I think it only comes in quart or a gallon. The gallon comes in a kit that has pretty much everything you need to get the job done. I'd go with the gallon kit, even though you really only need around 1/2 for the inside. But then again if your just doing the inside lay on more layers or save the rest for when you get bit by the bug and start doing your bumpers!

How do you like it? It's hard for me to judge by the pictures, since it is black and kind of hard to see. I was thinking of doing the same, and don't want to just attempt it since it is pretty expensive stuff.

This is funny. I live in CT also and just today I herculined the exterior of my black jeep too. Its still a little tacky. I hope the rain holds out so I can put another coat on it tomorrow. That Herc bug has a vicious bite !
Did you do the hard top with it too ?

Yea I know its a bit hard to tell from the pics but I like it alot. The only thing that I would do different is by an additional quart and lay down a couple more layers. In some parts it's a bit uneven spread of the chunks. Other than that I am pretty happy with it so far. We will see how winter goes.

Haha, that is funny. Got any pics yet? How you liken it so far?

Nah I didn't do the hard top. I actually painted the ht this time last year bf I decided to herc the whole thing which I did this summer. I think hercing the ht would be overkill lol.

Good luck with the rain!

I like it alot. I bought 2 or the Herculiner kits but I only used about 3/4 of one gallon for 2 coats. Its still drying now. Not sure if I'm liking the fender flares though

Hey man it looks good. I think if you plan on throwing a lift on it the flares will look awesome! If you don't and you want stock flares I'll trade you

You can find it at auto parts stores. I found it at autozone. Yes it is called Herculiner. Just check around because sometimes different stores have it on sale, its reg price is 99 I got it 89 and then saw that advanced auto parts had a sale for 79.
