Best way to remove bedliner?

Was looking to monstaline my tub and started looking under the carpet to see just how much work I was looking at and glad I did. Seems the previous owner tried to do it himself and failed miserably. He either used a bad brand or didn't prep it. Looks like he quit halfway through and just covered it up. Here are some picks. I still plan on lining it, but now don't know to get all his mess off so that I can prep it. Some spots are just a big pile of gunk. Any ideas how I can remove those clumps or can it come off?

Im using stuff called aircraft remover in a quart can to remove properly applied rhino-liner. Yes it does work but it does require lots of scraping for you. Since that stuff was not done right....it may just lift off easy.
Got mine at oreillys...about $13 a quart

How are you using it, pouring some on it and letting it sit a while and then scraping?

That doesn't look like it's done from a previous owner. That's the way they come from the factory. I don't know what the stuff is called, but Jeep seals all the seams with that coating/sealant stuff.

Here's a pic of my 97 Wrangler. I just painted the tub Khaki, and you can see in the seams, I have the same kind of coating that was like that from the factory

poured it in a tin can and put on with brush. let set about 30 minutes then scrape it off. might take a couple applications to actually strip it down to bare metal....mine did

Thats factory body schultz. Dont remove it. Just scuff it with some red scotch brite for adhesion.

Dont use stripper unless you plan to remove all the paint in that area down to bare steel and then neutralize the area with water

The part that is lined doesn't look bad: I would clean it, then try a little of whatever new bedliner you are going to use on a small, out of the way area and see if it adheres ok. Shouldn't have to remove it altogether. The bare metal, just scuff it and line it.
