My last truck had a spray in (some off brand) and this one has Line-x. I'm just a suburban dude that hauls a few bags of mulch every so often, but I'd never not have a truck with a spray-in.

I have a coworker with a topper on his Ford, with a bedrug. It is 100% watertight and seems just like the back end of a SUV, really. But I don't like the idea of getting the bedrug dirty. I know you can hose them off, but that just doesn't seem like a good idea to me.

I'd never consider a drop-in liner. The only case would be if you plan to load with a forklift daily, the spray in liner makes that tougher.



That right there is another reason why I am hestitate to buy it. I think I will just get a spray on liner.

One of the companies close by to me which is (Line-X) charges 475 for standard.

IDK is that expensive or cheap?

Sounds cheap to me. I thought we paid closer to $1k to do a truck at work, 8' bed Silverado. :dunno: For less than $500, I'd do it

Mine is a short bed. I am looking into the liners through Rhino too.

$475 under the rail for a short bed is pretty standard. All the top names stay around the same price. Over the rail is $75-100 more

yeah...here's a pic of a bed rail cover. "over the rail" spray in would go where this bed rail cover goes. Under the rail goes well....under it. ;) if you ever load from the side at all, I *highly* recommend either over the rail or bed rail covers to protect that area. Modern paint is cheap and thin and scratches easily.

Most of the new ones have the plastic caps on the bed rails so you don't need an over the rail. $475 is about right price-wise. I like line-x over rhino because it is harder and doesn't seem to fade. Rhino is more rubbery, and seems to fade some if it is in the sun all the time...but it would probably work fine for your intended use, especially since you are going to have a tonneau cover.

Half way between here and there.
I have Speedliner in my truck bed. It has done well in the past 16yrs, some fading. Not sure if Speedliner is still around. I know that Rhino is the original for the most part. You can also get color matched and all kinds of decals. I have even seen glow in the dark ones. :lol:

That price sounds reasonable. When building a truck from GM and you add a spray-in liner they charge $450.

Rhino actually has multiple coatings. The old original style, which is as you describe, or they also have a product similar to Line-X called Hardliner. I had Hardliner in my '08. It seemed pretty much identical to Line-X. I can't speak to long term durablity as i didn't have that truck very long.

Point being...you can't go wrong with either, and they're priced about the same as well.

I've contact two dealers with Rhino and neither of them have emailed me back. I'm tempted to go with line-x. Though I am still researching since I won't get it until the end of this year.
