Durakon Recalls Chevy, GMC Bedliners

Durakon Industries, in cooperation with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), is recalling approximately 8,000 over-rail bedliners on 1999 - 2004 model year Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks in order to change the system that fastens the bedliner to the bed of the pickup truck.

LAPEER, MI — Durakon Industries, in cooperation with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), is recalling approximately 8,000 over-rail bedliners on 1999 – 2004 model year Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks in order to change the system that fastens the bedliner to the bed of the pickup truck.

The company said it is not aware of any reported cases of injury or property damage as a result of the current fasteners not performing, but due to the possibility that the bedliner can dislodge from the vehicle, the company is recalling the bedliners as a precautionary measure.

Durakon is advising anyone who may have purchased either an AllStar or Patriot over-rail bedliner since August 1, 2003 that was installed in a 1999 to 2004 model year Chevrolet Silverado or GMC Sierra pickup truck to return to an authorized Durakon dealer so that the bedliner can be inspected, and if any product replacement is necessary, it will be completed at no cost to the customer.

Going forward, Durakon said a new fastening system will be used in the installation of all AllStar and Patriot over-rail bedliners.
