I have always had a drop in liner. I never had a rust out problem either.
Point taken. I hearby retract my previous statements and issue the following:4evergreenlawns said:Well I speak from personal experience. I have seen the beating Line-X takes up close. My equipement is being seen on a daily basis. The line-X looks cleaner and is more durable than any bed liner I have ever seen. Ever see one of those bed liners all twisted up looking like it is about to just pop right out of a pick up bed?
When I sold my 01 2500HD with the Line-X the guy comment about what great shape the bed was in. That was after three snow seasons, and four lawn seasons. I realize you know the towing and recovery industry but you should see what a landscape crew will do to a truck in just a few days much less a few seasons. I could not say I have heard the same nor have I seen the same results from a bed liner.
Furthermore, I do not think anyone ever stated the Line-X would stop the bed from rusting. NOTHING WILL. You must not do much salt work out of a truck bed that only used a bed liner. We are not talking about the evaporation of residue from the road. I am talking about having a V box salt spreader lined with a smooth textured Line-X coating and the unit looked as good as the the I had it liner after seeing over 100tons of salt in one season. Can not say a bed liner would have done that.
What I am trying to say is if you have first hand experience those comment are worth to be heard. If you have never used Line-X than maybe you should avoid telling us all how bad it is and just let us know how strongly you fell about the bed liner you want to pay $150.00 for and used for the next 20 years.
Thanks and nice meeting you too.

I have a plastic bed liner in my truck now and had one on the 96 as well. I've been thinking of selling the plastic and going for Line-x next year because my tonneau cover doesn’t fit properly on the truck and I would have to trim the top of the liner and then the sun will warp it and then crap will get under it. I find it a pain to wash dirt out of plastic liner.
How well will the line-x handle to skids of brick or skids of sod. What happens if there are stones attached to the bottom of the skid and as the forklift operator pushed it in the truck, will this destroy the line-x? Would this be covered under warranty or are they going to say be more careful?
I was at the sod farm picking up a skid of sod and the forklift driver didn’t have the skid centered and the skid hit the wheel well, it didn’t tear it or make a dent in the well just a scuff in the plastic. Do I have to be more careful with line-x it cant be that strong?

My decision on what to drive is based entirely on personal experience, unlike your decision on spray-in liners. How many Fords have you owned? Just as many as spray-in liners??? Not intending to flame, but don't attack me when you have no idea...
are you sure?
