I would seriously recommend biting the bullet and having it sprayed professionally. The quality is all about surface prep and you'll get some sort of warranty (most likely lifetime if you go with Line-X, Rhino or Ultimate X-treme). I'd guess you'll spend at least $150-200 (minus elbow grease and frustration!) to DIY and for about $275-$350 (depending upon where you go) will get you the real deal. In the end it's your choice but chances are you'll be disappointed if you use your truck bed for any kind of work IMHO.

Ya i have to agree! i think it would be more cost effective to have it professionally done! i know the do it yourself stuff can get pretty pricey when it comes to getting alot, especially for your own box! the quality probably won't be as good! the pros are set up right to do it so it will be alot more cost effective, and won't be so labor intensive!!

If your still set on doing it yourself your best bet is to head to your local parts store and take a look most of them should state how much is need for certain areas!! then go from there

Quality is not only about surface prep, but about the product itself. There's quality and junk out there just like most other things.

I have the Line-X spray in, for me its perfect, as all i have in the bed is 2 very large tool boxes, they are bolted through the bed & will not be coming out as long as i own it.

You can get the spray in liner & you will be happy with it
OR
you can get what i would have purchased if i actually used the bed, it will take a beating, most oils & most acids won't hurt it, you can wash it out, you can remove it, yet its padded & comfortable to sit on, & nothing will slide around on it
http://www.bed-rug.com/ & you don't have to sand the paint off the bed to apply it

Bedrug is a good product for what it is. It's good for light to moderate duty. Most things will wash out except the knap can still stain. Leaves, twigs, and that sort of junk does not wash out. With heavy use, the knap will tear. It's best to use a tonneau cover with a Bedrug or the Bedrug will tend to sag after a while.
