So you had Line X put your liner in.
What did that run you, if you don't mind me asking?
It was going to be (without the tailgate) $450.00 for the standard or $525.00 for the premium that has the UV blocker in it; I paid the $525.00.
This was also after attempts at making Duplicolor Bed Armor work; that stuff is horrible - even with proper preparation. After 5-6 days of letting the small panels cure with the Bed Armor - I was able to score it with my thumbnail - not cool.
I also took a whole weekend sanding out every bit of rust that I could find - surface or deep. Then I did the POR-15 cleaner spray, metal prep spray, then 2-3 coats of POR-15... knowing that the guys at Line-X would sand most of that down. I wanted to be sure every little place that the bed liner didn't reach was sealed by the POR-15; and I also did this to explore/inspect every bit of the bed before the liner went down.
Honestly I was a bit apprehensive spending that much...
- But I saw a friends Rhino Liner and while it was hard and it stuck, it also dulled to a grey.
- The guys at the shop seemed genuinely interested in the Brat; there was another guy who brought in a new Tacoma and they treated him way different (even though his was going to be more expensive).
- The guys at the shop answered every question I had before I did the job.
- I also work at a location where people spend gobs of money for things that wont last nearly as long as the liner... so that made me man up and spend the money.
