Hey guys, I'm wanting to put a bed liner in my pickup so the scratches that are in there don't rust.

I'm on a tight budget and $400 for a Linex is just a little high, so I was wondering if any of you have tried the do it yourself roll on liners? It's super cheap compared to the spray on ones, but I haven't hear good stuff about it from the few people I have talked to. Just wanted to get some more input.

i have rhino lining in my 03 z71 and love it. it's is tough as nails, doesn't slip, and looks really good. i think it was $365 installed so it sounds cheaper than the linex stuff you're talking about. i would definitely consider it. if you can't swing that fee, maybe call them and see if they can work something out with you. or save up the money to have it done when you can. i definitely wouldn't waste my money or time on any of the self applied types. just my .02 though...

If you decide to use a do-it-yourself bedliner it will last a lot longer if you put some extra effort into surface prep. Make sure to go over every inch of surface to be covered with steel wool or scotch-brite, then wash and dry it. If you only work on the surface for an hour or so then slap the stuff on, it probably won't last very long.

I put a Herculiner on my brother-in-law's truck about three year's ago, and it still looks pretty good. Overall it's not as tough as a commercial bedliner, but it's a fourth the price.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info guys. I know the sprayed in one's are probably the best bet as far as durablity goes, because my dad has the linex in his 01 Sierra. The stuff is amazing. It's like shrp said though, I don't know if I can swing at that price. When I see numbers like that, I see a new shotgun or something. Can you tell I'm young? :mrgreen:

I might check into the Rhino linings, I've heard from other people that they are cheaper also. I think there is a dealer and installer right up the street from me, so it would be easy to look into.

Thanks again for the replies.

Hey bgold, how long has yours been in and how does it look?
