Looking for rave reviews about the "spray in" bed Liner. I'm buying a new truck and am contemplating this route. Pro's and con's please.

Thanks,
Michael

All pro's no cons. Well, maybe one small con and that is, it will add about 50 pounds to your truck weight. Have the liner sprayed in before you have your hitch installed.

We bought a new f-250 in 1996. We had the bedliner sprayed-in just after we bought it and before we installed the fifth wheel hitch. I find it fantastic. The truck is now six years old, and has 130,000 miles, and the bed still looks like new. It doesn't ding or get old and flaky. The only problem is when it rains I have a lake in the bed until I can get the rear end low enough for the water to drain out. I love the spray in bed liner. GO FOR IT!

One of the first options I had to put in my new truck was a spray in bed liner.

I went with the Rhino Liner. It fits my needs and isn't abrasive line another popular liner.

I'll never own another truck without a spray in liner.

Besides the weight there is one bad thing about spray-in bed liners. They make your pocket book lighter. I love mine though.

Well worth it. As 5thwheeler says, have it sprayed prior to installing hitch. And decide beforehand exactly what and where you want sprayed.

Personally, I preferred the rougher texture of LineX to the smoother texture of Rhino.

Please help me here, I have the Rhino liner and I don't know of any cons with the Rhino. All the cons I know are selling RV's.

Recently I was in this same quandary. I found only 2 viable sources out there; Rhino and LineX. Having talked with many and with feedback from this forum, I concluded to have the LineX installed. I have had LineX in the past, and was wondering whether the Rhino would be better. While there were many pros and cons for the Rhino, the cons far out weighed the pros. On the other hand, with the LineX, the Pros far out weighed the cons.... *hmm, stroking beard*... I can't recall any substantive cons for the LineX.

Anyway, I chose the LineX, and as pointed out above, you can get it in various colors. My only suggested beyond choosing the LineX, would be to opt for the UV sealant. While the LineX hold up nicely over the years, it does, like everything else, have the propensity for weathering and chalking. The UV sealant mitigates this by 99%.

tnance is right, get a tight grip on your wallet when you have the bedliner sprayed in. But then again, if you spend $30-$40 for a truck whats another $600-$700.

I have had the liner put in all of my trucks after it came out. You won't be sorry if you have it done.
