Is spraycan bedliner REALLY bedliner?

I wanted to spray a few areas of my new JKU with bedliner this weekend, but then stopped and thought about it for a second. Bedliner, the real deal, is two chemicals reacting and forming the rock hard surface we have come to know. They solidify pretty quickly. So I am wondering, the bedliners in a can, are they just textured spray paint, or are they actually real bedliner? If not, do they make DIY bedliner kits with the part A and part B?

Raptor liner is a mix yourself that is a spray on application. Monstaliner is a roll on, but might be able to be sprayed (there is a big thread on Monstaliner just search it)

As to the cheaper spray can stuff I don't have an answer.

It's textured spray paint and it's worth less than what you pay for it.

I'd compare it to 89 cent ratel can paint at Walmart. It peels off in no time. Get the good stuff and save your self some trouble

Thank you. Nice to hear an honest answer. A bunch of people were telling me it's "tough" but I just cant see how that can be.

I guess the roll on stuff would be ok to protect against water/road salt in the sensitive areas.

I've used the aerosol bedliner on my jeeps grill, and on the tailgate of my old wood truck. I cant really say how much of a beating the front grill has taken on my TJ, but my truck gets beat to hell! I throw wood, scrap metal, cinder blocks... Etc and it's been tough as nails! No scratches, no chips, no flakes. As good as the "real" stuff.

On a JKU I would spend the extra $$$ on Raptor liner. Yes its a 2-part that you mix. You can vary the roughness by changing the air pressure in the paint gun.

I used it in the wheel wells of my old Dakota. I had to re-spray areas every month or so from peeling and flaking. I wouldn't use it on anything I wanted to look good or last.

Your top two diy choices are raptor and monster. I sprayed raptor and loved the results. Just search for the two. A lot of good info

I used the spray on bedliner on some parts of my motorcycle. I liked the texture more than anything but once it cure I realized it is pretty tough. I can't answer for heavy abuse but I have dropped stuff on the bedliner parts and no scratches, nicks, or flaking. I takes a while to fully cure but I am happy with it. I plan on hitting a few parts on my jeep when the weather warms.
