Line X vs. Rhino lining

I am lookin into gettin my bed and other parts of my truck coated but dont know which brand to get. I have heard these two are the best but I also know they are expensive but at the same time a I have friends with cheaper liners that chip and fall off. Any thoughts?

I really like Rhino better, it depends on what you want it for, rhino is kinda rubbery so stuff tends to not slide around and it is very thick. The linex ones I have seen are hard and gritty and thinner seems like stuff would slide around a lot. The only negative I have seen so far is my rhino has faded some, it’s not as shiny black as it was originally. I had mine doe as part of a repair job when I smashed my bed, cost me nothing but they said it usually ran around $350. Shutterfly | Slideshow

I like my Rhino...the Original style is "rubbery", provides some padding. They have a newer "tougher" coat that is similar to LineX now.

I really prefer Rhino for bed liners but at work we use linex to line the Hydrochloric acid tanks in our steel mill picking line, if you know what that is then it says a lot for linex. That said I would still go with Rihno again if given the choice.

Six of one, half a dozen of the other! I have Line-X and dad has Rhino. The Line-X is tougher in my opinion but stuff slides around in the bed easier. I had a bed mat before the liner and that takes care of the problem. The Rhino is rubbery and holds things better but is more easily scarred and cut.

It basically all depends on what you want. They cost about the same and both will get the job done!

Check out Scorpion Coatings... I am in the middle of becoming a dealer for them. You can make it ANY color, Just add any automotive paint.
