Why not do it yourself ?

http://www.tptools.com/p/2600,186_U-...Liner-Kit.html

I used that on my old blazer and it was awesome. Also seen a guy who did his entire s10 with it and it has been on there for a year without any fading or anything.

Plus it is much cheaper than paying a place to spray it for you.

I thought so. So my vote is still for Raptor unless you want to have a pro do it.

Spraying the Raptor was very easy and the prep work was also very easy.

Line-x is a better product then Rhino liner. Thinner and stronger. However, not available in DIY form and requires $$$$ equipment to spray it.

I've had it in the bed of my full size for almost 2 years and it has been used A LOT everything from fire wood to gravel and scrap metal without any issues.

Thats where Line-X's warranty comes in. It will all eventually chip. Question is, do you want to fix it yourself, or have someone else fix it?

i've only had Line-X but the quality was top notch, even battery acid didn't discolor it.

LineX wants 460 to do my truck bed.. If the other stuff will last a while its worth it to recover it in 4-5 yrs

Every DIY bedliner I have seen has not held up to the constant UV light. I would gladly pay $500 for a professional line-x spray in my pickup! I would have done it already if some retard didn't already hercuturd my truck bed and require whisking it all out.
