Line-X or Rhino Line?

Which do you prefer? Please be specific. Thanks!

BTW, I realize that the Taco has a SMC bed...but for steel beds, what is your preference?

i had rhino on my ranger. was nice stuff and only faded slightly after being outdoors for a couple years. cant go wrong with either imo. only thing i didn't like was when you had to slide heavy stuff and couldn't because it sticks to the rubber so well.

I believe the poll results say it all.

No to Rhino because once it's torn, it'll continue to peel. Also too rubbery and soft. Try and slide in 2x4's on Rhino and it will tear it up. Line-X will stick like powdercoat and won't peel, even if chipped. Can be applied thicker in high wear areas such as bed rails, top lips of the wheel well radius, leading edges of grill guards, tailgates, etc. Rhino is a self leveling viscous liquid when applied and can only be thicker in pooling areas.
That being said, cost is probably a major deterrent to the Line X, but worth it in my book.

I would imagine the poll results are they way they are because people are voting for what they have rather than what they have tried.

There is a big difference between the 2 products. They are both very good and offer great protection. The biggest difference is that Rhino Liner is rubbery while Line-x is hard. I have always used Rhino liner over the years because its softer and is easier on the knees when I'm crawling around back there. I have bought a couple of trucks over the years that have had Line-x installed by either the dealer or the previous owner but have always prefered the rubberyness of the Rhino liner.

Go to both dealers and check both of them out. I also found that Rhino Liner is easier to clean.

Edit:As for the comment about Rhino liner pealing. It will peel under EXTREME sharp edges but most dealers will touch it up for you. I never had this problem. People that use their trucks hard enough for it to peel probably aren't babying their trucks or worried about some superficial scrapes.

One problem with Line-x is you can dent the metal under the coating since it isn't rubbery. From what I saw on past trucks of mine - is Rhino liner is thicker in most places and absorbs most of the shock when something is thrown back there. Take a hammer to a linex bed and you will be able to dent the metal underneath.

I would only every do Rhino liner again. 1 crawl around a Line-x bed in a pair of shorts will make anyone wish they had gotten Rhino liner. But again, its all what you prefer. Both offer great protection but I have found that Rhino Liner is easier to live with unless you are sliding steel beams in and out of your truck all day.

Good luck

I voted Line-X but no one in VT has a franchise anymore. They all changed to Onyx. There is a guy who does Rhino. On my tundra, I choose the Onyx because of the harder application, it would not rip up to ski carbines like the softer Rhino. I had friend who had both. I would probably do either product on my side bars though. Winter salt kills everything here.

I've used them both and would recommend Rhino Liner. The elasticity and durability is unbeatable IMO.

3/16"-1/4" thick rhino liner. FTW
