Benefits of a bedliner in your Jeep

Hey all, I've been reading up on the bedliner threads and decided that I'd like to get it done. Even though most people do it themselves I've decided to have a shop do mine professionally. Reason for this being a good price ($350) and a great reccomendation from a fellow Jeeper on Wrangler Forum (and a close proximity). The shops website: truck bed liners; truck bed; jeep tubs; 4 wheelers; rocker chip gaurd. Anyways, I digress. I'd like to hear from people that have had it done; what they like and what they dislike. Is it really worth it?

I did mine myself with Monstaliner a few months ago. It was kind of a pain, but very well worth it. I will never go back to carpet. It's easy to clean, it won't fade, and when (not if) it gets wet, I can either towel dry it or let it air dry and nothing gets musty and moldy. I can make it look brand new with a bottle of simple green and some rags. Try making carpet look new after awhile. I get compliments about the looks of it all the time. Finally, for those concerned about noise and heat- neither are an issue. It isn't noticeably louder than when I had carpet. I've also driven 6.5 hours in it nonstop (well, except for gas obviously, lol) and while the floor does get pretty warm around the exhaust area, the liner holds up fine and it isn't so hot that it would burn you.

Do it- you won't regret it. I don't know why Jeeps don't come stock that way, but in a way I'm glad because I absolutely love the Monstaliner that I put in. Can't say enough good things about it.

I hated the carpet - i ripped it out right away. My jeep - for better or worse - got rained on a ton - and it still rocks out. Kinda rotted the seats away - but I've got new ones! The carpet smells bad - holds all types of dirt and bacteria.

On the other hand no bedliner and I was faced with a really nasty scratched floor pans and floor bed - I put a lot of equipment in the back - and who knows what happened to the front.

Before

after!
'

Oh yeah - now it doesnt get scratched - dirt comes off with a hose down easy - looks great - like a vampires skin from Twilight in the sun - and the jeep is lighter and easier to take care of.

Whats not to like?

Heculined mine a few weeks ago and have nothing negative to say.
Looks-it looks cool and mean, lots of compliments from pepole
Uses-After it rains windows dont fog from heat and humidity, doesnt smell and do not have to worry about mold or mildew. After a rain it all drains rather quickly and you never knew water was in it. After mudding I drag a hose thru the front and hose out the back then close it up, all is good.
You will not regret it, it looks great and is just so easy to maintain. I also thru some on those chrome headlight inserts, looks cool, and not a huge fan of chrome anyways.
Good luck.

I'm wanting to do this to mine also but I don't wanna get something that is just gonna fade or peel up. I am considering Duplicolors Bed Armor. Has anyone had any experience with this? I seen Stacy use it the other day on Gearz and it looked pretty cool

What about just using rhino liner? Although I haven't had it done myself (contemplating new carpet) I did get a price of $199 and I have seen the after on truck beds and it's amazing.

2010 Jk Sport Rhino Liner

I just had my JK Rhino Liner installed last week. I had to strip it down , and then bring it to the Installer in Stuart , Fl. It cost 500.00. But i love the result and living here in the Sunshine State I run with a Spidertop most of the time, which means I have been caught in a few rain storms, but with the bedliner , just pull the floor plugs and let mother nature wash your floors.

See I would get a rhino liner but my brother got one and it faded bad! Also in a corner it is peeling. He uses the bed quite a bit and I don't wanna have that in my jeep

Thanks guys, Im tryin to make my Jeep as rain proof as possible seeing as in the 5 months I've had it; its been soaked twice. Both times I had to go through the hassle of removing the carpet and cleaning the tub. Off topic: I'm also thinking about putting marine grade speakers and head unit in my Jeep. Has anyone one of you done this? PS I also know that the steering wheel needs to be covered while in rain.

Prep work is key, the person who did the prep work apparently didn't do a great job. (as far as the peeling goes).

On the fading - UV stability has improved over the last few years for most products, but its a good thing to look into if you are going to do this mod.
