Thinking of having my cradle sprayed with truck bedliner has anyone tried this? Wondering if it will last or not. I have it in epoxy primer now and not sure if i will just paint it or have bedliner sprayed over it. Not sure if the bedliner would adhere to the epoxy primer or not. Any thoughts

Bedliner epoxy is way tougher than rubberized coating.

That being said what would be a good reason to do this? I would rather have it powder coated, or just painted. If you are trying to protect it from winter, yes bedliner coating will help and probably be a good thing.

As for coating over primer, contact the manufacturer of the product you are looking at and see what they say.

Any fluid leaks can play havoc with the bed liner or undercoating. Use chassis paint or powder.

I know lots of guys who used bedliner in the whole engine bay. Theyve done K member, firewall, fender wells and core supports. Looks pretty good too. I never seen them have any problems with anything spilled on it. The stuffs practically indestructible. It should be fine over your primer...they put it in painted beds. I fixed some dents in a pickup bed side. It was done inside with bedliner. I didnt damage it beating on it and using a porta power. Another guy hauls all his parts including engines and transmissions, all puking out anti freeze, trans fluid, steering fluid, oil and its all still fine under a half inch of sludge, not to mention them sliding around.
