and, therefore, you're not gonna have to worry about this thing getting funky or moldy on you if it gets a little bit wet. Now, aside from this material being 100% waterproof, BedRug is also gonna state that it's gonna be stain and chemical resistant as well, meaning you can spill oil, bleach, gas, even battery acid on the BedRug itself without having to worry about this staining long term. And if things do happen to get a bit dirty, BedRug claims you can just simply power wash this thing clean and be good to go. Now, I'm sure a lot of people watching this might be shopping for a BedRug as an alternative to maybe a plastic drop-in liner, or maybe even the spray in liner such as a LINE-X for instance. But BedRug even claims that you can stack this or use this with a factory or aftermarket liner of your choice for added protection with your more fragile payload. And I think that's gonna be one of the biggest draws with something like this. I know it might not be for everyone out there. but if you do find yourself doing a lot of hauling with more fragile cargo, maybe stuff that can be prone to scratching or damaging, this is certainly going to be a great step in helping to protect that long term. Furthermore, the base of the BedRug, which I don't currently have on the table with me here in this video, is going to feature a 3/4 inch thick cushion floor. So that's gonna even up the protection a little bit further, especially given your knees a break if you happen to do a lot of work in the bed of your truck crawling around, things like that. Another possibility here, guys, that might appeal to some of you at home is gonna be the cushion bottom would be a great base if you do a lot of overlanding or maybe camping with your particular rig and use some kind of bed-mounted tent. This thing will serve as a nice soft base to help you crash on, again, if you do a lot of camping and actually sleep in the back of your truck. As far as your fitment is concerned, well, BedRug does custom-fit each cover here to the specific application. So once the BedRug is installed and secured into place, you'll notice a very nice fit without any excess bagginess or anything that would otherwise be a possible eyesore. Now, it will install using a combination of 3M automotive tape along with some hook-and-loop style fasteners, which is completely reversible, by the way, if you ever wanted to go in a separate direction. Something that's not always said for a spray in-style liner. Finally, guys, the bed liner here is backed by a limited lifetime warranty in case you ever happen to encounter any long term issues. But now, let's show you what it takes to get this thing in place. So here's our detailed walk-through as promised earlier, along with a quick tool breakdown. Tools used for this install, razor knife, 3-inch strive, extension, T30 torx bit, optional is an impact. All right, the first thing you wanna do is remove your factory tie-down points. There's gonna be one on all four corners. All right, so the next step is to attach our hook-and-loop to the hook-and-loop that's on the tailgate pad itself. And now, BedRug also supplies you with a lot of these 2-inch by 1-inch hook-and-loop strips. We're going to evenly place them on the bottom side of our tailgate. I'm gonna start at the end here. All right, so now that we're in the bed, we're gonna be attaching our hook-and-loop in here. Okay, so this is the bulkhead side or the foremost side of your bed. And on the back side you'll see the supplied hook-and-loop, and there's three sections. There's a top, a middle, and a bottom. For the top section, we're gonna use the supplied white backing hook-and-loop. We're gonna attach that as shown. And then we're gonna take the 1-inch by 2-inch strips, and we're gonna evenly place these on these two strips here. So I'm gonna start over here, work towards the end here, and put one on the top. Go about six inches apart from each other, and do not remove the backing of the tape just yet. And you're gonna do this all the way to the end of it. Okay, the next step is to start attaching your hook-and-loop strips to the bedsides. This is going to be towards the end of the tailgate on this side. So we're just gonna put three, one towards the top, one in the middle, and one at the bottom. Now, we can start working on the inner. Here, we're gonna put one on the end, one in the end there, and we'll work six inches back. And this is gonna be the exact same for the other side of bedrails as well. We're gonna finish it off with one on each of the ends here. All right, so now that we're on the other side, we will repeat the process. All right, now that we have all of our adhesive tape down, we're gonna flip the bed liner over. Okay, now that we're inside the truck, we are going to put the BedRug in there into the corners and get it set backwards and forwards, and left to right, kind of where it's gonna go, and then we can start zippering it in the back. That is right there. You're gonna zip this all the way around. The next step is to peel back this section of it to reveal the bedside of your hook-and-loop. And you're gonna wanna remove this backing, stick it down, hold onto it for about 15 seconds. So let's get started. All right, and we're gonna do the same on the other side as well. All right, now we're on the other side, and then you'll hold this for 15 seconds again. All right, so now that we have the bedside stuck down, we are going to do the forward bulkhead. We're gonna be removing all the red backing and the white that locates it on the top of the bed. All right, so now you are going to stick the BedRug to the bulkhead of your tailgate. And again, you're gonna wanna hold on to this for 15 seconds, and then we're gonna move on to the sides. All right, so the next step is to attach the side of the BedRug to the side of your bed. Same process. Just remove the backing of your hook-and-loop strips, and these are the locators for the rear of the bed.I'm gonna start from the bottom all the way forward and go up. Make sure you're going underneath the top of the bed here, and remember to hold for 15 seconds. You're gonna repeat that on the driver side as well. All right, now, we're repeating the process on the driver side, just removing the backing of the hook-and-loop tape. All right. And lastly, we're gonna move on to the tailgate itself. All right, the last step is to attach the rug to the tailgate, and it's the same process. Remove the backing of these hook-and-loop strips, and what I'm gonna do is position the top just below the top of this tailgate. Hold down that for 15 seconds. And the reason why you want a little bit of gap here is so you have a little bit of play here so you can close that tailgate, and you can see it bunch up there. It's not gonna get caught in the hinge. All right, that's gonna wrap up my install of the BedRug bed liner. For all things F150, keep it here at americantrucks.com.

The BedRug was pretty easy to install. The zippers are a little difficult to zip but I think that's due to the exact fit. I would have given it 5 stars but I don't like how the rug moves and tends to bunch up a bit when sliding heavy loads into it. Heavy being 400-500 lbs. Other than that, it's great and looks awesome.Helpful (1)

Looks and feels amazing
Install was easy. I'm super impressed how soft this is to touch and crawl around on. Lots of padding. I had one spot that took some adjusting to get it folded up under the rail but it wasn't terrible. Very good looking.Helpful (1)

Paired with a lomax trifold cover. Works great
Took a while to install due to needing to wash the bed, dry and wipe down with rubbing alcohol wherever tape would be adhered. It was a little cool when I installed, so the 3M tape did not adhere for quite a while. Directions said that would happen though (I believe they recommend 60 degrees). Looks great, and I have no concern with anything in the bed being damaged in any way.Helpful (9)

Fantastic alternative to a spray in liner.
Looks great. Seems like it’ll be pretty durable. Install went ok, but they need to give you more Velcro. There are also spots that you’ll want to stick down that don’t have the Velcro backing attached, so you’ll have to buy some adhesive backed Velcro to fit it right. The sides came up a little short in a couple spots, leaving a little bit (maybe up to 1/4”) of the bed exposed at the very top. IHelpful (9)

Fast delivery. I was surprised on how easy it is to install. Very durable so far. Happy with my purchase.Helpful (13)
My truck bed has lights on each side near the tail gate, is this a big job cutting to expose the lights???
Yes, modification/cutting would indeed be needed.
I didn’t see that you put the tie down hooks back on, are the holes for that or do you need to punch through the liner?
Can this mat be placed over a bed liner
No, this cannot be placed over an existing liner.
How does it attach to the tailgate? Is it durable enough to stay in place on the tailgate after sliding stuff in and out of the bed repeatedly?
There are clips and fasteners that hold this in place and stop it from being able to slide around when you are putting things in and out of the truck. I have also left a link to the install guide below. Please take a look at that as well! https://www.americantrucks.com/bedrug-bed-liner-15117-manu-install-T532677.html
