    It gets warmer than when I had carpet but it is not that bad. However, the other night I forgot to roll up the rear window and we got about 2 inches of rain. It just got wet inside and the water ran out once I got back inside. It is really quiet inside now also. The cost was $550 but the installer said she underbid the job by about $200-250. There was alot more prep work than she thought. They had to disassemble the tailgate latch and remove the brake pedal and gas pedal plus tape off the entire interior. However, again, I love it!!!! New seats next month - BLACK!

    So I says to him, I said, "get your own monkey."

    Did you have any rust spots in the bed? If so, did they rhino line over them or take them out? And if they lined over them, did they say that it would stop any spreading?

    Please don't take this the wrong way. I'm just adding my opinion with the hope that if someone searches the archives on this topic they can make an informed decision. I just finished applying Herculiner to my entire interior and it looks just like yours. The only difference is that mine cost only $100. I've seen Herculiner applied to numerous pickup beds and I've never heard anyone complain about the durability of the product. I'm sure that many will say the same about Rhino liners as well. I'm just very pleased with the appearance of the Herculiner and the fact that it's do it yourself.

    I spent HOURS and HOURS clearing up the rust and fixing rust holes. I replaces a section of floorboard that was about 1'X1'. There was some very small rust I am sure but I got rid of most of it first. The installer said I should get rid of as much as possible but that would be impossible. I did what I could

    So I says to him, I said, "get your own monkey."

    Thanks. Mine isn't that bad, but lots of little, annoying spots. Oh, well. Better to do it right.

    BTW, did you compare Rhino with Line-X b4 deciding on Rhino? I could do either; someone said in another post that Rhino looks a little more rubbery or robust, and Linex a little harder.

    I could have done Line-X but I saw how Rhino looked and never saw Line X so I went with Rhino plus the price was right since I knew the job was underbid.

    I have seen both and the Line-X seems thiner and rougher, grity similar to sand paper. The Rhino seems a lot thcker. But the Line-X I saw could have been applied thiner than normal. If I had the money I would do the Rhinoliner.

    Good lord. The rod up that man's butt must have a rod up it's butt.

    Also....when I did the prep work I used some Por 15 in the difficult to reach areas and along the floorboard seams. I kinda poured some in and let it dry. I think I got all the rust....I hope!
