    after lots of research, phone calls, emails, etc., i decided to get a EZ-Dump Insert for my truck. i was wondering if anyone ever had the bottom and sides of their dump beds lined w/ spray on bedliner? all of my trucks have always had Rhinoliner brand and i love it, but i havent seen it on any dump beds before. i cant actually think of any disadvantages for it either as most of the dump inserts or dump beds i see that are 2+yrs old, are starting to rust out already.

    that is sweet! from the pics it looks like LineX, dont you think? i like LineX as well although the nearest "dealer" isnt as close as the Rhinoliner guy and i get a great deal on beds otherwise, i wouldnt consider doing something as large as a dump insert.

    I too was wondering about lining a insert too! Plus I was thinkin of doing my dump trailer. It can't be that expensive. It sure would last alot longer.

    i lined my dump trailer....was a little leary at first about issues with material sliding out.....but it worked out great. i ended up selling the trailer about 2 years later and upgrading in size, but the spray in material held up great. i would definately recommend doing it. no rusting or scratched paint.

    I was reading sometime ago that the Rhinoliner was actually designed for the rail road industry. It was use to coat rail cars that carried corrosive materials, i.e. rock salt, fertilizer materials, etc. If that is the case, it would seem appropriate that it could be used to line a dump bed.

    Be sure to post some pics when it's all done:)

    You'll love the insert. I use the heck out of mine. Who is custom building the insert?
