Bed Liner Suggestions

New to this forum. Just bought an '02 Ranger, 4.0 liter, supercab. I need a spray-in bed liner. Anyone have any suggestions for a good choice? Heard of Rhino and Line-x but I'm sure there are others. The bed will not have regular heavy use but what I would say as normal use - fire wood, camping gear, fishing gear, mulch, etc. Thanks

Rhino hands down, tough as a rock, you can get a custom thickness on it depending on what you want - and make sure they spray over on the bed edges, works fantastic! I also chose to get one of those back heavy duty mats to protect against heavy weight hitting and knockign out a chunk of Rhino - had it happen last year during winter when a 900lb transformer box slid a bit too fast and knocked a 1"x1" chunk of rhino off... didnt scratch the paint underneath though, so its well worth it!

I have Rhino liner in my truck and my buddy has Line-x on his truck. The Line-x seems like its holding a shine better, and much, much tougher. I'd go with Line-x if I had the chance.

I had a local place do mine - they're not affiliated with either. In fact, I think they're trying to start up franchises of their product instead. I liked it better than the other two, but a lot of it is personal taste.

Go find a truck that has Rhino and one that has Line-X. In my experience people like one or the other.

As for price - the local place I used was 375 with the rails done - came out to 403 and some change with tax. Line-X quoted me at 600 with rails, and I tried three different Rhino places and none of them would call me back.

line x is the way to go for bed liners its the tuffest out. rhino is good but if you get one cut in it the hole thing is shot just pills up. line x it and be done with it

Line-X. It will take anything you can throw at it.

Just got a quote from local line-x place $524 for over the rail. Another 179 for the plus treatment which keeps the shine. Still waiting to hear from Rhino. There is a local place that applies Gator liners?.?. Lookin into that too.

i love my Rhino Liner, but it doesn't really get abused...so I can't speak for its durability. I just wanted to get the stock plastic liner out of there.

Some applications look clean some look nasty... I guess it depends on how many times youve done it but Im also kinda nit picky ...

Except that it doesn't get anywhere near the thickness of a real spray on liner.


I have friends with Rhino and Line-X, in my opinion the Line-X always comes out looking better and continues to look better. My buddy had Line-x sprayed in his Colorado 2 years ago and it still looks like it got sprayed yesterday. Can't beat the lifetime warranty either.

Line-X is tougher for sure, but will be more abrasive to whatever you have in your bed. that is the only reason i went with rhino, i carry rafts often and didnt want them to get holes worn in them. I would go Line-X for sure unless you care about the abrasive factor.
