Question Whats a good bedliner to use?

I hate the carpet in my jeep. Just doesn't fit a jeep life... Not to mention I took it out to clean it and when I came back the next night I found three dead rats on it. Xp gross.

Anyways! I started preping my interior to put in some bedliner, but wasn't sure what brand to use. I saw a few people say the Rust-oleioum was good, and a few peolpe say it sucks. I saw quite a few newness out there and wanted to know what you guys thought. I plan to cover the entire interior in the liner.

What kind have you guys used/liked?

Also, has anyone had any problem with the passenger side with heating, since the exhaust is right under the floor board?

Any advise is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

My buddy has a his tub done in Bed liner with no carpet. Great for protecting the tub and cleaning it out, however adds a lot of noise volume without the carpet. I've never noticed any exhaust heat issues and I'm usually the passenger when we take his. I'm considering lining mine and putting the carpet back in over it. Truthfully so is he when he can find a carpet set for the right price. Just my 2˘.

I'd also be interested to hear what brands and types (rattle can, roll on, and spray in) people recommend as we have the equip to do any of the above.

I used Herculiner, its really rough but I wasn't looking for a smooth floor. I have had no issues with fading or chipping. I did all the prep work and rolled it on out of a can in a weekend and was able to drive it to work on Monday.

I used Herculiner on my first Jeep and it worked great. For my Rubicon I'm planning on going with Monstaliner after seeing it on a friend of mines Jeep. I'm probably with an OD green color instead of the traditional black.

I used Monstaliner in my old Jeep. It is a very nice product, and the vendor is very supportive. He is user "Magnetman" over on JeepForum.

I have used Herculiner for other projects in the past, and it is way to rough for my liking. Monstaliner doesn't use those rubber particles to create texture which is nice, so it's more akin to the texture of Line-X or Rhino liner which I prefer. I plan on using Monstaliner in my new Jeep once the weather gets a little warmer.

I rolled my entire tub with Herculiner and I am loving it. I have sprayed my lightbar and random other parts with the spray on bedliner from rustoleum and it works great just for what it is. I went to autozone over the weekend to get some more Herculiner for my new swing out tire carrier/bumper and out of the three cans I got all of them were bad. I had to bring them back one at a time. I guess they sat for to long or something. So I gave the duplicolor roll on bedliner a try and I was surprised. It is actually really great for my bumper. It is no where as rough as my Herculiner but for my bumper it seems perfect. It is almost like a rough powder coat, just a little more grit to it.

"erickpl" on here used Monstaliner. I know he is very happy with it. He's pretty much sold me on it as well.
Paul rolled his on, but I will try to spray mine. Either way, the results rely on the prep.
I lined the inside of my buddy's truck with Herculiner. It turned out nice, but as othes have said, it is 'chunky'.

He'll probably chime in, but these are erickpl's pics. These are just some close-ups.









This is Herculiner

I used a product call UPOL Raptor. Did the whole jeep, inside and out. I love how it turned out and so far not a single problem. Just completed the build in october. I'm probably going to do our LJ in raptor also but in color.

There's also a product called Lizard Skin. In one of their versions they add ceramic into the formula. It sprays on like a bed liner and is just as tough. But it also reduces heat from floor boards and noise. It comes in a DIY kit. It's a big trend in the muscle/ classic car world. Worth looking into.

Herculiner. I will def use it again on my new Jeep. I prefer the rougher texture. Looks badass I think and holds up great!

I would like to spay a liner in my tub but with the exterior color being black and my entire interior colors spice, I don't have a clue what color to do it in. What I do know is I do NOT want it to be black. Spice is a hard color to compliment if you don't use black though (I think). Any suggestions? I'd like a light color.

i used herculiner in my tub, worked grate, nice rough texture, easy to clean. i did all the prep, and rolled it on in about 8 hours, but that was running back and fourth to my buddies house for parts. make sure you have a weird star tool to take out the drivers seat! but it was a quick process and i could drive it the next day. stayed on no chips at all, still looking good. put down a mat though like in the picture above, will help a lot

The PO rhino-lined my interior and it is similar to herculiner. I don't like how rough it is and eventually will be fixing it if I can find out how...

That's a "Torx" socket. Our Jeeps are assembled with a good majority of torx bolts.

The monstaliner that some has mentioned is available in several colors, check them out.

If you want ideas, try looking through or posting in the Monstaliner thread over on JF. They have quite a few colors to pick from, and there are a good many examples over there people can show you pictures of:

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

They even have a Spice color that should match your interior if you're interested.

Magnetman (the Monstaliner vendor over on JeepForum) has helped others remove old crappy bedliners, if you need some help I'm sure he can help you out.

I see tons of herculiner, mostaliner and spray-lining cons and pros. ...

From looking at the pictures in this post it seems that the monstaliner is pretty smooth and glossy. Not sure if this was spray or rolled. Also, if it was sprayed, how much did you lose in the job? Spray-Lining is designed for use with a spray gun because of the set time and the material behavior. It will cure slower if you don't put it through the hopper gun because the pressure speeds up the chemical reaction......

Spray-Lining is a little less glossy and can be more or less textured. That is a good thing about spray-lining. The only issue is colors. Monstaliner has a solid color set and process. Spray-Lining really has developed a system for auto body shops to offer a custom tinting process to their customers. They only have 16 diy colors choices and no neon colors for DIY products. But, if you want a thick basic color then Spray-Lining is a great DIY product. They also give enough basic materials to account for overspray and loss.

I like Herculiner's texture and monstaliners colors. I like spray-lining's variations and support. They are there on the phone with you when you are ready to do the job..... Awesome. So, I don't see any one vendor as bad, just different.
