Bed lining entire jeep?

I have a 2000 jeep wrangler. The tub is pretty shot so some time over the summer I am looking to get a new tub. My dad recently put rustoleum bed liner on his hood, flares, sliders, and floorboard. I love the look and durability of the bed liner so when I get my new tub I was thinking of putting it on my whole jeep, body and all. I was just wondering if there was anything I shouldn't paint with the bed liner, if you have any tips or ideas and also if you think it would look good (:

Welcome to the forum bud! I know one guy who bedlined or line X his entire jeep. He would be the guy to ask about details. Here's his thread:

It's called "BULLET PROOFING" your Jeep. Kind of like spraying Body Armor on it.
This is done with Rhino Liner in one of their Color choices. ↓



BTW → NOT MY JEEP

Okay. I was going to go a little cheaper and use rustoleum, how much would It be for the colored bed liner? I was thinking of doing all black with all stainless steel hinges and body armor, would that look good?

Look up monstaliner. They'll send out chips to whatever color to see if you like it.

I really wanted to do it myself, is rhino liner something you have a shop do or by yourself?

Raptor liner if you want to do it yourself and they have a tintable version.

I started with the wheels and fender flares, then the doors, then the fenders and now the hood... Give me a couple weeks and the entire Jeep will be Rustoleum spray on bedliner.
I prep the panels quite well, then prime and then use the Rustoleum. I did this my 2006 Nissan Frontier also and it lasted the 6 years I had it.
Total investment about $40 and Ive spent maybe 4 hours on the project in total.

Whatever bedliner you choose, prep is the key to obtain the best and long lasting result.

When prepping, should you take it down to bare metal, or leave the factory paint on and do it over it? My dad took it down to bare metal then used self-etching primer, then the rustoleum, but that's only because his hood already had bed liner on it. But mine has factory paint and primer so I was thinking that would be fine to just go over that.

Dont sand it clear to bare metal. Just rough up the existing paint.

We did my buddies jeep, whole thing in monstaliner. Just roughed up the paint, and go for it. Like others have said, prep is the key, use bug and wax remover, make sure the thing is clean before you paint it. The more time prepping, the better the results.

If I had the money, the place and the help, I'd do it.
Great idea.
Spray on Line X is just the thing.
Good luck, guys.

Well, mine is done except for the tailgate. I didnt have my wheel lug wrench so I could not remove the spare. I will get that done tomorrow.
Spent about 4 hours today prepping and spraying. The most difficult part was masking the windshield frame and windshield. Everything else was a cake walk.
Pictures tomorrow when I am done.

There is alot of prep work on the back of the Jeep... Removing the lights, removing the tire bump stops, removing the spare tire and brake light, license plate frame, lock and handle... But she is all done.
Total investment about $100 including paint, prep pads, goo gone, sanding paper, rags, alcohol, etc. And total time investment about 10 hours.
In about two weeks when I work up the energy I will strip the interior and do it also.

Actually it was rubberized undercoating from the PO. It didn't like the heat or sunlight very much.

So we stripped it down. (That's TheJeepKing helping Dad out)

And sprayed the whole thing with Restoleum bedliner. Then we taped the power bulge and painted orange.

I did my whole jeep in rustoleum bedliner but I also sprayed a automotive clear coat over the bedliner. This helps with cleaning and stops it from fading.

I just bought a new fender, primed, and scuffed it up pretty good with 320 grit and then sprayed a coat of Rustoleum. Too gentle a grit? Looked like it did the job pretty good. It's drying, going to head out it a few and hit it with a second coat. Do you guys clear coat?

How does this hold up to washing with a power washer, or should I avoid power washing?
