Bedliner on the whole jeep

Hey friends,

I'm looking to bedline my whole jeep wrangler inside and out and I got a quote at $2,500. I didn't think it was a bad price. I wanted to see how your guys turned out and what you paid. Thank you!

That's NUTS! Check this out: Monstaliner do-it-yourself roll-on truck bed liner . Do it yourself for a LOT less. Who gave you that quote? They ripping you off bad!

You could Hurculiner it! Given enough time to dry and apply, it is a simple roll on or paint application. I would think several gallons would sufficient to do the job. The labor is free, you.

Just doing the tub usually costs $600-$800 (Line-X) so the whole vehicle should be closer to $2000. Get a few other quotes.

The quote seems a bit high but "ripping you off bad!" is a bit of an overstatement.

Only if you don't value your time. Not to mention the fact that any do-it-yourself liner doesn't compare to a professional two part spray in liner.

I've got the interior of mine done, it holds up well. It made the floor board a bit slippery for the cheap plastic floor mats I have, but that's pretty much my own fault.

Compare how? It's *paint*! Very tough paint! Specifically used, in my case, to seal the tub and prevent the notorious (and often inevitable) rusting out of the floorboards that Jeeps are known for. Paying that much money for some expensive "professional" application is a total waste. In the end: the "professional" version will protect the tub no better then the DIY version. Sometimes the DIY is better! Take a look on youtube for folks who had the expensive RhinoLiner sprayed on their vehicles...bunch of them complaining about how the stuff peels and cracks after less then a year! Jeepers do not typically use the stuff to protect their tubs from bomb blasts or something...it's to protect the tub from moisture. Proper application of the product is more important then anything else!

As for doing the outside of the Jeep...well...I was never a fan of it, but there *are* some nice examples on the link I recommended...mostly DIY with spray or brush. It *can* be done but...I guess you will have to research it and shop around. Good luck OP.

I am fixing to do my tub, but can't make up my mind between raptor liner, monstaliner or duplicolor with kevlar. Any suggestions from any of you who have either of these? The raptor liner kit comes with a spray gun while the others are roll on.

Total waste. Regular ol' spray paint will do that for ~$5.

That's your opinion. To someone else it's money well spent.

I recommend Line-X.

This would be true if all else was equal. But, of course, it's not.

I was thinking about doing the inside of my TJ and i think ive decided on monster liner. I got a quote from a linex dealer in Mobile, Alabama, and they said $650 for the complete inside of the Jeep. The monster liner kit is only $150 for DIY kit and for someone who has little money and a lot of time (teenager) i think I'll just do it myself and save the $500 dollars

Of course you do...Lot of Line-x fan boys on this site. Everybody has their favorite, it seems. Durabak or Monstaliner will do the exact same job for much less. With proper prep and application, it will last the life of the vehicle. And the *life* of the vehicle will be greatly extended by the proper application of same. Line-x (or Rhino, or Raptor or x, or x or x)is *not* going to do a better job then Durabak or Monsta....they will all protect the tub surface from rusting out. Either or are much tougher then just regular paint, giving the ability haul gear/junk without having to worry if it scratched or broke the integrity of the surface. I had Durabak on the tub of my 98 TJ for over 11 years and it never wore down or even got scratched all the way through. Tough as nails and did exactly what I wanted it to do. Why would I pay $$$ more for Line-x or whatever, when they will do the job no better? Your splitting hairs..........................

I would definitely shop around but $2500 for labor for the whole interior and exterior is probably pretty close price-wise for most shops. If you can afford it then go for it. DIY is the route that most members are used to doing so you will get much more support going this route, including myself. One weekend and $150 will take care of the interior. If I was going to bedline the exterior, I would spray the exterior with U-POL Raptor liner with 2-3 gallons on another weekend. Just borrow or buy a compressor and the Raptor liner kit comes with a gun already. I would think doing the exterior would be easier since there's not much to unbolt unlike the interior. Take the doors and hood off and spray individually. Take the top down, plastic bag the interior/engine bay, tape off the lighting/wheels and go for it. All(interior/exterior) can be done for less than $800. Kinda hard to screw up bedliner vs. regular 2 stage paint application wise unless if it was not prep correctly.

There's at least one Monstaliner fan boy in this thread.

Spray paint will do the same job of protecting against moisture as Monstaliner for ~$5.

LoL, if you want to dissect my assertions like a little kid, feel free. Way to exercise that Free Will! Look, Spray paint will not provide the protection that a bedliner will. Too thin and wears too easily. Paint will wear off from the heel of your shoe at the gas/brake pedals. Boom: Rust! Throw a lot of gear/junk in your tub and it will tear right through BOOM: Rust. Bedliner is a better choice for coating tubs, one that will take a lot of abuse without wearing off. That's the point: whether you choose between Line-x or DIY, your choosing something that (ostensibly)can take more abuse then just regular automotive paint. The OP is looking to do the outside, presumably so he doesn't have to worry so much about scratches from off road use. Bedliner, again whether it's Line-x or DIY, is tougher then paint or we wouldn't have to consider it in the first place....trying to convince the OP he should waste his money on your Line-x when he can get the same protection elsewhere, with another product is just fanboy B.S. There are an awful lot of folks pushing the most expensive options anytime this question comes up. But..the OP will have to decide that for himself. Search around DKaise4, and don't be swayed by marketing B.S. ....see what others have done and how it has worked out for them...I think you will be pleasantly surprised. End of transmission on my part.

You are the one trying to convince Monstafanboy.

I pushed spray paint instead of wasting money on Monstaliner.

OP,

Definitely do as was already said and shop around. There's pros and cons to anything. Mine is a syphon sprayed DIY with 3 coats and has held up fine. BUT, it doesn't have the benefit of a warranty and is nowhere near as thick as the Line X in my Truck. It protects sufficiently, looks decent and I'm confident that the tub is protected, but if I had to do it over and had about $600 to blow, I would have still done my own prep and trailered it to Line X.

I'm not endorsing either. Personal preference and want prevail. I'm sure it will turn out great and actually, I'd love to see the pics.

I did a CJ I used to own in my driveway, took a weekend and it came out pretty good, but, if I had the extra cash to have somebody else do it for me and save me a bunch of time and mess I wouldn't mind paying for it.

Regarding doing the outside of the Jeep I think it looks like crap, takes away form the value of the Jeep and would rather spend the money on some real protection like rearcorners and tubefenders.

Was wondering when you have it "lined" on the inside, is there any smell? Especially if you have a hard top on?

The smell lingered for almost 2 wks post Monstalining my interior but gone after that. IMO,the most useful mod for my Jeep. Rust protection, no more smelly carpet, easy water hose cleaning.
