Rhino Line : Over the Rails or not

I'm going tomorrow to get the truck Rhino lined, but I still can't make up my mind weather to go over the rails or not and just put bed caps on.

I'm not good with the types of decisions that involve me shelling out cash.

Halp!?!

Nearest Line-X Dealer is in CT, and im not driving through the city and up to CT for it. And the ferry would cost me more then fuel or damn close and id still have to drive.

The Rhino liner dealer is 9 miles away from my house

Now did you go to the 1st body line on the bed or 2nd body line? Further down basically where bed caps would end.

don't go to the second body line. It looks dumb IMO. Line-X is better than rhino lining.

Rhino looks like cottage cheese if they apply it cold (more chance of runs too and uneven spots). A few rhino dealers are starting to apply it hot to give it that tight look that Line-X already has. The 50% Polyurea in Line-X is what makes it stronger than Rhino. Rhino uses polyurethane.
I would love to find a place that had 100% polyurea, but Line-X will do.

I say over the rail to the second line. I like it better than the first line. I have to the second line but I also have a cameprshell so you can't see it much.

Here is a pic of the over the rail to the second line.

when mine got done, the guy lined it up with the plastic tailgate cover. then took off the cover and masked off to the bedrail line he just made. i don't have pics, but it's comparable to the blue one manehawke posted.

trust us, go over the bed rail. it looks nicer and is way better off in the long run.


yea, mines the second body line now that i've looked at other photos

I finally got to the Rhino Liner place to get it done. It was supposed to get tinted at the same time but the Tint guy was MIA. I decided to go fully over the rails, I like it and appreciate all of your input and opinions.
