What did you pay for your spray-in liner??

Looking to get the ranger a bed liner and seems like the spray in is the best way to go. Seems like people prefer Line-x over Rhino although I am sure they are fairly close applications, just mostly depends on the person/company applying it.

Saw an ad in the paper today for a local Rhino application for $350 (under rails) but this place gets horrible reviews online.

Called one Line-X dealer an hour away, wants $600 under rail, $700 over rail. WOW

Another Line-X dealer an hour away in the opposite direction wants $450 under rails, $500 over. Much more reasonable.

How much did you pay for your spray in???

$250 for line-x. i got a deal though. the normal cost was around $375, it was $425 for over the rail. i would pay $500 for line-x before i payed 1 cent for a drop in liner.

I guess $500 over rails isn't too bad for New York then!

can you tell me why people do not want their bed bolts sprayed? when I was talking to one of the dealers on the phone, he acted like I was crazy about wanting the bed bolts removed before spraying?

Yeah that makes sense. But why do most RF members not want their bolts sprayed?

if they spray over them it will make in very difficult to remove the bed if you ever have to without destroying the bed liner. a good dealer will remove the bed bolts as well as the bolts that hold the access cover on the tailgate. i would refuse to deal with a shop if they wont take the bed bolts out.

Make sure they take out your bed bolts! im going through this right now its a PITA. You going to line-x of Albany? I'm up in Plattsburgh. That price isnt bad I had Yipes do mine 2-3 years ago and it was $450. But they didnt remove the bed bolts.

Actually Albany is a bit of a drive for me, the $500 price is in Buffalo. The guys in Syracuse wanted $700. They said if I wanted the bed bolts not sprayed, "it'd be a little more". Perhaps I could just loosen them up for them and we could call it a deal...

But if you paid $450 2-3 years ago, then $500 works for me. Thanks!

Why would you even pay over $100?
Get Herculiner, it's very good, my neighbor who owns the biggest towing companies in Utah used it on all his tow trucks.
Stands up to everything. And it's only $90, but you do it yourself, which ain't that bad.

ive seen it, stuff sucks, plain and simple. it mght look nice but if you actually use your bed it wont last long. to me $500 is a small price to pay to protect my rig. i always think its funny how people will blow hundreds or sometimes thousands of dollars on stereo systems, euro tail lights, expensive wheels, window tint, ect ect, all things that do nothing at all for the over all well being or value of there truck, but will never spend a few hundred on a product that will actually protect it and help it last longer. blows my mind. ive got line-x in my truck and enclosed trailer and i will never use another liner again, period. line-x is simply that good and IMO worth every penny.

dirt, rocks, leaves, trash and rust from where the liner had worn the paint of the bed and that was when my ranger was only 1 year old with 10,000 miles on it. found the same in my 05 F-150 when i bought it, i took that liner out and threw it in the trash also.

I paid about $470 for mine over the rail but that was with a $60 discount for being a repeat customer. I called around to about 4 other Line-X places within about 100 miles and they only varied in price by $10 or so. Not worth the gas to drive anywhere else.

My '03 had a Ford bedliner in it since day one (at least thats what the previous owner told me) and since it had not been used hard, the bed itself was in suprisingly good shape execpt for some paint bubbling, surface rust, and bare metal here and there. I put an ad on craigslist the day I took it out and somebody came and picked it up the next day...easy.

As for the bolts, I wanted mine not sprayed over just because it would make any bed removal for any reason later on much easier. A fuel pump for instance is alot easier to get to if ever fails by taking off the bed. Plus it just looks more professional to not have them sprayed over. I battled the bolts myself (not easy by any means) and got them loose so the Line-X place would have no excuses. I also requested that they remove the tie down hooks and bolts before they sprayed. If you're paying that kind of money, don't be afraid to ask for what you want.

Got mine Line-X done for $325 over the rails, they did a very nice job.
Note: Rhino liner does not look or perform as well as Line-X, but that is just my opinion.

I still say for the best DIY liner is Raptor liner and Durabak. I have Onyx which is still Line-x. Just sprayed by a diffrent private owned corperation. I looked at the barrel and it says Line-x.
