You can't order off the website, but thier number is at the bottom. I just called them and ordered it when I got mine. Black was like $99 per gallon, and colors were $119 per gallon. Of course that was about 4 years ago, so prices may be different now.
I was pretty happy with it. It did start to peel on the floorboards a little, but I kind of expected it. I was runnin' out, so it was a little thin in those spots, and it was applied to brand new smooth steel. Just put it on thick and don't skimp on the prep work. I rolled mine on, and it was a little abrasive, but it didn't bother me any. I've seen it sprayed before, and it ends up a little smoother on the surface.
A friend got a price to Rhino-line the inside of a bare bronco tub and they wanted $800. Probably a lot cheaper to do just a truck bed, but still alot more expensive than doin' it yourself.

Don't use durabak. I had it on my Cj-5. It sucked. Started coming of the floorboard of my truck about a month after I first laid it down, and it's TOO abrasive - it skins you pretty much on contact.

Don't even think about duplicolor, either. The roll on stuff is pretty much like a black paint with sand in it. The aresol spray-in stuff, however, is pretty good.

IMHO, the best do-it-yourself stuff out there is HERCULINER. Anyone that tells you it's the same as durabak just doesn't know what they're talking about. I've installed durabak in my old CJ, duplicolor roll on in my friend K5, and spray on duplicolor my Yotas winch bumper. Two friend have herculiner in their sammys, so I've seen and used them all.

Go with Herculiner. It's thicker, harder (but not nearly as abrasive) and just plain better than the others. The closest thing I can compare it to is Line-X. It's not quite that thick, but you don't pay $$$ for a spray-in, either.

Also, do this on a weekend where you have the time to let it dry. I'd suggest at least 36-48 hours before putting the seats back in, and at least 4 days before really beating on it. This is for all the DIY liners - they take about a week to reach full hardness. Before that it doesn't take much to scrub them off.</font>

I should just put it this way... I've seen and installed ALL the do-it-yourself liners... I've used 3 of them personally. Durabak for over 6 months.

And I have a kit from herculiner sitting in my closet waiting for this weekend.</font>

Some bed liner places will go cheaper on the price if u prep it urself..... prepping is the hardest part and TIME consuming.

The DIY liner for me is Line-X - Im gonna spray the interior in my toy in the next month or so- I already did my turbo car
