protecting the underside


I just bought a 06 wrangler LJ and was thinking about doing some kind of painting or undercoating underneath and in the wheel wells to help protect things a little bit.

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestion on what they best thing to do. I was thinking about just the rubberized undercoating but was not for sure whats the best thing to do.

Any suggestions would be appreciated

I've heard the rubberized stuff needs reapplied every couple of years...if you have a Ziebart near you, they do undercoating I believe and guarantee it for quite a while. It's not cheap though. If you're mainly looking for rust protection...check out POR-15 (or one of it's cheaper "generic" equivalents).

Paint on truck bedliner, Napa, Autozone, etc.-cheaper to buy it from a local auto parts store than to order it and pay freight. Will be $65-$75 for a gallon of it. Had the entire interior of my 03 rubicon done in January, took a couple months in the winter before the smell went away. It DOES dry, isn't soft-but has great anti-slip feature. I have another gallon to do the YJ with sometime this summer if it would stop raining when I have a day off to do it!

Ight. Thanks. I used the rubberized stff on my last car. And it seemed nice when I first put it on but once it got dirty it seemed impossible to clean.

So I think Im going to go with the spray on truck liner. Unless anyone has any better opinions. Thanks for the advice.
