- This is a special thanks to all our loyal customers who have made this the best year ever. Not only have you recognized that our bed liner quality is the best in the business, you have also recognized that LEER camper shells and tonneau covers are unsurpassed in quality and styling. Thank you again.
- NEW PRODUCTS!! We have always done concrete waterproofing with our lining material. We now are doing concrete waterproofing by Crystallization using a group of products with the brand name of XYPEX. This is some kind of Star Wars stuff. Check out www.imxtechnologies.com for more information.
- It has come to my attention that I have not posted any NEWS items for some time and there are several things I should tell you about. First, we will soon offer a 100 percent UV stable top coat. It has been tested with great results. All we are waiting on is the supplier. We will be the only liner company able to make your old bed, reguardless of brand, look brand new at a fraction of the cost of a re-spray. We are also going to offer a 100 percent UV stable CLEAR polyurethane suitable for bedliners, bras, or anything you want to see the original color through. Available end of year.

by JimCost Comparison
- We find that there are many of our customers that are very value conscious. They ask how our prices compare with our competitors. I can only answer that we don't make a practice of checking other shops prices. I'm sure that you can find someone that will sell you a "liner" cheaper than us. Remember, however, cheaper is not always less expensive. In order to reduce price you MUST reduce cost. We sell only the HIGHEST quality product at a fair and reasonable price. Our workmanship is unequaled by anyone. We invite you to our shop to see first hand what care our employees take with your vehicle. Check out our procedures, quality, professionalism and finished product. If we are not worth any difference in price, then buy your "liner" from the other guy. (We can fix it later.) All we ask, is that if you find a better job anywhere, you let us know about it so we can improve what we need to. WE ARE, AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE, THE BEST! We don't match the other guys price because he won't match our quality.
The owners, Jim and Becky Smith, opened Smith's Ultimate Linings in March of 1996, and have worked continually to maintain its top-rated reputation in customer satisfaction.
Smith's Ultimate Linings has served Albuquerque and the Southwestern states area with the highest quality product and workmanship in the industry, thus setting us apart from any other spray-on bedliner business. Our attention to detail and meticulous techniques remain unmatched by anyone else. Through the years, our large volume of applications has allowed us to remain the #1 Ultimate Linings dealership in the United States.
In 1997, Smith's Ultimate Linings was added to the Better Business Bureau's Honor Roll, a distinction that less than one in ten companies in the state achieve. We are also proud members of the National Federation of Independent Business.
Presently, Smith's Ultimate Linings is involved in various community-based programs. We have sprayed several trucks as donations to the D.A.R.E. and G.R.E.A.T. programs. We have also been a sponsor for the All Albuquerque Toy Run, as well as the Bob Turner's 2001 Golf Tournament.
It's important to protect your truck from elements such as rust, corrosion and other environmental damage. A spray-on lining from Smith's Ultimate Linings will do just that.
The lining is sprayed directly on the metal to form a tight bond, which prevents water, dust and other damaging elements from settling between the lining and the bed. The result is an attractive alternative that has many distinct advantages.
Air & Water Tight
Permanently seals out mildew, rust and corrosion.
Resists scratches, dings and gouges. The polyurethane is sprayed up to 1/4" thick. This is not a paint (thin coating) or a hard epoxy based product (tendency to crack, allowing moisture to seep in).
Eliminates damage caused by load slippage.
A Perfect Fit
Sprays on to the contour of a truck bed, easily molding around 5th wheel hitches, tie-downs and utility boxes.
Bonds permanently to virtually any surface, including steel, wood, aluminum, concrete and fiberglass.
Resists common chemicals including animal waste, fertilizers, fuel oils, pool chlorine, paint, bleach, turpentine and organic solvents.
Tolerates extreme temperatures without cracking or warping.
Forms a protective cushion between cargo and the truck bed, reducing noise.
100% solvent-free polyurethane.
No waxing, repainting or retightening required.
Ultimate protection for your vehicle in just a few hours.
Compare the Difference!
Unlike the ordinary, plastic drop-in liners, a Smith's Ultimate Liner is guaranteed not to crack, warp or peel. It is sprayed directly onto the surface of the truck bed to make every application a custom, perfect fit to the contours of your truck.
It Comes in Colors!
Smith's Ultimate Linings offers a variety of colors for linings that may compliment the color of your truck's paint and/or interior. In addition to black, the following standard colors are available:
- Dark Blue
- Dark Brown
- Dark Green
- Dark Grey
- Desert Sand
- Ford Blue
- John Deere Green
- Light Grey
- Teal Green
*Also available in optional custom colors.
Ultimate Application Process
To guarantee customer satisfaction with every application, the staff at Smith's Ultimate Linings are trained to follow a precise step-by-step process in installing your Ultimate bedliner, paying special attention to detail and quality workmanship.
1. Clean and disassemble
This step includes the removal of any dirt, oil or other foreign substance from the bed of the truck to ensure proper adhesion. Also, all rubber plugs, tie downs and access panels are removed and sprayed separately if necessary.
2. Taping and Masking
We use only the best Edge Cutting Tape to acquire extremely clean and straight lines, a quality that cannot be achieved using knives and ordinary tape. Our lines closely follow the natural curves and contours of the truck bed to give a factory-installed look.
All exposed areas of the truck, from roof to tires, are covered with plastic and/or paper. This is done to prevent overspray from getting on any surface other than the truck bed.
The paint is scuffed up with a nylon brush to enable greater adhesion. All edges are hand-sanded so that every inch of the liner is permanently bonded to the truck bed.
Each application is professionally sprayed to a thickness of approximately 1/8" on sidewalls and bulkhead. High-wear areas such as the floor, wheelwells and tailgate are sprayed to a thickness of approximately 1/4". Specialty items may be custom sprayed to virtually any desired thickness.
6. Trimming and reassemble
After the Edge Cutting Tape is removed, all edges are hand-trimmed and sanded to produce smooth edges. All rubber plugs, tie downs, access panels and hitches are reinstalled. And lastly, the bedliners are wiped clean. The result is a sharp-looking truck with the best possible bedliner around!

HI - LO Pressure
After spraying "Low Pressure" material exclusively for six years, we were given an opportunity to purchase a used "High Pressure" machine. We also purchased a set of "High Pressure" chemicals from Xtreme Liners, a company that would later merge with Ultimate Linings. After testing and evaluating the application process and material for approximately one year we were able to offer a "High Pressure" product to the market, that would live up to our standards for appearance, durability, high quality, and comparable cost.
Ultimate Linings USA had now merged with Xtreme Linings, making them the only Spray-on liner company in the world to offer either system to its dealers. We, at Smith's Ultimate Linings, purchased a new, state of the art application machine and have been offering either system ever since.
Which is right for you?
"High Pressure" material is harder and has a higher tensile strength than "Low Pressure" material. It has a finer texture making it an attractive appearing liner. Due to the higher strength, it is generally thinner. It has a drying time of approximately 5 seconds consequently it does not flow and fill gaps, voids, or dents as well as "Low Pressure" does. Because of its hardness, "High Pressure" is more resistant to gouges and cuts but less slip resistant. Hot air balloonists prefer this type of liner, making it easier to slide their baskets in and out of their trucks.
"Low Pressure" material is softer and more rubber like with a coarser texture. This makes it more slip resistant. Because it has a 15-20 second gel time it can flow into low places and fill them much better than "High Pressure" can. Due to "Low Pressure's" density and thickness, it is an excellent sound deadener. Body rattle and road noise are greatly reduced. For this reason we recommend "Low Pressure" almost always for vehicle interiors.
We charge the same amount and offer the same warranty for either system. From our standpoint, it doesn't matter which system you chose, as long as it best suits your needs. Our trained technicians will be glad to discuss your requirements with you to help determine which system will work best for your application.

High Quality Undercoating
Smith's Ultimate Linings not only offers the ultimate protection for truck beds; we also undercoat various vehicles-including trucks, cars and trailers-using the best quality product. As authorized dealers of Deep Seal™ undercoating, we offer the ultimate protection for the undercarriage of your vehicle.
Deep Seal™ Undercoating.
Deep Seal™ effectively deadens sound. Because of its sound reducing properties it does not need to be applied thickly to help reduce squeaks, rattles, vibrations and engine noises caused by poor road conditions.
Deep Seal™ is self-curing. As abrasives strike and mark the underbody, the thixotropic properties in this product allow it to move into the abrasion and re-cover any exposed area.
Deep Seal™ will not crack, peel or chip. It effectively seals out water and dust, and helps to prevent rust corrosion.
Deep Seal™ is real protection.

These mirrors replace stock mirrors with very little or no modification to the door mount. Power Vision® mirrors adjust six ways with the touch of a button, and each mirror extends up to a full six inches, offering enough width to provide clear rear visibility. The Power Vision® mirror system is manufactured to fit most modern full-size towing vehicles.
Retractable mirrors: When retracted, these mirrors offer the same aesthetically pleasing aerodynamic styling that comes stock on your towing vehicle.
Extendable mirrors: The mirrors will extend up to six inches, adding increased rear visibility and safety when towing. The mirrors can be retracted or extended to a position that meets your needs.
Front and Rear Break-Away: Mirrors will fold on impact, protecting your door, or for getting into close quarters.
Ease and Convenience: The mirrors may be adjusted from inside the vehicle, providing convenience and safety. For ease of backing your trailer, the right mirror is not convex so that the rear image is not distorted.
Increased Rear Visibility: The six-way adjustment feature increases rear visibility, alleviating some of the risks associated with blind spots.
New heated mirrors are available for vehicles that have heated mirrors as a stock option.

Customers Rave About
Smith's Ultimate Linings
"I just wanted to thank you for getting that part for the LEER camper for me. I finally got around to installing it yesterday and it works perfectly. Once again, it's always nice to hear positive feedback from a satisfied customer. I just wanted to let you know that everything's great and thanks again."
"I have been involved in a program that utilizes a structure that is an asymmetrical shape, is fabricated of several different materials (one of which is a very smooth polymer), and must withstand a severe environment...
"I found myself in the office of Jim Smith of Smith's Ultimate Linings here in Albuquerque and Mr. Smith and his staff were able to meet all of my requirements—and then some. Jim Smith and Dave Evans quickly educated me on the characteristics of the material used in their process and gave me a number of samples I could test.
"The result has developed into a relationship that seems to be infinitely more beneficial to me than to them, but I have never worked with a more cooperative group of folks who always bend over backwards to meet my needs, both technically and in meeting schedules..."
"These are the type of people who build a reputation any organization can be proud of."

"I have been employed at a high volume Ford dealership for over 27 years being the Recon Manager and New Car Makeready Manager. It is very important to me to have competent vendors I can count on to get the job done in a timely manner, without problems and no customer complaints.
Smith's Ultimate Linings gets the job done in a timely manner and we have never had any problems with their work. I highly recommend Smith's Ultimate Linings and his crew for any job big or small."
"Smith's Ultimate Linings is by far the best in spray-on linings I've seen and used. Every job is of utmost quality and every employee at Smith's Ultimate Linings is by far the most caring. I've used Rhino for my customers' trucks in the past, and Smith's has proved to use the best products and best craftsmanship—the Ultimate lining!"
