As I work construction and my truck sees alot of miles on and off road, it's starting to take a beating from the bottom quarter including the bumpers. I don't mean dings and dents but paint. The front bumper has started to bubble and the paint of course is failing. I have been think about doing a rubberized coating on the bottom basically covering the two tone on the bottom. Full coating on the bumpers and running boards. But I am looking for a quality product that I can do myself and I am not sold on rhino lining prices. Also how well will it stick to the original paint? Any help or information will be greatly appreciated. I also would like to have something that will not be so dull and drab.

Not to invade your space 08, but that link turd sent us, it might work for you, and it sounds like if might work for me. I have an 09, and the bed is starting to look like s**t and don't like it. Sound like if I take the time to clean and rough it up and put that spray on, I maybe able to have it looking descent again, and keep it that way???? I bet I can leave the 5th wheel mounts in there????

I am in construction myself (Journeyman Carpenter). I own a 97
F350 and carry all kinds of hand and power tools. After I purchased
the truck I started looking into spray-on bed liner. My son who
at that time had a Dodge had either Rhino liner or Line X spray on
bed liner. He did not recommend either because they are a hot spray
application. I found on the internet a product called Al's Bed liner.
It is a cold application and had my cousin whom owns his own body
shop to apply. The ONLY downfall is I wish I would have either sprayed
more on the tailgate or put on a tailgate cap. Other than that I have
had absolutely no peeling or chipping or cracking. Perfect Chit IMO:wink:

I assume most of these are a roll or brush on application? Or can you spray them on? That would seem to be the way to go I would think and that thread is exactly what I was looking for. That's the way I think I am gonna go. Although his is a little more as I won't do the inside of the doors. Any other info anyone has would be great and as soon as I start I will keep updates but it will be a bit

Go online and look up Al's Spray-on bed liner. It is what is called
a cold application as it takes about 24 hours to cure and it is in
2 parts but you can apply it with a hopper style sprayer and do it
yourself if you would like. Give it a look because like I stated,
It's very good material.

Bad pictures, sorry...but I just finished mine last week. Used a product called EZ Liner (Canada only I believe) but it is comparable to the other 'kits' you can buy off the shelf at any auto parts store. I painted the entire truck at the same time so the prep work was already being done. I think it looks awesome and it is very tough. Yes, you can scratch it off if you really try, but a quick touch up with a spray bomb is a lot easier than repainting!

I have line x in my work truck and have yet to see it fail. I would pay up and get it. Plus it comes with a life time warranty.

We have a local rhino liner dealer,this still hurts but he quoted $4,000 and I have to do all the prep other then tape. I died a little bit when I heard this. Same dealer wanted $890 to do my truck bed. This just seems outrageous to me

That's stupid. Line x here is $550 for the bed and $600 for the rockers.

I'm looking at the raptor spray on bed liner it is like rhino and linex but comes as a 2 part mix and spray gun. [ame]http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B003TQIIPG/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1458860093&sr=8-1&pi=SX200_QL40&keywords=raptor+liner&dpPl=1&dpID=51qZIJ-DKwL&ref=plSrch[/ame]

I can't believe how high just a bed spray is for a much lesser product in some places.

For bed only on a new vehicle Ultimate Lining is $500, and 'new only' price is because they take the bed off and cook it a little after they spray. Old vehicles they don't because too much chit breaks in taking it off and they just don't care to deal

If you want to get fancy with quarters and undercarriage then they quote by time and material.

What does the hot or cold application type have to do with being able to recommend either of those? If anything, the hot application gives a better bond and is part of why every Joe Blow can't properly apply those brands in their driveway.

My '97 has had Rhino liner in it since the fall of '97. The only "failure" points in the entire bed are the result of where I didn't raise a gooseneck trailer quite high enough and it drug the liner when I pulled out from under the trailer. The area that was damaged has remained the same size since that happened in 2003, with no additional liner separating from the bed.

There are a few owner applied liners that are better than others, but none of them are as good as a professionally applied product like Rhino or LineX. How many brands have been around as long as those two?

I would agree that $4k is ludicrous. In my area it's around $600 for 1/8" thick Rhino and another $150-200 to take it to 1/4" thick.

Having experience with LineX and Rhino I prefer the Rhino just for the fact that LineX is slick and stuff slides around too easy. Also it will chip and peel. Rhino will fade if exposed to sunlight and lose its shiny sheen.

I bought my F150 in December '05. In early January of '06, I had Rhino Liner sprayed in. I just sold that truck to my stepdad and bought a '17 F250. When he drove the truck off, the liner looked just as good as it did the day I picked it up from the shop. I recommend Rhino to every person who asks me. It was well worth the $300 I paid to have it put in almost twelve years ago and I'm confident that it will still be there when the old girl goes to the junkyard.
