Just take some steel wool or a heavy wire brush to them to scuff them up. Just prep everything well and make sure it's clean before you put the liner on. It'll stick just fine.

Not sure if Bedliner is like paint. But we use etching primer when we paint a chrome part (at work). But the person above me got it right, prep is key to any good paint job.

I have painted chrome hinges and some other parts with bedliner. When I did mine, I scuffed them up with a wire wheel on my drill and then hit them with some spray on bedliner and coated them with 3 coats of satin clear to keep them from fading. Here are some before and afters.
