DuPont Roll-In Bedliner????

Allright guys........the body shop guy put a DuPont Roll-In Bedliner kit in my Dodge for me. How well does this fair with Rhinolining and all the other ones? Is the DuPont one any good? Anything I should look for?????

I have never heard of any problems with the roll in bedliner, but I can't imagine it would be as thick as a spray in......I have absolutley no information to back this claim up

Everyone I have talked to that has put in the roll on liner has been terribly disappointed in about 6 months. It starts peeling off and will scuff up very easy. The reason Line-X and Rhino Liner are so durable is because they are sprayed on hot. More so the Line-X than the Rhino, but both go on at greater than room temperature and they adhere much better to whatever they come in contact with. The heat is the key to a good secure bond, not to mention that they have a good product as well. Your mileage may vary, but I have not saw a roll on liner last very long yet.

I don't know about the DuPont liner but Herculiner sucks. I am sure they are similar. The Herculiner was destroyed within a couple months of direct sun and it is easy to chip up when putting stuff in the bed.

We've applied Herculiner to several of the shop trucks in the last 6 months. The only problem I've noticed is on the tailgates of one with a service body, the rolled bar across the top is shiny metal again. That's because everything goes across the top of that tailgate.

The techs aren't kind to the trucks and are even worse on the bedliners.

I plan to try Southern Polyurethanes' bedliner kit next at the shop.

OK....this roll in bedliner SUCKS!!!!! I allready have 3 spots where it has chipped off and is down to the paint. Next question.....can I have a Rhino liner or similar sprayed in on top of the roll in liner, or do I have to figure out how to remove the roll in crap????????

If you get Line-X they sand and scuff everything anyways. I am sure they would charge extra to sand that stuff off theough.

They will have to have all of that garbage removed as it needs to bond to the metal/paint. If they sprayed it over that garbage that is not adhearing it would come off as well. Chris
