Rhino-lining question

I'm getting my 2012 2dr JK Rhino-lined at the local shop tomorrow. It seems pretty thick - about 1/4" I'd guess - I'm wondering about having them do the top rail of the tub - if that's going to affect the fit of the hard top or the soft top.
Anybody with any experience with this? Any other "gotcha's" I should be concerned about?

Thanks for any tips.

Bill

I've seen pictures done that way, but haven't seen specific comments on functionality. I did talk to an employee at line-x and he told me he has done that before....he said what he does is he just sprays it very thin under the lip that holds the top on (I'm not familiar with how a hard top attaches). I've seen it also in areas where it is "sprayed thin" like he mentioned....and it is more like paint than bed-liner, must less textured than you would expect most of it to be...but it is still very hard and looks decent. I might talk to the person doing the work first and get their opinion....they ought to know the product well. Let us know and post pics!

Check into the line x before you do rhino, . Line X will mask off the areas around where they spray and do a much better job. also the rhino is a very rough texture. My dad had Rhino put in his truck and they splatered that $H1t all over the place.

I've also heard that about Rhino, that they get it everywhere and don't take responsibility for it.

I had Line X in a truck bed once and they did an awesome job. Seen Rhino before and compared the two I would go with Line X.

Covering the rails is OK if you're soft-top only.

I like the sandgrain look of linex opposed to the lumpy rhino. Post some pics when its done.
