Cool Where can I get tough grip???

I have had several spray in bed liners over the years. The only one I didn't have to put a bed mat on to keep stuff from sliding around was the original Rhino lining. I understand Rhino now offers several products and the old lining is now called Tough grip. I have called a dozen dealers and they all sold Rhino hybrid exclusively.

The only dealer I found with tough grip was in California, which is a bit too far from Maine to get a bed liner.

Does anyone know where I can get tough grip in the northeast or near the northeast??

Please don't tell me how great Linex is, and how the texture keeps cargo in place. (with a rubber bed mat)

Is it Toff Bedliners, maybe? I’ve had Rhino too - they’re quite a bit thicker and more rubbery. My nearest is Dallas, still too far from Maine but my SD came with the factory spray-on liner.

1. Does not work!
2. Neither does going to the Rhino site in searching by products because the information is wrong. (I suspect the dealer just fill out a form and check every box box for products they apply)
3. Neither does calling Rhino direct, because they just use their own website, then give the same wrong info (see theory above)
4. No Rhino dealers in Maine, New Hampshire, or Vermont apply tough grip. They only apply Hybrid. (according to them per my phone calls)

Thanks.
But...

none of them install tough grip. Unless they were lying when I called.....
The Warren number says "the number is no longer in service"


Scott

But if you know something I don't, from personal experience, not a simple google search, Please let me know.

Thanks, but as I said, I used the website and spent an hour or so calling calling. This only proved the website was inaccurate to the point of uselessness.

Per Phone Calls ( from memory but not write down and a couple did not answer)
Mag outfitters _ Nope
Dedham - Nope
Merrimack- Nope
Ricks - Nope (This is what i remember but I'll call again) The website says tough grip but the example picts are not.
Salem and Danvers - I think I only called one of them
Skowhegan -Nope
Berlin city- Nope
Dedham - Nope

Brockton- Didn't call, as the website doesn't even say they do it

I thought the tuff grip was phased out years ago?

Thanks for all the help.
But..
I have googled, used the Rhino website and called Rhino directly.

I have spent over an hour calling all those dealers (within 200 miles- the longest distance allowed by the Rhino search function)who were listed as installing tough Grip. Not all answered but all who did or who called me back did not install tough grip and would not for me.

I started calling further south but got discouraged somewhere in southern Connecticut.

I am looking for personal or local knowledge.

Thanks.

No, they added other types, so dealers most install Hardline, or Hybrid only.

Corona California installs any of the Rhino products, but as I wrote, it is a bit of a haul from Maine.

No personal knowledge, but now you’ve got me interested......


There’s a dealer in Caribou and Biddiford according to this screenshot; just passing it along in case you haven’t tried them

good luck

Biddeford - Nope
Caribou (Although it is about 5 to 6 hours away) - Just called them "the machine broke a while ago but, yeah we used to.." I didn't even ask about tough grip.
The other only lists Hybrid as a product, not tough grip.

Thanks though.

One final thought.....maybe call your local Ford (or any truck) dealer and ask if they know any installers. Sometimes the dealer will get stuff like that installed for a customer before delivering the truck.

Capt Slow,

I have a new Super Duty, it came with Ford's spray in bed liner. It too is way to slippery. The first time I put a chainsaw in the bed and went for a ride, it slammed from side to side. My prior truck had Line-X, the one before that was Rino Liner. I agree the Rino Liner was softer, more squishy and it had more grip so nothing slid on it, however it was not as tough, the Line-X was a much stronger product, however it was a little bit slippery. Nothing like the factory liner from Ford, it's almost like it's just shiny painted metal it's so slippery. I am also disappointed with the coverage on the tailgate, when it's open, there is a very large area near the bottom that is not treated. Anyhow, I am going to treat my bed with Rino Liner, to cover the painted metal that was not covered by Ford, and to put on some texture that's not so slippery. Are you are at all inclined to spray on your own bed liner? It's a lot of prep work, but easy to do. All you need is an air compressor. For about $150 you can get enough material for a truck bed and the nozzle to spray their product. When I first started looking for a new truck I thought to myself I wish I had done it earlier in the year, as I knew I was going to spray on my own bed liner, (and I can't do it in the winter months) opposed to paying $500+ to have it done. The truck they found for me just happened to have it already done (a $500 option that I now sort of wish I didn't have)
