How Much Raptor Liner for Whole Truck?

If you want to protect your truck’s bed from scratches, dents, and other damage, the Raptor liner and bed liner are great options. However, getting an accurate measurement before ordering your liner is essential to avoid ordering too little or too much. In this article, we’ll cover tips on how to measure for Raptor liner and bed liner, how much liner you’ll need, and other helpful information.


Measuring for Raptor Liner

To accurately measure your truck for Raptor liner, follow these steps:

  1. Measure the truck bed length: Start at the front of the bed and measure to the back. Include any areas that you want to be covered by the liner, such as the tailgate.
  2. Measure the width of the truck bed: Start at one side and measure to the other. Again, include any areas that you want to be covered by the liner.
  3. Measure the height of the truck bed: Start at the floor and measure up to the top of the bed. Include any areas that you want to be covered by the liner.

Measuring for Bed Liner

To measure your truck for bed liner, follow these steps:

  1. Measure the length and width of the truck bed: Multiply the length by the width to find the total square footage.
  2. Determine how much liner you’ll need: As a general rule of thumb, one gallon should be sufficient for a 6-foot pickup bed. If you’re still determining how much coverage you’ll need, buying more is always better than you think you’ll need.

Applying Bed Liner and Raptor Liner

Once you have your liner, make sure to prep the surface well before starting to apply it. For the Raptor liner, the process involves spraying the liner onto the surface. In contrast, bed liners can be used with a roller or brush. Following the manufacturer’s instructions carefully is essential to ensure the liner adheres appropriately and lasts for years.

How Much Liner Do You Need?

When it comes to how much liner you’ll need, it depends on the size of your truck. One gallon of bed liner is sufficient for a 6-foot pickup bed, while larger beds may require 1-2 quarts more. The amount you’ll need for the Raptor liner will depend on the measurements you took earlier. It’s always better to err on caution and order more than you think you’ll need.

Can You Rhino Line a Whole Truck?

Rhino Lining is a process in which a truck is coated with a polymer resin to protect it from scratches, dents, and corrosion. It can be applied to any metal surface, not just truck beds. The process involves:

  • Bringing the truck to a shop.
  • Covering the windows and other panels.
  • Spraying the Rhino Lining onto the surface.

Rhino Lining is a permanent solution to protecting your truck and is an excellent option if you want long-lasting protection.

How to Measure the Capacity of Your Truck in Cubic Feet

To measure the capacity of your truck in cubic feet, you’ll need to measure the truck bed’s length, width, and height. Multiply these three measurements to find the total volume. For example, if your truck bed is 14 feet long, 6 feet wide, and 5 feet high, the total volume would be 420 cubic feet.


Raptor lining your entire truck is a highly effective safeguard against scratches, dents, and rust. Although the process can be costly, it is a worthwhile investment if you aim to extend your truck’s longevity. The amount of bed liner required is contingent upon your truck’s bed size, with a general guideline of one gallon being adequate for a standard six-foot bed. While pricier than Raptor lining, Rhino lining offers superior durability and protection. To ensure proper coverage, measuring your truck bed before purchasing any bed liner is recommended.
