You can use the Topline 2 Bike Truck Bed Mounted Expandable Bike Rack # UG2500 in your 2014 Ford F-150 if the bed liner does not block access to the underside of the bed rails. Spray-on liners should be fine but a drop in liner needs to give you under-the-rail access as shown in the photo I linked for you.

Any determined thief, given the time and tools, can defeat almost any lock, so the best strategy is to make your property appear more difficult to steal than another's. Using multiple locks is a good strategy. The Topline rack comes with a cable lock, but adding a second one like # e98891 that can be secured to the hitch or other strong structure can deter the thief enough to make him or her move on.
