Jeepers with Linex

Hi~ I am contemplating on getting my jeep tub linex and would like to get some feedback from fellow jeepers who has their done.

Does it lower or increase the temp on the floor board without the carpet? Does it insulate road noise noticeably? Ease of cleaning? Did you removed the roll bar before the linex? How much did you paid for it?

Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

I didn't do Line-X - too pricey - but did do Monstaliner. The floor does seem a bit warmer w/o the carpet and insulation underneath. Nothing major, and in fact, is nice on a cool or cold wet day (you never have those in SF do ya?).

Road noise? I'm doors off most of the time, so noise isn't a worry for me, but it is a bit louder.

Left the cage in and lined up part of it. I have a thread here about my install. It cost about $125 through a thread over on Jeepforum.

Thanks for your feedback. I wonder the thickness between them two.

standard application vs. standard application - Line-X is going to be much thicker at ~175 mils vs Monstaliner ~40 mils

standard application (black) vs. standard application (black) - Line-X is going to be much more expensive at ~$700 vs. Monstaliner ~$135 + your labor

Saw the Linex application last weekend at the Jeep show in PA and was very impressed as to the overall finish and look.

I did the DIY herculiner in my YJ, It is harder to clean, hotter to the touch if left in the sun(black). Road noise, I didn't notice much change, but the top was always off.

We carry passengers alot, and they hated rubbing against and leaning on the liner on the rear fenderwells, so the carpet went back in.

That is my 2 cents

I did the DIY rattle can liner from Advance Auto (duplicolor I think). I did a lot of prep and 3 "thin" layers. I was very happy with the finished product and so far no complaints. I put some heavy rubber floor mats in front and back and that seems to keep the heat off our feet pretty well.

At Line-X we don't remove the roll bars but we remove the roll bar padding and seat belts. We remove the doors, top and everything from inside the tub. It does cut down on road noise a little, if you have a soft top it won't be that drastic. I'm not to sure about the heat. I know it won't make it worse. Line-X is real easy to clean. As for the price, it all depends what your local Line-X dealer charges. We charge $600 for the tub. And just so you know it will take a few days. So make sure you have another ride.

My truck bed is Line-X and my Jeep tub is Monstaliner. Very different. I like the Monstaliner, but it is pretty smooth so I find my feet slipping all over the place when driving, so I had to put a mat down. If it was Line-X, you definitely would not need a floor mat.

If they have $600 in the budget for it.

Line-X was a serious option for me, but the local shop wanted closer to $700 and that is with ME removing pretty much everything before hand. No thanks.

My Monstaliner has held up very well since I put it in a few years ago and is crazy easy to clean. Bit of Simple Green and some water from the hose and I'm good to go. Wipes off easily.

I worked at a bed liner company in Hawaii and Sprayed mine when I was there. I notice that it does increase the temp of the floor as you do not have cloth material seperating the metal from your feet. But with that being said.. I LOVE MY JEEP now that it has the bedlining in it. I have thrown deer in the back, my muddy dog, dead ducks, Firewood ect. I use my jeep just like I would a truck now.. Whenever it gets dirty.. A water hose and scrub brush and all clean..

As for any do it yourself applications.. I'm not sure. All Id tell you if you do it yourself.. PREP, PREP, PREP, PREP, PREP and more PREP.. You want to make sure the surface that you are applying it to will not have any issues after applying it. I would either get a plastic brush for your drill and scuff up the tub really well.. Then clean with rubbing alchol.. Making sure to clean it really well.. That will ensure you do not have any spots where you may encounter any issues.. As for thickness.. It doesn't matter. it's not a truck where you are throwing wood, rock or any other hard things in it that could damage the bedlining..

If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me a message. I sprayed bedliners as the shop manager for awhile in Hawaii..

Thanks,

RDM
