Bought a 2000 Silverado in 2005 all ready had Rhino in it by time I traded in 2012 it was peeling off under the rail on the side it was faded looked rough wasnt impressed with that part it did however stand up to the use pretty well did see scratches that never went away and the fading looked i wasnt happy with I keep my truck clean and it didnt help that at all.

What about the line x that is color matched to the truck, does it fade as bad? I would think you could keep it protected with something to keep it from it. I do no rhino liner fades fast and does look grey ish after about 6 months

I got quotes from both LineX and Rhino for my 2000 Ford F250. For lineX,$600 and for Rhino,$450.

Talking with both of them, the Rhino dealer was much easier to talk to and MUCH more willing to answer all my questions.

Rustoleum makes a bed liner. Probably about 30 bucks for a gallon + painting supplies from an auto parts store like o'rilley or autozone.
I can't vouch for their bedliner (I've never used it), but Rustoleum makes good stuff. I'd consider doing that.
Other people have told me it is as tough as nails.
Rustoleum makes residential paint and try's to play in the industrial market. As a industrial coatings representative I don't think there is a do it yourself product on the market that will give you the results or appearance of a spray applied polyurea and if there was it would be to complicated for your average joe.

had rino sprayed in my 2002 F150 super crew when brand new O miles 157.000 miles later here in the north east with wind,rain,snow and summer heat it has taken every thing i could throw at it for 11 years . not pealing , ripping or lifting. it does fade but you can restore the shine easy. well worth the price for protecting the bed and keeping things from sliding around. Plus it made the truck 5 times quieter then my other trucks with the drop in liners.
good luck hope this helps

I have had both in the last 4 years, both on Chevy 1500s. Linex wins hands down.

Spray Lining complaints are because of the following issues: Any DIY spray bed lining is not nearly the same as polyurea formulas. Polyureas aren't available at auto parts stores, any retail outlets or even on the net in small quantities. This is due to the hazardous nature of isocyanates which are carcinogenic, usually require professional paint booth & a full respirator suit with mask to apply. Polyureas are rarely if ever available in small amounts due mainly to extremely high costs of shipping hazardous materials. Lastly are the correct equipment to spray polyureas: high-cost equipment over $6,000.00 for low-end Graco units are standard. Although equipment can be a hopper gun & mixed manually, these spray lining formulas have lower quality yet still retain low amounts of isocyanates. Legally, companies like Scorpion, Als Liner, Speedliner & Superliner still require respirators. Serious complaints on these spray-lining company names, fake safety claims with minimal precautions are documented.

The only actual DIY of these called Als Liners sells what they call a, "bed" that's approximately 1 gallon for over $150.00. That's enough to do a tiny bed of 25 square feet like a Jeep Wrangler box, but an 8 foot bed with rails spray-lined requires over 3 gallons to achieve correct thickness. Over 100 mils is correct, minimum for good protection. On health, cancer cases pointing at these companies as these that sell spray lining for truck beds or small items are also documented. Ironically one actual "company" called "Spray-Lining" has no health hazard because their hybrid formula MSDS and all specs I found prove it as "safe" or non-hazardous. I've used both DIY & had them spray what they call "Dealer-Grade" Spray-Lining at Kens Flexible Armor. They sell me the DIY plus Ken & Norm, the owners did several beds for my shop at Corning Ford in California. My biggest complaint with the company Spray-Lining is that their DIY stuff is Professional-Grade but their Dealer-Grade is better, both are not dangerous but only their dealers can use their better stuff.

As for quality, if you can locate a Line-X dealer who'll quote under $500.00 for a full size truck bed, AND spray that lining at over 100 mils throughout that's a great deal. Line-X quality is great but they're pricy. Rhino Linings does not suck. Their Tuff Grip, however is much lower in quality than Rhino's Hard Line. The fact is that higher percentages of polyurea usually equates to a stronger spray lining jobs. Other good names are Arma Coatings, ArmorThane & SPI. These all have polyurea hybrids & more pure versions with over 85% or 100% polyurea. So if you need the best bed-lining sprayed get it done by any of these professional, "REAL" company names. professionally. If you must do it yourself, get Spray-Lining only. Or just buy a lot of Als Liner & wear protective clothing & respirator; be careful!! As for these FAKE companies calling themselves bedliner dealers spraying phoney lining? Fake coatings, fake names, a sprayed lining scam is what you'd pay for. It cannot last because its fake. Beware of this lining scam because you'll waste your time and money, pay to remove the fake stuff and re-apply the good stuff. This should guide all truck owners and anyone considering a serious, high quality sprayed-on lining job.

Put in rhino in my 2000 Chevy. Has done great for me. Does have a "grippy" feel that keeps stuff from shifting. Have shoveled gravel out of my truck without a problem. Would recommend.

I bought Line x for my fiance 2 yrs ago for his birthday.He has a Ford ranger. I very carefully did two months of research on Line x vs Rhino. I then had to convince him via the research that line x was better. I used the local better business reports, online forums, consumer information on the application process itself. But in the end, he agreed to the line x & loves it completely. We have hauled cinder blocks, wood, plastic totes w\no issues. Still looks brand new..

I agree with the poster that the product is only as good as the person who does it, so be wary. We went out of state for our dealer.

I have had line-x for 12 years in my truck with no problems. If you have the money I would go with line-x.I have heard that rhino liner fades but i never used it so ask anyone who has.
Good luck

I had Rhino sprayed in my F250. It had a soft spongy feel for about a year. During that time it will tear or chip out. Once it sets in the summer sun all summer and cures for a year it is hard as nails and won't peel. It does fade. Overall I like it. Just be careful with it the first year and it will last forever.

Just bought a truck and the Dealers body shop installs Rhino. After asking the salesman what they would charge me to do my bed, he tells me to go to the line-x dealer in town. I had a rhino in my last truck and it performed well for the 10 years I had the truck. I guess I am going to try line-x this time.

Put Rhino Liner in my 2010 Silverado company truck when new. Installed in Jacksonville, NC. Hauled lots of mulch, rocks and pallets of sand. Liner held up great. No pealing or scratching at all after 4 years of service. Bed was covered when not hauling so fading was not an issue. Just got new 2014 Sierra. Putting Line-X in this one to compare the two.

I install spray on bed liners. The difference between rhino amd linex is a filler. Rhino fades and cracks because they infuse a polymer filler in their mix as linex uses a pure polyeurea mixture. Most linex use a "High pressure" system which fuses the coating as it sprays out of the gun which gives u a smooth texture, and there's a "low pressure" system which uses a mixing nozzle which mixes in the tube and shoots out thats how u get that "chunky" texture. Ask ur dealers if they use a high or low pressure system. High pressure is more uniform.
