What is the LINE-X process?
We begin by cleaning debris from the truck bed. All hardware from your truck is removed to ensure that you have complete access to the truck bed in the future. We use paper, masking tape and a special wire-infused masking tape to create the clean, sharp lines on the edges of your truck. Once your truck is completely protected, the truck bed is sanded to create an etched surface, and wiped with a degreaser to remove any remaining residue from the surface. The LINE-X is then applied using an exclusive technique to apply a consistent textured finish for great looks and non skid. Once process is complete, the truck is de-masked and the hardware is reinstalled and tightened to manufacture’s specifications. A LINE-X warranty tag is adhered to truck bed and a LINE-X sticker is affixed for pride of ownership. A LINE-X Lifetime Warranty for your truck is entered into the database and process is complete.

How long does the process take?
The complete process can be done in just one day. Our certified technician prepares your truck and applies the LINE-X Spray-On Truck Bedliner which dries in 3 to 5 seconds. Typically, most regular bed liners can be done in 2 to 3 man-hours. Color liners and LINE-X PREMIUM can take an additional hour to complete.
Is there a product warranty?
LINE-X is the only spray-on bedliner manufacturer that offers a Limited Lifetime National Warranty. It is warranted for peeling, blistering, flaking, bubbling or other workmanship issues, and any of the company’s extensive network of 500 dealers nationwide can handle a repair request.
What is the difference between over the rail and under the rail?
First, the difference between over and under the rail is basic. Over the rail is when the LINE-X product comes over the rail to any line the customer determines. Under the rail is when LINE-X product stops under the lip of the rail.
Can you remove my factory rail caps and spray “over the rail”?
No. Once you remove the factory rail caps, the caps will be destroyed. And what’s left behind are a series of holes down the rails, which are difficult to repair or cover.
Will my accessories fit?
Yes! Bed lids, tonneau covers, camper shells, toolboxes, utility boxes and tie-downs all fit perfectly because the LINE-X product molds to every contour of your truck and does not typically interfere with installation of accessories.
Will LINE-X plug my drain holes?
No. Due to the fast drying properties of the line-x product, your drain holes will not plug up or be filled. If you do have holes from accessories or 5th wheel hitches that you’d like to hide, we can seamlessly cover them and make them virtually invisible.
Will LINE-X fade over time?
Unfortunately all bedliners fade at the same rate your tires and unpainted body trim do. LINE-X may lose its luster over time, but does not typically turn chalky or grey. If you would like to help maintain the glossy appearance of your new bedliner, we recommend you upgrade your bedliner to include LINE-X Premium, our UV topcoat which acts like a sunscreen for your LINE-X.
Can LINE-X be removed?
LINE-X is a polyurethane coating that bonds permanently to your truck. Removal of this coating is very difficult and not recommended.
Is there any maintenance I need to perform on my new LINE-X bedliner?
The best way to keep your LINE-X bedliner looking its best is to use a pressure-washer. For stubborn dirt and grime, we recommend using a safe cleaner like Simple Green or a citrus cleaner with a tire brush to scrub the bedliner.
Why a LINE-X spray-on truck bedliner and not the competition?
LINE-X is the only company that develops and controls manufacturing of its own material, giving it the highest tensile strength in the industry. The material is design to set-up in 3-5 seconds, guaranteeing a consistent and even distribution of material, with out runs or sags.
Additionally, LINE-X uses a high temperature, high-pressure system that yields a durable factory looking finish. It is the only major spray-on truck bedliner company to offer a Nationwide Limited Lifetime Warranty serviceable at over 500 LINE-X franchises.
Is high-pressure material better than low-pressure material?
Not necessarily. As with all things there are trade offs. The softer, low pressure material gives a bit more grip while the harder high pressure material is much more resistant to physical damage. This difference is especially important in hot weather where the surface temperature of a black bedliner can reach 160F in the sun. At these temperatures, low pressure material softens losing up to 50% of its strength.
Is the LINE-X spray-on application hot or cold?
Line-X spray equipment has electronically controlled heaters that heat the material to a set temperature, usually 140F. This lowers the viscosity of the product to give the bedliner a fine textured surface.
Does the LINE-X spray-on truck bedliner withstand temperature extremes?
LINE-X truck bedliners are rated for use in temperatures from subzero cold of Alaska to 250F heat of Arizona. If a have a higher temperature requirement (up to 350F), LINE-X has a commercial grade product as an option.
