I remember when the spray in bed liners first came out, the auto manufacturers were telling customers if they installed one they would void there warranties......I guess they got tired of fighting the people and simply said, "do whatever the hell your going to do, but when your truck breaks down don't come crawling back to us cause we ain't gonna fix it"

I am still partial to Lay in Liners, If I want to sell my truck I simply whip it out and install it in the new truck at no extra cost. I don't know about the rest of y'all but $400.00 doesn't grow on trees in my neck of the woods. But like I said in my first posting I have the spray in UNDER my lay in liner, double the protection.

Drop ins are the #1 way to ruin a bed. It ain't nothing but a huge piece of sandpaper that moves around in the back of your truck. Water gets trapped. Rust happens. I have one that was in my dually when I bought it and it is coming out whenever I can find the time to get a Line-X.

The #1 way to ruin a paint job is the let them SAND your paint job off before they install the liner and miss some areas of exposed metal thus allowing rust to start to grow. The #2 way to ruin a paint job is to install one of those GOOFY bra's on the front of the vehicle, instant way to tell all others (Look at me people I am stupid and I want to rub my paint off on the nose of my car)................hahaha

In my opinion, the spray in is the only way to go. I've had both Rhino and Line-X and both worked great. It's really a matter of if you want a "shiny/semi-gloss" or "dull/sandpaper" type finish. One word of caution, be careful with the generic brand spray in liners. My buddy went with a "cheap" brand and it flaked, peeled, and chipped within a couple of weeks. He took it back and had it completely re-sprayed and it did it again. He seemed to think the installation was done properly, it was just a crappy product.

I recently purchased my Ram and it has a plastic liner in it. It does the job for now, but once I get all of the fun stuff on my truck I'm gonna get a liner sprayed on. The nicest feature of the spray on, besides the durability and water-tightness, is the fact that they are non-slip. Even when they are wet you don't have to worry about slipping when you are trying to load something.

Glad I found this, I actually just got my bed Rhino Lined 3 days ago.

IMO, spray on liner is by far the best, hands down, period. I had my drop-in liner for a year, and gotta agree with "NPHBOB" its very slippery, had problems with stuff sliding around and breaking so I had to put more fragile things in the cab.

I got the Rhino Lining "Hardline" product put on my bed and over the sides just past the stake pockets, i love the way it looks and this stuff is totally invincible, I can stab it with a knife as hard as i want and I dont even see any difference. The guy that did it put in fine grit sand for more traction and that works very well (although I wouldn't recommend kneeling on it in shorts, it hurts)

Anyways sorry for wall of text, I'm just in love with the rhino lining, so many advantages.

I have a drop in liner. It came with the truck and Im gonna go RhinoLiner soon. I had 360lbs of sand in the back this last winter and the bags froze to the liner and would move the liner out of place. It has also marred the top rails of the bed. If I buy a new truck, spray on is definitely the way Im going. Until then, I hope to get RhinoLined (or LineX) soon

I have the factory drop in and love it.. The spray in damages your original finish in order to be installed. Most spray in installers grind the entire bed down to raw metal before spraying. This cannot be good in the long run ?

i have a spray in and am thinking of getting a truck mat for the bed for when i haul stuff like concrete to help protect the liner. the problem with drop in's if you happen to get water adn debri behind it it will scratch the crap out of the paint and with water getting under it it will cause it to rot
