Default Rhino Liner vs Line X

I am stuck at a cross road I have decided I want to spray the box of my truck and I am not going to do the do it yourself sprayed in liner. I did homework on both Rhino Liner and Line X. Rhino Liner will set me back $415 bucks and Line X is $515.

My question is has anybody used either of these products and what do you think of them both pros and cons?

I have LineX and love it...Ive had it for 4-5 years now and its like a rock, i haven't had any durability issues with it at all. The only con is that the sun has faded it alot. But LineX has an option to UV treat it for an additional charge

Edit: Never mind I didn't read your OP right.

Anyway, I have the Rhino Line "Tuff Grip" Very strong and nothing moves or rolls around in the bed.

wow, line-x is more expensive than rhino? Thats not how it is around here. its about 450 for linex and 550 for Rhino. In my experiences, Line-X is the better of the 2. I worked at a lumber yard for 5 years, and Ive seen work trucks that were beat to shit. But the ones with the line-x as apposed to the ones with Rhino, always looked better. Ive even seen rhino lining with holes and bubbles in it. Ive never seen that with Line-X. Also it seems like Line-X keeps the color a lot longer

IMO line-x is a better product hands down. its tougher and looks better. a guy at work has the rhino on his truck and you can gouge it with your thumbnail. my line-x has taken a beating and a half and still looks new.

Just a reminder: Both are great products but in the end its who is applying it that makes the difference. I have seen shitty line x and rhino line applications. make sure you get it done at reputable shop especially if your going over the rails.

Here's a comparison between sprayed on bed liners from a Superliner dealer:

I went with Armaguard since it was 10% cheaper than Reflex at local dealers. There are no local Line-X dealers. Didn't bother with Rhino.

I've had a Rhino Lining in my bed since I bought the truck. It's thick, and although faded a little, a good washing and some Mothers Vinyl protector and it looks brand new. And I've hauled everything from furniture, lumber, scuba tanks, engines and trannys. I haven't managed to cut or nick it yet. I love it.

Haven't had any experience with Line-X, so can't compare the two for you.
