    Lost track many, many mods ago.
    What do you guys recommend? I am wanting to get rid of the drop in liner and get something a little more permanent. Yes, I have used the search button and I have heard mixed reviews from both sides. I want some pics and some really useful information to persuade me one way or the other. I know nothing compares to the quality of a Rhino lining or Line-x but nothing compares to the price of it either. I am wanting to do the bed liner over Thanksgiving break. Thanks in advance fellas.

    I prefer Herculiner but to get really good coverage you'll need 2 gallons of the stuff.
    When you factor in the cost of 2 gallons at ~$90 a piece, materials for sanding and application, and the time invested, it's not a whole lot cheaper than Line-X or Rhino.

    If you're dead set on avoiding Line-X and Rhino and want to save as much as possible I'd do one gallon of Herculiner and put the drop in bedliner back on.

    Just my $.02

    I sprayed the inside of my cab with duplicolor bed liner in a spray can the other day. Its good hard stuff but it is not that thick. I would want something thicker for my bed. I had line x in the bed that I took off my truck other day, and it was thick and hard. I plan on getting my bed sprayed with line x again. I have never tryed the herculiner stuff but I think you roll it on so maybe you can make it as thick as you want.

    I herculined the interior of my 85 runner and its held up great so far through 3 wheeling trips. None has flaked off and it hasnt worn through anywhere including the driver floorboard. I just bought the kit and used that one gallon on the whole interior. Herculiner gets my vote

    I prefer Herculiner I used it before on my previous truck, it holds and bonds much stronger than the Duplicolor that I have now on my other truck.
