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.

    •   Hopefully the trend towards "the other white meat" will bring down the cost of beef brisket
    •   No, weekends was when the wife could get you outside to do some yard work!
    •   They are now making a cloth made out of trees and it seems like the plant is doing just fine. I have not noticed the "smell" since the conversion. Always made me wonder why the smell was the worst on weekends. Kinda thought that maybe the EPA did not work weekends 
    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting.
