Don't spend the premium for the BFG's. Check out the General Grabber AT2 tires. They're cheaper and the tread pattern is almost identical to the BFG's even in terms of traction. My brother has a set on his 94 bronco, my dad has them on his GMC Jimmy and the mom's Suburban.

Funnily enough, the sub's 4x4 has been dinked since we bought it and I finally got my dad to just change tires for better traction because mom was complaining of slipping so much. We got the 4x4 fixed at the same time the tires were put on and for the first couple of weeks during the winter and snow storms, she didn't even realize the 4x4 was fixed, but she was happy at the amount of traction she had.

Of course the tire change was from Firestone Destination Le's, but still.

I would put those tires on my truck, but it's a street truck and in my opinion, it'd look funny with knobby tires. Maybe this winter I'll get a set of cheap rims and get some AT tires.

I've seen Al's liners before. you get 1 gallon of material (all parts combined), for like $100 bucks. Assuming no solvents (which I doubt) you are only getting one gallon of material on the whole truck surface. The average liner we spray, uses between 3-4 gallons of material. This means that Al's liners are 1/3 to 1/4 the thickness of a professionalism installed liner.

There is nothing wrong with line x. I had one sprayed in after another FAILED herculiner. But if you want to DIY and you can be more creative, ALs is the way to go

A short bed gen 9 has a bit over 80ft² of surface area in the bed, if you don't go over the rails (including the tailgate). 2 gallons is 0.267ft³.

[ .267ft³ / 80ft² = 0.003342ft (0.0401in) ] or just over 1/25" Thick. Most professional liners that use 3-4 gallons will be 1/12 - 1/16 on the average depending on the installer (there are a lot of them out there that will screw you).

We spray 1/8" on the floor (40ft²) and 1/16" on the sides (40ft²) for an average of 1/12" thick at our shop.

Reading over what I just wrote, I feel like I'm kind of being a ***** by picking apart your post, but I know that what your saying is impossible. Sorry if I'm coming off that way.

Edit: I thought I would add this article here, it explains fluids spread over an area and how you can figure how thick it will be. Artice:Coating Spread Rates and Thickness

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.
Don't you usually have your tonnue cover on? If so, its not baking in the sun.

The previous owner of my truck had used Herculiner (he purchased at Mills Fleet Farm) in the bed, top of rails, and the bottom 6-inches rockers of truck. It is holding up along the bottom of the truck real well. The rails held up well also, until I got the truck... every time I slide something heavy and metal across, it peels right off. He for some reason put a plastic Custom brand drop-in bed liner. It is coming off when I get home! I was seriously considering DEE ZEE brand bed matt. DEE ZEE has a big selection of junk for our trucks.
I will probably have to recondition the bed since having that stupid plastic liner in there. I will either have a friend spray clear coat at the body shop, or apply Herculiner. Whichever is cheaper. and then once that cures all the way, I am for sure definately putting a bed matt on top of it. the only thing about bed mat is that they might trap condensation underneath, will have to air it out after rain storms I suppose.

anyway.
just sayin
