Rhino Lining the Interior?

I bought my Wrangler with no carpet (at all) and although it's rugged looking, I'm beginning to think I'd rather something...there.

I wasn't sure about carpet, until my uncle who owns a CJ mentioned rhino lining it instead. I was wondering if it's a good idea, and if anyone has any idea of the price to get it done. If it's much more expensive than carpet, I may just leave it as is.

..unless, if it DOES look bad ass, it looks like I'll be saving up

I think it's pretty cheap if you do it yourself. Many people here have.

No dont do it yourself. That kind is really thin and chips off and looks like **** after a short time but if u have line-x sprayed in it it will last forever. Its harder than rhino and holds up better. Have sprayed one before and workin on doin the one I have now. It quiets the ride down alot, makes stereo sound 100 times better and keeps alot of the heat off your feat. If it is done right and sprayed by professional it should run between 800 and 1200 bucks and worth every penny.

Yeah, seems like it'll be a yearly "project". I definitely wasn't planning on doing it myself; too many terrible DIY experiences. Is the line-x extra to add with the rubber? Or is it actually bought separately and sprayed on?

There are several different kinds of liners that can be used. There are spray and brush on applications. This is one DIY project that I think you could handle. Check through some of the threads here, like What Did You Do For Your Jeep Today and you will see several of them. If nothing else, Quadratec offers floor pan liners that you could use to reduce heat and noise

The cheap DIY kits don't really last, they chip off and they have no consistency to them, there are a few kits available that are OK, but they come no where close to the real thing... A real Rhino Liner will put 3 or 4 gallons of material on the surface of your tub or truck beds where your "roll on DIY kit" will usually get less than a gallon of material. If you do a cheap DIY kit and then decide to do the real thing all of the old stuff would need to be removed making the job more expensive. To do the the complete interior of a jeep usually runs between 4 or 5 hundred. Its pricey but its right and it lasts. I have used the cheap stuff for under carpet or mats but for good stand alone finish thats permanent, its worth every penney... I get a kick out of folks that will spend 20 or 30 grand for a vehicle and the scrimp on the accessory, just doesn't make sense to me.

that is an immensely popular thing to do to jeeps now. i did mine last august and have never looked back. it was the best thing i've done to it thus far. no more worries about carpet getting wet and smelling. i can literally hose it out when it gets dirty. i used roll on herculiner. it cost me about $99 for the 1 gallon kit.

interesting. There's over 100 Jeepers on this forum, and many others who have used several DIY kits, and had no problems like you speak of.

If you prep the Jeep properly you can use Herculiner, Raptor liner, Monstaliner, etc and have fantastic results.

Get this. It runs ~100 bucks for any of those kits...so spending a few hours of your own time will save you 700-1100 dollars....(according to your price quote)

Maybe you're incompetent?


OP - search this topic, on this forum, and some of the other Jeep forums. You'll find more than a couple threads of people who have actually done this to their jeep, and have had fantastic results...Don't put too much faith in those who say it sucks w/o any real world experience. In reality the prep work is the most important factor....so if you can't rough up the surface and then clean it, maybe you shouldn't be doing anything to your jeep....

I do agree, they are not the same as Rhino, and Line-X. But they don't fail as you say...not according to many a Jeeper.

the herculiner is very think and coats like rhino liner does. in order for the herculiner to stick properly, you need to prep the surface really well. wash the tub with soap and water, scuff the surface of the paint with a scouring pad, vacuum the dust and use a paint thinner to clean the entire tub. that is what i did and after months of use and abuse it is holding up fine.

I love the rugged look of it! I thought it would be a bit more complicated than this. This will definitely be a "project" during the summer time once everything else is in working order. Seems very simple to do. Will definitely search for other threads; I had no idea it was well known. Thanks again everyone

That's a very hard answer to give.

There are too many variables. I'd give myself a day's worth of time to prep....some may get by with less, some with more.

I'd likely use a DA orbital sander, and get the big stuff with that, and then do the hard to reach areas by hand.

If you buy a roll of boat carpet, it's pretty cheap. A lot of people do both (carpet over liner) and get comfort and protection.

line-x'd mine last year and would STRONGLY recomend it. cost 600 flat. that was them doing everything, pulling interior, prepping and spraying. 1 day. a buddy did his himself and started peeling withina year. i can also provide a link to a guy who used herculiner and had a terible expierence. followed every single step they said to do (has pics to prove it) and it still peeled and faded. then even with pics of his entire process. herculiner would not work with him. had terrible customer serivce. again, i'd STRONGLY recomend line-x
