Monstaliner vs Herculiner

So I can get roll on Herculiner for 70 bucks in my town OR I can order monstaliner for 120. Is it honestly worth the extra 50 bucks plus the shipping plus the wait? Honest non biased opinions please. I don't wanna waste that extra money if I don't have to

Herculiner isn't UV stable and will break down over time. Monstaliner is UV stable and won't come off unless you dump a chemical paint remover on it. So in my opinion, yes unless you want little rubber but rolling around in your jeep when it starts to break down and wear out. Not to mention Herculiner is very course (I've heard) where as monstaliner is nicer to the skin.

Herculiner is terrible! I used in my YJ and I hated it. It is super rough and I could never get the sand out of the deep grit. It did go on easy though. The only reason I used it was it was the only bedliner I could get in a store that wasn't dupicolor or some other store name brand.

I would say spend the extra $50 dollars and get the Monstaliner. You will like it way more than Herculiner.

We use Hurculiner at work, it is worth the money. There is a uv resistant top cote for it. How coarse it goes on depends on how it is put on. You do not have to use the rollers that they sell for it, you can use a smother roller to get the texture that you want.

I used the Herculiner and I'm happy with it. So far it's holding up just fine. I agree it's somewhat difficult to clean but honestly I stopped caring about that some time ago already - as long as my seats and floor mats are clean, it's good enough for me

I have used both... If you really want it done right... Go down and pony up another $100 and have it shot with LineX or Rhino! If you do all the prep and masking you can get it done for $250-$300

IMO

I just rolled in monstaliner this Friday, and I already love it. It has a nice texture, not too rough, and it doesn't have rubber particles in it like herculiner. Also, monstaliner's customer service is fantastic, and you can find a coupon for a free quart of chassis saver paint and free shipping if you search it on jeepforum.

Alright thanks guys. I've been wanting to get monstaliner but I just wanted to see how the other stuff holds up but I guess I'll just save a little more and get some monstaliner hopefully within the next couple weeks!

In the process of lining my YJ. Thanks for everyone's input.
My 2 cents- I had some surface rust on the floor pans and corners. After I cleared the interior, sanded, scuffed and cleaned with oven cleaner, I used 3 coats of Coroseal. The stuff is amazing at converting surface rust.

I've lined a tub or two in my time, used Durabak for mine though. Monstaliner has the edge with all of the color options though. Less rough then the Durabak as well, but I didn't care about that: I put the carpet back over it for insulation and sound deadening. For prep, I used Xylene to clean it, then sanded the gloss off the paint. Took about 3 times going over it: Sand, then clean with Xylene, Sand, then clean with Xylene, etc. Once you get all the gloss off, and you have a "rough" surface, your ready to roll! And I did, roll it, that is! Didn't have a sprayer, or a place to do it safely. The rollon job came out awesome, cus the surface is rough anyway, and you could not tell I used a roller at all. Also used a small brush to 'dab' the liner into those tough-to-reach areas. That worked well, as well. I took a lot of pics, they are in a link in one of my posts here, somewhere. Do a search and you will find lots of bedlined tubs. One of the easier, but more useful "mods" you can do. If done right, it turns your tub into a giant bath tub! Never had a problem with it. Good luck, and take lots of pics!

Is a quart enough for a LJ frame?
