This probably isn't the best place to ask this question but I thought I would anyway...

About to have to purchase a new truck. Will be getting a Ford. What's the best spray-in bed liner these days? I went with (what I thought was) Rhino Lining last time but it certainly hasn't held up like my old Rhino Lining and things seem to slide around more. It was a company that said they sold rhino lining but I am not so sure. Or maybe Rhino Lining isn't as good as it used to be...

So... whats the best these days? Or are they all comparable? Ford even sometimes does their own bed lining and not sure if that is any good or not? Would love some opinions. Thanks.

Rhino Lining
Toughbed
LineX

Any others?

It's been a while since I've looked into it, but 5+ years ago Line-X was one of the best. It seemed to hold up better than Rhino liner from what I saw. Now days, I'd look into from the factory. Not sure if they would warranty bed liner or not, but wouldn't be bad for a one-stop-shop for any warranty work if something were to go wrong with it.

I used to get bed liners and one day it hit me. Why buy a bed liner unless you like the looks of it? My last few vehicles I use the bed as intended and if it gets scratched up (it usually does) add a spray in/roll on liner before getting rid of the truck. Win/win...

Prior to this poor career choice I was an installer for Line-X and another company similar to them. Both were high temp units but one was low pressure and one was high pressure. Anyways, they were leaps and bounds better than Rhino. Rhino is sprayed on thick, and never hardens like Line-X, instead it stays a little rubbery and over time in the Texas sun it breaks down.

After a few years of installing them, I decided that I would never waste money on them again. They donít prevent dents, they all chip and gouge, and in the end, the dealer you take it to when trading it in will either want it perfect or they will dock you on the price because they have to fix it. My bed see hard use, constantly hauling rocks and metal, it looks bad, is missing paint, has big dents, but still hasnít rusted

I've been using spray-in bed liners for some time now and I use a place I'v alway's done business with. I never ask what brand they use. It want prevent dents from large objects being thrown around in the bed. But it does keep the bed fresh for those of us that only haul small items back there and prevents scratches and the bed looks better when you trade.

My experience has been a matter of who sprayed it better. Some places spray very very thin and that wonít hold up over time. If they spray thick you are good.

Had tuff liners in several and they were the best I have used. Mine came with one from the dealer (the dealer didn't do it though, they took it to the shop across the road that does them)

Speedliner would be my first choice, followed by LineX. If you choose speedliner ask the dealer about adding Kevlar.
