Has anyone had experience with stripping bedliner? The previous owner coated the whole body with it and it was cool for a while but I am growing tired of it. It's hard to clean and I think a normal paint job would look much nicer.
How hard is it to strip it off?
It depends on what type was put on..rhino liner and Line-X will be a real PITA to strip..as far as any of the DIY liners...Aircraft Paint stripper can do it with a fair amount of work.

Well if it wasn't done well it may come off (peel off) fairly easy??? But I think you are in for a lot of work either way...

I have a spray on bedliner on my floor plans looks like rustoleum truckbed liner. I want to redo it with a real truck bed liner like monsta or raptor linings. Im thinking i could sand it off like any other paint. Would that work?
It's quite possible that neither soda blasting nor glass bead will work. If the bedliner material is fairly soft, the media tends to bounce right off and you will not get desired results. If the bedliner material is hard and VERY thin, then a media blast will work. If the bedliner material is hard and thick, then a media blast takes too long and it won't be cost effective.
You can try a high pressure washer (5,000 psi) and see what happens.
If you're lucky, the owner didn't prep the surface correctly and the bedliner will peel right off, like this:
