I'd be concerned with the added weight.

I read that a lot before deciding to do mine...here is what i found out: Linex is only .7 pounds per square feet at 1/8 inch. I was crunching the numbers the other day ( ill have to find them) but the weight wasn't as big of a deal as most think. Hope that helps

Worked at a Line-X shop. Average truck bed adds about 70 lbs of weight. I believe a Jeep inside and out is around 200 lbs. Can't remember the numbers for sure though.

The thing about Line-x vs Roll on liners is the quantity. DIY liners use maybe 2 or 3 gallons in your tub/bed while we use 20 IIRC. (Again might be a little off on the exact number but its around there.)

Really there is no comparison, you get what you pay for. Waiting 24 hours for something to cure is ridiculous. That leaves way too much time for stuff to run and look like crap. Line-X is sprayed hot and drys instantly so it conforms to every contour perfectly. You get a nice even coat that way too.

I DIY everything except bedliner and gears. You just can't do as good of a job in your garage.

I'm with ya on the "you get what you pay for." I say if you can afford to have someone do it than do it, if not, no worries, just take your time, grab a few buddies and do your best. After all, I'll never rag on ya for what you do to your jeep, only give you a hard time when you get stuck Just kidding..maybe.

Waiting for warmer weather or find a garage to do mine. I was wondering, for those who have done the Monstaliner, What did you do about the hooks in the bed of the jeep? paint over them or tape them up? I also have a question about the drain plugs, Any one find a set for sale online?

No offense but your door and hood dont match worth a crap, this is why i would only do black line- x on the outside.

It's the sun I double checked that after I took the pic this morning. It matches.

I tried doing something similar to an older truck i had before i got my jeep. All the lower trim on a mazda b3000 (2000 model) when i had the box done with rhyno lining. Everything turned out good except for one rear wheel well area and had to get it redone. Paid 500$ cash for the entire job and warranty included. Still holding up 5 years later and had re-lined before selling as some hairline cracks where started but that was because the original rhyno guys used too thin of mixture hence tapping in my warranty.

Thanks! No at all, we are all her to help each other, prices included. It cost me 1800 for the inside (all black) and to color match the khaki on the exterior. They also clear coated the exterior to protect from fading.

They generally dont sandblast prior to line-x. They use a bristle type brush on a buffer/ grinder to prep the paint.

Nope..

If the paint is in good shape then 80grit sandpaper is more then adequate. If there is rust and peeling paint then a 36grit sanding pad on an angle grinder is used.

Sandblasting is not really needed unless you have rust with Linex. I'd definitely would have wanted it stripped if I went with paint though. I just had scratches...a lot of then lol

They dont??? They make brushes specific for that purpose. And if you think they sand the whole surface your crazy

Cool, well ive peeled off plenty of line-x'd bed caps that the edge was just hit with a 80 grit pad. Those red brushes work pretty good tho

The exterior is smoother than the interior due to the clear coat...tried to get a close pic for you. If you look at my hood that gives a pretty good representation of what the rest of the body is like...the tops of the fenders are a bit rougher for some reason.

Thanks man, appreciate the pics and insight. For years i wanted to do this because paint is my worse enemy. I do my own cosmetic body work when i can but im getting older and its more and more time consuming. Have you washed it yet? And if so was it more difficult even with the clear coat? Depending on the type of soap, i had issues with the rhyno lined box when i owned my old truck, leaving residues ect...

No problem, just glad to help. I had a hard time finding any real info when I was searching, so it's the least I can do. I haven't washed it, but the exteriors relatively smooth, almost like smoothed out bumps as opposed to jagged spikes or pits. The clear coat made it much smoother. The inside tub is pretty rough and I can imagine that would be harder. So with that, I'd not see any issues with washing it. You'd probably want to use a brush and harder spray. I do know that trying to dry it with a cloth is a PITA...it rained the first night, so I tried wiping the water off the hood for pictures..and ended up "dabbing" it to death instead of "wiping." Cloth doesn't slide over it like if it where paint.

I may wait a few years before going your direction as the only lineX shop is about 2.5 hours away and would require an overnight stay. Plus money is abit tight and doubt i could score your deal (damn cheap Canadians lol).
