i have done herculiner on my last jeep and the duplicolor on my current jeep, both are good products but the herculiner was better being an oil base it sticks better and doesnt dig as easy. The duplicolor was WAAAAY easier to clean up after and came off my skin that day instead of a month later, but it took about 2 weeks for the jeep to fully cure.

I used herculiner inside my tj. It worked great and has a nice texture. I plan on doing the inside of my cj this spring. Regardless of which brand you go with, you have to do a foot job propping it it it won't hold up; which is not the fault of the product. I would strongly recommend herculiner.

Mine was sprayed. I do love the texture, it doesn't eat you if you rub against it, but not slippery either...
Here's a little closer pic...

How do you control the over spray or is that a problem?

Line-X

I had an 84 YJ interior done with Line-X (charcoal) and after a few months it seemed to have a green tint to it...That was in (approx) 1999.

If you like muddin I wouldn't recomend the rough gritty stuff. I have a GMC jimmy that the previous owner covered the whole inside with some bedliner. It is very rough and scratchy. It is really bad about mud. Even if you spray the mud out with a hose it still leaves an orange shadow in the grit. Especially on the drivers side floor pan from getting in and out with muddy feet. I would love to be able to strip the stuff that I wound up with and replace it with rhino liner.

One nice thing about rolling in is that you don't have to cover everything else in plastic. I just used painter's tape to make the line between what is covered with the liner and what isn't.

Their new stuff, Xtra, won't do that.

I've used Line-X and Herculiner, and have been fairly pleased with both. If money was no option, I'd probably go with Line-X. I had it in my truck, as well as most of my family, and it has always looked great even years later. And it doesn't hold dirt like the Herc does. The Herc definitely isn't the best looking, but it does the job. That said, I've heard good things about the raptor lining, so I'm thinking of doing the inside of my Jeep with that when it gets a bit warmer out.

Three words, (1) aircraft (2) erosion (3) coating

Nothing like linex or hurculiner, all it is, is a really really thick black enamel paint, that lasts forever. If ya go to the local professional paint store and ask for it and they don't sell it get rustolium black enamel and paint it in three good thick coats.
Before my hard drive died I had pictures of mine after doing that, their on here somewhere, but it looks good.

Wanted to chime in about Line X. I was noticing that my uncles truck has a line x spray in bed liner and it was in very poor shape. It looked to be done very half assed. Lots of overspray and thats hard to believe being that it was done "professionally". Lots of chips and chunks of the liner missing. The color and texture was great but overall very subpar. Maybe it was just because of the shop it came out of in Raleigh, Nc or it speaks of the quality of line x, just my 2 cents.

Sounds more like Rhino than LINE-X, got any pics?

liner kit is a 2-component urethane system designed for applying directly to your Jeep tub, inner fenders, under body, and chassis. Dries rapidly and protects against rust, corrosion, UV damage, and extreme temperatures while resisting stains and abrasion. Waterproof material stays flexible and helps to reduce road noise and vibration. Raptor by U-Pol. I just bought this kit online $100.00 I'll let you know how it works..

Then I did my powder coated peeling rocker guards and they are still holding up without rust. Also a strip on the hood.




The main thing is - now I pull the plugs and with the Bestop seatcovers on I really don't worry about rain anymore. Oh and the Dirty Mudder Column Cover helps too. (free plug) PM Inferno Girl today to get yours!
looks nice

Here is my hard top. Been painted for 3 years and no fade or peel and I had it done in a semi gloss look....[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]
Don't mind the dirty look of it...it was in storage all summer and this was taking it out to get it ready to hook up the plow for winter, so that is just dust all over the top itself.
it looks like it was suppose to be like that.

Nice roof emblem. I would have already line xed my flares, hardtop, mirrors, door handles, and tub if it was not so damn expensive.

I guess there are lots of ways to look at it. I have the technical data sheets from Rhino and LINE-X. LINE-X is WAY stronger than Rhino Tuff Grip, Hardline, and the old Tuff Stuff.

Specifically, LINE-X has a 31% higher tear strength, 53% higher tensile strength, and a 45 degree higher temperature tolerance than Rhino Tuff Grip and Hardline. Also, that's comparing numbers of the same ASTM test method.

Oh well....

I suppose it's more expensive because:
1. Your paying someone to do the job.
2. Your getting a thicker and more durable coating.

I'm guessing that Raptor and the other DIY stuff is only going to be...maybe less than 40 mils. Professional products are going to be...maybe 70 to 90 mils. Heavy use areas get about 125 mils.

Here's a formula you can use to figure volume, thickness etc. Note that 125 mils is 1/8" and a dime is about 40 mils. Also, you have to look at the product's MSDS or technical data sheet to see what percentage solids it is. For example, if you buy one gallon of product and the product is 70% solids and 30% solvents, then only 70% of the product ends up on your Jeep, the solvents evaporate away.

Square feet x mils / 1604 = gallons of product (solids only)

I used the herc. also seems to be a little more rubbery then line x.
as far as the grit i wanted it to be that way and am glad I did in the winter it helps
with traction on the floors

NO WAY! are you serious? it would take approx 1604 Gal (solids) to do the tub of the Jeep?

you gotta plug the square footage in and if you have 30 square feet (just randomly throwing it out there) times it by 100 (or 125 or however many mills you want) so 3000 divide by 1604 so a little less than 2 gallons you would need. I think that seems right...it's early
