    Line-X is a hard rough surface. Rhino is more rubbery. I was talking with the Rhino guy and he said it is according to what you want which is better. He said that make sure you have a good shop doing the work, and ask around for references.

    Re: Line-X or Rhino Liner?

    I had Line-X in my last truck (sorry, no pics). Fantastic durability. I threw a lot of crap (scrap metal, wood, scrap drywall) in the back of my truck the 3 years I had it and the liner looked almost as good as new when I sold the truck. Not that I've heard anything bad about Rhino, but my experience with Line-X was a good one.

    Just my $0.02.

    Check out Ameraguard. As far as I'm concerned they are the best out there! My brother has had both Line-x and Ameraguard, they look the same but his Ameraguard seemed tougher and didn't fade like the Line-x did.

    Re: Line-X or Rhino Liner?

    Line-X is a harder smoother surface, and Rino is a softer more rigid surface. It really depends on what you need. Things will tend to slide around more with the Line-X, but it has always seemed more durable to me. The Rino will hold stuff in its place, but I am always afraid it will be tore up when sliding heavy objects in the bed. So it reall depends on you. One cool thing about the Line-X is that they can color match it to your truck!

    Re: Line-X or Rhino Liner?

    I had Rhino in the last truck, and Line-X this round. Both are great quality, but the Rhino seems to fade more.

    The Rhino is cold sprayed on where is the Line-X guy here does a hot spray. I like the idea of the hot spray to get it even more in the little places. Both were great quality and durable. I like the Line-X more I think.

    It is up to you on what you want, just remember the Rhino is about $100 less.

    Re: Line-X or Rhino Liner?

    I have Line-X and love it. I have never seen rhino lining so I can't comment on it. My line-X cost about $500 for my 6.5' bed. The line-X is grippy so stuff doesn't slide around as much.

    Vortex is better than both. Look into it.

    Re: Line-X or Rhino Liner?

    The two liners aren't even close. Rhino is disgusting trash. It's way softer, peels more easily, fades to white within a year or less, and starts to flake off. Go look at some used trucks on dealers lots with Rhino. They all look like puke. Line-X is far superior to Rhino in all ways. They are not even in the same ball park.

    Re: Line-X or Rhino Liner?

    I've never had a Rhino liner, but I have had Line-X and I've been very impressed thus far. I've moved quite a bit of heavy stuff (i.e. furniture) and it's held up very well.

    I'm going with the Line-x. Looked into several brands, and thats the one I like the best. Should be on the bed of the truck by the end of the month.

    Re: Line-X or Rhino Liner?

    LINE-X has an optional product called Xtra. Xtra resists fading and loss of gloss, is more scratch and stain resistant, and is fortified with Dupont Kevlar. Xtra is made by Dupont only for LINE-X and no other brand of bedliner has a product like it. It's available in black or for exact color matches. You can read more about Xtra on Dupont's Performance Coatings website. It's a great product and is absolutely beautiful.

    If you already have a bedliner, of any brand, and it's faded, LINE-X has a new PATENTED product called ReNew. ReNew will refresh the bedliner's color and texture. The ReNew process includes the use of Xtra, so no more fading.

    Don't forget, LINE-X offers a limited lifetime warranty that's valid nationwide.

    Re: Line-X or Rhino Liner?

    I have a line x and I love it. It's got a nice shade to it. I almost feel guilty about covering it with a tonneau half the time.

    I've moved about 800 lbs of sealant on a pallet for a sort of big home project at the parent's house.

    I routinely carry beam samples and what not that should scratch through the material, but it doesn't.
