Rhino lining

Everytime it rains my rugs and floor get wet. So I want to rhino line it. Is this a good idea? And does anyone have any pictures?

I have seen several pics of this and I like it. I hear it is a pain to clean though. I am looking at LizardSkin for the mad heat that comes though the floor.

I used Monstaliner. I is not nearly as rough as herculiner and Rhino-liner. I've see Herc and will say it feels like sandpaper. But I haven't seen Rhino first hand.

The Monstaliner is textured, but smooth enough that it cleans up REALLY easily and really well.

Here's a pic of the texturing of it.





And a few more general pics.



I chose black because my TJ is a black/green style, but Monstaliner does offer a LOT of different colors now. If you look in the Vendor section on Jeep Forum, you will find a thread that details it. The vendor is on that forum and has EXCELLENT support.

Now for the spray vs roll on debate. I rolled it for a few reasons:
1. I had no air compressor system.
2. I didn't have a spray gun.
3. I wanted to do this on a budget so 1 & 2 ruled that out.
4. I didn't want to worry about overspray. Simple painter's tape did the job just fine.
5. My entire family helped me prep it and roll it on. So it was a fun way to have family time and get something done.

Key to ANY install is going to be the prep work. Screw that up and the stuff won't hold very well. The JF Monstaliner thread covers it VERY well, along with a few writeup threads (I believe I have one on here myself).

Does it help with heat transfer form the engine bay?

I coated with Monstaliner and it's great! A little heat on the floor board but I hardly notice it. The texture makes it easy to clean.

Used herculiner for mine, worked out great. The one thing i might do differenly is use Monstaliner since it isn't as rough.

i used Black rhino liner on mine and it looks great, ill take some pics in the next day or so...

Surprisingly easy to clean, i just use a shop Vac, then use armor all all purpose wipes to get the excess dirt and such out.

Hey deepsaltwater, what color did you use there? I've got a white tj just like yours and was thinking about doing this, but I'm still in the initial stages and just getting some ideas for now. Yours looks pretty good!

Hey there,
Thanks! I used the color Desert Sand. Stays cooler than black. This Monstaliner exceeded my expectations. Have fun with the install!

Just finished monstaliner last night, rolled it on. Used lady in red which matched flame red perfectly. Went on easy, prep work sucks but it worth it for a quality job.

Rustoleum spray in bedliner here. Great color, easy to clean and has a nice texture feel to it.

Do you have any info on how you did your tailgate like that? I've been wanting to do that myself. Looks good

Lizard Skin sound deadner and ceramic heat shield looks pretty sweet to me. All these pics are awesome guys, great job and good info. I have the Flame Red also so that Monstaliner looks like a perfect match.

You dont really have to take the wiring out just move it out of the way.

As far as prep I followed Monstaliner's instructions. MEK, sand/scuff, MEK, tape, coat.
