Bedliner Showdown. Which one is best?


TL;DW, the Raptor made the list, but Herculiner beat it out. The best bedliner is Durabak.

Not tested: LineX and Monstaliner.

Cool. I remember watching the spray on bedliner a while back from him. IMO it's hard to go wrong with any of the top performers. Going cheap on bedliner is a huge mistake though because the budget ones just don't stand up to the sun and elements for long periods of time.

Here's one I've seen advertised which has both a thermal coating and sound coating - LizardSkin.

I have experience with Herculiner, Raptor and Monsta (although the Monsta is on an exterior and not on a floor / truck bed) Raptor is an over rated product in my opinion and every application I've seen it on it has cracked and peeled. The Herculiner I rolled into the tub of my Jeep 15 years ago is still in great shape other than directly under my right heel where it's worn through. The Monsta I sprayed on about 8 years ago still looks good, no cracking, peeling or fading.

I need to do the bed of my truck, but wasn't sure if Herculiner was any good. Now I know. Figured you guys might be interested as well.

honestly, I am impressed witht he durability and adhesion of Monsta. My daughter's jeep has been in Baker Grade heat and -16 below overnight and the Monsta is just as good as the day we installed it. My only gripe is that it holds dust very well. need to actually use a cleaner and a brush to get it back to black. The driver's footwell, which normally and naturally gets the most abuse without a rubber floor mat or carpet - is perfect on Alice.


We plan on using Monsta on my son's 93... just can't decide on a whole Monsta paint job or just the interior. .. .

I like this guys reviews for sure as they very informative but I've never taken his results at face value. Your own personal needs should factor into your decision.

I had a Jeep with some kind of rubbery bed liner laid in really thick inside. I liked the rubbery stuff in terms of keeping noise and heat down but I honestly didn't like it overall. It always looks white/red because holds all of the dirt. Drilling/grinding that rubbery stuff was horrendous because it would just just clump and make a huge mess. I used Raptor in my trucks bed and interior and it sat outside in the GA weather for 5 years without issue before I sold it. Raptor has also been inside my Jeep for 4 years without any issues. I know everyone doesn't have an air compressor but Raptor and any other spray in bedliner (not the spray can type stuff) has the ability to spray in with different textures depending on your psi settings. It may not matter to some but for me, I like a smoother texture that grips less but cleans easier and doesn't trap dirt. That's something most roll on and spray can style bedliners just don't have.

Cool video! I was glad to see Durabak do so well, as that’s is what will soon be on my rig. Thanks for sharing the video
