I don't know which of us are herculined and who are line-x'd but if you have the money go with line-x. Just cause sometimes it's annoying cleaning the herculiner. But it also costs 59$ for herculiner, 15$ for supplies, and you end up with a sweet lookin truck. Mines chillin on the roadside lookin good right now actually. I need to add another layer of herculiner cause I kind of did it quickly the first time.

The only one posted in this thread with actual spray-on bedliner(line-x) is the white '08 of 08xlt4x4's. Everybody else did the do-it-yourself stuff.

I'd get it professionally done. Looks better in my opinion. Herculiner is much cheaper though.

X2 duplicolor is no good, you might as well paint the bottom half it would be the same as using the duplicolor. Hurculiner isn't bad it looks good for a month or so (shinny looking) and then it fades to a dull black but still a lot of texture (atleast mine did). I think the green/black combo looks good I get a lot of compliments, I just can't get a good picture of it everytime I try. Just my $ .02

Duplicolor is thin as ****. I get tons of bedliner through my job for free and have dabbled with all of them. The line-x is obv the best option but if you think about it the herculiner bedliner honestly costs ya 40$ cause you don't use nearly a gallon to line your truck.

Duplicolor has it's place folks..... Like on exterior plastics. And honestly, it was thick as **** on my bumper as evidenced by the hammer blow I gave it and created a chip. It's no roll-on Herculiner by any means, but it's has it's purpose and it's not on full rocker panels IMO. Bumpers, flares, valences, bedrails, etc....Dupli-color in the rattle can works great(PREP PREP PREP PREP!) It is VERY easy to wash. Roll-on herc crap is VERY grabby and that washmit would be toast and your rockers would have a hint of blue or orange or yellow within the first wash. Grabbier than real spray-on.

i recently thought about doing this.

The only reason i wanted to do this was so i could bedline the edge of my doors (where you put the rubber bump guards on) This summer was crazy hot and the glue holding my bump guards would get hot. I would go to grab the door in that spot, and they would slip off and get hot, black goo all over my hand.

So i figured that i could bedline the bottom then go up the side of the doors.

I did, if you didnt technically it would look a lil bad with the doors open. Oh nevermind I see what you mean. No I didnt, for whatever reason, but you could and it would be easy. I didnt want to affect the door shutting though.

Ok, now I have some respect for him. I'd never have the ***** to put one of those on as I figure some political wacko would key the crap out of my truck while its in a parking lot.
