I used to haul cars for my dad during the summers and after college. You ever have Lake effect snow chase you away? I was in Northern Ohio once and I had just dropped off cars when the lady cutting me a check for haul pointed toward the lake and told that I needed to get movin'. It was like a wall of nothing eating everything in sight. I had the pedal down and at some point I was driving with the trailer in the snow and the tractor in front of it.

I know road salt and calcium chloride are used liberally on New England roads. That is why my truck is well rusted for a lack of a better term.

Besides the northeast, what other areas salt the daylights out of their roads, if you happen to know?

we use cinders up here

for the back of my Ranger. The bed has several large holes in the body due to the highway dept dumping tons of salt or calcium chloride.

I have a factory plastic liner in my Mazda B4000 . . .

. . . twin to the Ranger, and the steel bed floor under it is in great shape. That said, I've been told that water can get under the liner and rust the floor. so the answer is to ditch the plastic liner and have the bed spray-lined with Rhino or something similar.

Comments? Thoughts? Experiences?

Take out the plastic liner then spray the inside

of the bed with Fluid Film. It's a rust resistant coating made from sheep's wool.

I have never used the spray bombs but I have used the gallons. You could brush it in. It works good and in your case the liner wears away the paint so it stops the rusting bare metal.

Then put the liner back in.

. . . from the standpoint of protecting the bed. It's thick and tough and fits the bed quite nicely. The drawback is that it's so slick anything you put in there slides all over the bed unless you lash it down securely. If it's wet, you can't even safely walk on it without slipping and falling down. Combined with the possibility of trapping water under it, that's another reason to get rid of it.

Locally, Line-X and Rhino are big for spray-in treatments, offering pretty tough performance and good guarantees. The nice thing about them is they are tough, waterproof and NOT SLICK.

I'm leaning toward Rhino but haven't pulled the trigger yet.

I have Line-X in my 2500HD for 13 years now, looks great yet
