Question Dog friendly bedliner for interior tub?

My Jeep was recently in the shop and a significant quantity of gear oil was spilled on the carpet. Tried cleaning the carpet multiple times, but decided that the carpet is not salvageable due to the sulfur smell. Rather than replace the carpet, I've decided to bedline the interior tub as its cheaper than new carpet and easier to clean up dog hair. This brings me to my question - what is the best liner in terms of having a smooth texture, making it comfortable for the pups' paws and easy to clean dog hair out of? I've read many of the threads regarding bedliner on the forum but can't seem to come to a consensus. I have no preference between having it professionally done or doing it myself as I am being reimbursed the cost of new carpet, which will more than cover a professional job. What do you guys think? Thanks!

How much is a new carpet? My dog used to ride in the bed of my dad's truck and that was linex'ed. It's a smoother bedliner which is nice. Trucks and jeeps generally run about $600 thru them.

Don't get Herculiner. If you get the UV treatment it lasts and is good, but its definitely very abrasive if you're worrying about your dog. Upol raptorliner is a pretty good one that isn't too abrasive.

You might try one of these from Duluth Trading Company. They are really durable. Cost from their catalog is $44.50. Wife has one and it is nice.

From what I've found, new carpet is $600-$1000 depending on which pieces are still usable. In either case, a liner would either be cheaper or a wash.

I was thinking about the dog hammock, but I have a two door and wasn't sure how they'd get in.

That's expensive. I'd do the bedliner and get it professionally done. Linex can color match to your jeep of you'd like that and it has a pretty good warranty. I'd get a quote from them and see what the shop will pay. The only benefit to doing it yourself would be pocketing some money, but the shops do an excellent job

The dog seat cover does not hang above the seat, it sits on the seat. The cover just keeps the dog from falling on the floor if it's on the seat.

I took the rear seat out and have a king size comforter folded up back there. It looks comfy.

LineX works great and has enough traction to allow the dog to get solid footing into or out of the vehicle. If it is too smooth, they can lose footing and injure themselves.

You might want to post in the wanted classified about a carpet. I bedlined my JKU this spring and listed my carpets 'for sale' to get rid of them. I 'sold' all my carpets for $70 shipped - most of the money went right to shipping, I think I broke even with a few dollars to spare in the end. I'd also check Craigslist.

I bedlined mine with Gatorhyde, if the dogs go with me I throw a $5 blanket in the back for them anyhow.

Don't forget about heat.

I would assume you'd want some kind of barrier between the liner and the dog, unless spray in liner has better insulation properties than I think it does.

I use a moving blanket for my dog to lay on. I buy the higher grade ones from Ratchet Straps, Tie Down Straps, E Track Tie Downs, Cargo Straps - U.S. Cargo Control and they have multiple uses for all sorts of things.

Monstaliner has held up to everything I've thrown at it in my Jeep for the past several years. That includes my 80 pound black lab riding and he likes to put his front paws on the wheel wells. The good thing about the Mostaliner is you can control the texture when you apply it!

Decided to linex it; best decision I've ever made.

I pulled the carpet in mine because yellow lab hair cleaning and long dry times and was trying to figure out what to do. I had a can of Duplicolor undercoating laying around so I taped off the front drivers foot well and put down a thick layer to try it out. The stuff has great coverage and it's kind of rubbery versus the abbrasive bed liner (which I've used for my bumper and rock rails). It looks fantastic and now my quadratec mats don't slide around at all. I'll give it a few weeks to test for wear, but so far I'm really happy and I think I'll end up doing the whole pan.

My biggest concern with having it sprayed was the texture. I was afraid it would be too rough for the dogs. I was happy to find out that the Linex texture isn't very abrasive. I also had the UV protection coat, which smoothed it out also. Very happy with the results!
