Default Anyone do truck bed lining stuff?

I'd like to get the bed of my truck professionally rhinolined or lined with one of the other top brand truck bed linings. Does anyone on this board do it, and if so, how much for a short bed?

I found that most places wanted the same to do my short box Dakota Quad Cab (over the rail) as it cost me to buy a compressor, hoses, undercoating gun, and a gallon of DuraBak and do it myself. As a bonus, I still have the air compressor, hoses, etc...

Honestly, my sprayed durabak looks pretty good - as good as Rhino. Now I'll say the LineX (because it's applied hot) looks a little better. However, I still like the air compressor bonus - and you can do the interior of your Jeep whenever you get one again...

Ryan at RBR off road in Waterford does it. He uses permatech I believe. I am considering him to do the tub of my jeep. Just trying to justify the $$.

I called up Ziebart in Utica for a price. $350!! Baby bertha and I are rhino-lining the floor of her cab tomorrow with the spray on stuff. If it turns out well I'll just do it myself over the summer.

HEy jeff this sounds like the best deal.. eeven after you do your ttuck BB's cab .. you'll have it for your jeep, and who ever else wants you to do it (for a fee of course) i'd prob pay you to do the the tub of my YJ project when i get it

My buddy set him self up to do them, he bought 5 kits and the cost was about $125.00 per. and the gun was about $450.00 so if you check at a Auto paint supplie house you can probably set your self up.

one thing to say about the stuff, it very dangerous. any amount you can smell is over the legal limit of exposer.

The Dupli-Color truck bed lining in the spray can worked out pretty well in Baby Bertha's cab floor in her truck. I want to see how well it holds up... before I use it, but it turned out looking pretty good. So, I might just use that stuff. $8 a can x at least 15 cans...$120. Still a helluva lot cheaper, and if I'm meticulous with taping and such, will turn out just as good.

I have to agree with the Durabak. I did the inside and outside of my bronco with it. If i remember the course was about 89$ a gallon and you need Xylene to thin it, I found that at Home Depot. As for the gun I got mine from Eastwood company. I used the smooth blue on the outside and it came out better that i thought.
Heres where i got the gun

The way the gun sprays this stuff it still has a little texture but does not have the grit in it like the course. It is not smooth by any means.
It hides bad body work great

I was getting ready to post the same thing Tonka did...chipping and pealing. I use to be a corporate trainer for Ziebart so I have alot of experience with Rhino Linings. The stuff you buy at Autoworks or similar places may save you alot of money in the first place but it is no where durable and will lift and peel over time...Ziebart use to have a product very close to the over the counter stuff, it was a epoxy base system (still used over seas)...depending on the use of the truck it had to be touched up every year.

I used the Duplicolor on my bumpers and it sucks. Comes off very easy.

I've decided just to stick to my drop-in bedliner and stuff. I'm not gonna drop over 350 bucks on a four year old truck that's just gonna be a DD and tow rig.

hey GM i used some of that duplicor truck bed lining on my XJ roof rack rail. It was a 1995 xj and in '03 i added new thule cross bars feet and accessories and the old rails look like total dried out faded powder coat, chiped, flaky, just total crap. I stripped them with aircraft paint stripper, and they looked real nice textured finish for two years. This summer they started flaking. You might fair better inside a cab than i did outside on a hot roof. I imgine the bed of a truck would heat up and in two years would start to deteriorate.

Look into that link romey posted. Permatech is a very nice product. There is a guy in royal oak that does it. He used to be on MJ thats how i learned about it. He gave 10 % discount to MJ members. It doesnt fade, you can get it tons of colors, and it can be touched up easily. look into it!

This is Durabak Smooth Blue with UV protection. I bought it from a reseller named John Dempsey. I bought two gallons and painted the outside, the inside, and the underside of it. THe two gallons didn't match in color or consistency.

Mine turned out perfectly smooth... looked just like enamel paint until you touched it. Then after a month and a half of sitting in the sun it was all faded and chalky. The half of the truck that didn't see sunlight still looked beautiful.

I noticed it takes impacts and light abrasions very well. It doesn't care if you scrub it with a tire brush and survives even brake fluid. However, repeated strong abrasions will peel it off quickly.

If it wasn't for the fact that the two gallons I bought didn't match (and the company didn't seem to care) and the fact that it faded so bad... I'd recommend it. But I won't. Maybe their textured stuff holds up to sunlight better. I know if the urethane around my windows can not fade there is no reason the bedliner can't.
