Well being a bit reluctant about "new things" when I bought my truck 2 years ago, I was reluctant to try Rhino Linings. Instead I bought the so typical POS bed liner. with in 2 years its slip resistant cover was slicker than all heck. And I took a good spill off the tailgate liner on wednesday


Saturday I dropped my truck off for Rhino Lining install.......Never even gonna consider a bed liner again. Today was the test, 3 panic stops cause people insist on trying to have themselves T boned by me. Nothing in the bed moved an inch, It looks great, never ever have to worry bout what sand/dirt/salt made its way underneath the bedliner again.


Take my advice F*&K these POS bedliners.

I never liked the plastic liners in any of my trucks for all the above reasons and plenty of my own. I always wondered about the spray on liners, (you cant take it off, it's there forever) but it has to be better than the plastic.

I guess your preference will depend on your use. I think the spray in liners look nice but I need a lot of impact resistence. Heavy blocks, bricks, and tools are constantly being thrown at it. I couldn't imagine what the spray in would look like after a forklift pushed in a cube of 12" blocks.
In this case grip would be a bad thing. After mine gets destroyed I will toss it and throw in a new one.

Question: Why would you ever want it off?


When I got mine done, one of the guys that I work with asked me that very question. My response was, "If I wanted it off, I wouldn't have put it in there."


Regarding the heavy use thing. That's really a good point about spray ins. THINGS DON'T SLIDE AROUND, OR IN FOR THAT MATTER. In some ways that's a good thing, and in other's it's not. Just depends on what you want...

If you really beat the bed to death, like dropping broken bricks from a backhoe into it, The toughest thing is a drop in on top of a Rhino. I like the Rhino because while it's not the prettiest it seems to be the best to keep things from sliding around. If you don't want a liner then the rubber mats like they sell at Wally world seem to work OK for light use.

Its has a resistance of 1700 psi, before it I guess would crumble/ break so unless your dropping cinder blocks/bricks off the top of the chimney in your house into the bed of the truck, you should be fine.


You can do it right the first time or try again later.....I learned now


Free bedliner available

Love the Line-X. Wears like iron. Wouldn't ever go back to a drop in liner.

I have to agree with both sides here. I have a Line-X spray on, but have had Rhino and drop in. The Line-X is great, but if I go get a load of gravel, I sometimes regret not being able to slide the gravel out with shovels towards the end. But, I don't regret it long when I consider the other times when I love having a spray in liner. Just my 2 cents

hog1340hd,


It's a little off the beaten path in a small industrial park near the parkway. I think they do a real nice job. It's a father and son business.
