    I was always told you get what you pay for. I wont hold up as long as a professional coating such as Line-X or Rhino Line. Also it depends what will you be hauling and how much wear it might see. One problem I have heard is not sanding the bed enough, and cleaning it thoroughly, and with that the coating wont cling to the bed enough and peal off

    That was what I had feared about that stuff. So I better save up for the spray on. I have hauled a ton of sand, rocks, but not often but happens.

    You won't be happy with it. I have the GatorHyde spray-in bed liner that runs about $400 or so. Looks sharp and well worth the money. I haven't seen a roll on liner that wasn't peeling...

    I did roll on to the interior of my Jeep Wrangler a few years back, I've never had an issue with fading, I did have an issue in the begining with peeling/chipping but that was my own fault as I got lazy doing the prep work and didnt clean a couple areas as good as I should have.
    The liner job has held up well over the years against mud and rocks on the front floors and the rear/bed still looks new when I wash it out, I normally carry chains, tow hooks, tools, and junk like that in the back so I'm real surprised it hasnt been scraped up.
    My opinion is it works well but you do need to follow the prep instructions closely to get a good job.
    Since doing my interior I've helped do a few truck beds and even the exterior of a friends flat bed and all have turned out real good.

    Since you have some experience with roll-on, I'm considering using Grizzly Grip on my trailer once I get it, as I know the powdercoat used on trailers is very prone to chipping/peeling. Thoughts?
