    On my 84 crawler I painted on the rust-oleum Truck Bed Coating from the one gallon paint can. It was too rubbery and didn't harden up. Could take chunks off with your fingernail. Wouldn't recommend it.
    No experience with Herculiner.

    As someone who used to spray, I wouldn't recommend any of the DIY liner products. The material goes on so thin that by the time you've applied enough to get decent coverage you'll have as much invested in the DIY stuff as you would having a liner sprayed in. The DIY stuff has little or no UV resistance so if it's exposed to the sun it will look like charcoal in pretty short order. The DIY stuff also doesn't have anywhere near the tensile strength of polyurea so it's pretty easily chipped and scraped off. Just my opinion but I would shop around for a Bullet or Vortex dealer. They're usually less than LineX or Rhino and the material is basically the same.

    I've used the rust-oleum truck bed and it work just fine. It will require several coats. Depending on the usage of the bed it might need touch up areas after awhile.

    I would not recommend rust-oleum truck bed especially from the rattle can. I applies way to thin and requires a ton of coats. I used this on my sliders and front, engine and rear skids and require too much touch-up. I finally just took my sliders in to get coated and haven't regretted it. If you actually use your bed and haul quite a bit I would just cry once and get it coated.

    I appreciate everyone's reply. I think I am going to try the "Linerxtreeme spray on Bedliner Kit 3 gallon Black with GUN" kit.

    Or for that price... I called around and found a shop that would do it for $340. I will likely just have the shop do it, so I know it is done right the first time.
