I'm mostly done stripping the inside of my 2013 JKUR so I can bedline the entire interior. I want a glossy (easy to wipe) surface and not something grip-tape-like that's going to trap dirt/mud. Also, being topless/doorless in Phoenix, I need outstanding UV protection. Should I roll my own Monstaliner, or pay to have someone spray it on? My only concern with rolling my own is ending up with a non-uniform look (I've seen some good pics, but others look cheap and DIY from a distance.) Thoughts?

I wouldn't do that to a 2013. He'll I wouldn't even strip the interior on my 07.
Why do you need this done?

Pay a pro, get a thicker coat than rolling your own and can spray all the crazy spots

To protect it over time and just for looks. I use my JK and run it pretty hard, so anything to protect it from abuse (inside and out) is good in my book. Plus, I really know my rig in and out because I've pretty much taken it apart and put it back together again (or at least that's a goal

Main concern is rust and easy cleaning. I regularly hose the inside off and don't want to encourage rust if the thin paint is scratched.

I did it awhile ago on my 2010 and it's one of the best things I've done.

Add rubber slush mats and leaks or water are irrelevant. Cleaning is done with a wipe down or a shop vac set to blow.

If I bought a new jeep next week, the carpets would be gone and it'd be lined almost immediately.

I did it DIY. But if I was doing it again, I'd use a body shop and just have them use a mat black auto paint. Line-X is great, but it's very expensive and nobody needs anything that tough in a passenger compartment.

I'd spray it

UPOL RAPTOR WRITE-UP LINK> U-Pol Raptor Bed Liner in tub - Shots - Notes - Reference Threads

THE GOOD
I sprayed mine myself with Upol Raptor after tons of research. With parts i needed to buy it cost me under $200. It's super easy to clean with just a wet towel. It's got a hard smooth type of texture to it. For the most part I have been very happy with it. It's UV safe and can be tinted to any color you like.
THE BAD
I sprayed over the rear seat holder loop (2dr) and had some chip off of there when I put the rear seat in. I also put it in wrong and slamed it down to try to get it to latch down and had a 1/4" chip come off were some metal vs metal hit.
OTHER OPTION THOUGHTS
You can also spray Monstaliner if you choose to go with that type of bedliner. It was my close 2nd choice. I would defiantly stay away from Herculiner and Rustolum which are way more of a rough texture and hard to clean. Herculiner also fades. If you go with Line-x you can usually get a deal if you do all the prep work. They were going to do mine for $500 that way. With Line-x you have to get an upgrade to get it UV color safe. I think its called xtra.
