Rhino or Line-X???

17 posts in this topic

Which one do you like more?? And do you know who can hook it up?? I want to get this for my new 'used' 01 Tundra (shortbed) I just bought. Cheapest I found was $404+tax at Zeibart in Fridley... wink.gif

TIA

Line X. I tried the do it yourself herculiner and hate that. I know many people with line x and that's what I'll be getting this spring.

If I had to choose between those two I would go with Line-X.

I have a Vortex liner in my '04 GMC and had one in my '03 Ford Ranger and both took a fair amount of abuse and never showed it. Vortex may be another option that you might want to consider. It may be cheaper, but the quality is as good as the other two. Waldoch is where I had my trucks done but there may be other dealers.

Thanks for the replys thus far... I forgot to mention that the $404 price above is for Rhino.

Line-x here. Mine is going on six years and it is still holding up great.

Line - X here as well.

My next fish house frame will be getting it as well just as a former coworker had done. Strength was darn near doubled he said and obviously there is no corrosion or damage worries with Line -X as its all but indestructable.

Some have a speedliner sprayed on them but they do not hold up year after year without maint.

Line-X. I had mine installed in 01 while my truck was new. I still have friends checking it out to make a decision. All have said it's like new, and it's gotten a lot of use, hauling firewood, furniture, the lawn tractor, the snowblower, and other lawn equipment. Next truck gets the same.

Where about do you live?

If you can travel to Ramsey, I can hook you up.

I had a Rhino lining in my 97 Dakota when I bought it if I remember correctly it was in its 7th year and still looked great and worked great but I did manage to take a chunk out the tailgate somehow.

Absolutely Line-X !!

I have it in my truck now & my last truck - no issues, not even chips. I "throw" a lot of big logs (about 80 Truck loads!!!) and even sharp things in it. It looks perfect. cool.gif

I looked at your internet specials and am interested in the access cover and spray combo... Is the access cover a retractable one? You have one to fit my truck?

FWA,

All I can say, is I am not the owner and the owner is a great guy. Almost all the local dealships use him and that’s how I have got to know him over the years. I have sent my family members to him and others. He does a top notch job and at a great price.

This is just a little tip for F.M.ers.. He is very cheap in price, but high in quality.

Make sure you tell them you heard of them off of Fishing Minnesota.com. May be Lee Harvey could get a new sponsor. grin.gif

      I understand that the SonarChart data comes from user submitted data, but I wonder if that data is rife with errors.  Maybe the users set up their sonar wrong or something to contribute to the faulty data?  As your screen shots prove, they're highly inconsistent.  There is no 37 foot hole just south of the words Marion Lake nor along the western shorelines.  Based on my experience on the lake with my sonar in my boat, the Navionics data is more accurate than the Sonar Chart, so I'm not seeing the value in the $4.99 yearly subscription to the user submitted data. I guess I'll have to evaluate on a few different lakes and see, maybe it is just a problem with the data for Marion, I just expected that the user submitted data would be more accurate, not less accurate   On a side note, I noticed I could refresh my map update and that at least got rid of the data with the 51' depths, but it still looks like your screen shot on the right.  I'll keep checking for updates in hopes of better data come summer.

      I will be up there next week from Austin Texas.  Can anyone comment on the lake and how safe it is after the warm up?  I thought it would be very unsafe but I saw a truck on the ice plowing an ice rink this morning on one of the web cams.   Is there still plenty of ice and is the lake in pretty good shape now that is has turned cold again?  Maybe it is in better shape then before the cold?   I grew up in the area but that was 30 + years ago so any schooling on the ice would great.   Thanks for any comments.

      Was out there Tue.... Ice was getting soft on top. Access was in ok shape. Don't think you will be getting a wheelhouse out unless it's a real small light one.  Had 16-20 inches of ice yet
