I think they are alright, they seem to be popular. Personely I'm still a wood liner guy, haven't had a truck without a wood liner in 30 years.

Seem to take a beating, doesn't seem to wear off, box isn't slippery.  Line-x seems to pretty much have the market.

        Last truck had Line-X, after ten years I was pretty impressed so it was the first thing I did to the current truck.  Don't think I'd have a truck without it. 

        I've always wondered about water and stuff getting trapped under plastic or wood liners and rusting prematurely.  Have you guys ever had any issues with that?

And I was wondering about the spray in liners.  I figured water, a bit of salt, and a scratch in the liner could potentially create a  big time corrosive issue next to the paint and metal on the vehicle body.  :)

Thanks Mr. Ol Jr. :)

Water doesn't get trapped under the wood, all boxes have the ridges running in them the wood doesn't sit tight against the bottom of the box so the water just runs out the back as it would normally.

I have one, Line X. I didn't put one in at first but just about killed myself a few times with a slippery box. I have a fifth wheel hitch for my horse trailer so didn't want wood. I do put wood liners in a lot of our work trucks, they hold up fine but most trucks are gone in 3 years. Never had an issue with spray in's.
