How many of you have sprayed in bed liners? Specifically, a Rhino Lining? I've been seriously considering one for my short bed Ram. I'm curious as to what your opinions are on the different brands. Also, how much did it cost? (short bed or long bed) Thanks.

I had a spray-on liner put in at the dealership before I bought my truck. It had a normal slide in liner before that looked like it had one foot in the grave so i talked them into installing the spray on. the cost (to them) was about $200 for a short bed. So I figure to the average consumer it would cost about $275-300. I think that it makes the truck look much nicer and even cleaner, the liner does not scratch and is tough as can be.

The rhino bed liner is real tough. One advantage over the plastic bedliner is that it doesnt dent or scratch that easy.

i had mine done by a company by my house called care free linings. it was $380 for a short bed under the rails. i dont like rhino lining because its soft and chips easily. the one i have is alot harder. i really like it, the only disadvantage is you cant take it out. but it wont rust and doesnt look bad when its beat up. it also feels more solid when you hit bumps, maybe its the added weight.

I don't have one on, but have heard that it dampens vibration. It also reduces outside road noise in the cab...kinda like that sound deadening material used in high-end car audio systems! As far as use-wise, it's pretty heavy duty!!! even if you do scratch it, all you do is touch it up because it adheres to itself. Im looking at getting it done, but I may do it myself and save some money...

Ive got a lining in my ram, but im not sure what brand it is. it has chipped off of the tail gate whe its been used a lot, but still looks good. it also goes over the rail to protect the top of the bed.
I am looking at getting a lining put in my toyota double cab. i got a quote from Armorthane for $300 for the REALLY short bed in the double cab. a buddy of mine got a chevy long bed done for about $400 at the same place. this guy will even color match it to you paint so you cant even tell its there!

Do you know where you can get the do-it-yourself kit? Or how much it is, I would like to save some money for other stuff.

I will be getting the Rhino Lining sometime in 2002. I had it in my 00 Tacoma and loved it. Very tuff and durable. It also quieted down the bed noise quite a bit too. I really recommend it.

yeah but most of those colored bedliners dont totally match the paint. and they will fade after a while and not look as good. i'd just go with good ole black. always looks nice.

Thanks for your replys. I'd already decided on the Rhino, I was just curious what other people had paid. From what I've seen, the Rhino is super tough. I saw one guy drop a huge loader bucket into his truck and it peeled up some of the lining. Rhino fixed it, no charge. I've also seen some of those roll-on liners start black, and turn kinda brown after a couple years. Thanks again.

I installed HERCULINER in my truck. I've only had it for three months but so far it is great. I think it looks awesome and it's super tough. Another thing I really like is the stuff I put in the bed stays put, they don't slide all over. It is easy to install and if you do chip it, it's easy to fix.

I put on my Dad's trucks (now wrecked, rolled, hit by a semi, and then caught fire). And surprisingly the Rhino bed lining was practically the only thing that didn't crumb. We had used it 2 years before the wreck transporting Arkansas Bed stones, which are really sharp, and it help up extremely well. Our Rhino costs us $190, and i put it on really easy in one day.
