Roll-on bed liners - who has what?

I very recently started looking into this and figured i'd ask around here also.

So far i've seen that NAPA has the Duplicolor stuff. That's all I got. (I just started looking this weekend lol)

Where can I find Rhino liner? What about Line-X? Who has Herculiner?

I know about all the poor prep horror stories. I just wanna know who carries what so I can get a better idea on pricing.

Okay, nevermind the Line-X stuff. Apparently they do the stuff by appointment only and this is something that I wanna DIY.

I used Gator Guard (Dominion Sureseal) in my old Nissan a few years back. I got it at CT. It's a 2-part urethane type finish. It's pretty tough stuff and the price is right. I put it on with a roller and a brush. Realistically, for a full-size, you'd probably need two kits. I found the trickiest part was seeing where you need to go over it again. It's a lot of work to do a neat job.

For one-part finishes like Duplicolor or Herculiner, I'd try Herculiner first. I've used the Duplicolor on other stuff, and it's definitely tougher than just paint, but I'm not convinced it's the best for a truck bed considering you basically have to do the same amount of prep work as a 2-part finish. On the other hand, it's very easy to fix scratches and dings.

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.

I used GatorGuard too. Bought it from Acklands-Grainger. They have two different size kits, so I bought one of each. Small one for inside on cab floor and the bigger kit for the box. I bought a "Schutz" gun to spray it on and have to say it worked and looks great.

I used the herculiner on my last truck and I'll say X2 on getting the two cans. The bedfloor and tailgate held up really well but the sides eventually started to break off (after 3 years). Make sure you do a good job on the prep sanding and cleaning it.

According to the Herculiner website NAPA is said to carry it. I didn't see it when I was there so I guess a confirmation phone call is in order.

Interesting info, fellas. Thanks. Other's please feel free to pipe up.
