I have Herculiner in mine...it does fade fast, but I didn't really care one way or another for it to maintain that gloss black appearance. It's rough but I prefer that as it prevents things from skidding around on the floor as easily. I also used some of my extra to coat the step part of my rock sliders and it gives me grip climbing up when my feet are wet/snow covered/muddy. I tried either the Duplicolor or Rustoleum version in our dump truck at work (for the interior) and I agree with Ibuildembig...whichever one I used was thin, had no texture whatsoever and started chipping away after just a few months of very light use.That truck isn't used that much at all. I recoated it with Herculiner a couple months ago. We'll see how it holds up...definitely looks nicer having a little texture to it.

I used the Hurculiner to do the interior of my YJ when I decided to rip out the carpet, it is rough but the kit makes it easy. Still looks great after a year. I have had no issues with it chipping or wearing out.
Checkout Al's liner it's on amazon with free 2 day prime shipping. It can be tinted any color, have metal flake and rubber crumb added. I've sprayed a jeep, a 4runner, sub boxes, and a kitchen in the stuff. *It adheres really well, especially to itself should you need to repair it. It's very flexible, I've sprayed my interior upholstery with it and it has stood up well to being trampled on and cleaned. *Being on carpet it also gives so its not as harsh as a bare body floor. * Herculiner was crap for me, doesn't adhere well, and doesn't have near the solids of raptor or Al's liner.
I did my YJ 3 years ago in Herculiner and it is still fine. I also did the bed of my 1976 Chevy with it and all is well. I just did one of my TJ's in Duplicolor. We shall see. The Duplicolor kit had a roller that was much too wide to fit beteen the ribs in the rear floor of the TJ. Ended up brushing it all on. Looks fine. I use it a little different in that I reinstalled the carpets in both Jeeps. I am using these products because we cross a lot of water and while I like the carpeting for noise, comfort, etc, I want to keep the Jeeps as rust proof as possible. Another small point, I applied both products inside my garage. The Herculiner had an awful smell to it. Terrible! You could hardly smell the Duplicolor, much more pleasant to apply.
I prepped on a Saturday and painted 2 coats on a Sunday. Probably worked 4 hours on Saturday and 2 on Sunday total. Prep is by far the most important part.
I'm going to be doing the inside tub of my YJ very soon.
So, I ended up going with Magnet Paint's Monstaliner DIY bedliner in Dark Burnt Orange, and I did the whole body in and out. Great Product!!
