Talking Yet another Hurculiner success story...

Here's how she sits as of 5 mins ago:






Waiting for the first coat to dry on my tailgate, it will be more even after the second coat:


I can't believe how cheap it is to do, we squeezed in 2 coats on 1.5 Jeeps lol. We just got the rear area done on my buddies before we ran out.

P.S. Thank you to dnbearcat for inspiring me to finally do it!

Looks good. I need to do it to mine. I don't think my tub is going to like going another year like it is now. Gotta do it before the white stuff starts flying.

This has to be one of the most practical, rewarding, and cool looking upgrades you can do to your interior. I love not having a rear seat too, there is sooo much more space back there, I don't think I will put it back in unless I have to.

It also makes for a good excuse not to take my Jeep places with friends so I don't have to use my gas.

I also installed my new stereo and sound bar, its crazy how big a difference two more speakers made

Haha, I'm hoping my Xmas is Jeep themed as well

I think the whole kit was around $70, really not bad.

Make sure you go and buy the UV protectant so it doesnt fade on you.

You have to strip everything outta the interior then rough up all the areas that you are going to rhino. Then clean up all the dust/dirt from the sanding. It's tedious trying to get into all the nooks and crannies. But a good prep job will get you good results, a bad prep job and your rhino will peel eventually.
