You want the POR on prior to the bedliner. It will be fine

It is probably not necessary to POR-15 first, unless you just want to. I would call your local line-x guy and ask him...if he doesnt know what POR-15 is, then go somewhere else b/c he hasnt been doing this long. The Line-x guy I am using said he would prefer bare metal to paint, he also said they could/would etch primer it, etc. The paint shop I have been talking to is going to etch primer it; they have worked with the Line-X shop on alot of projects, so they have a really good idea on what needs to be done to get it done right.

A friend of the family owns a local Line X shop. He was actually the first one that turned me onto POR because of the restorations he's completed. He POR'd his truck and Line X'd over it many years ago...he recommended it for our climate. If you are not concerned with rust, then prime it. It will stick regardless if it is prepped correctly. If you are concerned with rust, then you want the por down, period. The Line X will not stop rust regardless of what they try to sell you on. Trust me. If any rust starts, it's going to come right through the Line X, faster than the paint. A trailer manufacturer here set up a deal with a RhinoLine dealer and sprayed all the trailers, flats, enclosed, etc. in various places with Rhino on bare metal. All of the them are chipping like mad and rusting crazy, not from rock chips, the stuff is just falling off. Now there is crap loads of warranty claims and he his having them blasted, then POR'd and re-lined. From what I've observed out here (again, could be different in you climate), I def. not go bare metal. The POR is a small investment for a big return.

I am not trying to be a smart A, but is there that big of a rust problem in Nebraska?

That's a legitimate question. Yes, it's terrible here. We have alot of humidity year round, especially in the summer...coupled with quite a bit of snow (luckily not this year) which creates the need for salted roads (the primary catalyst)...add in the dirt roads, typical rains, etc. The salty roads have been the destruction of most midwest vehicles for many years. Hence, the reason I POR'd my entire Bronco.
