The bed is gonna be preserved

I am going to have the bed done tomorrow, I am haveing a Rhino Lining done. That will certainly save a lot of wear and tear on the bed. and just in case any of yopu are considering having it done, yopu need to go the the Rhino Lining site as there is a promotion going on and you could win a lining job, at the minimum, you wilk get a $25 coupon good at ANY Rhino Lining dealer.

getting it done in Black, even the dealer suggested it in black, he told me that some of the colors start to fade after a while, and its more expensive to have it done a color. Not to mention, if its done in black, it will clean up a lot easier when I use it, the yellow would like like crap after I use it a lot and then the back won't will look that great.

Yah, back when I was thinking about it I was quickly turned away from having it done in color. Even the companies where saying that it is a pain if you use your truck, plus I was going to put a bed cover on and the seal on the cover would just turn the area that it touched black

i got mine done. I love it. I wanted to get it done in blue but they didnt offer the colored Rhino's where I had it done. I'm really happy with it. Now if I could just figure out what to do with the plastic liner.....

Rocky, rhino linings and line-x linings stink...you need a factory Ford plastic bedliner...lol. Just kidding. bad sales pitch I know.

I guess I could bury it in theyard and make a pond out of it or something.

And yes...I agree...Carrie Underwood is a little slice of country heaven lol

well guys, its done, and they did a fine job. Just so happens, a real close FORD dealer is the rhino linings dealer as well. and I had them do a UNDER the lip job so that if/when I get a hard cover it won't have any problems sealing. I would put up a picture now butI don't have my camera right now, I will take one after while.

I been going around with mine just normal no plastic liner b/c I had my truck painted in May, but I think after the 1st couple of weeks when I bought this thing I removed it, it saged over the bedrals and I dont really haul anything. I would like to get it Rhino lined but I dont really wanna spend the money on it ya know?

I see that they pulled up the screws for the tailgate, what about for the bed?
my cousin had his company truck sprayed with a bedliner<coworker> did it and they didnt cover the screws or bolts.
that might come back and bite them if they ever need the bed off.

btw hard covers seal fine on rhino, plus that way your paint doesnt get scratched from the hard cover all covers will do it.. doesnt matter you can have them re-spray the rails if you want later

They took the screws off on the tailgate, actualkly they took tje tailgate panel OFF and sprayed it seperatly so that if for some reason I needed to get at the latch mechenism you could get at it easly. Remember, I had it done at a FORD dealer too, they tend to know a little more about our trucks then the average Rhino Lining Dealer.

Did you watch them do it? did they remove the bed and tail gate to do it?? I saw "how to" pictures on some linex webcites and they show pictures of the bed off....it looks sweet....cant wait to get mine done...

I saw that on grants pictures, of the BL......i was woundering how you got the bolts off
