DIY bed liners

So I am going to take my carpets out of my XJ here soon. Then I would like to in install some type of roll on bed liner. I have seen some posts on here and other forums that mostly use Herculiner. What is the difference between all the other brands?

Some different ones I have found Magnaliner, Plasti-kote, U-Pol Raptor Bed Liner, Dupli-Color, Grizzly Grip and Herculiner.
With so many different types out there, which one should I go!

Pictures would also help!

Never used any of them but according to all the other threads herculiner seems to be the most popular by far.

There is a guy in Santee that does an offbrand version of Rhinoliner pretty cheap. I only have his email avail right now so I'll PM it to you.

if you DD i wouldnt keep the carpet out. the floor generates a lot of heat inside the cab without the carpet as insolation.

Completely stock, and keeping it that way...

i have used durabak and like it, you can get it smooth or textured, and in many colors, and with or without uv protectant. i suggest smooth as the textured is hard to clean, and since it will be on the inside of your xj their is no need for the uv protectant. a gallon should give you well over 4 coats, maybe 5. i did the outside of my cj with one gallon did 3 coats and i still had extra. i would suggest ordering a quart from them.

I have heard a lot about durabak and herculiner in other forums. I guess is mostly personally option they all do the same thing.
So from my conclusion nobody really has any problem with any of them, it all comes down to the prep work.
