the truck guys near me sell proliner, and the other guys sell reflex. i don't like the reflex because the warranty isn't that good, and i've heard it tears sometimes (it's the softer stuff). the proliner guy will do it for $365 out the door ($405 if he does the top rails). he warranties his for life. wondering if anyone's had any experience w/these brands, and others too. thanx.
I never heard of those brands. I have a Speedliner and love it. There are now at least a dozen outfits that do it. Amost all of them use the same material. The only exception I know of is Rhinoliner, which uses a different material that is softer when sprayed on. On the other hand, the Rhinoliner is much thicker than the others. How much experience the guy who applies the liner has is as important as what brand you get. Make sure that the guy who's going to spray it on has a lot of experience. Before its applied, ask the shop about their applicator's experience. And also ask about the pros and cons of appying it fairly smooth, fairly rough, and in-between. Have the tailgate sprayed smooth and if you have the rails sprayed, have them sprayed smooth also. I had the bed and bed sides sprayed in-between. Some brands come in colors. If you do a Google search for "spray on bedliners" you'll get a ton of info. Tell the shop DO NOT spray over the screws in the tailgate -- the one's that give you access to the interior of the tailgate. They should cover them with something to keep the spray off.

We have rhino linnings and line-x...ill probly get rhino tho bcuz i get deals from them..and they do a good job and take their time on doin it right the first time....but jus make sure wherever u go they have a licence to spray the brand they are spraying and they dont drive ur truck out the county to get it done...bcuz we have a shop here that does rhino but they dont have the licence to spray it and they drive ur truck all the way to AL and dont tell u about it.
Silly boys, trucks are for girls

At the ford dealership they wanted 275 for the bed and the tool box sparyed...
Depending on the brand, that sounds like a killer deal.
I would look for a Line-X shop. I had my over the rail liner sprayed in at a Line-X place. They do very good work. Line-X is really durable and scratch resistant. I paid around $400 (cheapest place around here).
my dad has had three of his trucks rhino lined and theyve all been great. hes a surveyor so his bed is subject to extremely sharp bush hooks, wooden stakes, rebar(sometimes is rusty), and other harsh stuff and hes had no problems with anything.
The thing that sold me on Line-X was the fact that it is warrantied all over the US, at any dealer. I've already had a chip come out, but the place fixed it right there, no questions asked.
Rhino on the other hand, is only warrantied at the palce you got it done. If you move across the country, you're screwed.
Keep that in mind if you plan to ever move.
