Here’s a another story in our Time is Money category. Had a customer come in this week looking for relief from rolling or spraying his own bed liner. Not sure which LINE-X Copycat Bed Liner product the customer used but to quote Kenny – It took me all day to apply this and a week to remove it.After a short period of time the LINE-X Copycat/Imposter bed liner started to breakdown. Just rubbing your hand over an area caused it to crumble. The customer asks, Is there a discount since most of the prep work is already done? Feeling Kenny’s pain – Yes we will discount our Line-X Premium bed liner. Line-X Premium is UV stable and carry’s a Nation Wide Warranty. The truck bed was not not ready for LINE-X however. We removed any and all remnant of the old liner before recoating with LINE-X Premium.
Unlike factory spray-in bed liners Line-X of Bay Area and Line-X of Silicon Valley do not spray over the bed or tailgate bolts. This allows for easy repairs on your tailgate or any problem that requires the truck bed to be removed. There is a reason the bed is attached via bolts and not simply welded. On a factory liner – these types of repairs would require cutting through the liner to reach the bolt. FYI, it will always look like a hack-job unless the entire bed is re-coated.

Next time you go online and order your truck accessories, and plan on installing them yourself. Think about this, what happens if you are sent the wrong part, parts missing or worse yet – damaged parts? Best case scenario – the time involved with the project doubles. If you have a problem, we all know the routine – box up the part, ship it back to the manufacturer – wait for the new one and re-install. That is exactly what happened with this Retrax cover install this week.
Once the cover was completely installed the installer pulled out the cover and noticed a small dent in the middle of the cover. There is no way one could have discovered the flaw earlier. The customer was expecting their truck in 30 minutes. The customer shows up, I watch them walk around and inspect the cover, try it out a couple times and walk in the shop. Hey the Retrax looks cool and works great! All except for one thing, I told him. I have contacted the manufacturer and they are sending out a replacement. It will be here in a day I will call to setup an appt. The customer asks, “What’s wrong with it?” We walked out and I show him the dent – he was totally amazed that I labeled that a defect as well as had the replacement already on its way.

We had a customer come in this week needing a quote to fix a bedliner issue installed by a reputable shop. Note, this shop has been in business in the SF Bay Area for a long time and has worked with dealers, body shops and customers. This problem has been a literal nightmare for the customer for the last 2 years. This shop has been reported to the Bureau of Automotive Repair, State of California to help resolve this. Line-X of Bay Area has been tasked to resolve this. Background, This lady has taken her truck back to have the bed liner repaired – ELEVEN TIMES.
Each time the product would fail after a month or two and then back for another round of fixes. One other note, the picture below shows how much product a customer actually receives when one selects a Line-X copycat. This truck bed bed liner actual thickness is 20-30 mils and the price the customer was charged – $450 cash(had to be cash). We at Line-X of Bay Area and Line-X of Silicon Valley spray SIX times this amount making the bedliner – 125 mils thick(1/8 inch).
Next time you shop for a custom bedliner – Are you really getting a deal? Is that $100 savings really a savings? Stop in, we have been in business installing truck accessories since 1983. Mike’s Truck has been featuring Line-X since 1992. There is a difference we hear it from our customers – Check our Reviews Silicon Valley Yelp. Check our Line-X Bay Area reviews Bay Area Yelp.
