It will not last. Don't waste your time.
Go to an authorized place for spayin liners - one that carries a lifetime warranty like the one i got from LineX.
I have a friend in the body shop business and he started learning to install these himself. He went by the book and bought what he thought was quality material which still cost him 125 bucks per truck bed. He did his truck, his sons truck and his son-in-law and all three have started peeling up after 1 year. Waste of time to save a few bucks.

I thought about doing one myself, but I figure i'd just let someone else do it. If you don't sand it right, or do but don't get certain spots good enough it may peel up. I mean it's gotta be perfect. DIY = no warranty.......i'd rather have a warranty on someone else's dime.

The drop ins hold moisture under them. First they rub through the paint then hold water then you have rust without even knowing it untill theres a hole.
The lineX i got was a dealer install as part of the deal when i bought the truck so i have no idea how much it was. Funny thing is, i told them "LineX" is what i wanted. They used some other second hand spray in company and upon delivery, i told them i knew that wasn't a lineX and he said, "oh, i forgot you wanted LinX and I got this other brand instead". He told me if I had any problem with it to bring it back and he would pay to have it removed and have LinX installed.
A month later, I was loading a 12" auger in the truck and I tossed it in the bed and ripped up a big ol sheet of liner. The paint under it was still all shiny and glossy and had NOT been sanded at all. Needless to say, the dealer got another visit from me and I got my lineX.
So they paid double what it would have cost them.

we have used line-x, rhino and a couple others to coat the fans on our street sweepers to make them last longer and the line-x will outlast the others by about a year. typicly we have to replace the fans once a year with no coating, 2 yrs with the "other" linings and 3-3 1/2 years with line-x. needless to say it's good stuff

You have to mke sure the bed is properly prepped before the liner is sprayed in, or it will also hold moisture underneath and rot the bed out. Personally I don't like liners, I paint the inside of my bed about once a year. It doesn't take long, and it's cheap (I usually use less than a pint).
