    I have the factory spray in (which has chipped in a couple spots) My cousin has Rhino, and it seems to hold up well. I have heard good things about line X also. From what I see and hear, you really can't go wrong with either.

    I'm no expert though. That being said, I'm sure others that have more experience will chime in!

    Oh and as for the bed rail, check out the mods section for a cheaper alternative!!

    The product is only as good as the installer. So try looking for other line-x installers. Otherwise, maybe go with Rhino.

    Line-X. Rhino is more rubbery from what I've heard which may or may not be a good thing for you, but Line-X is bomb proof. Literally.


    Earlier in the episode it showed that this was Line-X.

    I opted for line X , like the other poster said it's less rubbery and has a nice clean professional look to it.

    I had Rhino in my Tacoma. Was great, like other have said a little rubbery but I though that was a good thing. Going with LineX on my Tundra, getting it done in the morning. I'll post up tomorrow and give my initial impression.

    Ditto. That's what made my decision.
    Exactly the opposite here. I think both are excellent products, but QC and after sale service are huge too... I'd go with whichever dealer/installer has the best reputation locally.

    The deed is done. Good customer service. Dealt with Brian the manager. They do 10 rigs a day. I dropped the truck off at 8 and picked it up at 5. They have it down to a science. Full clean coverage, you can see it's a nice even coat and what things they removed before spraying (it seems that some places remove the corner hooks and some don't... you can see that they sprayed over mine). I went with the standard mix as I'll be adding an ARE Z series as soon as it arrives. Not sure how much the deluxe up-charge was (supposed to have UV protectant.. looked glossy-er than what I got). Like all places I've seen they add the logo which I don't like. It gets glued on using black silicon which was not cured so I de-badged it as soon as I got home. Total was $573. Initial 4 word review... I'd do it again.

    My truck came with the rail system when I bought it 2 weeks ago. So, they removed it, sprayed the liner and re-installed. Good luck and post back when you get it done.

    I've had Line-X in my last two rigs... They have held up great. The old rig I had for almost 10 years. AND... I agree with an earlier post... I think part of it has to do with the installation and their prep and attention to detail. It came with a solid warranty... My guy gave me a discount as a return customer... And when I started to lay down cash on his counter... He cut me an even better deal!!! Good luck!
