I've seen several posts lately about bedliners, and I thought you all would like to see what a bedlined 4Runner with the whole interior in it looks like.

FYI: That is NOT rust in the before pics. I went on a trail ride after gutting the interior, and packed the carpet padding (glued to floor)with mud. The body was in perfect conditon, just dirty:

And here's my dash shot: You can see the tach added to the steering column, the grant steering wheel, and the CB mounted below the CD player. Yup, I'm all about creature comforts! <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

<font color="yellow">I paid $5150 for mine (They tend to be pricey down south) With a perfectly straight body, 125K Mi., and a perfect drivetrain.

It was all stock except for the 4" IFS lift and 32" BFG-ATs.

Now it has a winch, rear locker, 33" MT/Rs, and the only undamaged exterior panel is the drivers door.</font>

Goat, it was brushed on. You can see the roller (bright blue) sitting on the tailgate in <a href="http://www.people.memphis.edu/~ecmills/herculiner/tools_liner_drying.jpg">this pic.</a>

For your information guys, here's a brief summary of all the liners I've got PERSONAL experience with:
  • DURABAK: Had it in my CJ5. Lots like Herculiner, but a quite a bit softer - easy to scracth.
  • DUPLICOLOR (ROLL ON GALLON):Sucked. We put it in a K5, and it's starting to peel off after 3 months. Textured like black paint with sand in it.
  • DUPLICOLOR (SPRAY CANS): Rocks. Fastest tp apply. Textured like you coated it in sandpaper. Currently on my roll bar and snorkel. Been on the <a href="http://www.pirate4x4.com/cgi-bin/ubb/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=6&t=009588">snorkel</a> for about 6 months, and can't be hurt by a pressure washer (the ones at the DIY carwashed) 2 inches away from the stuff.
  • HERCULINER: Been on my friends Sammy for about a year. He's got it on his full cage, and it's only been damaged when he rolled it (once onto roof, 2 side flops). So far I like it, but it's a lot of work to apply.

If I had to do it again (after applying 3 roll-onbedliners) I'd use duplicolor spray-on from autozone. It can be repaired without breaking out the roller and dropcloths - and don't DARE forget gloves with one of these, unless you like black hands. Fast Orange won't even touch it... <IMG SRC="smilies/crybaby2.gif" border="0">

I used this stuff on my bumper, and whenever I scuff it on a tree, I simply spray it again real quick, and it's good to go.</font>

Im an old pro at Hurculiner and my advice is it is the best but dont get it on your hands or any other uncovered area it does not come off when it drys!

I know. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> Which is why I said the above. The first bedliner I did I didn't use gloves, and paid for it. Bet your ass I did this time.

Also, I still have the boots I wore when I did the durabak. It's still on them after 2 and a half years.</font>

The only thing I don't like with Herculiner is it a PITA to get clean. The trail dust just won't hose off, you gotta scrub it with a stiff bristle brush. Even then it still looks like it needs cleaned. Herculiner does fade in the sun also, now it looks flat black. Applied it to the interior of my cruzah bout 2 years ago, and it still holdin up! <IMG SRC="smilies/skull.gif" border="0">

<font color="yellow">Yup. It's hard to make it "look" clean because it's so gritty it's hard to get all the dirt out of the little crevices. I have the same problem with my <a href="http://www.people.memphis.edu/~ecmills/snorkel/index.html">snorkel</a> (duplicolor spray-on) because even after I clean the truck off... it's still nasty looking.</font>
