Rhino Lining

What is a rough estimate to Rhino Lining the bed of your pickup? I think I would do the colored spray-on, White, b.c my pickup is white and blue. Thanks!

I paid 300... Zeibart was having a deal last fall here in Dayton. If you do go with white or blue be sure and post some pics.

It depends on a few factors such as length of bed, whether you do the tailgate or not, and there are also three types of Rhino Lining. With that said I've done my last two shortbed SCrews for $400 - $500 using the TuffGrip coating which is a little more slip resistant.

I am getting a Rhino tomorrow. I have a 2010 F150 Supercrew, short bed. I was quoted $429 here in Kerrville, TX.

If you want Rhino...OK, but if you want a color match, you might be better off with LINE-X, here's why:

Rhino dealers can apply colors in two ways, with Solarmax or another product with a urethane based paint as a topcoat. Solarmax (which actually is not a Rhino product, it's made by Bayer and Rhino just gives it a name) is a decent product, but they MIGHT not be able to get to the exact color because they are limited to about a 30% pigment concentration. So, if they can't hit the color with the 30%, it won't match. If they use another product (Tuff Grip, Hardline, Tuff Stuff, etc.), then they will topcoat it. The problem with this method is that urethane based paint is NOT durable enough for a truck bed.

LINE-X Xtra is not limited to the 30% pigmentation and it is durable enough for a truck bed. Rhino does not have a product like Xtra.

Here's Solarmax. The bedliner looks good, but it really doesn't match the truck well, not enough blue pigment.

Here's what can happen if you use a urethane based paint as a topcoat. By the way, this is probably Rhino Tuff Stuff (low pressure).

To compare, I'll throw in a blue LINE-X Xtra pic.

I have a 6' bed. Did the tailgate too, Tuffgrip. Wrote a check for $469.39. I didn't do color, just plain black.

I edited this post because I have new and corrected information:

Rhino Tuff Grip now contains some aliphatic components, however, it's also polyurethane (instead of polyurea). Tuff Grip has a rather low tensile strength (1,400 psi, which is 53% less than LINE-X!) and still has a 31% lower tear strength.

What does this mean? It means that Tuff Grip won't fade as fast as their previous Tuff Stuff, but Tuff Grip is not a very strong product.

I've had the Tuff Grip from Rhino for a day now. I am exceedingly pleased with it. I've read that some people say that it has a tendency to fade over time. I hope that's not true. The guys installing it for me insisted that it won't. Plus, I keep my truck in a garage or under some sort of shade a majority of the time when I'm not on the move.

Ya, I saw it. But I saw it after I had already purchased Rhino. I'm just hoping for the best.
