    The line-X guys here in alaska take very good care of our fleet of trucks and stand behind there work no hassels the one tow truck that was rhinolined down south before we took delivery started pealing and the dealer here wouldnt do anything about it so we stripped it and our line-x guy here did a awesome guy on it. He has even touched up stuff after a accident and most people cant even tell that he had patched up the corner that was hit unless youre a foot away from it .. Go LINE-X...

    go to each store. get a 3" by 3" inch piece of steel sprayed at each place.

    then cut it into 9 squares. bake one square, freeze one, submerge one, do all kinds of tests on them. then make your own descision. rhino has improved thier product in the past couple years, but i did my own tests and found line x to be way better.

    I've had the Rhino in my Z for about 5 years and love it. It's alot more rubery than the LineX. Theres pros and cons to each, I've seen rhino tear and I've seen LineX Chip.

    Is rubery a word? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Last I spoke to a Line-X guy, the diff between linX and rhino liner is that (IIRC) Line X goes on hot- And as it cools, it doesnt "settle". So when you try to get, say a .5" thick liner, a Rhino liner would tend to "smooth" out your truck- meaning that the ribs or anything else in your truck would be kinda filled in. Where as Line-X, because each layer application doesnt free flow, even after 1" (the guy showed me a cut away of a 1" application) the original shape was kept. PRetty cool, sold me on line X.
