DIY Roll on Bed Liners- Which one?

There's no way I'm paying top dollar for a rhino spray in or another brand spray in.
What DIY roll in Bed liners have y'all used, and which one is the best? I've been thinking of the duplicolor kit at autozone, but figured I better ask the boys on the org first since I bet somebody has some experience with the kits that are out there.

So post up your recommendations and experiences with these DIY kits!

Not a direct answer to your question, but..

I understand that the cost of a sprayed in bedliner may be tough on the budget, but they are two completely different things. I used own a spray on bedliner business and actually did many of the applications for three years before moving to the industrial market. I've dealt with industrial coatings for over ten years. I'm not involved in the business now, so I don't have a vested interest any longer.

That being said, the spray applied systems will generally be applied anywhere to an eighth to a quarter of an inch thick. The roll-on systems can not come anywhere near this. Also the physical properties of the spray systems, due to their thickness ability, far surpass the roll-ons with regard to elongation, tensile strength and adhesion. These are all very important for overall lifetime performance.

So while I understand the cost issue, please do not expect the the same performance or look. My personal preference would be for the spray applied system.

I lined my rockers with Duplicolor's Bed Armor that has kevlar in it. i think the material is very good quality and the application with really easy. I have had the stuff on my truck for about two years now and none of it has chunked or pealed off.

Prep is gonna be the biggest thing no matter which brand u use.....the more time spent on prep, and the better u clean everything off will choose how long it last...I've seen those kits rub off with a broom, and then I've seen them with stand tons of weight and pressure....just take ur time of prep!!! I can't say it enough...lol

Your truck is too good looking for autozone junk. Even my buddies rhino lining was peeling. Line x is what I have on mine and you may pay more but between equipment buckets, pallets, and everything else that goes back there, mine still looks perfect. And like mentioned above, this stiff is Atleast an 1/8" thick at the very edge and then gets thicker. Save up your Chang for a few months and then buy ya a big name brand. Also some come with lifetime warranties. I got mine through the dealer and they used line x. Not sure about their warranty but the way it's looking I won't ever have to worry.
