    Has anyone does this? I have a friend that just recently purchasedan extended van to run his lawn application business and he is concerned about the abuse the floor will take from the ferts, etc. He wants to Rgino-Line it up to the wheel well height. Anyone have any pics of something like this or experiences. What should it cost? Custom colors or color matching? Thanks!

    We Line-X'd our wood flatbeds and they are holding up great. Not sure about Rhino though. We have a 10 year old service body (metal) that we had sand blasted and Line-X'd and it is doing perfectly after a year or so of daily liquid treatments. I spent about $1000 for the flatbeds and about $800 for the service body if I recall.

    Yes, Ive had the rhino liner in my van for 3 years and it still looks new. Had ziebart in the last van but it chipped off pretty easily. You absolutely have to have some kind of liner or the fert will rot everything. The nice thing about the rhino liner is they seal off all the various little holes that fert could find its way into. My liner goes about 18 inches up from the floor.
