If you're looking to do it yourself, I'd suggest Monstaliner. A quick Google search will land you on their website and if you search "Monstaliner full write up" you should be able to find the write up I used to help me do it.

Hope this helps!

Been searching all day about this, was about to make a thread. Sorry not trying to steal the thread, but what is the best bedliner that won't fade or peel to do the tub in? I read about raptor liner, monstaliner, line-x, ect.

Monstaliner is 100% UV resistant so it won't fade or crack with age. Proper prep is key to longevity.

You're not stealing the thread, just adding another dynamic to the same question

I don't know anything about Monstaliner, but I would go with Line-x over Rhino liner. I've had two pickups with Rhino liner and it faded bad plus a jug of gear oil fell over in one and it stained/discolored it. I've had three pickups with Line-x and don't have a single complaint. Both were installed by professionals. Also i like the texture of Line-x better. Just my $.02.

After you've stripped your interior tape off anything you don't want liner on. Use lots of tape. Use twice as much tape as you think you need, on second thought use three times as much as you think you need. Once the liner is on it is on for good.

Grab your sander and go to town. When you're done sanding, vacuum the dust and wipe it down. Make sure you get all of the paint and dust out. The instructions said to wipe with acetone but I don't think I did.

Before you apply the liner make sure you have everything you are going to need. Rollers, gloves, shop rags. Have spare rollers on hand for the second coat. Once you've started you don't want to stop until you are done.

I started in the front of the tub and worked my way to the back. I also started from the center and worked my way out to the sides. This way you don't paint yourself into a corner and don't have to reach over your finished product.

I was working nights and lived in town when I did mine so my garage hours were limited. The entire process took me three days. Day one I did the prep work. Day two I laid down the first layer. Day three I did the final layer. It took a day or two to dry to where I could drive it and it stunk for weeks.

Pros and Cons
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pro, the stuff is tough as I hoped.
Pro, it looks cool.
Pro, easy to hose off.
Pro, I applied it last summer and it still looks as new as the day 1.

Con, gets everywhere! I have a palm print on my hood. There are also a few spots where I painted outside of the lines a little. Did I mention to use lots and lots of tape.
Con, the smell lingered for a LONG time.
Con, dirt shows but does scrub out decent.
Con, you will end up lining tools boxes, lights, bumpers, grills, fender flares...

I used a gallon can of Herculiner to do the tub of my T.J. and had enough left over to do the tub of my Dad's CJ.

I used a can of Herculiner spray on some accessories and a can of Duplicolor spray. I didn't care for the later. It was soupy and chunky at the same time. It got everywhere. The spray was difficult to control and it wasn't as durable as I hoped.


BTW. Kern County?

I went with Monstaliner and can't recommend it enough! Lining the tub isn't the tough part; prepping is. How much you want to pull out is up to you; I pulled EVERYTHING. I had a trail cage welded in prior so I pulled the cage to paint it, pulled the seats, console, piece around the shifter, etc. Again, prepping is key! If you don't want to put time and effort into prepping then you risk smudging the entire project (liner may peel later down the road).

What I did was: scuff the areas where you are going to apply liner really good, vacuumed majority of dust out, rinsed tub with water hose, let it dry and then wiped down with MEK, and then applied Monstaliner. You can tape areas off any point (just be careful to keep a good tape line). I taped areas off first and just used a sponge to wipe area off instead of soaking it with the water hose.

It's a pretty big chore but it can be done by yourself but an extra set of hands goes a long way. You will be glad you did it once it's done; so much easier to keep clean.

Not sure if you can. Check their website and see what it says about getting it in Canada; if it's not on there, you could always give them a call and see what they say. Their website is www.mostaliner.com .
