bedliner?

Thinking about losing the carpet and going with the bedliner. I was wondering the cost involved and also wanted to hear your opinions and recommendations.

I'm doing the same thing to mine. I hear it will be louder. Cost will depend on if you do it yourself and the material you use.

I used roll on herculiner in the inside of my tub. You can buy the roll on kit for about $100. It was pretty simple.

I like it better than the carpet, doesn't hold the water and won't rust. After getting it dirty and washing out my jeep a few times, it doesn't have the brand new look but it can always be rattle canned.

Edit, I forgot to mention, it's not the softest thing to put bare feet on but floor mats can be bought.

As for it being louder, haven't noticed because my jeep is so damn loud to begin with!

was gonna say pretty much the same thing, except i used Rustoleum, bout the gallon, roll-on and brush kit, pre cleaner, sand paper, and some rags for 75 bucks but my jeep isnt loud and i noticed no real difference in sounds, seems a tad louder on interstate but i only did a bout 2 coats of liner, plan on doing more later, i also got a couple cans of the spray on liner to get to places that the brush or roller wouldnt fit into, which reminds me i need to get a can for some touch ups

I cought the Herculiner kit on sale at Car Quest over a year ago for $79.99 with a $20 mail-in rebate for a total of $59.99!

If it's any loader in the Jeep, it's not enough to notice!

Did the back half of the tub and the flares on ours for around $50.00. Dupli-Color Bed Armour spray cans (4) from Advance. I like the spray as you get into the places you can't with a brush, and you get a more even texture. 4 coats and done. Dries quick.
And it's holding up nice to two large dogs and wifeys driving habits.


As for louder? No clue, without a top on can't tell you.

I too used the roll on herculiner. put two coats on everything inside. then rattle canned the hard to reach spots. looks great, ready to get rained in. Just make sure you prep very well or it might flake off.

Mine was sprayed with U-pol Raptor liner, love the texture, love the look, love the ease of clean up I don't notice the noise being worse or the heat. I think you can get the kit with the spray gun for about $100 online, if you have a compressor it's not a bad job to do....

I used Al's Liner to spray mine. I haven't noticed any more noise, it actually seems quieter. Here's a write up I did for or club. • View topic - Al's Liner bed liner write up

I used Monstaliner (there are package discounts available) and I was VERY happy with the results. My wife even commented how nice it is - and she's picky!

I was able to do the door sills and tub rail as well...









No matter what product you go with, the quality of the job will be 100% dependent on the quality of the prep work. Sand/scuffing and good cleaning will ensure the best adherence of any of the roll/spray on solutions.



I also applied some paint before the liner was dropped down to stop any potential rust areas.



Line-X is nice, but it is WAY pricey for my budget.

Herc is nice too, but too sandpapery for my preferences.

U Pol Raptor is a great solution (and available in different colors), but I don't have access to an air system/gun to apply it effectively.

Monstaliner had a rough enough texture w/o being tough and provides enough grip for me. It was about the same price as the Herc or Rustoleum products and I had read a LOT of positive comments over on JF. The maker/vendor is on there too and provided excellent customer service as I prepped and did the work.

I did the bed armor. Not a bad product, I need to add a few layers to it though. I also did the fender flairs, that was a good move!

Jmaggi: just fyi, there are a ton of threads on bedliner already on the forum, just search bedliner and herculiner. I found them to be very helpful when I did the bedliner in my Jeep.
