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.

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
