The do it yourself kits suck.Look really horrible too.Try finding a "Rhino" place theirs look nice, and can get sprayed up to 1/4 inch thick. Steve

Linex is another franchise spray in company. In our area, an S-10 short bed would run around $400. If you go up over the top add about another $70. Rhino is comparable cost. I think Linex looks new a lot longer with medium abuse, but for real heavy use and abuse, I probably go with Rhino.

no do-it-yourself kits DONT suck, why? how do i know? cause i sprayed one, and its quick covering tar like stuff and dries overnight and very tough, and at a fraction of price thay gonna charge u at rhino or whatever, all u need is big gun like 2.0 or maybe more and set to go.

Check with www.bedliners.com for there nearest installer to you. These people have a superior product and a network of dealer/installers to back them up. Their "superliner" is top of the line.

My brother used Herculiner in his truck, both in the bed, and the floor of the cab. He rolled his on with a roller though. It looks good and is tough, but it can be messy.

A guy on the Explorer forum got "Herculiner on his Hootus." I LMAO at that entire thread, funny stuff.

try schultz undercoating(it sets up hard & looks & feels like bed liner products. It took 3 qts for two coats($60) plus the cost of the gun - around $30.....all from NAPA. I also painted my engine compartment in my RR with it. I then put low luster blk over it.

I just did my S-10 with Duplicolor Bed Coating Material. I got it at WalMart for $35 a gallon. I used a $15 syphon feed blow gun and it turned out beautifully. It is a really good hard material and it lays down nice. I did thin it a bit to about 4 to 1 with H.E.T. so it would lay down a little bit wetter for a smoother finish.

Make sure you scuff the bed before doing this. I worked mine over top to bottom with some 80 grit and a disk sander. If you skip this huge pain in the ***** step, it will not last long.

Good to hear the do-it-yourself liners work well, but I don't have a compressor or a spray gun. Does anybody have any other suggestions for a roll on bed liner. Thanks
