That's what I used, seems to hold up well, and has a nice texture not too rough.

Check out my thread for pics.

buy the upol kit, i got mine of ebay 99 bucks, you will be alot happier with that kit than a rattle can. The kit I got was tintable with automotive paint. My 94 country was white with gold trim. I bought bumpers and flares off of a 2000 to replace mine. I tinted the upol kit with od green and sprayed the bumpers, flares and the bottom of the doors. Looks killer.

Its going to matter more on how much/ how well you prep. You could buy the most expensive stuff out there, but if you cut corners on the prep, it'll turn out like crap. Save some money, really concentrate on your prep work, and it'll not only turn out good, it will last a long time. Good luck. And dont forget to show us how it turns out.

Yes it's all about prep work. The rattle can bedliner is decent, but I.M.O. it doesn't have enough texture. I know a lot of people that were extremely satisfied with the u-pol kit, and if you thin about it, it's a good deal, you get enough bedliner for about 1.5 truck beds and the gun to spray it with for just under $100. The rattle can will work if you prep right, but if you're looking for more texture, go with the roll-on herculiner or spray-on u-pol kit.

That's why I like it it has a more sand texture, and cost me 25 bucks to do it.... And if it ever fails east to fix.

Its good. After about 5 coats and a good curring, its really strong and flexible.

thanks for the replies guys..i would really like to get the raptor kit but i could really use that money on other areas of my jeep...i like the textured look but only when its uniform...i dont like the random size particles on hurculiner..or most roll on kits..i am leaning towards spray on but just dont know which one to get and not break the bank..but still get a quality product..the other problem i have with the raptor kit is its way more then i need..i would use a fraction of it to do the rockers and have enough left to do a truck but...but nothing to use it on

I used the Duplicolor rattle can bedliner on my Comanche. I couldn't justify paying $400 for a Line-X job at this time. So far, it's held up really well. I washed and sanded the entire bed before spraying it on. It's really easy to touchup any scratches. I'm pretty happy with the results, especially since it only cost $15 for two cans.
