You thinks its so cheap to do and I paid too much? So be it. Its my money and im very happy paying what I did. Same as doing a truck bed? Do some research and look at the pics I previously posted.
Lol, no need to get so defensive. Nobody said you paid too much or didn't like it. You bought that thing from Starwood already done and I think you got an overall good deal regardless of how much they told you the Kevlar cost. I'm not sure why you bothered calling 3 LineX shops to get a quote on a Jeep that was already covered in bedliner, but for someone who already has a normal Jeep wanting to get their Jeep LineXed, $9000 and 2 weeks is a little high. You were the one plugging the product, I was just doing the research.
A do it yourself bedliner kit is less than $100. The expense in painting comes from extensive prep and color sanding, none of which is needed on a bedliner. No gloss or bubbles to worry about. Just tape, do a once over sanding, then spray. Should be done in less than a day. Clearcoat shouldn't be necessary since UV protection is already included in the bedliner and we're not going for gloss, but if we added that too, it should be much cheaper than any other vehicle. It's not like we're color sanding.
That being said I like the look and still think you got a good deal regardless of what you were individually quoted for the bedliner or how complicated Starwood claims their process is.
