Just got my new truck and can't decide what to get. Can any one please post a picture of line x or rhino lining. It would be great. Also your opinions on bed liners. What ever I get I'm still going to get a bed mat for softness and grip.
I have had both and prefer the LineX. The Rhino after 2 years would ball up when dragging heavy equipment across it. Then again that was back in 1994, and probably has improved a little. They both fade after a while, unless you upgrade to the premium
Had Rhino in my last truck and hated it. Faded color and peeled off the sides. Had warranty to fix it, but they resprayed the sides so heavy it ran really bad and looked like crap.
Have Line-X now and love it. Looks 10x better. I also have the Ford rubber bed mat to help pad some of my gear from scuffing.
I have had plastic liners in my previous two trucks before selecting Line-X for my current truck. Each has their pros and cons, and what type of cargo you intend to haul may also have a bearing.
If you tend to haul "delicate" items that you don't want scratched up or heavy items that may tend to roll and potentially dent your bed (think engine blocks and transmissions), then a plastic liner may be for you. A spray-on liner will have a rough texture that helps to keep most types of cargo from sliding around, but that same texture will also rough up (scratch) soft objects that are dragged on it (finished wood, vinyl, etc).
For my Line-X, I need to have moving blankets or flattened cardboard on hand when loading up "sensitive" cargo.
I got linex for Christmas this past year and so far I love it. I've carried things for work In it and also carried my four wheeler around many places. Glad I don't have to worry about scratching the bed everytime I load something now!
