Bed liner

Just removed the carpet out of my 89 and was thinking of putting the bed liner on the inside. Anyone do this and how do you like it.

There's a ton of posts about this on the forum. It seems the biggest issue when bedlining the inside or outside is proper prep. Everyone that's done this mod really seems to like it. I hope to line the inside of my tub later this year. Just search bed lining and those posts should come up. Good luck and post up your results.

There are several textures available for bedliner. From "crispy) (great traction with sharp points) to "oatmeal" (much easier to keep clean and has the texture of oatmeal). With the "crispy" the silt from mud gets caught in the valleys between the sharp peaks and is difficult to hose out. I don't think traction is an issue on the floors of our Jeeps.

You might investigate the various textures available by Googling "bed liner" and your town's name. Most bedliner installers will be glad to show you a sample. A little research here will net you a more satisfying outcome.

You can install it your self by spraying or rolling.
As Old Gunny states, prep is the key to a lasting installation.

First, wash the floor with detergent and water and dry it. Then wipe it down with a pre-paint solvent such as PrepSol. PrepSol is a brand name foe wax and grease remover.
Use lots of clean rags with the wax and grease remover.
Then sand the entire area to be bedlined with 80# sandpaper. Any shiny spot that you leave is a potential spot that will peel.
Then roll or spray as your available equipment dictates. Most posters on this forum seem to be happy with the results they get with rolling.

Post some before and after pics. This is a popular mod and I'm sure there is a bunch of interest.

Good Luck, L.M.

Good info LM, thanks for the feedback. I pulled the carpet out that was in the jeep and it was damp under it and really don't want to deal with moisture issues. I have been told that you need the carpet to keep the heat down but have not had a chance to really drive it to see if that's the case.

I pulled the carpet out of mine and did a spray-in bed-liner. I really like it.

As for heat I am running a SBC and have noticed any issues.

A 1" or 2" body lift should help quite a bit with heat from the cat & muffler. With a 2" body lift 33s will fit a 2 1/2" spring lift, saving the cost of a slip yoke eliminator and custom driveshaft.

I chose carpet because I was going for a more "civilized" look. I wasn't concerned about heat. The carpet is probably quieter than bedliner. I wouldn't really know because of how my fiberglass uppers fit my half doors. Drivers side is fine. Passenger side has a banshee riding alongside.
Wind noise is such an issue that I bought a set of full doors. They are all welded up and go to the media blaster Monday and then to the painter once all the old paint is off.

Good Luck, L.M.

durabak 18

I did my exterior last summer with Durabak 18 rough texture .Its available in a ton of colors compared to others . The 18 makes it UV resistant to fading . I washed thoroughly and wiped down with zylene . I sanded the original paint until I knocked the gloss away .I then wiped down with Zylene for final cleaning . Then applied two coats by roller using almost 1 gallon .I touched up hard to get areas with dabbing on with a brush.When you buy Durabak they throw in the roller for free . I get a lot of compliments on the texture which looks like rough sandpaper. The inside was done with spray can rustoleum bedliner by previous owner but will be redo[ATTACH][ATTACH]Click image for larger version

How does the surface do with mud or heavy dust? Seems like it would hold small particles of dirt when you wash it. Just asking

It probably will hold some silt. The smoother textures will be easier to clean than the rougher textures.
I have Rhino Liner in the bed of my F-150. It's much easier to clean than the carpets in my Jeep.

I've had the truck about 5 years and the only damage to the Rhino Liner came from abuse. If properly prepped, the bed liner should hold up for as long as you have the Jeep.

Good luck, L.M.

I can see it for the inside of the tub but I think for the outside I would want a smooth finish. But that is just my Thought.

When a power washer fails to get it all off scrub brush and you don't have to worry about scratching the finish
