Yes, great mod! I t looks awesome, easy to clean. You can do it yourself for about $100 via herculiner, monstaliner, etc... I used herculiner.

Im going to do it this spring/summer as well as add a little to the body.

How well does it hold up. It doesn't chip or come off any does it? Worried my dogs in the back will scratch it off with their razor blade nails

The YJ I bought a couple of months ago is rhino lined. It looks good and is definitely easy to maintain. The drawbacks for me are that with the carpeting and insulation gone there is a heat transfer from the engine conpartment to the cab. I am looking for solutions. A word of caution, the prior owner used a pressure washer to clean the inside and destroyed the stereo system.

There's a member here named Yella who did his entire interior, I believe. Pretty sure he had pics of it afterwards, too. Maybe shoot him a PM.

I did my interior in Line-X. Was worth the time in prep and the cost of having it professionally done.

Where did you get the stuff to do it yourself?

I like the looks of the bedliner coating and that it is very durable. I plan to put it in my TJ as soon as possible, I've seen this stuff up close on some other folks jeeps and it looks good.

What about road noise?? I would think the carpet would stiffle some road noise, not that you'd really notice it over all the wind noise.
Plus, you would also get some temperature insulation from the carpet. My head already broils from the heat radiating through the black soft top on a hot sunny summer afternoon, the last thing I'd care for would be more heat radiating up from the floor. Might as well put some mud terrains on an easy bake oven.

I keep the cargo area carpet in, most of the road noise comes from the rear tire wells. When I pull the top off, I'll pull that carpet out also. I run with qtec slush mats in the front and rear seats.

Many people will Herculiner or Rhinoline (etc...) the interior of their Jeeps, then cover it with the factory carpet. It keeps road noise to an absolute minimum and helps against heat transfer. Then, prior to wheeling, they'll remove the carpet to facilitate easy cleaning.

I'm liking the sound of that.

That's looks great. I looked really hard at raptor but was scared to do it myself. Didn't mind doing the prep but the application I did not feel comfortable given my experience and skills or lack of.

The application was so easy. Hahaha. Like seriously. As far as prep. I could have gone a little further. But I have had no issues.

The mod is definitely worth it. I researched a few of the big name brands, but ended up going with a more affordable alternative, Spray-Lining http://spray-lining.com
I couldn't believe the quality I got for the price! I've had the liner for about 3 years now and it still looks brand new. Cleanup after offroading is virtually nothing now that my Jeep's floor is coated. I can't even tell the difference between my spray-liner and my friend's Rhino spray-liner.

Monsta is the one I would recommend even though I like my raptor a lot. Either once can't miss. I never heard of the spray liner above but looks good.

I Raptored my entire interior and the lower half of my exterior tub.
As most will say, the only hard part was the prep, which is very time consuming to do right. Plus I had a little corrosion issue to take care of in the front floor pans. All told it was a 2 day job.

1 year later, there is no fading, and very little interior chipping, which was from dragging heavy metal objects in/out of my rig. The exterior has had some trail damage chunks ripped off, but what I hit was harder than the sheet metal and would have shredded the factory paint. My main point here is that for any damage, rather than going to a body shop and having to shell out big bucks to match paint and fill gouges, all you have to do is just sand any blemishes and then hit them with a little burst of spray-on rubberized undercoating.

What do you do (if you have a JK) about the wires connecting to the sub and the back windshield wiper? I know that its kind of a blasphemous question for some of y'all, but I have a JK and I am thinking about doing this.

if you do it yourself, make sure you pull the floor plugs out, and when i did my front floor i had to cut the liner off the inside of the plug holes to make plugs easier to put in and pull out.

First of all, that really looks amazingly good. Pardon me for asking, but in an around-about way... how much did that run you? And is it possible to do it yourself? Where would you also order it from?

Thanks a lot....
