What is it that you are wanting to know. It is pretty durable not as good as commercial stuff but for home kit it is good. I did a whole tracker inside and out with it and it held up through the thrashing we put it through.

use the stuff in this how to. Also, roll-ins all depend on the prep:

I've heard good and bad things about it. The good is that it's affordable and easy to apply if the prep work is done right. The bad things that I've heard was it tends to fade rather quickly, but that's if you don't use the UV protectant that usually comes with the kit or if it doesn't you can buy it seperately at an affordable price. I think Scott is right about this one here, because alot of the bad things I've heard usually came from people whom didn't read the instructions and botched the prep work during the process myself. plus you can always paint it to match the vehicle's color if you want to do that sort of thing.

Awsome stuff. Make SURE you sand the bed with 34 grit sandpaper or close to it. Needs to be extremely rough to stick. After that's done degrease it and roll it on. It does fade in about a year though if you park in the sun a lot

IF it were me doing it and you have access to a air compressor, I would personally get this:

Just did mine about a month ago..I like it. Took about 2 days. but u could prolly do it in one. just sand with a 60 grit on da then blow the dust with your leaf blower prep with xylene and then paint it on.. takes an overnight to cure. real easy and cost about 115-120 in total. PS make sure you use a drill mixer!

anywhere from $350-$500. depending if you go over the rails (HIGHLY recommended). But if you do like me and buy a truck with it already in it then its free lol

Best thing to do is just call and get a quote locally from a shop that sprays on Line-X or Rhino liner. I wanna say mine was done by Ford as a dealer ad on for the original customer, not sure though.

i paid 350 ISH not more than 400 for sure for rhino tuffgrip over the bedrails

pisses me off that like 250 of that was for labor according to the reciept

if u go this route id recommend getting the linex or rhino hardline

the tuffgrip isnt quite what i wanted and provides no real grip unless it is SQUEAKY CLEAN but i love having a bedliner PERIOD
