A NICE Do-It-Yourself spray-in bedliner

seen this on another forum. Ive never heard of the brand, but it looks awesome! You can even get it in clear so you can add a base coat in to match your paint (this is not in my truck, i have line-x)


you can buy some here:

U-Pol Raptor Truck Black Bed Liner Kit #ME-820: eBay Motors (item 350353776427 end time Sep-10-10 0845 PDT)

The stuff looks awesome, and I'm sure if you follow our how to on surface prepping the bed and tape everything off, you will have one nice *** bed.

I asked the guy for some macro shots of the finish, stuff looks legit

No this isn't mine, I hve the professional stuff, however don't know which I have, I'm thinking Line-X from the quality.

That is a guy on RPS, I'm amazed at the finish and u don't have to roll the crap in. Looks professional as hell. I think this would be the best route to go instead of roll in stuff which costs about the same

On a budget this looks great. But i still like the Line-x due to the warranties.

Every bedliner can be sprayed bro. The sprayer costs 13$ at home depot. So you can do this for 65$ if you get herculiner on sale which is hella easy.

And PS: every bedliner looks really nice when sprayed.

Sorry thats just a stock photo i found for sprayed herculiner. My herculiner is holding up great and it doesnt really chip(i dont think any do cause they're like rubber). Anways, i still need to paint my bed, i have my rocker panels herculiner and i like it. Protects the bottom quarter of truck from my 35s tossin rocks.

I did one of my previous Rangers with Herculiner, I like it.


After one year of heavy use, it held up well.


I've done 4 trucks with it, good stuff.

I plan to use UPol's Gravitex on the inside of my stepside fenders, and the inner fender well areas. i have used it at work and it's a nice product. figure it will clean up all the fiberglass work i've done.

Out of every 100 people that roll on their bedliner, maybe one sprays it on.
Just get an undercoat spray gun with

(Spray gun must have 1/4" nozzle opening for effective spraying and to avoid clogging from the rubber granules)

Spraying is the best way to go. An undercoating gun (aka Schultz gun) is the best way to do it. It is very easy to do as long as you have some 80 grit paper, some masking supplies and a compressor. It will come out much more uniform in appearance and just all around be a more professional looking job.

U-Pol makes a decent product and so does Morton. Both of them cost around $125 for a kit IIRC. My buddy has the Morton one in his El Camino. Its a catalyzed one and its holding up great.

This stuff rocks, doesnt fade, really holds up better then any DIY liner i've seen. I just finished doing my Wrangler with it. Its all about prep. This is hands down the best DIY liner for $100 with all the supplies and gun. Cant beat it.
