I've got mine done as well. Although it was done when I got it. I like the look. I like when I'm on the trail I'm not worried about getting scratched as some do. And the obvious rust protection is great. I do wonder about the durability though. And this could be a product of the way this guy put it on I don't know, but I was against a small tree the other day...not hard enough to dent my rocker panel...but enough to scrape the under coating off. Now I've got to figure out how to match it up!

My entire rig is linexed. When I get another jeep I am doing the exact same thing. It's personal preference, but for me, I absolutely love it. Ease of care, no rust worry, no scratches. The look for me is great too (if done right mind you). Only other opinion I have is listen to guys who have it done. If you have specific questions, let me know. I'd be happy to answer based on my experience.

Can't really see the clear coat, it blends right in. Took about 1-2 cans per side to get it completely embedded.

That sounds about right. I think the tub was going to be 500 or 600...

I went redneck style and used 4 cans of aerosol bedliner by Duplicolor to do my exterior.
Been over a year and I still love it. Before, I had scratches all over my black Jeep so anything was an improvement. It's not as thick and rough as but it's tough.
I plan to use roll on bedliner on it one day but I'm in no rush.

$1800. Dang that's cheap. I was quoted yesterday $3200 for just the outside. Are linex shops independently owned? That would explain the huge difference in price.
