Spray on bed liner floor covering?

Hey, I've been thinking of a way to deal with water on the floor pan of my 2006 TJ. I live in the US Virgin Islands where I have the luxury of going topless or leaving the windows off all the time. Of course, we get a lot of sporadic showers but by the time it would take to stop and close up the top the rain has passed.

My question is, has anyone ever applied a spray on bed liner to their floor to deal with the ever present water from being in such a climate? I was thinking of doing this and want to get some feedback.

Also, does anyone know of a good plug system to help with draining the water that accumulates?

Thanks

Just read a post from EchoThruMe who has replaced carpeting with bed liner. I have heard good things (in passing) but nothing first hand...Give him / her a shout.

I'm having bed liner done as we speak. It's a good thing to have it helps keep rattling down, water tight, no carpet (less chance of mold), easy to clean what more could you want.

I had rhino lining in my 89 YJ and it worked like a charm! I never used plugs because on the trail anything that came up was just washed out at the end anyways as mud would fly through the windows and all and I would have to spray out any how. I would suggest getting a neoprene seat cover as well.

I Herculined mine (rolled/brushed in) and love it...in fact, I loved it so much I just did the back of my John Deere Gator at work and redid the floor of our dump truck with it. I originally used either the Rustoleum or Duplicolor bedliner in the dump truck (Duplicolor I believe) and it SUCKED. I even applied 3-4 coats after sanding the interior down to bare metal AND applying a rusty metal prime to all my rusted spots. If I dropped a hammer in there...it'd scratch clear through...and the rusted floorboards rusted right through it. It also started chipping in multiple places. It hasn't even been in there a year and we don't use that truck very often as it is. Moral is...don't cheap out...get a decent quality kit. I personally like the texture of the Herculiner, but Monsta liner and Raptor Liner also appear to be very good products as well, each with their own unique textures.

I have used Herculiner on a previous Jeep and liked it then. I used Monstaliner on my current Jeep and I have to say that I like the Monstaliner a lot more than Herculiner. The Monstaliner has a great texture without being too rough. They are both tough and take everything I throw at them (I am always throwing a log chain, chain saw, hammer, etc in there). I like the fact that Monstaliner is UV protected also as the Herculiner faded after a year or so.

My Herculiner has also begun to fade...though I wasn't dead set on my interior being the perfect shade of black either so the uv protection wasn't a deal breaker for me. Just figured I'd throw that info out there though.

If you go with Herculiner they do offer a UV protection product you can apply that supposedly keeps it from fading. I didn't use it so I can't comment, but without it I can tell you it definitely fades. It's also very hard to keep clean due to the rubber pieces which are supposed to give it texture. I've never had a problem with it peeling or coming off, but it is a very rough product that will easily remove skin, so keep that in mind.

That said, I use Monstaliner in my Jeep and I have been very happy with it. It creates its own texture much like Line-X or Rhino liner does, and doesn't use rubber pieces to do so. I have nothing but great things to say about Monstaliner and it's vendor. Check them out over here:

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

They have a special going on; if you buy a kit of Monstaliner for your Jeep, you get free shipping and a free quart of Chassis Saver (chemically the same as POR-15 only not so expensive). And the vendor provides amazing support; just checkout the thread over on JeepForum to see that.

I have my floor done in Bedliner. Best decision I've made about my jeep so far if it gets wet pull the plugs and it runs out if it gets muddy throw a hose in there and wash it out. Well worth the investment
