Bed Liner Recommendations

Ok, I'm looking at bed lining the inside of my Jeep, probably this weekend. Just wondering what brands people on here have used and how happy you are with them. Pics would be great too!

Hurculiner, Hurculiner, Hurculiner! It's amazing, dude. It's a little bit of work, but wonderful. If you decide to go with it, PM me and I'll go into much greater detail!

I just used Rustoleum's brush-on bed liner this weekend - not for the interior, but on the front fenders, rockers, and rear corners.

I sanded and primed the fenders and the rear corners first. The rockers got sanded, but no primer.

The stuff goes on really easy - I used a small roller, and a painting sponge for the corners and tight spots. We'll see how it holds up, but I read all kinds of positive reviews before I decided to use it.

I've been wanting to ask the same question, but I'm more curious of the durability of spray cans of duplicolor and rustolium in the tub. Mine is a DD so I have limited time to do the job.

Thanks for the recommendations! The parts store near me has a kit by Dupont if I remember right. I might order some Herculiner tomorrow though, since I've heard nothing but good things about it. I'll post pics if I do it this weekend.

It's only been on for two days - I'll let you know in a few months!!

I did my best to prep well - sanded, primed, sanded, and primed again. I'm hoping it will be a little durable. If I just have to touch up next summer I'll be extremely satisfied. I read lots and lots of good stuff about it beforehand.

I can only speak to Monstaliner as far as the texture and ease of application. I choose it because it had a smoother surface than others and was a rollon kit. I didn't want anything that was too rough and I didn't want to have to rent a compressor and mask off the entire Jeep and driveway. So far, I like it. It's smooth so it doesn't scrape and cleans easy. It's supposed to be UV stable which was also important to me (it shouldn't fade).

For any kit that you get, it's all in the prep as far as how well it'll hold up from peeling. You have to really clean and degrease well and you have to take the shine off of any surface that you are applying to. The process I used was:
  1. Clean (Dawn dish detergent)
  2. De-grease (MEK or Acetone)
  3. Sand (I bought additional, rougher pads at Lowe's)
  4. Clean
  5. De-grease
  6. Apply

I went with Monstaliner a year ago. It's amazing. Prep IS everything. As far as the UV properties go, my Jeep doesn't have a top and sits in the driveway in Virginia in the summer (where the sun is really strong). I haven't had any issues with fading.

I probably put a good 8 hours into prep over two days including removing everything I could and the rollon took another 2 hours. Then about 2 hours to put it all back together.

I used Duplicolor truck bed coating on the front and rear floor, it looks like the Monstaliner in terms of texture and shine. A friend gave me a partially used quart of Duplicolor Bed Armor (the one with the rubber/kevlar bits in it) and I put that down on the bed underneath the rear seat. Two different textures, but my dog LOVES the non-skid texture, and doesn't slide around.

The Bed Armor is water based, easy to clean up, and NO fumes for application; LOTS of texture. The Truck bed coating is smelly, but went on easily, dried quickly, has a little shine and seems to be pretty durable. I would personally recommend either. As mentioned above, PREP is the key. Sand, wash, degrease, double check the sanding, (repeat if necessary) apply bedliner. Took me two days.

Monstaliner here as well. Holding up fantastically for over a month now with dogs, crates and the sun. Prep work sucked but youll have to do that with any of the liners. The texture is non abrasive unlike most of the competitors.

About 8 or so hours over a couple of days. Then the next day (3 day weekend), we did the rolling over about 3-4 hours (I put on several coats).

I then let it sit for a week in the garage, where it was humid and warm (great for the curing process). I also spritzed it with water, per magnetman's recommendation to help the process along.

I have another vehicle, so I decided to take my time with this point to let it take its time in curing.

Putting it all back together took about 3 hours as I had my stereo/amp wiring to redo (had been hidden under the carpet). But I'm slow and was taking my time.

Nice to see a decent review of the ROLL ON rustoleum liner, every time I see it brought up, everyone just bash's the spray can version. Thanks for posting pics of the the product after application. Personally I think it is the best looking bed liner I have seen used on the exterior.

OK, after checking out the Monstaliner, I think I'm going to go with that. I see they have 1 and 2 gallon kits. Will 1 gallon be enough, or should I get 2? I'd hate to run out halfway through

One gallon did my entire interior with 2 coats on the sides and 3 on the floorboards. You'll want one roller per coat.

I used duplicolor bedliner and I would not rwcommend it. I painted my bumper with it went the whole nine yards and stepped on it with work boots it rubbed right off after a couple days of being dry

Looked at a bunch of DIY bedliners through the forums, and after consulting with my local line-x dealer who I deal with on a daily basis here at my dealership, I decided to have it professionally done. Best decision I've ever made. I'm all about doing my own work, but this is a job you should just pay a line-x dealer to complete the work.

I can only speak on Raptor Liner and so far so good. I wen't with it, instead of Monster Liner because I wanted to match the color of my Jeep instead of just black and at the time (and maybe still) you couldn't paint match with it.

I will reiterate above that it is ALL about prep....Good Luck.

This is one of the better DIY installs I have seen. Looks nearly proffesional!

Thanks brother, it definitely took a good amount of time, a lot more than I had planned. Here are a couple of hints that I learned through doing it, may not be applicable for all.

1. Don't do it in the winter, unless you can climate control the jeep for curing. (I made this mistake)
2. Do it outside if possible, around nothing (if your spraying) there will be overspray. Also, I would suggest a full body suit (cheapy at Lowe's/Home Depot), good gloves, good breathing mask, and goggles.
3. Use ear plugs and golf tees tees to plug your open and threaded holes before spraying.
4. Prep...prep...prep....prep.
