Rhino used to show up at our trade shows and say they had lifetime waranties-no matter what. During that gel time, they are liquid and sink and thus do not follow the truck’s contours very well and they don’t have a uniform thickness.
You must first consider what the liner will do both for you and your truck. My next project is to do the rocker panels below the doors between the wheels in Linex. The increased thickness of a softer Rhino liner gives it a softer “rubbery” feel, and the liner’s surface isn’t as rough as Line-X so it’s more gentle on knees and cargo. Choosing the proper coating and applying the coating within proper ambient conditions is just as important.
There are lots of companies out there selling bedliner products and they all say they the best. The surface will be to bare metal. That’s where the problems with any bedliner arises from. Very cool; it slides the grain & his river boat handles better (Gary is a farmer who got these thinks it’s faster) with a smooth bottom protection. I don’t know how it compares. If you find a Rhino liner installer that uses a hot, high-pressure system (a SolarMax dealer), the differences between a liner from that particular installer and a liner from Line-X can be small.
I’ve repaired Rhino. Josh and the crew at Line-X did a tremendous job! Glad to hear this is helpful. How thick does Line-X recommend the installer apply the liner? My last truck I had sprayed didn’t have this issue but I was curious as to how easily this will be to clean up and isn’t this something the trim shop should do since they spray it during the installation? Here is the response I got: From: Steve Visvadra Is it possible to apply the Rhino over the Line-X? Preston — About Jeeps tubs Just had my truck done with Rhino spray on lining, on the bed part there are bubbles anywhere from 1/4 inch accross to 2 inches. If anyone has any questions about Line-X, how it is sprayed, or any other questions regarding spray in bedliners feel free to email me at [email protected] You discovered our secret! Note however that it will telegraph any lumps or bumps or divots.

If you have any other questions along the way,feel free to contact me anytime.Like I said earlier,probably best by e-mail. These Spray-Lining guys spray truck beds soft like Reflex, hard like Line-X & actually warranty the jobs unconditionally. The best liner I have had hands down is the Linex-Premium. If you are a considerable distance away from the original Franchise, you can visit any LINE-X location across the country. I washed, then wiped with Alcohol, sanded everything with 80 grit and a nylon cup brush, vaccumed, wiped again, masked, wiped again (with denatured alcohol) and sprayed. Do you have a piece of stainless steel that’s easily mailed, say about one square foot? Rhino Linings is the originator, top tier, and rules. If you find a Rhino liner installer that uses a hot, high-pressure system (a SolarMax dealer), the differences between a liner from that particular installer and a liner from Line-X can be small. For reference, a piece of paper is usually about 10 to 15 mils and a dime is about 40 mils. I like Aaron have also found Linex to be a good sound deadener. For the last 3 years or so, we’ve been gathering data about the most popular spray-in bed line brand. Sierra (the regional manager) told me that it had been mixed or applied improperly and it should not be doing that.
