Spray in liner

18 posts in this topic

What does everyone prefer for a spray in bed liner. We have Line-X and Rhino in town and they both seem to be the same as far as I can tell and both have a lifetime warranty. Does anyone know if one is better than the other?

Do a search on Fishing MN since it has been discussed before. I went with Line-X and it is fine after 3 years. It was the brand offered by the place that I got my topper from. It doesn't get a lot of abuse though.

I beat the crap out of my Rhino for 6 years, with tree stands, wood, chainsaws, augers, etc... I never ripped it or saw any of the sheet metal on the box. The only thing that happed was it faded pretty quick other than that it was rock solid...

I've also had Rhino for 5 years. No deep scratches or rips with lots of dirt/rock/compost hauled. Mine also faded from jet black to a dull black/gray after 1-2 years. I got it re-sprayed due to an accident and the same thing happened.

I will probably try Line-X next time because it seems to resist fading better. But I'm otherwise happy with the Rhino. Make sure you get it sprayed over the rail and on top of the tailgate as well.

My Line-X is still going strong after 7 years.

I'm looking at a new truck and considering Line-X. Has anybody had their rocker panels, door jams, wheel wells, or fenders done? I'm also thinking about anding Ranchhand bumpers (front and rear) and was thinking of having them sprayed as well. I would appreciate any thoughts.

I put Line-X in my new truck three years ago...and hauled a ton of stuff. People always ask me if I ever put anything in the bed...because it still shinny black with no scrathes...so I am very happy so far.

It was 400.00 bucks to do my super-crew..and top rails.

I had the bottom and fenders of my drop down fish house done three years ago and still looks good, and no rock chips in the fenders.

I have a Vortex sprayed-in liner and I am very happy with it. I have had it on two trucks and both were pretty tough. I am not sure how it happened but on my previous truck, I or someone else threw something in the back hard and/or heavy enough to dent the wheel well and the liner never cracked/peeled/chipped.

sprayed in liner is the way to go. I have had it on my last two trucks. my new truck had a plastic bed liner in it, I had it removed and got the line-x.

I'm just a bit po'd because the doors on my Suburban are starting to rust out (just after the warrenty expires) so, I'm thinking of using line-x (new truck) on the rocker panels, lower part of the door as well as the door jamb (of couse making sure that any drain holes are left open) and then spraying the inside of the doors with cosmoline (developed to protect guns, artilery, and equipment being shipped to the pacific theater in WWII).

I have Line-X and love it. I've had it for 6 years and from snowmobiles to elk have been in the back and still looks as good as day one. Some friends of mine in CO had the rocker panels done as well as their rims. As my truck gets older, I am considering putting color matched Line-X on the rocker panels too.

Thanks to everyone for their help. I had the line-x done today and plan to put it to the test this weekend.

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
