    Has anyone done their own bedliner? If so which one did you use, how easy was it to do and how did it last and look. Pics and tips would be much appreciated.

    Homemade Rear Hi-Clear. Rear Bumper, ARB Front w/Fog Light Option. Superwinch EPi9.0s with Amsteel Blue. Going to make sliders, skids and bed cage/box, I have a camper shell for long range travel. Vision X Tantrum Lights for being a "pimp in the bush", Cobra CB, lots of tools and random junk that helps to add traction due to weight.
    I used Herculiner to coat my home-made rear bumper and the top of my ARB front bumper. Just tape off what you do not want coated and put on two coats and you are good. As far as longevity-I have only had my accessories coated for about two months-so I have do not have long term stats. The Herc kit comes with two rollers, a brush, and a scouring pad to scuff up the smooth surfaces prior to coating. The process is messy, but dirt simple. I am very happy with the look of the finished product.

    I to am happy with the product but cant say what it will look like in the long run, I did my tool box and sliders with herculiner ad I noticed the black kinda faded from the hot mojave desert sun but all I did was run flat black rattle can over it and it looks great, it is also very messy and hard as hell to get off of skin as mentioned earlier
