    I've never heard of "GatorHyde"... I've heard of "GatorBaock", but thats not like a Line-X or Rhino Lining, it's more like Refinish Restorer...

    X2 never heard of it. I've had Rhino and Line-X and the Line-X is great. The Rhino ripped and the dealer won't warranty it. My Line-X is over 5 years old and has been abused with rocks that dented the fender wells, fuel spills, chain saws etc. and it still looks good.

    I've seen this advertised at a local bodyshop... Don't know how it compares to Line-x and Rhino though. Even the GatorHyde website doesn't really compare their prodoct to any other spray-in liner.

    LINE-X has been the market leader for spray-on truck bedliners since 2005 (according to Frost & Sullivan). That doesn't mean that they are the only good company, but it does mean that if you are #1, you probably have top quality products.

    Gatorhyde might be OK, but you won't get as good of a warranty. LINE-X's is lifetime nationwide. Sort of funny: On Gator's website, click "Products", then click "R&D", then click "Quality Control" (Page Cannot Be Found)

    Wow, that's ironic that a QC page would have an error. I took a class once where the professor wrote his own book, there was a section on proper spelling and grammar and it was full or typos.

    I don't know how the quality of GatorHyde compares to the other spray-ins, but according to their website, they have the same nationwide, lifetime warranty...

    Pretty funny about the Quality Control page not found though... Sounds like their programmer wasn't paying attention. However, if you click on the "Spray-in Bedliners" picture, it opens to their "Spray on Bedliner Quality Control & Product Testing". But again, nowhere on the site have I found a direct comparison with their competitors. That's why when I get my bed sprayed, I'll go with Line-x.

    I'm in Texas. According to Gator's website, there are 3 dealers in the entire State of Texas. They may have a nationwide warranty, but....
