Question:

I have a bed liner installed in the back of my 1999 Lariat flair-side bed. Do you make a Swagman bike carrier which can be 1 adjusted to allow for the bed liner ? 2 Have a Swagman bike carrier for three bikes ?

Helpful Expert Reply:

You can use a truck bed bike rack such as # S64702 in your 1999 Ford F-150 as long as the bed liner does not come up over the tops of the bed sides.

If the bed liner was in the way it could cause the rack to lose its grip causing it to slip and/or become detached from the bed sides.

If your bed liner does come up over the tops of the bed sides and you do not want to trim it or remove it then I recommend the Softride Shuttle pad # SR26457. The front bike tires will rest on the outside of the tailgate and there are tie downs at the pad to secure the bikes. I have linked a video review for you.
