Can i Bed line the inside of my jeep?

I want to bed line the inside because some how when it rains, water is coming in the front drivers and passengers floor pans. And the drivers side is pretty rusty, but it is only surface rust thank god... So i took a wire brush and steel wool to it and cleaned up all of the rust inside.
So my question, Can i use rattle can bed liner for the entire inside tub? And after words i am getting new carpet to go on top, because of loose wires.
Any Advice?

Absolutely you can have it lined, Line-X and RhinoLiner being the two favorites. The only problem is that some dealers for those two products refuse to do Jeep interiors due to the significant amount of extra work that needs to be done. The cheapest quote I found was $495 but that was years ago, several wanted $795 but clearly didn't want the job even for that much $$$.

So at the very least, you would likely have to strip everything out of the Jeep on your own and drive to the Line-X or RhinoLiner dealer with nothing but your seat in place, and then remove that once you get there.

I was going to do this for a while but the dealers kept quoting me outrageous pricing due to the added labor they claimed a Jeep interior requires.

You can always use a roll-on product like Herculiner and do it yourself. However, Herculiner, Duraliner, etc. are simply "tough" paints with ground up rubber particles added so they are not nearly as thick or heavy as a product like Herculiner or Line-X is. Those that go this way are invariably pleased with the end product which for only $100 or so is not a bad way to go.

There are tons of threads about people doing the same thing, you can look around and get some ideas. There's some with pics also.

I think you have to prep it first by sanding it down so the stuff will stick.


again, you'll have to research some of the threads and see how people did theirs and how it's holding up...

Fixed it for you

I think when I decide to line my jeep I will go with Monstaliner. I feel it is probably a better quality product than Herculiner since the liner is not just full of rubber particles. Personally I think it looks much closer to a professional spray on than herculiner...and it appears to have a less harsh texture.

ya i read a thread a couple of weeks ago on somebody monstalining there jeep and it came out great.
But i am not sure how to prep it, besides the usual sanding and steal wooling all of the rust spots and cleaning it out?
And should i get some primer paint and put that down first before i put the monstaliner down?

Thanks, yes I meant to say RhinoLiner. WF's sole flaw is that you can't go back into your own post to fix typos or brain farts unless you manage to catch it quickly enough. Hint-hint.

From what I remember, they sanded it down...but not to bare metal, just scuffing the surface. I think I also remember them wiping it down with a cleaner, then rolling the stuff on. Do a little more searching and Im sure somebody on here has done a pretty decent write up on it.
