Default Tub lining

I'm thinking of lining my tub with something a bit more rugged than carpet. I've heard theres spray you can get to make it similar to a truck bed. Could you guys give me a run down on what my options/prices would be?

I just did my glass tub with rihnoliner a gal kit was just over $100 at autozone its only been a few weeks but it looks great, it is a bit move ruff or textured then it needs to be in my opinoin but its not slippery at all. You just sand the suface a little and use a roller and brush to apply. I figured out how to do it smoother if you are interested

I put the rihnoliner in my jeep with a steel tub, just sanded it to roughen it up a bit and put 2 coats on and it looks great. I've had it in mine for over a year now and have minimal scratches in it even with having a huge tool box in the back.
the kit i bought had the rolling right with it that was nice

I did herculiner on mine - did it about a year ago - no issues, looks great. Like any product you decide on, the prep work is key. You'll want to strip out everything from the interior (minus the dash). Just follow the instructions, and have some time to do it. Most kits will take 24-48 hours for the product to cure before you can re-install your seats.

Yes prep is the key!! I decided not to use herculiner because it is not uv stable, and needs a special clear coat to make it uv stable.. while the Raptor liner is ready to go out of the can

Little trick I learned was put on first coat with roller supplied in kit just like instruction say
For second if you want smoother in spot (top of fenderwells maybe) put second coat on with brush also supplied in kit and you can still use roller on floor
I have enough to do three coats on my cj-7 out of one gal
Have plenty of beer on hand also you need to wait about an hour between coats
