Pro Cheap and does a decent job of protection. If you don't haul alot it will do the job. I have had it in my last two truck. But with all the hauling I do alot I will not put it in my next one when ever that comes.

Cons it is kind of messy it takes awhile to get it off your hands. Not as thick at spray in.

The biggest thing it is cheap. It take two coats to do it well. I put one on two days in a row let it dry good. The instructions say it will dry much faster than it really does. Good luck.

I've had good luck with mine, but it I had a newer, nicer truck I'd definetly go with professional. mine has worn where I slide my ramp under my wheeler and is starting to peel in places after about 5 years. all in all, worth the money for light duty.

I agree with what Ryan just said. It's well worth the money for light duty. I have put Herculiner in two of my pick-ups. I have hauled everything from rock to wood and it has held up fine. It will start to wear down eventually, but I haven't had it peel off or anything. If you prep it correctly it will adhere great. If it does peel of for some reason, you can buy a quart of it to fix up those spots. Just dab it on. I have also used it on trailer frames, my boat floor and wooden stairs. It really helps to keep things from sliding around as well. It doesn't matter that you have a topper on your truck. That really shouldn't be in the way of application. Make sure to use it in a well ventilated area and definetly wear some rubber gloves. The first time I used it I didn't wear gloves and had it on my hands for about 2 months! Like I said, well worth it for light duty and the cost factor. I saw the gallon kit was on sale at Menards this week. That's all you'll need to do your truck bed.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow
