Rhino or Line-X?

I'm trying to decide between Rhino and Line-X. What are the pro's and con's of each, and is there a price difference? And of the Rhino liners, is the TuffGrip or Hardline better?

We have Rhino in our 2000 7.3 and it has taken a BEATING.. Still in there good.
But I'm wanting to try LineX

Chris, do you do it yourself?

Line-x yes. But, where do you buy it?
There was a thread that someone posted and he bought a kit for like $90 that came with everything.
A gun and everything.

Depends on how you're going to be using the bed, IMO.


If you're USING the bed, beating the crap out of it with all sorts of stuff being tossed in and pulled out, line-x will hold up better.

Rhino is "nicer" but dosen't hold up to HARD use as well.

I went with rhino in mine, 4 years ago, I use the bed, but I'm not real rough on it (Occasional dump runs, wood, 4 wheelers, ect.) I like the "rubbery" texture of the rhino a little better than the hard line-x. The only issue with my rhino so far is where the winch fairlead on my wheeler rubs, just behind the cab, center. I'm not sure if line-x would be rubbing off like the rhino is.

No i don't do it myself i deal with a local line-x shop and if you go to any of them start chatting and pay with cash they will more than likely hook you up with a better deal. as for the do it yourself kits i have seen a few but they did not seem consistant in texture plus seem to peel in a short time. might save a few $$ doing it yourself but if it don't hold up you got a mess of a time trying to fix it. You basically need the right equipment to spray the stuff and good prep work.

I vote Line-X. Generally they are comparable in price, and the final looks of Line-X is nicer.
