hmm... I'll have to see if we have anyone close over there, just for the sake of knowing.

My '88 had one of the DIY roll-on liners, not sure if it's herculiner, duplicolor, or w/e, but it's coming off big time. Quality wise it's similar to flat black rustoleum with a couple of handfulls of sand in it. I'd stay away from the cheap, one part systems, unless you plan on never using the bed. Even then, it'll probably come off eventually.I threw a bed mat over my crappy liner until I decide to do anything. I'll probably just flat-black over the chipped parts and call it a day...touch it up when it gets scratched again.

I love my BFG AT tires, and thats all I will run on my truck.

As for DIY bedliners, I don't care for them at all. They don't hold up nearly as well and after some time in the sun they become gray and chaulky.

I don't really care for spray in bed liners to begin with. I just have a rubber mat. If I ever have to get one it will probably be Line X.

Buy American, get the Goodyear's. A little more money but worth it, i bought the duratracs and they're perfect for me. No road noises, good wear, and they are pretty aggressive if you need that. Also, just what i've heard about the diy bedliners is they fade in the sun and can crack which is tough to fix. Good luck

Use a quality DIY bed liner

For the tires. I have had BFG all terrains and I dont like em.
I am currently running Falkin WildPeaks on my ranger. I like em. Most of the time when plowing i just leave it in 2wd. I have about 20k on them so far and are wearing well. I will most likely get 100k out of them if not more

I'd stay away from the DIY bedliners. While I like to do everything myself as much as anybody else here, any DIY kit is going to be limited because it has to have a shelf life whereas commercial products like Rhinoliner and Line-X are a two part mixture that hardens in minutes after being sprayed on.

I've had Hurculiner and I loved it until summer rolled around and the UV broke it up big time. I did a full three coats and by early July it was shrinking around each rubber granule to the point that I could see the scuffed up paint again.

With the new bed and paint job, I'm forking out for a Line-X bedliner. My dad has it on two of his trucks and it's survived 2 years of farm use so far.

From what KevinGnWV is saying, it sounds like Rhinoliner works really well too. In my personal experience, I've only seen one truck with Rhinolining and it was chipping all over the place, but I'm not sure on the trucks use nor the installation quality, so take it with a grain of salt.

As for tires, I've still got the Firestore Transforce AT's that my dad had on the truck before I got it from him. They are great on the road and they wear very slowly on pavement and on gravel (mostly crushed limestone) even with a pallet of seed or other heavy loads in the truck at all times. They have never let us down in the field (I'm in Iowa so lots of black dirt, I don't know how they would handle clay or other soils), and snow traction isn't bad, but they really suck on ice.

.
The Al's DIY bedline I put the link to is a 4 part mixtue just like SCORPION bed liner and similar to the line x and rhino. It is not garbage like herculiner or the duplicolor crap they sell

I must have missed your post (forum posting at work will do that); I haven't heard of Al's before; now you've got me wondering if Line-X is the correct route...

Line-x is very nice. My GF mom has it in her truck. I just wasn't going to spend $400 for a bedliner.


My Hurculiner is holding up great. I do put quite a bit of stuff in my bed also.

I also Hurculined my dads 07 F150 and its doing great too.

91chevywt: Looks like the walmart bedliner.

For a spray in bedline that is completely tintable and DIY your self with shop quality results, it is a win win

I'm really not sure where it's from, but my walmart sells Herculiner. It's all dried out from the sun. It's almost all gone under the bed mat. Just want to add, a previous owner did this, not me
