Line X or Rhino Lining?

Its time to get a spray on bedliner. Ive been putting it off long enough. These are really the only two brands that ive heard of. How much should i expect to pay? Anyone recommend a place to go to get it done? Any input is greatly appreciated.

There is a place about 15 miles north of us (i live right by you) that was gonna do my colorado, over the rail for $350. That was Line-x too. Both are great, for me the deciding factor will be the price. Still haven't gone around to doin it, by drop it will do for now...

Rhino is popular amongst my peers; don't know anyone that used Line X.

Woaw....just got an idea. Spray all your fairings with Rhino lining to fight road rash

You would not be dissapointed with either product. I have Line-X on my truck, and it is very nice.

I have the Rhino liner. It comes with a lifetime warrenty. If you take a chunk out of it they'll fix it for ya. I don't know if line-x does that or not.

I have a Rhino liner in my Dakota.....it's held up since 1993! The Rhino is softer, I never cared for the hard Line-X stuff.

my roommate has the Line-x in his truck and it has held up to what ever he has thrown at it. I think we dragged a 350 chevy block across it and it held up.

I could see the softer stuff tearing alot quicker then the harder. But hell if they BOTH have the same guarantee go with the cheapest

I got the rhino liner sprayed in when I got my truck. Good stuff. I didn't have to pick between either of the choices mentioned above. Just used the coupon that I snagged at the autoshow from McCormick Place for something like $100 off. That made my mind up for me

I just got my Tundra rhino-lined. I got it custom matched to the color of the truck's paint for around $600. The custom color was $100 extra I think. With that said, I wouldn't recommend the custom color. Mine doesn't even match right and it looks like shit, not to mention the guy did a sloppy ass job. I thought the custom color would be in the Rhino Liner stuff itself but it's not, they sprayed it with light blue Rhino Liner and paint the color on top of that . I'm going back on Saturday to complain and see what they'll do for me. I had my Silverado done in black from the same place and it came out fine, they must have a different guy doing it or something. When done right I think the Rhino liners are nicer than Line-x. I had mine done at the Ziebart in Countryside so I wouldn't recommend them. I've seen a few from Rhino Linings of Orland Park and they all looked WAY better than mine, I wish I'd have gone there.

I recommend Rhino Liner over Line-X. We have always used Rhino for the ranch trucks, and it is super tough. The Line-X has a harder feel, but that doesnt mean extra strength, its just more uncomfortable if you have to sit on it, and its more likely to scratch stuff.

back on topic of rhino, they are SUPPOSED to mix the color in, not just put it on top of the lining. I personally think color-matching the lining is kinda of ugly. IMO you can't go wrong with black.

I've had a Rhino for 3 years and it holds up very well. I got Rhino because it is a 'softer' liner. When you throw something in your bed and drive around it doesn't slide around and make noise. I have heard a lot of positives about Line X being tough too.

I would have gotten black, that's what I had on my old truck and it looked good but all the plastic trim and whatnot on the Tundra is a grayish color so I thought it woulnd't look that good. Now I wish I'd just gotten black or maybe a gray that's close to the gray plastic trim. Hell I'd be happy if the "color matched" Rhino Liner I have now actually MATCHED! Here's a picture, you guys tell me if this is color matched.

Figured i'd add to this old thread, found some interesting comparo

Line-X vs Rhino.

The biggest difference is that Line-X contains polyurea and Rhino does not. Polyurea enhances the bedliner’s properties.

1. Line-X’s temperature tolerance is 250 degrees and Rhino’s is 175 degrees. As the temperature of the bed approaches the temp tolerance, it loses its strength. Black bedliners can easily reach 130 degrees in the sun.

2. Polyurea keeps moisture out of the solution thus making a more dense and solid liner. Less moisture also means better adhesion.

3. Polyurea also makes for a tougher liner. The tear strength of a Line-X is 304 pounds per square inch (pli). Rhino is 145 pli.

4. Polyurea sets up very fast, that’s one reason why Line-X goes on with heat and high pressure. Line-X dries in about 4 seconds, so you get an even application throughout the bed. Rhino takes a minute or so to even gel, an hour or so to dry. Before it gels, gravity can pull the liner from the top ridges into the low valleys.

5. Polyurea makes the liner more chemical resistant, especially to organic oils and solvents.

6. Rhino’s Tuff Stuff goes on cold/low pressure and thus has the “cottage cheese” or “rain on the windshield” look. Line-X’s high heat/high pressure system gives it a very nice finished and more consistently applied texture. It’s sort of like an orange peel. The dealer can vary the texture from smooth to very rough.

7. Line-X offers a nationwide lifetime warranty. Rhino’s warranty is only with the dealer that sprayed it.

Anybody ever do the trunk of a car with either of these? I'd like to do the trunk floor in my Grand Prix instead of carpeting it. Has anybody had any luck with the d.i.y. spray-on's?

I had mine done at the Orland Park location and they did the best job I have ever seen. Very neat and clean lines with over the rail treatment. I would recommend Rhyno lining it.
