I used to spray permatech - they're all about the same - key is preparation.

Can't really go wrong with either.

I have Rhino Linings. Now, the Line-X I've seen doesn't appear to be as a thick of a coating. Probably just as tough, but I don't think it provides as well of "shock" protection if you drop or bump something.

I have the LineX in the bed of my truck and i love it. My buddy has the rhino lining and it's wearing out! I'm sure it had to be how it was done though cuz i've seen others that are in perfect shape. The LineX was a little cheaper when i did it, and they did it a little different than Rhino would. They took the bed bolts out and sprayed, and then put them back in and covered them too to make sure it seals real tight, where Rhino doesn't cover them. The only downside i see to that is if you ever need to take the bed off... My truck doesn't get beat up, but i'm not afraid to throw something in the back either...

If you need to take the bed off just use 2" a hole saw and you can go through the bed liner around the bed bolts. After that peel it off... it isn't that hard.

I once had to peel off an entire bed worth of bedliner because our chemicals eff'd up. Took 2 days LOL to get it all off.

I've had a rhino liner and it was ok, i hauled alot of stuff and it faded pretty quick, then it peeled in two places and they weren't real thrilled about honering their life time guarentee. But I guess it's all a matter of personal oppinion.

Thanks for the input, Still hard to choose. I wish there was a difference that would make it easy to choose. Someone told me today that lineX would be better because it has less of a texture then Rhino and would look better...

I dont think the rhino in the pic looks bad at all, what do you think of that color grey on a white truck?

I did my own with the spray on bedliner stuff in a rattle can from carquest. Turned out really good. Only problem was I only properly prepped one side, and now the other said is flaking off.
