Truck bed liner

Wondering if anyone has used this on their frame as opposed to POR-15 or Zero-rust . ? I had a full size Dodge truck with the bed done and they had extra and did the rockers and quarters ,its tough stuff for sure .

I think it would be the same as any other coating; possibly better, dunno. I think most of what we hear about POR-15 and RustBullet is hype. I understand it's better than paint, but after special consideration and reading and re-reading about this stuff I've determined it to be exceptional marketing. Not that it won't do what it say's it will do, but they're not special or magical and they're definitely overpriced.

Like anything else it's all about the prep work. Don't skimp on prepping the metal and your coating will hold up for years. I've got the factory coating under my YJ and it appears to have held up pretty darn well for 15+ years to Illinois' two seasons (construction and winter). It's time for it to be redone and I'll probly go with powerwash, chip, sand, more powerwash, rust convertor, and then truck bed liner. The stuff Rust-oleum's putting out is comparably inexpensive and readily available.

Funny you mentioning Rustoleum, they now have sparay-on truck bed liner readily available at your local Home Depot or whatever ,I grabbed 2 cans and tried a prepped spot on my frame ,this stuff seems to be very tough and at $7.00 a can I can do my frame ,axels ,steering components and under body very cheaply and it also claims to stop rust (to some degree I'm sure ) .
