$900 seems a bit steep, I just had my bed done by Line X for $685.00.

It depends what you want really, I plan on doing every single thing to my truck myself, I mean 80$ vs $900...If you dont like the $80 option, oh well... use aircraft paint stipper and itll come off. it is almost not worth it to try it in my opinion

I have been eye balling the raptor diy kits. Its $100 and gets good reviews on the jeep sites. I understand the kit should get you at least 3 coats on the floor.

Personally I would not recommend the Roll on stuff to anyone.

I did it to my previous truck because I didnt want to spend the money on a Rhino (the thing at the time.) It is good for keeping small stuff from moving around in the truck bed, but it fades pretty bad and doesnt hold up to tough use. That is if you go with what the kit recommends.

I was talking to a local guy who used to do spray in liners and said they would use 5 gallons for a truck bed. Those DIY kits are ~$80 for 1 gallon. So if you're going to try to make the DIY compairable to the professional ones you're looking at $400 in DIY cost vs $550 locally for line x with a lifetime warranty and its a much better product. For me I will never do it again, it was a fun little project but in the long run you will be better off going with a line x or the equivalent.

About those 1 gallon DIY kits that are about $80: You don't really get one gallon, you get about 1/2 to 2/3 of a gallon because they contain about 1/3 to 1/2 solvents by volume that evaporate away. Super rip-off!

LINE-X does not contain any solvents.

Any coating will fade over time, some worse than others

I can't see $800 being reasonable, unless they are shooting colors

Personally, for removable parts like bumpers, i would get them Powder Coated
smoother finish, any color or even metal flaked
like my Harley gas tanks

Here is a few pics of the Herculiner bed liner I did over the weekend. Its the second time I've done this to a truck, I did it a while back to my Dakota and it held up pretty well I've used it to haul everything from rocks, wood, animal carcasses, and motor blocks and it held up just as well as my brothers Line-X liner. And as for cleaning I just use a standard bristle car brush from Wal-mart and whatever carwash soap I have handy.
