Herculiner on tub floor?

I have a 93 YJ with very little body rust and I am thinking about using Herculiner on the floor instead of carpet. Does anyone have any thought on this?

I did it to my Jeep and it's one of the best mods I have done. After a long day wheeling just hose it out.

My 92 is lined. The PO did it. It was done some time ago and looks like it is holding up very well. My guess is it has been done for at least 5 years. I am going to touch it up when I get it back on the road.

I ripped the carpet out of my 92 and did the hurc liner in it and I wish I had done it sooner. They have a kit at oriellyauto parts that runs about 89. I would get a extra can for the tuch ups. I love it and it looks awesome too.

I did mine 2 weeks ago. Best mod I have ever done. You can buy the Herculiner kit at Advanced Auto Parts online for $59 ($89 - 30 using coupon VISA). Just make sure you prep with TSP and Xylene after you rough up the surface.

I also did this about 6 months ago and very glad i did it. I can not tell much difference in heat or noise but there are things you can do to take care of those problems should they arise. Prepwork is everything, take your time and it will last forever.

I just finished mine yesterday and I already love it. Here is a tip for you... Remove the rollbars. It is quite easy to do and you will likely find considerable rust underneath the front plates. They installed these from the factory with zero rust prevention underneath, not even paint! Fix that now while you have the opportunity. It is also 1 less thing to work around when applying the liner. Easy job, but prep work takes a lot of time.

i did mine but did not take the drivers side seat out because of a bolt that did not have a head on it. i used a spray can stuff for under the seat. thinking about trying to take the seat out again when i have some time and redoing the entire driver side. so far i like it. one thing i am going to do is get some of the tool box mats that have the holes in it and put that in the floor to cut down on the heat and help water drain.

Spray a good cleaner on the floor before you wash it. I use simple green and a scrub brush, and that seems to do the job well enough for me.

I need to redo my Herculiner. Put on another two coats. It didn't go on too well the first time even though I took a wire wheel on a drill to the whole tub, then wiped it all down with denatured alcohol. Even so, I'm happy with it. I get puddles in there that freeze in the winter, so then I have an ice rink in my jeep.

Can't wait to recoat it. I hope it comes out well

I had a prob with the watet staying in mine so I just took out the plugs for good. I dont have a prob with the heat with then out the only thing is when I go in water it fills up or when it rains if it ever wants to rain agian out here in cali that the water sprays in a little. But the hole reason for lineing it is so I dont have to worry about the water rusting the tube. I say if you own a jeep and you dont like to get wet or durty you need a new hobbie

This past weekend I had to touch up some spots where I had driven with the old leaf springs in the back and it scuffed it up. If I were to do it again I would do more that 2 coats. Probably more like 4. Also had nerf bars that were real slick when it was muddy or wet. Taped off a rectangle where you step and applied it, works like a charm.

when you remove the drain plugs, find a tapered round object just a little larger than the drain hole, put it in the drain hole and hit it a couple of good hard thumps. that will dimple the holes outward. they drain much better.

Mine was done in white several years ago by one of the POs. There is rust showing up in very few spots. I may redo next year. Just touch up at first and then the whole thing to make the color uniform.

Monstaliner do-it-yourself roll-on truck bed liner

It costs a bit more but it comes in a lot of different colors and it is UV stable. I am doing my interior soon and probably the enterior next Spring. He has a thread at jeepforum.com in the vendor section with lots of picts and videos.
