There’s little doubt that the stalwart Silverado, Chevrolet’s No. 1 selling truck, can stand up to inclement weather and rough terrain of all kinds. But at Sherman Chevrolet, we know that even heavy haulers such as the Chevy Silverado need a truck bed protector.

An exposed bed is susceptible to destructive environmental elements, breakage from cargo loads and cargo theft. The best way to protect your truck bed is to install a sturdy tonneau cover.

A tonneau cover is a hard or soft covering that shields a pickup truck’s cargo bed from weather-related damage and external debris.

Car Life Nation explains the importance of protecting your truck bed:

“Truck bed liners protect the truck bed from rust and deterioration as well as from physical damage due to hauling heavy gear and abrasive materials that can cut and scrape the truck bed. Truck bed liners also provide surface grip, which can keep people and items from sliding around in the back of your truck.”

Truck bed punctures, as Car Life Nation points out, are the worst kind of damage your truck bed can incur. If you’re hauling sand or dirt, you run the risk of leaving a trail of your cargo down the highway, and materials can fall through the truck bed and possibly damage your truck in other areas.

That’s why it’s so important to protect your Silverado with a truck bed liner, and it’s crucial to choose the right one. Be sure to do a little research before you buy – spending a little more money on a truck bed liner may end up saving you a fortune in repairs in the future.

As Truck Trend points out, “Choosing the right tonneau truck bed protector can be a shell game.” This is true even for the ever-popular Silverado. Before you cap your Silverado with a protective truck bed cover, take a look at Truck Trend’s tips for choosing the right tonneau and Sharp Truck’s The Ultimate Tonneau Buying Guide.

There are several Silverado tonneau styles on the market, many of them customizable: hard and soft tonneau roll-ups, tri-folds, BAKflip, retractable covers with different molds and fits and water-resistant liners that protect the truck bed’s interior surface. The cap or covering can be made from steel, fiberglass, aluminum or a composite.
