Best roll-on bedliner?

I plan on bed-lining my 4runner's cargo area at some point this winter, so I might as well start asking questions now. There are so many kits out there, and I don't think there's a head-to-head comparison. I'll be rolling it on; what type would you guys recommend?
I've looked closely at Herculiner and Raptor Liner. Accounting for UV protection, both are about the same price, but Raptor might not be able to be rolled on. It also might get slightly better reviews. However, I know there are lots more kits out there, I could very well be overlooking a good one. I'm very open to suggestions. Thanks!

Al's liner is UV immune and affordable... you should try theirs.

for a DIY roll-on (or spray-on) bed liner, I've been considering the UPol Raptor myself...

Thanks to everyone who weighed in. I'm a little disappointed there's no consensus, though. It's almost like the infamous "what oil do you use?" question. Are most DIY bedliner kits basically created equal?

I'm also considering Grizzly Liner. Their website seems more up front with issues you may encounter and less like they're trying to sell me snake oil. Any thoughts?

Here's a link to a thread from a fella who used Monstaliner and liked it a lot: http://www.yotatech.com/f105/monstal...-liner-232314/

Good luck to you.

There's Herculiner on the sides of my 4runner, serves it's purpose well for me. Just protect your hootus when applying!

The bedliner you get at Walmart is pretty reasonable for the price. I just bought a galllon for 45 bucks. the only thing which i am sure is the same with all of them is you have to mix it really well and it takes a few coats to get it thick.

My son just bought a 85 hilux 4x4( build thread ????) Anyways he bought Herculiner and did the floors and bed. I'm impressed with the quality of the stuff and how easy it went on. He bought a small roller kit and went to it.

I've used both, Herculiner and Grizzly Grip (on the same vehicle!) and much prefer the Grizzly grip.

Both products are good quality, but you can fine tune the texture of the grizzly grip.

This is good to know, thanks for posting! Can you explain how you fine tune the Grizzly Grip texture?

Whether it be roll on or spray on, I use a pick up & trailer that gets trashed big time. It carries demolition debris to a dump. I got them sprayed with a Rhino special product, “Hard Line” which was better & more expensive than their Tuff Grip. It lasted over a year, started pitting, lost some adhesion around fender wells & end of bed, tailgate & the dumping end on the trailer. It started corroding so I got it redone with Fred’s Coating & Media Blasting, Fred is at Fort Worth, San Antonio, and Austin but they guys around US & Canada with the same products. He blasted off the beat Rhino, applied this thicker stuff I’d define as smooth bumps. There were soft, medium & hard versions so I went with hard. The big difference was its maybe twice as thick, hard on top but you can push a screwdriver in & it indents but bounces back. This was only about 8 months ago but there’s zero wear with same use and his warranty states lifetime, unconditional & transferrable. He said he uses Speedliner which is also good stuff but this was lower cost & better (that’s just Fred’s Media Blasting but Fred’s Coating & Media Blasting is the same guy’s better stuff). Cost: Rhino was $1220 for full size bed & 18 ft trailer, Fred’s was $775. In defense of Rhino these were really beat on mercilessly but so far my recommendation is Fred’s stuff.

Use Spray Bedliners, NOT ROll-on Bedliners

Take the plunge and switch to a spray bedliner. There is no reason to use a roll on for your expensive investment. Get a spray bedliner. I would suggest either http://www.alsliner.com or http://www.spray-lining.com/diy/spray-bedliners.php
