x2 Only regret is touch ups needed occasionally--usually after hauling bricks patio blocks or heavy metal.

I did put a small rug under center console by the shifter for looks and heat.

As other people will tell you prep is the key--my opinion -- take 3 days and use one day for prep/one day for application and drying/one day to reassemble.

Could do it in 2 days but feel the 3day thing would give better results.

You should look at Monsta liner. www. monstaliner.com Or look at Upol raptor liner. Both are talked about quite a bit on the forum. I have used monsta and must say I am quite impressed with it. Both are DIY products.

Just curious, can a place like line-x spray the interior? Any idea on cost? It's probably out of your $200 budget but I'm curious now

Yes they can. And closer to $500-600. Varies by shop and how much work they gotta do (remove seats, prep area, etc)

Thanks appreciate it, I can remove the interior. I have just always heard good things about spray in vs roll in.

Where did you find true line-x for $600? I was quoted $1200 on my last jeep. I rhinolined it with great results

It's mainly all in the prep and patience, from what i've seen anyways... I like the upol raptor, my buddy spent half the money and used herculiner roll on and has good luck with it too though... be patient and clean the interior very well

Local spot. But that's with me doing all prep work (sanding, remove seats, etc)

I also worked for a GMC dealership that gave them a lot of business. Don't think he gave me a discount offer but could be wrong.

That was with me doing all the prep as well

Check and see if you have a "Armadillo Liner" dealer in your area. I had mine sprayed for just under $300, it comes with a lifetime warranty. I am very happy with the outcome. All I had to do is take everything out and they did all the prep work, it took under 4 hours and I was driving back home.

i did herculiner, got the stuff for 70 bucks, and i did it in a total time of 8 hours, but below the carpet was very muddy, due to mudding with no doors, so i had about half a paint can of the stuff so i did it for my friend, and it took me about 6 hours. its held up very well on both and looks great! id say get the roller herculiner stuff, and definitely do it yourself, shops charge way to much

A liner like Rhino or Line-X is in a totally different category to the DIY stuff like Monstaliner, Raptor, or Herculiner. If I had the cash, I'd probably do the Line-X just because it's been my favorite out of anything I've used. But seeing as how expensive that is, it's just not worth it for a Jeep tub (my opinion anyways; I don't think it sees enough abuse inside the tub to warrant that kind of liner).

I did Monstaliner in my TJ and it was very nice. I actually just picked up an "nused" '04 TJ and I'll be Monstalining it ASAP. It's very nice stuff that you can spray or roll on with great results. They have a great deal going on right now where you can get free shipping and a free quart of Chassis Saver (it's a paint chemically equivalent to POR-15, it's just much cheaper) when you buy the 1 gallon kit for your Jeep. You can get more details on Monstaliner over here:

Introducing MONSTALINER™ UV Permanent DIY Roll On Bed Liner - JeepForum.com

If you don't care for Monstaliner, I'd next go for Raptor. I don't have any personal experience with it, but many Jeep owners use it and are very happy with it. I've used Herculiner on a few projects in the past and long story short it isn't worth the money. It's very cheap but there is a reason for that.

Good luck!

Is that deal still good? He posted it in 2009 and it says the offer was for 1 month...

Haha, yeah it's still going on two years later. As long as the Jeep community continues to support Monstaliner/Magnet paints like it has it will continue. The product was designed with truck beds in mind, but once the vendor (Eric, or magnetman as he goes by over on JeepForum) heard about how Jeep owners put it in/on their tubs, he started offering it to us.

Since then we helped him get the 1 gallon kits specific for Jeeps, we've helped develop the colors that are out there now, and many other things. As a thanks, Magnetman continues to support us in any way possible, including giving us that great deal.

Awesome, good deal. I was planning to order some up this week, but now I need a muffler/cat-back... It will have to wait 1 more pay period!

I'm a newb as well. I just raptor lined my TJ and love it! It looks great and durable. Also made For a great sound barrier. It's a solid two day project. Prep is everything. Make sure to mask off and cover everything with plastic. Overspray will go everywhere. No regrets at all. The raptor kit comes with four cans of liner (which is more than enough for tub) and the air spray gun. About $100 for kit. Awesome product.

I used spray-lining(spray-lining.com) because they are cheaper and the best quality I have seen so far. It's a very easy application process and its a DIY spray-on bedliner. It came out just the way I wanted it and I controlled the type of finish I wanted (non-stick in my case). Cleanup is super easy now and I think its a good investment to keep your vehicle protected. I compared to a friend's Rhino liner, and even he had to admit that he would get the same bedliner I did if he was gonna do it again
