    Ive read some previous post about people wanting to line x or rhino line their plows, but I haven't seen any posts on how the performance was. Im also looking to line x my plow but don't know if I should. Hopefully someone can chime in and let me know how their experience went.

    Never seen/heard of it. I wouldn't do it myself. It would increase the weight for sure, and likely make the snow stick.

    Agreed. It will also peel off. I had my bed line-x'd two years ago with their "ultimate finish" or whatever they call it. Supposedly it won't scratch and the finish will always look new. The finish in the bed still looks new, but the hooks where I strap my spreader in the bed have peeled off.

    wouldnt even recommend it.
    as said, weight and the snow would actually stick to it instead of sliding off.

    Absolutely possible but its complicated. The Line-x they sell for bedliners is only one of a multitude of products line-x can apply. We have had out dump trucks sprayed with a heavier duty product (approx. 100 times more wear resistant then the bedliner product) and it has never chipped, worn etc. Whether the cost is worth it is really the main drawback.

    I wouldn't. Wash it off now and then, and put it to bed for the summer with a can of fluid film.

    We were thinking about doing this with our spreader. The inside hopper and the bottom rail is where most of the salt ends up (with our spreader anyway) and that's where we were going to apply it. We just got done with restoring the spreader, sprayed it all with POR-15 then finished with rustoleum.
