Well, I have wanted to get rid of my drop in bed lioner for quite some time. I admit the drop in liner was the very first addition to my new truck but I've grown tired of it rattling and making it difficult to secure cargo in the bed. I was going to spend the money for a Line-X spray in liner but I felt like I would be giving the money away since I could do it myself and save $400-$500. I did a fair amount of research and also read the 4Whwwloffroad issue that tested all of the bedliners (including ballistics testing!) and decided that I would try the Herculiner. I gave away my drop in liner and bought the gallon of Herculiner from Kragens for $89.00. Beause I do a lot of wheeling and have had the truck in the mud and at Pismo at least 10 times there was a ton of mud and sand under the drop in liner. The drop in liner also took the bed down to bare metal in several places. I spent approximately six hours prepping the bed including cleaning, sanding, cleaning, cleaning,masking, and cleaning. The application process was very easy and went without problems. Afetr approx. 1 1/2 hours I applied my second coat. I was very satisfied with the results. The second coat was very tacky when my bed mount toolbox fell on it and did no damage. My application was considerably thinner then what a spray on liner would be but that was by my choice. Several people saw the Herculiner at Frank Raines and thought it looked pretty good (but they could have been lying). There is moderate gloss to the final application but that should fade in the sun in a short amount of rime. All in all, it was good money spent. With the extra money i saved from not buying the spray in liner I bought the toolbox for the bed and a front Detroit locker.
