Pics Of Herculiner, After A Couple Years Of Use.

Hey guys, i am now leaning toward herculining my tub. but before i make a decision, i would like to see it after a couple years of actual use, not when its brand new. i have read some post about them fading because the Herc doesn't have UV protection, but some of the other DIY liners do have UV protection. i also saw on Herc's website, they now sell UV coating to aply over the Herculiner

the pics can be from the other DIY liners too, doesn't have to be just Herculiner. i am thinking black, but i would like to see gray too.

thanks guys!

at about 1 year of use here, still holding strong.


Workin on almost 2 years now, no peeling, no issues. Only place it has come up is on the footman loops in the bed, because stuff always slides across them.

and if it only lasts 2 years does it really matter? At the price difference between it and Rhinoliner you could redo it like 5 times and still save money.

I had a Scrambler with Herculiner in the bed and it faded quite a bit after a few years. I was also disappointed in how rough the texture was in it. Nothing slid around but it was very tough on knuckles if you slipped or scraped it. It would bring blood almost every time.

Yea I definitely want to do that stuff now. It looks like it really holds up great inside. That top in the sun for so long, not as well. Perfect for the inside of a Jeep. I can't wait to get some.

after doing alot of reading and comparing. i am going with the Durabak lining. from what i understand, it has a more rubbery feel than the Herculiner. it still holds up very well from the pics i have seen. any one have any pics of the Durabak?
