Question Factory liner re-conditioner?

I was wondering if any of you guys (or gals) have heard anything about or actually used the factory bed liner re-conditioning kit? Mine has faded a bit after 14 months, and I was thinking of getting the kit.

Nope. The factory spray-in liner. They supposedly have a re-conditioning product available from MOPAR.

DO you know what the OEM spray-in liner is? What brand?

A quality spray-in should not be fading after only app. 12 months of ownership. No way.

Grub, I have no clue as to what brand they use. It is not a drastic fade by any means. Just when I open the tail gate & expose the small areas not exposed to the sun (which, unfortunately my truck is always subjected to) you can see a slight difference in the "glossy" factor it had when brand new. Hope this makes sense.

I hear what you're saying; I've just never seen or experienced it before.

Also have NFC what a reconditioning kit for them is; I'd never heard of it till' you posted.

My truck's hovering at around 16-months of age and my spray-in liner [Reflex] still looks like the day I picked the truck up. I had a truck many years ago [GM] that had a Line-X spray-in that looked sharp even after almost 7 years of the elements.

Hoping someone chimes in soon with assistance.

Good luck, brother.

I will look up the time line for when Line-X bought out the company known as GROUND EFFECTS ( gfxltd )
looks like Line-X purchased them just before the 2013 Rams went into production

that is not to say that they were not doing it before that

Thanks, Grub!! LOL! I too, am in the NFC club about this. I just figured I'd post it on here before a Google search. (Have had much more luck on the Z!!)
