Best spray-in bedliner?
Posted 01 September 2012 - 09:03 AM
I know I want a sprayed-in bedliner, NOT a drop-in liner. Anybody have recommendations on the best spray-in liner?
All I know at the moment is that Ford charges $495 and the dealership uses a local shop for that. I do not know what the dealer's choice is yet and I need info from your good and bad experiences before I decide.
LOL! If I had the $$$ I'd almost be tempted to coat the whole darn vehicle and never worry about scratches, tree pitch, bird poo or much of anything else but this week it will only be the 6 1/2 bed!
What should I know so I get the best protection without getting ripped off?

Here's a link to an article by a GM Truck forum member.

Just to clarify... When you said "The black coating comes off on your clothes if you crawl up in the bed. You end up looking like a coal miner." are you referring to the guy's truck who did not get the UV protection... or spray bedliners in general?
A lot of the members of the GM Truck forum have Rhino and seem happy with it. A friend has one of the major brands in his truck, but didn't get the UV protection. The black coating comes off on your clothes if you crawl up in the bed. You end up looking like a coal miner.

Since this picture was taken, I have taken a full bed mat and trimmed it to the size of the top of those drawers and screwed it down along the edges.

Have it shot in my 2002 SuperCrew. 10 years no problems.
Anybody have Line-X?
Tough as nails. Non-slip texture can be hard on bare knees though!

I had never heard of that one. Anyone shop at Campways for truck stuff?

Yes I have the Line-X. I have had it for several years. It is durable and looks good. Have not had any problems with it. Unlike a rubber mat though things will slide around on it unless they are something that provides more friction such as wood, rubber, etc. You have to tie down plastic coolers, gas cans, etc because the liner is not good at holding them in place as you go around the corner. Also, loading and unloading furniture must be done more carefully because the liner is like super sandpaper. Dragging your bookshelf towards the tail gate to unload it will result in significant sanding action on it.
But the price was good, it is very durable, it looks nice, and has held up well.

Well, first, I had the Rhino in my previous 2000 Dodge Ram 4x4 and it served me well. It did fade over time, but there may be some kind of spray or coating I could have put on it to keep it fresher looking? But I never did (look into that).
However, in my 2012 Tundra 4x4 (nearly 8 months old now), I went with Toyota's rubber mat, and so far I like it much better than any spray in job. It is quieter and NOTHING slides around, unlike my sprayed in bed liner. I mean, it's almost like anything you put in it, it is STUCK right there. Almost! I do not have to tie anything down except a water jug full of water. So my experience with a rubber mat is much different than Jason's and not sure why though? Anyway, all I know is, my rubber mat works GREAT & won't be going back to any type of spray in liner soon.
Good Luck on what ever you decide
p.s. I do have a Snug Top Lid on my truck. Not sure if that would matter or not though??
