Who's used what and what kind of results? I just finished up my bed bob (17" out of Long bed '81) and I want to go ahead and coat the bed with something. The canopy had been on the truck since new so the bed is in fantastic shape, ie: no rust. I thought about arma-coating, or line-x, but for the price those jokers want, I can take the money and put in the front Lock Rite, use a home based bed liner, and still have $$ for gas.

How much did they quote ya for Line-X?

Most home appiled liners suck form what i have seen- far as texture and hardness go...

But for me a home sprayed liner would be Line-X I seem to like it better then most liners i have seen so far- I've even sprayed the inside of my GLH with it <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">

I have herculiner and love it but unless you buy two buckets and do like 5 coats you will never be as thick as the spray in. I got mine for like 70 bucks from 4wheel parts when they had one of those 30% off everything sales so I did my rockers with it too. Not very easy to keep clean if you decide to do your rockers <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

I just did my entire cab in Gator guard II. Looks great, cost $40 CDN ($25 US) for about 2 liters. It is a 2 part mix, spray, roll or brush. It is pretty hard though and will not stop a load from skidding. I don't know about long term though.

i used a product called lava liner. it is alot more of a rubbery product than other types i've seen and that is why i bought it. it has been in my jeep for about 4 years now and it is tough! i followed the directions and prepped it like you would a car before painting and it stuck really well. i havn't seen it advertised lately so i don't knowif they still make it.

The spray on guys around here (Eugene, OR) are all pushing about $300 to do my bed which is now technically shorter than a short bed.

Duplicolor is the brand they carry at AutoZone. We used the brush-on stuff on my friends K5, and the crap peels right off if you scuff it with something metal. I'm not suprised to hear the spray-on is no better. They use sand for the grit in that. SAND! Went on as less than 1/32" after 2 thick coats!

Durabak was better. Some. Peeled off my CJ5 easily enough, but it's the most non-skid of the DIY coatings. Too rubbery to resist pickup-bed type abuse, but was fine where I wasn't rubbing seat belt buckles or door latches into it.

Herculiner is the shiznit out of the DIY ones. Rubbery enough to not be a waxed floor (duplicolor) and hard enough not to get wiped off. Really durable from my exprience. Everyone who's run it that I know has been happy.

line-X is my favorite spray-on. A frined has a wheelchair lift that swings his chair over the bed-rail and drops it outside the drivers door (Looks like an automatic engine hoist) so the cair drops into the middle of his bed, and after two years of dropping a wheelchair into the bed and scuffing it with rubber tires and metal brackets sliding around in corners, it's had about zero wear - and is still soft enough I don't have to worry about slipping on it in the rain.</font>
