Talking Rustoleum Bed Liner = Awesome

So after a long time of going carpet less due to not being able to afford a fancy bed liner I came Across Rustoleum. I saw it in Auto Zone for 9 bucks a can, so i bought 3 cans and got a solid two and a half coats with all under $30 I'm a happy jeeper. If you're having any second thoughts about using Rustoleum bed liner don't!

I just picked some up to fix my door hinges (alumn hinges on steel doors = corrosion) I'm glad you like it, I was a little nervous about it but feeling better now...

I used rattlecan bedliner, both Rustoleum and Duplicolor on my inner tub years ago and it's still holding up great.
Even the outside of my Jeep is 90% rattlecan bedliner, the other 10 in the next couple of days.

I had bheen using it on my frame in the wheel wells and my walmart was out once so i tried rustolium's spray on rubberized undercoating. the stuff is crap and just collected moisture underneath and make huge rust flakes. so make sure you get the bedliner and not the undercoating stuff. they are sold right next to each other.

Yeah good tip definitely don't use the undercoating good tip! I'll take pictures tomorrow, and if your going to buy it i recommend Auto Zone just because i picked them up for so cheap. I don't know what price other people sell them at though. When i was spraying the tub down i actually thought i did a pretty bad job but once it dried up it looked pretty solid so its super easy. MAKE SURE you do it outside though because the fumes are a lot stronger than normal spray paint it smelt something strong indeed!

I just finished spraying my bumpers and a couple other pieces. the Rustoleum is VERY forgiving which is nice. I paid $7 a can at wally world.

I love Rustoleum Bedliner.

I just redid my front bumper yesterday ( had Plasti-Dip which was GREAT until I bashed a rock)... and I picked up a set of 5 'ol' skool' Micky Thompson Classics (25 years old) for $125 that I refinished in bedliner. Even my stock rims are bedlined.

I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!

My 8 year old aluminum American Racing wheels are now black thanks to rustoleum bed liner. My bumpers and a few other things are in line for a coating too. The stuff is holding up great o. My wheels so far.

Walmart and Home Depot both sell it for $7.XX a can.

I used it on my trunk/sub enclosure. I used two cans and was not completely thrilled with it. It is holding up well and is doing the job of sealing the MDF, like I needed it to. However, it is not thick at all (duh, came ouf of a spray can) and does not really have much/any texture.

I think it would be great for bumpers or something though.

How easy would it be to to clean those type of roll on bed liners. I would think it would keep dirt and particles in more than smoother spray in bedliners.

With the Rustoleum it's actually not as rough as you think the way mine came out is somewhere in between the back of a pick up truck and the gritty tough kind you are thinking. My friend has had it on his jeep for a while and all the does is spay it down with a hose and washes right out.

Thanks, that as been my biggest concern over choosing which one to use. I don't want the inside looking all dirty because I can't even clean it without a lot of work.

Completely different product, but I wouldn't use the spray stuff over the Herc roll-on for an interior. For individual parts, I would use the spray stuff.

Ok y'all convinced to use the rust spray on here's my question all spring n summer I am bare foot. Can I paint it after I apply so it ain't black as I figure the sun will make it like Satan hott or does it not heat up like that. My floor is painted yellow right and I have a rubber mat over it. The floor was black paint when I got it and it would burn my feet bad.

You can't just drag the pics into the web browser. You have to upload them somewhere first.

I used the stuff for the inside of my wheel wells, it holds up pretty good, however being it is a spray can it is paper thin coating and sandpaper like. I would never use it on the inside, that's what the monstaliner is for. It would probably take 50 cans of get the same thickness as the monstaliner.

It just depends on what your trying to use it for I guess. I'm not really getting tons of mud in my car, but it has a solid coating that protects against water/rust/dirt

I've never used the rattle can stuff, but I used either Duplicolor or Rustoleum in the 1 gallon can...purchased at Walmart. I used it to do the interior of our Chevy 3500 dump truck at work.

I sanded it all down, prepped it like the directions recommended...sanded off all rust and primed with a quality rusty metal primer and once the primer had dried, rolled on the bedliner. I let it dry for about 3-4 days before putting the interior back in. It looked great...for about 6 months. Then it began chipping away and rusting through. The truck had barely even been used so it's not like it had seen heavy foot traffic.

I ended up Herculining it with the roll on Herculiner kit...10x better.

The cheap stuff isn't bad for light duty use...but I sure wouldn't use it in the interior of my Jeep after the results I had with our dump truck. I actually did the Herculiner in the dump truck because of how well it's held up in my Jeep. The only downfall to Herculiner is it does fade pretty quickly in the sun...but that's purely aesthetic.

Come to think of it...when I redid the racks on my four-wheeler, I did use the rattle can bedliner. It sucked too. Texture was pretty neat...but I was able to scrape it down to bare metal with my fingernails like nothing. The stuff is just too thin.

Question texture

How much texture does this stuff have? My 04 LJ has Body Armor Rock Rails that also work great as a side-step, except that they get really slick when wet or snowy. The dealership where I sell Jeeps has a MW3 edition Rubicon which has the same/similar rock rails. The intriguing feature about them is that they are textured like a high quality pickup bedliner.

I just bought a can and I want to put it on, but I am concerned that it will not really create a non-skid texture.
