    I've had a Rhino liner and was happy with it - today my dealer suggested Linex as an alternative. Any reason to go with one vs. the other?

    I have never owned a pickup but based on second hand experiences Rhino is a good investment.

    linex seems to be a popular product now. it seem to be far better than rhino. if you google it, you will find the procedures are different and the linex has a better application process.

    either one is better than nothing. i just have a drop in and found it does what its supposed to. if it gets damaged i can buy a new one and drop it in.

    Just a followup to your post.

    I do commercial/municipal sales for a Ford dealership and use nothing but Linex. My customers are happier with Linex then Rhino and that's what I use exclusively.

    Linex has several advatanges over the Rhino:

    1.) Peeling: Rhino tands to peel due to the application of the liner itself. Linex actually sands the paint to allow adhersion of the material. I have had several customer who had Rhino replace them with Linex because they peel.

    2.) Product: The Rhino material is just like a plastic bedliner and allows materials to slide all over in the bed. The linex is more of an abrasive material which eliminates this.

    3.) Finish: The Linex liner has a better overall finish then the Rhino. Their application is thinner and leaves a better overall appearance.

    Hopefully this helps you out on your decision.

But for the bed liner it is crap the thing is pealing and when i throw scrap iron pipe in to the bed it will peal the liner up quick the liner is one year old and dont think it will out last the truck. i dont know who nissan uses but there liners realy suck just my 2 cents

    1.)I have Rhino and they sanded the paint for perfect adhesion. There is no peeling.

    2.)Rhino does not let a load slide around like linex. In fact, sometimes I wish it would allow at least some sliding for ease of loading heavy objects.

    3.)The finish is thicker on Rhimo and it lasts forever, not like the thin linex.

    A very satisfied customer speaking from experience, and not a sales pitch!

    I have had both on 2 different trucks.

    Linex: started bubbling after 3 months, no help from Linex, total POS.

    Rhino: is now 4 years old out in the FL sun.....not a single problem.

    Rhino also sands the paint before shooting the product. Stuff slides way less on the Rhino than Linex. I am hard on the bedliners too
