I have heard stay away from the cheap versions.
I heard Herculiner is good;
I built my own steel hard top and used Herculiner on it--
I'm impressed, the stuff was easy to apply, and it is very tough.
Follow the directions; definitely get the xylol for cleanup (per directions).
I will use it again--got some floorboards, etc to do.

Don't start the revolution without me...

I'm using herculiner either this weekend or next depending on time.

What I do know is that a spayed on application of bedliners is far superior in quality than just rolling it on.

Here's a great write-up.

I applied black Herculiner to my tub a few months ago and love it. The prep work was a royal PITA (mainly because I'm too anal), but I'm glad I spent the time grinding all of that rust and treating it all with Navel Jelly now. Some of the guys I work with have Rhinoliner in the beds of their trucks, but I actually prefer Herculiner because of the semi-gloss black finish, versus the flat gray finish of their Rhinolinings. Unfortunately, it does get pretty dulled where you're feet are with time, but I've found that semi-gloss black Rustoleum is practically a dead-ringer, so I bet it could always be touched up if you really cared about that sort of thing.

I rolled the cheapo Rustoleum bedliner stuff on the floors of my XJ. It's been abused for about 6 months now and holding up great for $20/kit.

Good prep work is a must though, get rid of all the rust and clean it with Xylene.

The PO of my CJ7 did a roll on bed liner. It's ok, but I spilt brake fluid on part of it and it sat there for a day. The bed liner started to peel after that. I dunno what brand it was, but I didn't like the idea that it wouldn't hold up to brake fluid.

Ollie's Bargain Outlet and last I knew every store in this area was out of it. There are other places but it might be $24/kit. I'll have to look at the boxes for the name of the kit and look it up on Google. I know there's an online dealer.

Did mine with herculiner a couple of weeks back.
Prep is key, but I rolled it and painted it on, it is looking good

The kit I used came from Autozone because they had a $20 rebate deal going on which brought the total to $80, and that included a 4" roller. I wound up buying a better roller because that one was a POS, but I rolled two full coats on thick, covering all the way up under the dash as high as I could get and up the sides of the interior to the underside of the top lip, and still had about 1/5 of the gallon left over. There are a few drips if you look close, but overall it's pretty uniform.

I too Herc-ed my CJ and as the others have said it is all in the prep. As for the question on the xylene, it is a MUST have to cut the bonding agents. I bought a gallon and have over half of it left. wipe down the area you are going to line at least 3 times with a new rag each time.

I found that the Herc is not as durable as the commercial line-x in my P/U but for a jeep it is just fine, I dont plan on hauling rocks and gravel in the Jeep bed.

I rolled my liner on with a brush for the corners. I even did a "over the rail" liner to protect the tub where the hard top sits. I used the plastic masking tape for stucco to mask ofF the area and it worked great. DONT USE PAPER TAPE TO MASK THE EDGE, it will have to be cut out to remove it the chemicles in the liner seap through it real fast.
