My gf's uncle has an old F100 that's been completely painted with Line-X. I'll try and get a picture of it sometime. It doesn't look too bad.

Its gonna be kinda costly but it would be about the same as a good paint job

Over on TRS there is also a guy who did his B2 trail rig in a flat green line x, looks awesome, and will last forever.

herculiner isn't going to be anywhere as strong as line-x, you'll still mess it up if you really scrape something

line-x would look a lot better than herculiner. Obv you can do a full vehicle with herc for like 200$ but it gets nasty dirty easily (and i have a hard time just cleaning it) and looks a bit funny while it ages.


Just sayin, if i were to go full truck i'd go line-x. More longevity.

Just look on ebay for U-POL Raptor, seems to be pretty good stuff. A guy on RPS did his bed in it and it looked just like line-x or rhino.

Plus it comes with everything u need. Stil gonne be a couple of hundred though. U can even get it to where u can add paint to it for color. Also, follow Korey's how-to on prep and u shoukld be good to go

ya im not too worried about the longevity of it, its going on a trail rig. its going to get scratched and peeled off. like i said, itll be easy to touch up. herculiner is the easiest stuff to clean, i have it on my lower body line down. if i do do this, its going to be herculiner, or that raptor liner. and thanks for the pics! finally someone posted what i had asked for

Another option.

Armacoatings 1-800-524-ARMA spray-on bedliners

The local shop has a piece of foam coated in the stuff and it's not cracked and many people have stepped on it. They also have 1/8 or 1/4 pieces of the stuff and it can be folded in half w/o cracking. Seems like pretty potent stuff. This stuff is said to be the parent product of where Line-X came from. But also as expensive or not slightly more than Line-X. If I knew about them when I bought my truck it would have Arma-Coating instead of Line-X.
