    I just got a newer truck and I want to have a spray in bed liner installed. I have heard alot of comments about both Linex and Rhino and I have read many threads here that have discussed both.

    My question is, for those of you that have either, what are your likes a dislikes of the liner that you have. I have thought that Linex is the better way to go, but I want your opinions because I do not want to drop $450 on a liner and then wish I have the other brand installed instead.

    Love the Line-X, only downside is it's more slippery than Rhino. That's really only a double edged sword, stuff slides around, but is easier to load/unload.

    Line-x all the way. We traded out some work with a Line-x installer and we have been very happy with them so far. The first truck they did had to be redone because an employee of theirs did not properly prep the bed floor. After they re-did it it was great.

    I also want to add this. For those of you that have black (Linex-Rhino liners) how well do you feel the color is holding up? Or do you feel that the black color has greyed out pretty bad?

    Linex:clapping: I have spilled gasoline, diesel fuel, fertlizer, lime and still looks great.

    Linex is much better. Much more "rubbery", and holds it's color a lot better.
    I have had 6 trucks done with Linex over the years. Even in the hot Texas sun, the Linex stays black. The Rhino fads to gray in less than a year.
    I recently had a former Rhino franchise owner tell me that Linex was way better than the Rhino liner. That is one reason he sold off his franchise.

    rhino has more grip, line-x seems a bit tougher and its easier to slide stuff in and out of the bed. But if you want that extra grip, get rhino.
