Prep work is EVERYTHING. Monstaliner WILL NOT hide imperfections. Make your Jeep perfect and sand before putting it on.

Like Overkill said, PREP work is everything. You dont however want to sand to bare steel. If you do, the bare steel needs to be primed and sanded.

Take out anything that you can get out, unbolt all the seats, seatbelts, and anything else that you dont want it on.

Mask off the underside of the dash and the pedals, cover the entire dash and steering wheel,

And dont put it anywhere that you dont want it...IT DOESNT COME OFF easily. Wear rubber gloves, cause it wont wash off your skin, you have to wear it off. I put a double pair of surgical gloves on when i use it.

Make even coats, dont try and make it cover with just the first coat, it will fill in. 1 gal will let you get 3 full coats on the interior, with enough left over to do the floor pans and other high traffic areas.

Just make sure you do sand it enough to give every inch texture for it to grip. If you do not and in 6 months rub up against a branch or something or hit it hard with the sprayer at the car wash you could end up taking large chunks off. The goal is to scuff the paint really well all over.

One more bit of advice... don't just prep (remove rust, dirt, etc). Use a quality degreaser on everything. The previous owner on mine didn't and it's obvious in how it's peeling up in several places where water and oil and grease obviously pooled.
