Pretty much the same with the Monstaliner. Not rubbery feeling, but the texture provides some grip unless you have really muddy shoes.

I used Durabak when I had a 2006 Rubi. Comes with a air hose spray adapter and the finished product was matte and good grip because of the ground up rubber bits in it. I did have very slight edge pealing but its all in the prep job.

Line-X is a very very nice liner, I had it for years in my truck. It looked like new years after it had been put on, even with heavy use. It was also fairly easy to clean, as it didn't hold much dirt. A good hosing/gentle scrubbing got out whatever clung on.

My do it yourself choice would be Monstaliner; it's much like Line-X in that it has a nice semi-rubbery feel, and it cleans very easily. Yet at the same time it's not the scrape all the skin off your leg rough like the Herculiner is. It's definitely some good stuff; I've actually got another gallon of it on the way to do the inside tub of my Jeep and the grill.

not to take away form your Linex and Herculiner and Dupicolor. But I painted on oil based Enamel paint in the tub of my Jeep two years ago and its holding up better that the spray in bed liners that I have seen so far. Plus it was a hellofa a lot cheaper than a gallon of bed liner.

Can't argue on price, but then again I wouldn't think that you get the same benefits from the enamel paint as you do from the bedliners (texture, UV stable, etc..).

Texture, no, mine is actually smooth, unless I put sand in it, then I get black nonskid. but as for as far as length, when I was ten I painted my wagon with enamel paint and one time I went home on leave from the navy and it still had all its paint, which is good considering my mom gave it to the kid next door, and he used it for EVERYTHING

I did Herculiner on my 89 and Duplicolor on my 97. I think the Herc looks a little better. The roller I got with the Duplicolor kit was too big and it would not fit between the ribs in the back seat section so pretty much brushed it all on. I have a heated garage and when I did the Herc the smell about killed me. The Duplicolor was much better from a fumes standpoint.

In both cases I linered the tub to protect it from those days where you just get soaked. I never have the top with me in the 89 and it has gotten drowned a time or two. Then I just pull the carpet out and let it dry while the tub stays protected.

Here is a picture of the Duplicolor product.
