    Default Do it yourself Bed liner

    Hello all ,

    Any experience with installing do it yourself bedliners ? I was looking at some on the net and it doesn't seem that difficult. Or should I just go pay to have it done. I don't do a lot of hauling so it mainly just for aftermarket and light carry's.

    Thanks.

    Also any one in the San Antonio Texas area that knows an installer for liners?

    You have an air compressor? If so its very easy I've done alot of spray ins. My absolute favorite brand is Raptor Liner by UPOL... You can get it from most paint supply stores or most Napas as a complete kit. I have sprayed alot of different brands, and the easiest and best looking I've used is this kit by far. Prep the bed, mask off really good, def plastic the whole truck and take off your shoes, start at the front and do the front and sides, and work your way back on the floor. 1 kit (4 liters) is enough to do a long bed truck with 2 coats. Any more info PM me

    Herculiner is awesome stuff... You can either roll it on or I've seen people get good results from spraying it on with one of those cheap sand blasting guns. Very durable and looks great.

    herculiner is great. the rubber pieces make everything stay in place. easy to install just make sure to scuff bed so all shiny areas are gone, clean well,tape off areas you dont want it take off shoes and start rollin. give second coat and youve got a nice, affordableand durable bed liner. i believe you can even get it three diff colors. red,blackand gray. ive had mine for 2 years and only have had the size of a quarter come off but i missed it scuffing it because it was still shiny. i throw quite a bit in the bed without care and it stiil holds up.

    I'll be a buzz-kill and say that my last pickup came with just a 3/8 thick rubber mat. I think it was Rubbermade, and it worked great. Nothing slipped around, heavy enough that it wouldn't blow around, and it was easy to pull out and wash the box.

    I don't know what the bed liners cost, but I've seen LB mats at TSC for $60.

    Good luck,
