    the rhino liner place here quoted me about $550 to line the whole interior, up to the firewall, and over the bed sides.

    I have heard that line-x is better, doesn't fade?

    Im going to herculine mine for 2 reasons:
    1.) theres no rhinko liners near me
    2.) is can cost 3x as much if you get them to do it, as if you were to do it yourself with hecurliner...

    I just like the rhino liner because it is less agressive then herculiner and such.

    I have herc tailgate to firewall. Its cheap and it works. That said, it is very rough... you can definitely skin knees on it. It does absolutely nuttin for ya for sound deadening either, if you care about that kinda thing. All of that said, its a great product and if you do a thourough job of prepping the area u r gonna coat, its really durable. Only time I ever got it to scratch off was when i tossed a np205 onto it. Heavy + sharp edged objects can do that, normal wear/tear, it holds up great.

    btw, when ya get a quote like $500+... ask them if they'll cut you a deal if you remove everything, mask stuff off and do any other prep work ya can. Thats what takes the most labor and therefore costs ya all that coin.

    yea I have seen them both in person, the herculiner looks more like very gritty sand paper and the Rhino liner is more like a rough paint, I might go up to the place tomorrow and talk to them about it, I bet I could get it for a reasonable price if I gut the interior and maybe prep some stuff.

    Going to do mine with P.O.R. After I apply the paint I put sand on top and let it dry. After it dries brush off the excess sand and now it is a non-slip surface.................

    I had my 85 Rhino lined about a year ago. It was done from the firewall to the rear edge of the bed. They did the inside of the rear bed sides - I did not have the tailgate done. Cost was $400 in central Missouri. It has better sound deading characteristics than the original carpet and pad. It looks good and is very easy to clean out. So far it has held up great. It's the only way to go if you plan on keeping your rig for any lenght of time.

    Herculiner-by far the cheapest, but in my experience (I did my cab floor) It looks like crap, and doesnt do much for sound. Also very rough, sandpaper like

    Rhino-line, In the bed of my dads truck, slip resistant, some sharp edges. Have heard it is a softer liner and can gouge if you throw something like a brick in the back and the corner digs in.

    Line-x, probably what I will put in my trucks bed. Costs about the same as Rhino-liner, but has no sharp edges, and is a bit harder, so it wont gouge. However being harder, it MAY cause more slippage, I have never heard anyone complain about this so it may be a mute point.

    It's like a very grippy rock, and the applications I have seen were about 3/8" thick at the least. It looked very bling bling to me (it was just in a bed) but my g/f doesn't want it in my Jimmy.... /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif






















    Oh well, that sucks for her. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    My uncle sprays bedliners, he does a different brand then rhino/line-x. The main thing you pay for is prep work. K20, i dont know about the sharp edges, that on the floor or in corners? I would say it would be a good investment tho, i would do it in m bed/cab but my truck is all rust /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
