Spray on bed liner

12 posts in this topic

What should a guy expect to pay for a spray on bed liner? Just bought an '06 F150 6.5' box. Any recommendations for brands?

I tried searching the forum, but came up empty handed.

I thought I heard good things about lineX, but this being my first real truck, I hadn't really paid attention. $325 sounds pretty reasonable.

It has a drop in. What I don't like about it is how the portable, and everything else in there slides around while I drive. If I stop, I hear it hit the front, accel, and it hits the tail gate. Not fun, and not doing much good for the gear

I had a dakota with a Rhino Lining and I was very happy with it never had any problems much nicer than a plastic drop in liner IMO.

The last one i had was on a 2001 Ram 2500. It was put in by th dealership and i think it was line X or something. I had it go over the top rail and that saved a lot of paint scratching on the truck.

I also had a drop in and never liked that one. Some times it fluttered in the back, other times it scraped paint from moving it and most of all debris kept getting under it and molding.

Stick with a good brand of spray on for protection and cleanliness.

I think they charged me like $450 back in '01 from the dealership, so $325 seems like a deal to have someone else put it on.

I put Line-X in in '05 for $350 I think. I've hauled sleds with carbide scags, concrete debris, scrap metal and its never chipped, peeled, or gouged! Definitely recommend it. Also heard good things with Rhino.

Called LineX this afternoon. $499 to spray it. Earlier today, I asked the dealership if they would get me a quote from their guy. $500 is a little too rich for my blood at the moment. We'll see what they come up with. I probably should have worked that into the deal. Oh well, lesson learned...

I just have the thick rubber Ford mat in mine. Nothing slides on it, it's quiet and lots less money. Usually by the time I get rid of them the inside of the box doesn't look too bad. The floor seems to take the worst of it.

I would check out Herculiner. It's a do it your self Kit, but it is way better than those cheap walmart ones. I got mine for $80 a gallon and I was very happy with how it turned out.

I also I have a line X, and I gotta agree with everyone. If you can afford it do it, IMO it's well worth it.

I got my Line X sprayed over the rails 5 yrs ago when I got my truck. I don't recall the cost (under $500 I think), but it has been well worth it. I've had rock, firewood, cement blocks, dirt etc. back there and it has held up great.

    • Feb. 18, 2017 Chelsea Clinton took to Twitter this week asking her followers for some help identifying synonyms for the words “sick,” “horrifying” and “awful.” “I need a thesaurus. What’s another word for horrifying? Sick? Awful? Running out of adjectives these days that mean unconscionably terrible,” Clinton tweeting, linking to a story about an illegal immigrant who was detained when she sought a protective order against a domestic abuser. Clinton received a lot of responses, but one Twitter user gave Clinton an answer she never expected. That user is Juanita Broaddrick, one of the myriad of women that has accused Clinton’s father, former President Bill Clinton, of rape or sexual abuse. Broaddrick alleges that Clinton raped her in 1978 when he was attorney general of Arkansas. She responded to Clinton’s request by tweeting, “Well, since you asked, Here’s my definition of horrifying, sick & awful. Answer: Your father, Bill Clinton.” Twitter was entertained — and many thought Broaddrick should have added Clinton’s mom, twice-failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, to the list of synonyms for “horrifying” as well:  
    • Sonar units continue to be an anglers best friend. Still some suspended fish out there. Working every fish hard is key. Some fish are players and some pretenders. A good tullibee and perch bite in some areas amongst walleyes / saugers. The anglers working a spoon and a dead stick with a plain hook and minnow are doing good.  Key depth  29-33 ft in the morning/afternoon and 17-24 before dusk.  Best colors continue to be glow red and gold on jigging spoons tipped with minnow head or tail. Snow pack on the lake is disappearing and ice is still very good.   The Rainy River morning and evening bite has been okay. Know the river or use a resort or guide for safety. Warm weather and current will effect areas harsher than others.   The snowmobile trail is staked from Wheeler's Point to Baudette on the river.  Do not deviate from trail unless you are familiar with ice conditions.   Up at the NW Angle, fishing has really picked up. The dead stick is producing the most fish with depths under a foot off of the bottom. Lots fish in the slot, as well as some over 28 inches! On the Canadian side, walleyes are being caught in transition zones, with gold and pink and whites being the hot colors. The crappie bite is at 30 ft plus in the mud with Tungsten jigs tipped with plastic. Jigging spoons with a minnow head are also producing fish. Remember to move on to another species after you have your limit of crappies as these fish have a high mortality rate over 25' of water. Work through resorts and stay on ice road. Fish houses can stay on ice through March, walleyes/saugers through April 14th.  
    •   Because some door knob Atheist on a Fishing forum keeps bring it up even though they don't believe in it-oddly?  
    • 23 games in 41 days after the mandated break, and the horrid streak for teams after their break contiunes i think its like 3-13-4.  That is going to put a lot of strain on players playing that many games in that short amount of time.  We will probably be seeing Kemps at least once a week I would guess, but if he can be remotely close to his last start we should be alright.
    •   Where do you get your info?            
    • Thanks for the additional advice. I had been thinking that I didn't need the fancy EPS, ESP, etc.
    •   We don't need Jesus for that - Trump's already got it covered....
    •   Yup.   Being the policeman for the world is straining our finances but some seem to be blind to the fact that inviting more people to come over and risking more going on an already unsustainable welfare state will have the same effect.     Of course, we can continue to just print the money we need. And I don't think Jesus will be performing a Loaves and Fishes type miracle with our currency anytime soon.   I'm beginning to get what Del meant when he said go far enough to the right and you eventually become the left
