After looking into the cost of all of the materials, and time I figured i would only save $100 (I was going to use Al's). So for me, it wasn't worth the risk. I had the Rhino, I am very pleased with the quality.

It would be better to go with the spray on if you have the money. I didn't and went with herculiner for 80 bucks for the whole kit. I don't know how the poster above only found it to be 100 difference. It was quit a bit more exspensive to have someone spray my truck.

I figuered I needed 2 gallons of Al's ($99.99 each) plus, I don't own the special spray gun ($55.99), plus shipping and you're close to $300.00. Not counting all of the time.

The Rhino cost $400.00

Have it done. I did my bed with DIY stuff, and it's not even REMOTELY COMPARABLE to having it professionally done.

Yea, no comparison, they are two completely different materials. ALL the DIY stuff, as far as I know, are Moisture Cured Urethane. The Pros all use Poly Urea and it's not cheap.

The crap in a spray can it Totally useless, if you're going to do it yourself use something that costs at least $100 to do and make sure you spend the time it takes to do a proper prep job

When I do my bed I plan on using this.

Monstaliner do-it-yourself roll-on truck bed liner outperforms Herculiner Bed Liner, Duplicolor and Rustoleum Road Warrior

I actually ended up using Herculiner after Line-X told me I'd have to have my bed sandblasted (it was kinda rough...) before they'd do it.

Make sure you get enough, what they want to sell you for a 6ft bed, just isn't

There alot of DIY kits out there that compete against each other but it's like trying to pick a winner in the Special Olympics. I'm to have mine done right by the pros at Line-X. They can match my truck's color too.
