The nice thing about the line-x and rhino lining is they can paint match (if you choose to have that done). I think it adds a little more to the cost, but it looks great, and is durable as hell.

The company truck has Line-x on everything below the lower body line, the entire flatbed, and the lumber rack on it, and the foreman of the job site I am at has line-x in his truck, and they both hold up GREAT!

I did manage to put a nice scratch on the company truck, but that was user error, not because the liner is crap.

I have used both Herculiner and duplicolor. Herculiner is rough, soft and fades. It is relatively easy to scratch through. I would not recommend it for what you want to do.

Duplicolor is a harder, shiny finish, will not fade, but will chip. Again, I would not recommend it for your use.

Any of the professionally applied and warranted products would be superior to the roll-on variety for your application. You definitely get what you pay for here.

I went with a bed rug in my Ranger. So far, I am very pleased with it, but I haven't tried hauling much dirt in it. It can be washed out with a pressure washer, but I haven't done that yet either. I love the fact that it looks like carpet, cushions the bed, and keeps stuff from sliding around, but for daily dirt hauling, I would probably go with Line-X or something similar.

You would be wasting your money with the roll-ons IMHO.

Line-X or Rhino w/o question since you actually use/abuse the bed... but if you plan on re-painting the truck then I would line the bed AFTER the truck is painted... you don't want them trying to mask over the bedliner... or you could try to talk them into going under the rail and coming back after the paint job to add over the rail but may end up costing you more.

lol yeah i have been thinking about that, as it would make it easier.. i probably will do it after i get it painted, that would make it look better, but my rails are getting destroyed day after day, they have to be lined. thanks

i have the cheap-o spray in liner and i am defenitely wishing i went with the line-x. i just put a rubber cow mat over it in the bed to help preserve the thing. just goes to show that being cheap with your truck always bites you in the ***.
