    Anyone have the Line X spray on bed liner/coating done to their Talon? I am thinking of doing the bed/cargo areas, but unsure if the line x will adhere well.

    Sounds like a great way to collect more dust and dirt back there and harder to clean .

    I’ll second cuoutdoors. It’ll be a PITA to clean.

    If you’ve got a truck bed with a spray in liner just get in it with muddy shoes and let it dry and then try cleaning it. Dirt clings to the textured material, but it sure is durable.

    I have had Line-X on my P5 for almost 5 years now and that stuff sticks like skid mark in your shorts and I always pressure wash it and it does not scratch or chip.

    @HUCK, it does not collect more dust nor dirt and cleans up very easily.

    Some comments are negative on the Line-X but I can tell you after almost 5 years I would NOT be without it.

    You are comparing the rack of your glorified 4 wheeler to the plastic bed of a 1000cc sport machine. That's not exactly the same line of duty.


    I have put line-x in the bed of every truck I have ever owned.

    However! I do not see any benefit to putting it on the bed of a talon nor do I believe it to be a cost effective solution for his cargo woes

    If I thought the bed of my p1k would benefit from line-x it would already be on there.


    If you think it's so great and wonderful for a sxs please do provide more details and examples why.

    I was trying to explain that I have it on the hood and fenders of my P5, it is holding up very well, cleans easily, does not scratch and it makes the plastic stronger, no need to call my little P5 a glorified 4 wheeler just because you are are an elitist with your 1000-3, we don't do that on this forum.

    Wow...making assumptions is a sign of intellectual weakness that offers up opinion over fact, I was providing fact from actually using Line-X

    No personal experience but I have seen this done on several jeeps and I think it looks amazing... When done right.

    You can tell when someone has a vehicle pulled apart and takes it to a Line-X dealer vs tries to "rattle-can" it at home.

    It would appear that there are different formulations of Line-X- perhaps some are more "rubbery" than others? We have a Mopar dealer that has probably 15 jeeps that are lifted and Line-X-ed on the lot at any given time. If it was that terrible to clean I can't believe a new car dealer would continue to do that to $70k Wrangler Unlimiteds.

    I have seen @Alan photos and I think his Pioneer looks great! It's not cheap to do it right, but if I had unlimited funds id give it a shot.

    Unclear to me why a Pioneer vs Talon vs quad would be any different in terms of looks/performance/cleaning?

    No doubt line x is durable, but my experience has been it takes a TON of work to make it look as good as the day it was sprayed on. I can never seem to get all the gravel dust off. It always looks dull.

    I have a hard enough time cleaning my sxs I dont see this being any easier to clean.

    I put it in all my truck beds so I dont have to see all my paint getting beat to hell. It also does help keep items from sliding quite as much.

    From a cost perspective I'd think it's not cheap to do to a sxs. The plastics are pretty cheap to replace....

    So...
    Easier to clean.....doubtful
    More durable.....yes
    Cheaper.....meh
    Help resale value.....not likely
    Looks cool.... to some folks
    Scratch resistant.....Yes


    If you're looking to check a lot of boxes I dont see line x doing that but ....different strokes for different folks. If you like it, do it!

    There is definitely a difference in brands.

    I suspect the dealer is doing it more for marketing and curb appeal than anything. Few of them ever leave the concrete jungle and are easy to keep looking nice.


    If I had a jeep I was beating around the backwoods with I would line x the quarter panels. It does prevent some scratches and gouges.
