    Who's got one, what kind, what kind of truck, how much did it cost and is it worth it.

    Also this may seem kind of weird but what color is it (black duh) but is it like a gray or a dark black and is it flat or shiny?

    Cheap, DIY... < $100 for the kit.

    It can be sprayed or rolled on.

    They also have other colors than black.

    This is good stuff - by far the best of the DIY kits - but still not even close to as good as the Line-X or Rhino Lining spray-in deals.

    I have Herculiner on my truck and although it's been excellent in protecting my bedsides, bedside caps and tailgate edges, it's not even close to as strong as a proper spray in kit. I tried to load a 1600W Yamaha generator in to the back of my truck to go less than a mile and the frame scuffed through the Herculiner in no time at all. It's OK if you're just hauling boxes, but that's about it. One sharp edge and it's toast.

    I have a tailgate that is Line-X'ed black and that stuff is both hard and thick (about 1/8"). It's the closest thing to a form-fitted bedliner you're going to get. I have seen trucks that are Rhino-Lined and although the coating is quite thick, it's much softer than the Line-X polymer and it is more susceptible to fading from sunlight exposure as well as tearing. They do have pretty good warranties behind them though... so that's a plus.

    From my experience, Line-X is the best.

    locally ive found that over the rail for line-x is $450 and rhino is $385. this is for a ford ranger with the 6 ft bed. i'm trying to decide if the line-x is worth the extra $65.
     
  8. Line X looks better than rhino lining, by the way.

    I prefer rhino over linex. Only for the overall feel of the finished product. Lines feels rough and hard. Rhino feels more rubbery and sticky. I have rhino in my 03 Lightning, but its covered by a bedrug now and I paid about 400 for it. Whatever you go with, dont watch them do it. If you love your truck half as much as me you will cry when they blast the bed to get it ready to be sprayed.

    I have Line-x in my 2004 Silverado and in my trailer. Have not damaged it yet, even with a friend smoking the tires on his quad... (He said he wanted to see if it would melt...)

    Line-X is by far the strongest one out there... it goes on MUCH cleaner than Herculiner and still better than Rhino lining. It actually feels like a hard plastic, where as Rhino lining feels more like a rubber..

    $550 for my truck when it was brand new, and it still looks like this today..

    I've loaded everything from dishwashers, oil, ATVs, bikes, house wreckage (from a remodel), and it still comes out looking brand new every time I wash it..

    My only experience with Line-X is a bit... odd. A guy I know had the dump body of his 1997 Autocar tri-axle dump half line-x'd. It couldn't handle the stone being dropped on it from 10-12ft up in 10+ ton quantities ;)

    :/ I paid for a quality job, and I live in the bay area -- everything is more expensive out here. Especially labor intensive jobs like that...

    That is why I liked the rhino better. The linex felt like it would protect, but the rhino felt like it would hold stuff in place better with its more rubbery feel. I dont think there is any scientific fact behind that, but its just what i felt.

    Mine will. www.reflextruckliners.com

    This stuff will blow Rhino and Line-X out of the water. It won't fade, chip or crack. It's the best stuff on the market. The company puts all of their money into R&D, and none in advertising, which is why you don't hear about it. It can be color matched to your vehicle and it's UV stable.


    Again, blows Rhino and Line-X out of the water :bowdown:
