Bedlining My Interior

I've given it quite a bit of consideration over the past few months, and have about 98% decided to line the inside of my TJ with some type of bedliner. My question is:
Does anyone have any good/bad experiences they could share with me about this, and what is the best kind for as low a price as possible? I'm not looking to spend $500, because I'm still in highschool, something like <$200 would be more along the lines I'm looking at. I want something durable and that looks good. Just let me know, thanks in advance!

Here is a thread I started way back when I did mine! $100 for the kit to do it yourself. You will need to buy a couple of other things in order to prep your tub, but maybe another $20. Keep your eyes open in the PepBoys ad for the Herculiner kit. I have seen it on sale for $70 after the $30 mail in rebate. Plus you can get a coupon for $5 off a $20 or $30 purchase when you join their email list or something like that.

I sprayed mine on. It's definitely worth the effort. I'd have to say there is a small increase in noise after removing the carpet, if you are concerned about that. Prep is key. Take your time with that and it should turn out fine.

Durabak

Another Durabak DIY job. Two days work, well under $200, plus you have some color choice. I rolled/brushed it on, two coats.

Thanks for all the tips guys! But I have a few more questions:
What are the issues with holes? Like the ones for my console, seats, etc. And how can I avoid those issues? How far up under the dash did you guys go? What are some of the difficulties of rolling? Is it hard to get an even coat in vertical or angled places, or is the stuff thick enough to stay where you roll it?

That's all I can think of now. I'll let you know if I have any more, and sorry for so many, I just don't wanna screw it up!! Thanks guys! keep the comments/tips/advice coming!!

Stuff is goo like, don't worry about dripping unless you put too much. As for holes put roll of masking tape inside them, then take them out before bedliner dries.

Indeed, Keep the bedliner away from your hootus.

If the need for the hootus arises, ask a significant other, or really good friend for help. DO NOT ask any of the neighborhood Children for help. This will lead to problems far greater than a bedliner'd hootus.
