Do not use the duplicolor its junk, I used it on my wrangler and it peeled. Use hereculiner, works real good, I have done the sides and the inside with it.

I used a quart for the sides with a brush, it was like ~30 bucks, the insde I used a gallon kit It was ~90 bucks, its a little more money and takes more time but it will last longer so why go cheap and have to do it twice. Also don't skip good prep or no matter what you get it won't hold up.

Yup, I really like the Duplicolor spray on bedliner, much better than Rustoleum.

I've done my rockers and front bumper and both have held up very well. Just make sure you prep it well. Tape off the doors and sand the paint so its not shiny anymore. I used sanding blocks for this and got lots of paint/clear off. Clean it well with a wet rag and spray on when dry. I did many thin coats and it ended up very durable. No issues with peeling unless I bend the sheetmetal pretty good or put a deep gouge in it, which is rare in those areas.

Herculiner stains and fades and for me it peeled the paint off of the primer.

ok, thanks guys, i used to the duplicolor spray on, sanded alot and changed up the grits beween 320 and 400. well i sprayed on 4 coats, and i think i got a little too anxious to see the finished product and peeled my tape off to fast and a few edges peeled.....if i would have let it dry longer then pulled off my tape i think it would have did better.

so i think ill re tape on wed. and respray all the edges and let it dry for a little while before i remove the tape....but overall im very happy with the outcome of it. And i really like the look of the duplicolor cause its more like a rough sand paper instead of big chucks of stuff

ok, so i couldnt wait so i went ahead and got another can of the duplicolor, took a lot longer on my tap to make make sure it was straight and even, resprayed the liner along the edges and another coat in the middle.....let it dry for a longer period of time before touching the tap.
it did the trick, got a nice straight edge and it didnt peel up...looks GREAT, very happy with how it came out
