Spray In Bed Liners

I think my next mod will be a spray in bed liner. My biggest concern is where to stop the liner at. I'm going over the rail but just don't know where stopping it would look best.

Can yall post pics of where yalls are?

I stopped here b/c otherwise I'd have to go all the way to the decal, and I felt that would look dumb with that much liner:

If you are gonna have it sprayed, just cover the whole upper bed rail. You won't regret it.

I have a tiny dent in the top top of the tailgate. I need to go at least that far down to cover it up. I'm on my phone so once I get home ima see where your line is on my computer.

Here's one of my tailgate. It comes down about 1.5" and covers my 3 huge dents (can't really see them in the pic, but they are right on top like somebody dropped a 6x6 post there loading or unloading at some point in time).

I have my Line-X over the bed rail. I thought it was a bit much at first, but when I installed my tonneau cover (Roll-n-Lock), it turned out looking really nice. Plus it hides a nice scratch I got when by buddy slammed a U-Haul furniture dolly into the top of the tailgate when it was down.

Mine is similar to pawlak's. Search my name. I've posted pics before for another member on this exact same issue. Evan, that is pretty far to go over the edge. Why would you have to go that far?

I never really liked over the rail either but I'm very glad I did it on my bed. Looks pretty good. As you can see from the pics, I also had them spray it down the the very bottom of the tailgate inside lip also.

One suggestion....I fought with my nearly 8 year old bed bolts that had never been out for several hours but I finally got them loose (Air impact, large breaker bar, some sweat, and a HD Torx bit) so the place would have no excuses as to not remove them before spraying the Line-x on. Also, I loosened the tie-down hooks and interior tailgate panel screws (even bought new stainless ones) and took it up there that way and asked that they not spray over any of that stuff either. Turned out just like I wanted. I personally hate it when they spray over all the bolts and stuff.

I would have to go that far b/c @ home, taping a straight line down half way between where I stopped and where the decal is would be next to impossible on that arced surface.

The factory decal is the next straight line asside from the one I followed.

Its very much more curved than a Ranger's bed, and I would have had to fight two different arcing curves to mask a straight line about 1/2 way between the decal and where I ended up stopping (which was what I originally intended and wanted....). But I soon found out that wasn't going to happen with my wee little amounts of patience.

Thus I followed the straight line that forms the crease on the upper rail. No guess work there, its straight, just how I like it. I cannot say it would be had I done the traditional line that professionals usually stop at.

NRPawlak, good looking spray job! Very well done.

Pics look good - good job on the liners.

Just out of curiosity, what does it cost these days to do a spray-on liner.

The first year I had my truck, I was at a local Canadian Tire Store (sort of a Canadian AutoZone, Pep Boys kind of operation that has since morphed into a big box garden centre, sports equipment, home furniture, tool, kitchen appliance, etc. store but kept the tires, auto parts and accessories that now are a minor part of their operation) when I found a "do-it-yourself" Rhino liner that was mixed, and then painted/rollered on (by me).

The kit was about $50.00 CDN at that time (about 7 1/2 yrs ago), and the price was right - the job, however, doesn't look nearly as nice as your posts (naturally), but that's ok, I have a bed liner that's on top of that anyway.

Anyway, reading these posts, just curious what a professional spray-on goes for now.

Last year, mine was about CAD$400 before taxes...under the rail and excluded the tail gate.

Mine was a Line-Xtra spayed over the rail and cost $500 total.

klc317: Such a good piece of advice! My Line-X installer/dealer was Line-X of Connecticut LLC in Waterbury CT. They did an amazing job, removed the bed bolts and removed and separately sprayed the interior tailgate panel. I was completely satisfied with the work! When installers spray over the bolts/hooks/etc ... you get backed into a corner if you have to remove them later. This way you can remove what you need to without chipping into the liner.

Around here its $580 for Rhinolining over the rail. I love over the rail just because its more protection. As for where, thats totally up to you. Its your truck. Look at some pics and decide what you like

Under most conditions, I would imagine that a spray-on liner is as good as, or better, than a regular type bed-liner.

Only condition I could se where a regular type pop-in liner may be more durable is if you're using the bed to haul stuff like dirt, gravel, screening, etc, and would have to shovel/scrape things out - then the spray-on might be more prone to wear.

Also, if you want to take the liner with you into a new replacement truck if it's the same (type/dimensions of bed).

Is that about right?
