I would say its ****ing garabage product. Go with Durabak or Raptor liner. Those two are the best DIY liners out there.

Durabak and Herculiner are the same product with different labelling. I'm going to take a shot in the dark and say Raptor Liner is also.

All the DIY liners are the EXACT SAME THING. And yes, a 2gal kit will cover the lower panel of 2 rangers all the way around.

I had it on my car hauler and it faded and cracked. I used durabak on my friends dump trailer, used the raptor liner on my trailer. We lined both of his dump trucks with each one. Havent had a problem with either. They're all urathane products, imo the quality of the raptor and durabak is better.

I am not sure that the one gallon kit would be enough for two beds. I did it on a full-size short bed pickup I used to have and it took about all of the kit to get it done and the fumes were so bad that I had a headache that felt like my eyeballs were getting pushed out of my skull from the fumes! I did it outside with an industrial 36" fan blowing on me!
You might want to look at duplicolor's bed armor which does not have the fumes, that is what I plan to use and you can get it for around $80 from Jegs and a few other places. I have seen it done on shows such as Trucks! and Stacey David's Gears and it looks to be what I am looking for.

Good luck!

OP isn't talking about covering two beds. And honestly cans someone take a picture of cracked herculiner? I don't even know how this can exist since it never takes a form that is a dry solid(like a paint chip). But at the same time, I'm also in Alaska so mine never has to deal with the heat of Texas or whatever.

if possible i recommend you look very hard and see if you can see any paint through it. If so, do a 4th. Just because i did 2 layers(was in a rush) and it wasn't covered perfectly. I'm gonna put on another 2 layers in a month or so, will refreshen it up too
