    I went with the Rino. It has been real good - I am very pleased. There was a very slight fade over time from the sun but nothing noticeable. Very durable as well. After the truck was done it made the tailgate feel real solid when it closes. Not sure if it really has any con other than maybe it is a pain sliding a heavy load around the back from the tailgate forward because it doesn't slide too easily on it which is good once you are rolling!

    Now that I have it I wouldn't go with a drop in liner again on another truck. Just my 2 cents though.

    I had LineX in my old 99 Taco. i loved it. i never had a problem with fading or tearing. it also looked really sharp and nothing slid in the back. I wish I could have it in my 09. Everything slides in these new composite beds.

    Not enough to mention on this one. Give me time!
    I have a bed mat and that is more than enough for the 2nd gen but I used to have the lineX in my old truck and think that is far better than anything else on the market.

    My previous truck I really compared both Rhino and LineX.
    Went with LineX because the surface texture is much finer grained; I liked the look much better.

    X2. I compared Smith's Ultimate Linings, Line-X, and Rhino. Both Smith's and Line-X were comparable, got Line-X, haven't been sorry. I've had it in my '02 since '05 when I bought it, it's still holding up great, no fading or peeling.

    Have you tried using a hair dryer or heat gun?

    Gently aim the warm air at the scratches and maybe they'll soften up and you can blend them in? Just a thought....

    Do some research, I'm sure there's products out there specifically designed for plastic painting & repairs.

    i just used the DuPont spray on liner on my front grill, AMAZING, i am going to find a place to do the bed for me, but i am probably going to go with Rhino, i am doing the front and rear bumpers and the fender flares myself too, but for small areas i like the DuPont

    i had Smiths Ultimate Liner do mine. They have a life time warranty for their product. I even messed up my liner on the tailgate and they took off the liner and sprayed on new liner. They were great and I would do it again. If i remember right it was about 400 bucks over the rails.

    Go with Line-x. I had it in my 99 Dodge Ram 1500 and never had a problem with it. Sold the truck in 07. It will not fade, and it takes a hell of a lot of force to put a hole in it or scratch. Like dropping an engine block into it kind of force.

    One lesson learned though, do NOT watch them put the liner in. It broke my heart. In order to get the adhesive material to stick to your truck, they have to sand it down some. So watched a 6 month old truck get a treatment from a guy with an industrial size grinder to rough up the paint prior to the line-x going in. Seriously hurt my feelings to take a grinder to fresh paint.
