Can you rhino line a Tacoma bed?

New member to the board guys... Looked for the answer to this question but couldn't find it.

Went to local Rhino liner guys and they said that they cannot do 'composite' beds like my 2005 Tacoma has. I can't imagine they would turn away business, so can anyone verify this.

Thanks,
tim

They cannot do composite like what you have now because they sell their own mixture of bed type (rhino line)?
Or cannot go over composite?

Line X FTW! Rhino Liner is too rubbery and can break off if you hit it just right.

Oh and welcome.

line x has a manufacturer warrenty. the rino line has a dealer warrenty...
rino line is sprayed at like 100 degrees and line x is sprayed at about 170 degrees.
the line x will come out smoother and better looking and adhere (spelling?) to the surface better.

forget about Rino line

Line-X
Line-x is applied “hot” using a high pressure system. Because Line-X is applied at high pressure, it tends to be thinner (about 1/4″ thick). Thinner is better when it comes to looks — a thin coating tends to follow every contour of your truck’s bed and preserves the factory appearance. One other aspect of the thin coating is that Line-X liners usually have a very rough surface that sparkles when new. Some people dislike the rough Line-x surface — it can be hard on the knees and it can damage your cargo (finished wood surfaces and Line-x liners don’t mix, for instance). While you can request that the installer reduce the roughness of the finish, this will also result in a surface that’s less glossy. Finally, because Line-X uses more polyurea, it is stronger and more tear resistant than Rhino.
Rhino
Rhino is applied cold with a low-pressure system. Because of the lower temperature and pressure, Rhino liners are thicker (3/8″ of an inch) than Line-X. The increased thickness of a Rhino gives it a softer “rubbery” feel, and the liner’s surface isn’t as rough as Line-X so it’s more gentle on knees and cargo. Rhino’s thicker coating also aids in sound deadening, and the surface seems to “grab” objects better than Line-X. But all of these benefits don’t come without sacrifice. Thicker material also means a poorer finish — Rhino material doesn’t follow the contours of a truck bed nearly as well as Line-X. The cold application also means longer curing times and a greater possibility of “runs” in the liner surface. Finally, it’s not uncommon to see inconsistencies in Rhino liner thickness, meaning some parts of your truck bed are more protected than others.

Welcome!

This is only partially true. I work for one of the major suppliers for bedliners and I can tell you that the best advice is to go to a shop that can demonstrate prodcut knowledge and quality.

Line-x did a great job of getting more consistentcy in the bedliner application market but you can still get a crap job if you go to a hack shop. The brand isn't as important as it used to be, the product has become more of a commodity at this point in the lifecycle.

Take the time to visit the shop and check it out. See their work and see the level of cleanliness and organization. This will be the best indicator of the quality you will recieve.

And YES, you can spray the composite bed but it does require special attention in order to get the best adhesion possible.

They got this bed liner that looks like line x which is basiclly a bed mat that looks like its been line x'd. The setup comes with coverage for the interior sides of the bed. I forgot what its called; have a buddy that has a shop and he has a display..looks cool and is marketed to people who lease their truck ( why would you?) It's held down with industrial type velcro. The only reason I could see someone using this is to prevent scratches to their plastic bed.
