Video Transcript for WeatherTech TechLiner Tailgate Liner Review

Today we're going to be having a look at the weather tech tech liner customer tailgate liner in black. Part number WT3TG04. The tailgate tech liner will protect your tailgate against scratches, dents, paint damage and rust by seamlessly lining the tailgate. It is chemical and UV resistant, flexible and durable. The tech liner is made from a 100% recyclable and odorless thermoplastic alastmer. It will not crack, break, or warp even in extreme temperatures.

Installation takes only minutes with the use of existing screws and hook and loop discs. The first thing we want to do before we begin our installation here is take some soap and water and clean off our tailgate so we have something for our tailgate liner to stick too properly. Now that we've got our tailgate clean, you can see that we have all these scratches here on it. The weather-tech liner will actually prevent that from happening so that's one of the reasons we're going to be installing it today. When you take the included torque fit and remove these top four screws. Now with our screws removed, there's a white almost clear plastic washer on the inside of the screw head here.

We want to remove those. Sometimes you can just grab it and turn the screw off of it and it'll come off pretty easily. Now we'll take one of the black plastic washers that comes with the kit and install it with the flat edge, facing the flat edge of our screw here. Just like so. We'll do the same for all four of the screws that we're removed. Now we'll get those out of the way for the time being and we'll set our mat down on top of our tailgate.

Just to make the mat easier to install, I recommend letting it sit out in the sun for few minutes. It'll help flatten it out and make it fit the tailgate really nicely because it ships in a box where it's folded up on itself. Take our screws and we'll reinstall them. Loosely for right now. They recommend you tighten the screws back up by hand using a ratchet.

With those screws all run down now, you may notice there's nothing on the front of the tailgate going towards the bed. What we can do is pull back the plastic covering here over our included hook and loop tape and stick it down into place. If you ever need to remove it, or clean underneath your tailgate for whatever reason, the sticky part here will stay on with the one end of the hook and loop tape. We'll just remove those. Fold it back down and press it into place. That completes our look at the Weather-tech Tech liner custom tailgate liner in black part number WT3TG04.

I have been a weathertech fan and these exceeded expectations. Just bought a new 2020 F150 and they were perfect.

Fits nice, not crazy about the Velcro on bottom so I used some silicone adhesive across bottom and sat weight on it with tailgate open til dry.

Review from a similar TechLiner in Truck Bed Mats


Overall the bed liner was easy to install, the fact that it was designed to fit the bed of my specific truck and had a good fit and finish was important to me. Another nice attribute is that the liner extends up the walls of the bed and does not simply end at the bottom of the bed. This helps keep snow and water and debris away from the bed itself. The service I received from etrailer was above and beyond and exceeded my expectations. Jena called me to update me on a change to my order, then followed up twice to let me know the item had shipped. Highly recommend etrailer !!

Review from a similar TechLiner in Truck Bed Mats


I pretty much trust everything Weather Tech, but this product missed the mark. It was EXTREMELY difficult to install. It uses a long plastic "C" clip along the upper edge of the tailgate to hold down the mat. You're suppose to install the clip and then slide the mat in from one end, even with lube it wouldn't slide in. I've been working on my own cars for 50 years. It took me quite a while to get the mat into the "C" clip. Then you have to move it back and forth some to line up the screw holes that are reused in the tailgate.

I’m very happy with this purchase. First of all, it looks great and the WeatherTech liner will do a great job protecting my tailgate. The installation was very quick and easy. Didn’t even need the instructions, but they were there and easy to follow. They even included the necessary Torx bit to remove and then reinstall the bolts on the tailgate. The packaging was nice, and it arrived in great shape.

It fits in the truck box of my 2021 Ford F-150 Power Boost perfectly! I had to trim a little piece off around the power outlets.

Review from a similar TechLiner in Truck Bed Mats


This is a 1-year review. This bed liner has held up very well to average abuse. I wish the tail gate liner fit a bit better and that there were more velcro included with the purchase as I think it needs a bit more. I would have added it myself had I known that it is needed to get a better fit. Overall I am happy with the purchase as it has performed as expected.

I was very pleased with this product easy to install , I was able to install it in about 15 minutes. Very light as far as weight on the tailgate which I liked as well. Definitely would recommend this product for protection on your tailgate. Thank you


Comments
Been working out very well. I dont haul a lot of stuff in it but when I do it holds it in place and Im real happy with it. I would definitely suggest this for someone that has a box cover, I would advise someone to buy this ,price is reasonable for such a quality product.

Way thin and flimsy. Not what I expected at all.

Review from a similar TechLiner in Truck Bed Mats


Installed on my 2015 F250 4x4. Great fit. Tailgate liner utilizes existing Ford tailgate screws to secure top edge and adhesive-backed velcro pads along lower edge. After install, Product would pull away slightly when tailgate in vertical position in 80-degree temperatures (not a big deal but it bugged me). I added two dollops of adhesive silicone in center area which secured Liner snugly to tailgate. I'm Happy. The Techliner compliments by DeeZee bedliner purchased at the same time.

Review from a similar TechLiner in Truck Bed Mats


The mat looks great and still doing its job. I would give 5 stars if the adhesive on the underside worked better with a spray-in bed liner (Velcro attachments pretty much useless with a liner) . Though the mat does stay in place as it's fitted well to the curves of the truck bed. A good buy for me.

Review from a similar TechLiner in Truck Bed Mats


The edge of this liner is suppose to slip under the edge of the truck tail gate but doesn’t. I tried gluing it down and finally had use screws and a piece of aluminum trim to hold it down.

Review from a similar TechLiner in Truck Bed Mats


Perfect fit for my 2017 Ram 1500. Minus 1-star since the top and bottom of the liner have a tendency to "warp". The Velcro circles provided and existing screws do secure the tailgate liner adequately. I added a 1/2" strip of magnetic tape (Home Depot) to the top and bottom of the liner. It now sits flush and looks much better.

Review from a similar TechLiner in Truck Bed Mats


Tailgate protector fit great, but the trim piece comes rolled up in the box, and it never really straightened out, so when I attached it using the double sided tape, it has never really stuck like it should. I have tried several other things to attach it, but it is still not right.

Perfect fit. No trimming or drilling re quired.

The vinyl retention strip required a little trimming to perfectly match the humps in the tailgate, but otherwise the mat itself was a perfect fit.
