Thinking about doing a DIY bed liner.

Opinions recommendations?

Make shure it's (the bead) very clean, and very well scuffed.then tape carefully. You can save a lot o money DIY, mine has zebart liner,and is 10 yrs old,with some tears n gouges,but still looks good. Point, it may get scuffed or gouged at some time,but will still look good. IMHO the roll on may work better,because the spray is inconsistent,and you may end up rolling the spray,to level it out,anyway ! Have fun with it,keep some thinner n a rag around,just in case.

Thanks for the input, prep is key!

Will post some pictures, only doing the sides and exposed areas of the bed...have a bed mat that is trimmed around my 5th wheel hitch.

Was quoted 700 to have it done by line-x.....just can't spend that much.

There are several brands of DIY bed liners available. I used the Dupli-color Bed Armor and was very satisfied. It applies with a paint roller. Just make sure that you do a good job of preparing the surface. You will probably want to use an oscillating sander to speed up the preparation.

Depending what you plan on hauling in your bed, I use mine mainly for camping gear, my fifth wheel hitch, fire wood etc. I had the Bedrug in my last 3 trucks. Love it, looks good and stays looking good.

i just got a rhino liner sprayed in. Bed and over the rails and was only $500. Helps that the dealer ran it through at cost! Very pleased. Dont want to put anything on it :-)
