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.

      We had a good bite on 1/2 crawlers today! Boated 45 walleyes and kept our limits of fish that were all between 15-1/2" and 19-3/4 "! Released at least 6 slot fish. Largest was a fat 25-1/2 inch fish. Best over all sized fish limit all summer! The walleyes were stuffed with either May fly nymphs or molted crayfish.

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
