    Did my front and rear bumpers and my headache rack and the lower section of my truck with that stuff and it turned out great, love the look and texture, not to gritty but not smooth. Perfect in my opinion. :D

    Pretty much ya.

    The self-applied Herculiner they sell at Pep Boys is about the cheapest you can go and get an "okay" job... and prep of the existing paint and bed are 75% of the work.
    Without proper prep, it's going to peel.
    With a proper prep... thorough cleaning, sanding, cleaning, degreasing, and application, it will do a decent job.
    Won't be as good as Rhino or Line-X, but Herculiner is around $100-$150 (you'll spend that much or more in rattle cans getting enough coverage on the bed to last a month).

    He's talking about doing the BED!

    What works on rockers and bumpers may or may not work on a bed... if it is actually used.

    HA i was about to say the same, buddy of mine used hurrculiner from tractor supply and it wasnt even black it was like a gun metal grey and way to gritty for my liking, i havent had any problems on my truck. Applied it carefully after cleaning, scuffing with a fine sand paper and a primer then the bedliner, comes out perfect, i too stand by this product!:)

    I did use it on my bed caps and they get quite a bit of abuse by my welding supplies on a daily basis (bottles, tool box, projects, ect) and its held up pretty well to the scratched and dings ect but i cant speak for the bed itself.

    Worst case you've wasted $100 or so and have to remove it or pay to have it removed when you decide to have a good liner applied by a pro.

    If you don't use the bed a lot, and aren't sliding tool boxes around in it, it might hold up acceptably.
    Personally, I wouldn't do it.

    Used about 4 cans on the bottom portion of my truck, took my a day from preping it to done, prep takes a while so im guessing the bed would be a weekend deal??

    I might give it a try on the caps of the bed or the rails so to say. the edges...

    maybe it will work out. i have a whole bunch of scratches around my bed the i want to cover up




    yea this is a good point. if i do it i need to prep it accordingly and so forth.






    worth giving it a shot. i see where you are coming from though

    No way in hell I'd do the bed in Rustoleum Bedliner. Unless nothing touched it . Even sliders and bumpers . A satin black looks just as good and holds up the same for 1/2 the cost of bed liner and sometimes you can get a can of valspar satin at lowes for $1 .

    havent used it either way, not sure really how condoms relate to truck bed liners :confused:

    OP grab a pack of magnum XL's and carefully cut them so they lay flat and cover your bed with them. if they protect it from bricks and whathaveyou, they will protect your bolony pony. :thumbsup:
