Not sure if the spray reacted with the sealer, since it didn't happen (or I didn't notice) until last week.
So I've scraped out the seam sealer, and intend to respray the areas. Now, the question is...
Does anyone know of a sealant that will not react that way? I assume it was a chemical problem. A friend of mine with experience in a paint and body shop told me to reseal the seams with polyurethane. Not too sure what to do
Good to know. Haven't heard of that before. I am debating taking it off or leaving it when I line mine. To answer ur Q, not sure.

In a nutshell, does anyone know of a sealant that's petrol proof?

It looks like shit if you leave it but it's there for a reason so i left mine. I took it off in the area of the rear rear seat hold downs (2 door), because it looked like a 2 year old did it in that spot. The monstaliner was thick enough to hide the seam and look very nice.

What are you talking about? A seam sealant or a bedliner?

Don't understand how moisture would get under it, as it is sealed very well. I will prolly just line over it. If uv never seen the outcome of a granaded clutch...it ain't pretty! Of course, this has 400 less hp than my Goat did.

The previous models didn't have it at all, it's only there to add a layer of air to insulate a bit more from heat and noise. I wouldn't worry about a clutch or driveshaft shattering and going through a Jeep.

Sorry, seam sealant. I'd like to reseal it and then re-bedline those areas.

3m body seam sealant is the only thjng id bother with and i believe its what the oems use. 30 bucks for a tube, gotta use a caulk gun and its hard to make it look original.

If its what OEMS use, its definitely not what I want. It was the factory stuff that turned all melty.
I'm stumped gentlemen
