Bed Liner - need opinions!
Does anyone have a good suggestion for a spray-on? I know there are a few different brands to go with and I am really counting on everyone's experience. I have a 2005 FX4 Supercrew. I plan on using it for just about everything. Things I need to consider are Durability, Fading, and Texture. Also does anyone have any experience with the "tinted" liners? I have thought about going a couple shades darker silver/grey than the vehicle. It seems like it would look good, but I am not sure. Opinions?

I am thinking of Line-x for mine.

I have Line-X on my truck. Very happy with it. Had it on a Ranger too. The folks at Line -X take the bolts out prior to spraying the bed. It's my understanding that some of the other brands won't even think about doing that. It also has a life time warranty, say if you chip it.

Input about line-X is right on. Mine is 6 years old. No Problems what so ever! Love how they leave the bolts un coated for future service. Does anyone know if their free touch-up is valid at all line-X shops or do I have to return to original installer.

I have confirmed they do remove all bolts and hooks if possible, but not the plastic OEM bed rails. They are apparently easy to tear/break. I am a little concerned with not having the linex wrap the rail. Is this consistent with you experience?

They also let me know about the Linex-Xtra. Apparently they do a close match base coat and a color match top coat. The top coat is treated with Kevlar and apparently has been holding up very well. It's an additional $259 on top of the $420 base product.


Just called them back and the warranty is honored nationwide.

If you haul lots of concrete products, you might want to o with a drop in or a rubber bed mat on top of the spray in. the abrasive concrete will quickly ware down the liner.

But if it has a lifetime waranty, you should be fine.

What's there to think about :icon_confused:

I've got a Rhino and it suits me fine. If I had to do it again I would go with Line-X but what I've got gets the job done. I don't really see the point of paying extra for a color matched spray, I mean whats the purpose? It's in the bed of a truck, who is going to see it?

I've decided against the color match. I just thought it would be "different", but I think the money is better spent on other mods. I appreciate the feedback.

I personally don't have, but think that it looks awesome and seems as tho it would get the job done (hauling anything while protecting your bed) and w/a lifetime warranty, how can that be beat?

And yeah, good call on skipping the color matching for $200+!!?? Like Tide said, it's in the bed so who is really gonna see it, and whose gonna really care if it matches?

Now I need to decide on whether to go with the Line-X or the Bedrug?

Gosh darn all of these modding dilemnas!!! :mad:
