    Want to get a spray in liner for new F150. Any experience with Permatech or rhino liner?

    I think I'll get the Perma tech. Can you talk me into it or out of it.

    I am very pleased with my Rhino. The guy that did it had about 8 years experience. A coworker had one done by a different guy with about a year of experience, looked like crap. Make sure you find somebody that has been at it a while. Tony

    Had three rhino`s with good luck. Good guy putting them in too. Have a couple friends who went the cheapy route. OK but not as nice or thick. I may try the napa roll on next myself the rhino`s have gotten to high.

    I see used bed liners at the auto scrap yards. If you aren't real particular, you may save some money.

    My GMC has a plastic, ribbed bottom type liner which is very hard on the knees and things slide easily inside the bed. Also, the dogs are reluctant to jump onto the tail gate because they can't grip the matching plastic on the tailgate.

    If I had to buy something, I'd get the rubber mat.-Jerald

    I have a friend that had an older Chev. PU that was rode hard and put away wet but ran like a scalped cheetah. I don't know which place he went to but he had the whole danged truck coated with the bed liner sans the chrome parts and wheels then re-installed bumpers and all. Sure was the most unique pick up in Eugene, OR for the few months he lived here before transferring to MO. What a red neck rig that was in Cape Giardou or however you spell that village....breakemall....Bob Dodd

    You want to be carefull of the plastic liners they will collect water and dust under the plastic resulting in a rusted bed over time. Tony

    Line-X > Rhino

    www.fullsizechevy.com has a HUGE poll about it and Line-X came out on top IIRC by a large margin.

    Line-X with rubber floor mat on my F150. Had it done six months ago.


    I saw one done with "Reflex" it's actually a little softer and applied thicker than my Line-X.


    The Line-X is applied hot, dries in about 3 seconds.

    My local Rhino dealer is a bone-head and so i had to go looking for a different type of liner. I found a Linex dealer about 45 minutes away, so i checked it out. Linex had better reviews than the Rhino liner. Also Linex is sprayed on hot which helps it bond to the surfaces better, where as Rhino is a cold application. again it is preference, noone had anything nice to say about my local Rhino so i went Linex. They are both good products, it just really matters how good the installer is.

    Line-X is the one I chose for my '99 Chevy Silverado ... still looks great and she only has 211,311 miles on her. I wouldn't hesitate to do it again.

    Take care, Bob
