Ute Liners

Unread post by gregcolorado » June 30th, 2011, 9:04 am

I am looking at getting a dual cab ute either a Colorado or a Triton (depending which one i can get at the right price at the time) and just to know what is the preference between moulded plastic and spray on ute liners and can they be put on after a canopy has been fitted.

Thanks Greg

A couple of mates had their hilux utes done in that rhino liner spray stuff - great end result, seems pretty strong stuff. The part of the ute your canopy sits on, also gets sprayed though...... (saved mates surfboards from damaging the traytop when loading them in is how I remember the top edges of your ute also get sprayed) So your canopy may have to be removed else you wont get that part sprayed I guess

There is a great DIY ute liner article in the latest 4wd custom utes mag ( no. 14) you might like to check out :)

The quote on my Triton had to include removing and replacing the canopy. It was about $800.
In my opinion these are a much better option than plastic tub liners.
My reasons are that there is no chance of water/moisture building up under the liner and ending up in rust, and a spray in liner is less wasteful of space in my opinion. A liner seems to take up more space for no real extra gain in protection.

Just my 2cents worth.

I rather liked the plastic liners I had in my Hilux.

Aero brand were preferred, as their tie-down hooks were superior (at the time).

I was transporting a lot of new equipment (cardboard boxes) so it was very easy to slide things around on the plastic liner. A tackier spray-on liner would have made life hard for me.

Quoted $770 for a rhino liner in a dmax duel cab, offer choice of over lip, flush with lip or under lip, so check with your supplier if you have a canopy, should be able to accomadate you needs. My local dealer is johnsons apholstery in mill pond rd in campbelltown. :)
You paid how much for it?

Appologies if it seems that I am intruding into someone else's post, however it seemed fitting that I continued this topic.

Is there a difference between Speedliner and Rhino Liners, other than manufactures? Will they be as good as each other, or is one better than the other. I am in metro WA and have so far not found a Rhino dealer that I can get a comparative price between the two.

Try Xtreme Coatings. They have a branch in Perth.

They did my Amarok, very happy with their liner and their work.

I got xtreme coatings done to my ranger tub. They have a branch at Geebung in Brissy.
It was $770 but I paid an extra $110 and got the outside tub rope rails done as well.
The $770 was with GST as I wanted a receipt.
I'm quite happy with the result. Only comes in black though...damn that hot pink would have looked great.

+1 regarding Auto Body Worx Malaga. I got my new bt50 extracab done this week. Sam's great to deal with and I have to say the masking job was spot on. Very straight and accurate. They took all the fittings out and replaced them after the spray.

Thing I liked about the Speedliner was the choice of colors. I got a nice deep iridescent blue which matched the Gun Metal blue of the car perfectly.

The guys had plenty of time to answer any questions. Highly recommend them.
