Undercarriage

has anyone bed lined their undercarriage or done something similar? I was thinking about doing this as it seems like it would be easier to clean, just hit with pressure washer, and would prevent rust and all that good stuff.

Bed liner would not be good for your undercarriage

I have rust sealed (KBS Coatings) my frame and undercarriage and it is fantastic. Por 15 is good stuff but they have refused to improve their product and some of the people left the company and started KBS.

How is the coating applied? I mean are there locations( i.e around the t-case,tranny, shafts) that needs to be avoided? How much coating should bed used? finally, Does the KBS need to be re-applied every year?

For those who have used it, can you tell me if its necessary to wash to areas you are applying the product to or can you shoot it over water and salt like WD40

You need to follow the prep work for the KBS and it can be sprayed or put on with a brush. It is self leveling and will last a very long time. If applied correctly 10 to 15 years. Do not do as others have and skip steps on the prep work or you will be disappointed the same goes for por15.

I'll have to look into this... Can this be done in a driveway at home or something you should take and get the jeep on a lift?

Im looking at the KBS products, this is probably a really dumb question... but does it HAVE to be rusted over to use this ... or can I use this before theres any rust? My undercarriage doesnt have any rust and I'd love to keep it that way..

I have sprayed the undercarriage of my son's TJ with bed liner, infact we did the whole jeep. We prepared the surface with a wire wheel, then rust converter primer, and a couple coats of bed liner. It is very durable and easy to clean. My project this winter is bed lining the underside of my TJ. For more info click on the restoration link in my sig.

Is there any parts that should be avoided when spraying this stuff under there? Or you go over EVERYTHING? Suspension, drive shaft, tcase, everything?

Por 15 or chassis saver paints are great for the outside..fluid film or even used motor oil for the inside.easwood has a aerosol rust inhibitor for inner frame rails also.

Don't spray your suspension/drive train with Bedliner

We coated the frame and and body. I wouldn't do any of the drive train except maybe the axles. If there is no rust on the surface you only need to scuff and spray. To me POR is no different than any other high quality coating if there is no rust to paint over.

Probably silly, but bedliner and the rust coating would be considered the same? And I figured it was a bad idea but I wanted confirmation haha

Awesome so just the frame work. My axels look fine, a little grungy looking but no rust.

No rust doesn't have to be present for KBS to work. They are just letting you know that painted over rust won't rust a more once covered. They also have cavity wax for inside the frame it works great.

I am in St. Augustine and have never made it out to those areas although I really would like to. Theres a jeep club here, Matanza's Jeep Club, and they do a lot of those outtings. Im not in it or anything as I have a hard time staying dedicated to clubs and mandatory meetings ... lol. I'll venture out there for a camping trip here this summer though
