Not sure why everyone knocks Herculiner so badly. I lined my TJ with it and never have any issues with how it served the purpose it was designed for. I was happy enough with it that I didn't hesitate using it again for lining the inside of my M416. I also used the Spray can version for the areas that couldn't be reached with a roller or brush.

Just my personal opinion. But still a good find on new alternatives...:beer:

I think that a lot of people don't like how textured it is. I know that as far as durability, price, and performance though Herculiner is very nice. I can say though that out of all the DIY kits I like the Rustoleum bedliners texture the best.

in my 94 i had the herc, with no issues, I have the rustoleum in my 01 right now with no issues, but I saw the durabak and sent away for the sample chips and the colors are great, they pretty much match close to some standard jeep colors, I wasnt knocking the herc. just simply saying for color options this is out there, the blue pretty much matches my jeep floor now on my 2010 so i figured if it did ever chip or anything... blue on blue wont look bad with wear.

Just another option is "U-POL Raptor BLACK Truck Bed Liner Coating Kit". By it at a paint shop; comes with the liquid and spray gun. All you need to do is the prep and have an air compressor. I bought my kit for $140 and did an old YJ. It can be mixed to color match.

heres a few more after I put the husky liners and seats back in it this morning. This stuff is thick and tough!! I have a custom boat that I had rhino spray for me, this is as close as it gets!! If you call them with a paint code they will match the stuff the best they can for you. Just for anyone wanting to know, I skuff sanded everything with 100 grit then a scrubby pad, washed with lemon joy and let sun dry then I used the uv non fade for $119 a gal, 1 gal came in 4 1qt cans once you open them thats it, no reuse! and the 1 gallon did 3 layers in the 4 door jk. on the page you can request sample chips so you can see the colors. http://www.nonslipcoating.com/

durabak will take a straight up ass whoopin and hold tuff there are several coast guard buoy tenders that use it on the buoy deck with thousands of pounds of shit slamming into it and it usually does not chip. That stuff is on my short list of things to do after I get my boat to use it instead of the crappy two part paint we are using now.

is this stuff rubbery or hard plastic like?? Looks good!! also did you role it???
Its not rubbery you cant pick at it, you can just tell its never goin anywhere thats for sure!, all I can say is its like linex with the look of rhino, I rolled it, they give you special rollers with it when you buy it.
