Try it free for 14 days. View Full Image. Fortunately for truck owners, there are many options for protecting the bed, with the simplest and most common of these being the standard drop-in plastic liner. However, these too come with their drawbacks. Water, dirt, or worse can easily get between the liner and bed, which can lead to rust.

In extreme cases, they can also become detached from the bed, ending up along the side of the highway. Thankfully, in the last decade, an alternative bed covering has come into the picture, providing excellent coverage and protection, great looks, and unmatched longevity. Herculiner is the number one brand of DIY roll-on bedliners -- and for good reason.

Because of its proprietary formula, Herculiner is able to bond to any type of material, including wood, aluminum, plastic, fiberglass, rubber, and even asphalt. It also prevents rust and is resistant to gasoline, oil, and solvents. Wanting to give it a try for ourselves, we gathered up a Herculiner Bedliner Kit and set to work making over the bed of our Ford Ranger work truck. Overall, we were quite pleased with the results and are confident our bed will now outlive the rest of the truck, no matter what we toss its way.

Our test mule is a well-used Ford Ranger four-wheel drive that came equipped with a factory 2. This particular truck spent the majority of its life working the oilfields in Oklahoma and Kansas. And, like any good work truck, a toolbox and other assorted parts, pieces, and equipment have made the bed their home. The original owners did a good thing by opting for the factory drop-in plastic bedliner, which left us with a near pristine floor underneath.

Bed prep is key to a good-looking and long-lasting roll-in bedliner. With the old liner and toolbox removed, we started by first sweeping out the decades of dirt and debris that had built up.

Next, we grabbed a hose and bucket and gave the bed a thorough scrub. Once the bed was dry, it was time to rough it up with the provided scouring pads, which allows the Herculiner to properly adhere to the sheetmetal. This is one of the most time-consuming steps, but also the most important. Herculiner provides detailed instructions with each kit.

With the Herculiner mixed well, the first areas that were coated were the corners of the bed, using the provided brush. Next, using the roller and foam pads from the kit, we turned to the bed floor and other larger areas.

While you could use other rollers to apply the Herculiner, these foam ones are designed to work with the heavy, rubber-impregnated material and ensure an even distribution. The work also needs to be performed outside; even with fresh air and a breeze, the fumes can be overpowering. The tailgate is last to be coated. After the first coat was completed, we waited an hour for the Herculiner to become dry to the touch, and then set about applying the recommended second coat.

When applied in warm weather, the Herculiner will become dry to the touch in about an hour, is ready for use in 12 hours, and fully cured in To complement the new look and functionality of our bed, we decided to replace the old steel toolbox with a new gloss-black aluminum diamond-plate model from Delta.

This new box is lighter than the old steel version and has a single lid for better access. The Delta toolbox provides plenty of space for tools, spare parts, and fluids. We even mounted our Snow Performance water-methanol pump inside the box to protect it from the elements. Sources Auto Anything. More Photos View Slideshow. Follow Truck Trend Network Facebook.

Herculiner Pros and Cons

Make sure you at least jump down to the end to read the updates if you don't end up reading the whole thing. My old Ram had a Mopar under rail drop in bed liner. Maybe I'm weird, but I actually liked having a "slick" bed. When I loaded up for a camping trip I could set something on the tailgate and with a good shove, send it to the front of the truck. There were only two things I didn't like about it. One is that it rubs on the stock paint pretty bad so rust in the future was inevitable.
