As far as I know their virtually the same thing but I think Line-x is a little more rubbery to support loads. I'm not a 100% because I went with bed rug.

I saw a test done a few years ago between the two and a pallet with 1500lbs was pulled from pickup truck beds and the Linex did fine but the Rhino got torn up in a couple of places.2008 Silverado_ Gone

Ive had both Rhino in my old truck and Line-X in my current truck. NEVER again will I waste my money on Rhino lining it's line-X from now on. Has held up much better.

Get a drop in liner!
I looked into both the spray-in and drop in liners. I've also had both on previous trucks. I opted for the drop-in liner in my '08 Silverado long bed. You can find info online about what they do to prep the bed for the spray-in. They sand the hell out of it to bare metal. The drop in is good because after you beat the hell out of it you can throw it away! You still have the option of a new looking bed or get a new one. For $185.00 I opted the drop-in with skid resistant coating and it was even installed for that price.
Hope this helps you guys!Current truck-

Drop in liners are fine but for best protection they need to be removed about once a year to wax and re-protect any bare metal spots caused by fluttering or sliding of the liner. This too is in the fine print on literature provided by some drop in liner manufacturers.
I've had both types of liners, they both wear about the same and both require maintenance to remain effective. It simply comes down to how much money you want to spend.
