bedliner is more durable. Herculiner is a bit messy but worth it. Don't use rattle can it is a joke. Undercoating never fully cures stays rubber-like and dents and rubs easily.

^^ what he said.. Undercoating would not be desirable. It is mostly bitumens in there (why it smells like a fresh paved road) with the sun beating down on it it will stay rather melted and make a mess of everything. You'd never be able to wear white and you would probably be tracking that stuff everywhere you walked. Upol Raptor is a good DIY bedliner system, although I'd recommend sprayed on rather than rolled

Upol raptor is the way to go, I just finished mine. Easy to spray, and comes with the gun you need. All you need is a compressor.

I started to use undercoating on mine and let it "dry" for a couple days. Like everyone said, it doesn't fully dry. Needless to say I ended up scraping it up....what a pain.

On another note, it worked well to cover up the rust of the skid plate visible from behind the YJ.
