1 gal of Herculiner,...3-4 coats,...and you'll have some left over.

Tips:...
buy rubber gloves,
try to use only the roller,
first coat will look like crap,
use 120 grit sandpaper,
clean surface after sanding with alcohol,
plan this taking 2-3 days,
very important to stir every 60 seconds
between coats, store roller in zip-lock bag

whoops,...good catch,.....I don't know about the bed....my bed has Rhino lining in it.

Personally....I don't know how well it would hold up in the bed.

It will take 1gal for just the rockers.

It did the job just fine, Until i drug the post hole auger from my skid steer across it. That beat it up a bit. But for the normal user, I think it would be fine. If i did it over again I would do another coat, then I think it wouldve held up to what i was doing

hey toddy, i'm considering doing the same thing, i can get my hands on the bed-liner kit which includes basically everything i need for 65$, i figured that was a reasonable price considering i'm doing it my-self.

I did a 4" strip along the bottom of mine, plus the area below the bed in the back that shows when the tail gate is off, with 2 coats as direction instructed. Came out fine and I used a little over 1/2 the quart container they sell for touch up or extending the kit.
