I have seen the roll on, it looks good but it is very sharp feeling. I wouldn't advise spraying it with Rhino Liner because it is soft and it fades ( unless you do the UV protection too ), I like the linex because it goes on more uniform and is tough but if you hit it with something sharp it will chip. There's some do-it-yourself stuff sold on ebay that is supposedly very nice, decent priced, and looks good from the pictures I saw. The dealer is also located in Spring, TX and from what I understand will allow you to go pick it up rather than paying all of the shipping. He is also experienced at spraying vehicles so he will help you with any questions you have. I haven't used it just have a friend that did his research.

Good luck

Agree with ChevyBogger Ive sprayed for 4 years and spray on is the way to go. The roll does leave sharp edges and is very hard chips when something hard or heavy hits it.

i personaly dont think its work the price and its preatty heavy the best thing i ever did to my bronco is chose to primer the whole thing insead of bed liner it was $70 to do the whole truck and i have another gallon but, ive seen bedliner chip if get body damage or go into a thick tree branch, haveing said that its not my truck. if you do it stay away from spray can liner i did my tail gate with rattlecan liner and the first time something got draged across it it left big scrape marks all the way through the liner

I used roll on on (durabak, and herculiner) the full tubs of all my 4runners. It peels when weight (tranny's, tcase, motors) is dragged across it but my coatings were pretty thin I plan on re-coating with the same stuff. Easy and cheap. I'm trying to decide whether I want the outside too but I've had flat paint and I think I'll stick with it it hides the dents good! Plus it's easy to sand and re spray, bedliner seems kinda permanent. As far as outside I'd probably go with spray for the thicker coat, that is unless it's a mall crawler! The only benefit to the roll on is it's cheaper. Only benefit to roll on is you can get it for $60 a gallon when it's on sale
