Lining the inside of my Jeep

I've been seeing a lot of people using Rust-Oleum bed liner and hearing good reviews. I'm not using my jeep as a heavy duty work vehicle but I just want it to be protected by rust and look better without spending too much. Would it be a good idea to use this brand of liner or is there another brand similar? I saw that Harbor Freight had their own brand but I'm weary on using a store brand.

I used Rustoleum once and it was fine, it doesn't have the texture that most other brands have but I didn't mined that. The best on the market is Mostaliner or Raptorliner. I have never used Harbor Freight but im sure it is probably made the same place as the rustoluem brand. Anyways, cheap route would be rustoleum and it would give you a good cover and do what you want it to do.

I used the Rustoleum and it came out really well. I used the roll/paint on and the spray.

I used the Duplicolor spray cans and it did a good job. I've done the back half inside and used three cans, one can per coat. I found a 6 pack for $40 on Amazon, gonna get that for the front and the wheel wells. Cheap and easy, just like I like it!

Yeah it's really cheap! I'm probably just going to get can for the frame and underparts. I used the spray on my rear bumper and it came out just the same as roll on. If not better

Definitely worth the price, and, so far, it's holding up very well.

It's all basically the same stuff. Prep is key to it. Having used most bed liners I would spend the extra and NOT use the spray cans

So far the spray rustoleum is holding up well. I also just used it to touch up the spots I couldn't get so well. But I agree, the roll on is much thicker.

.

When I used the spray stuff on my Cherokees floors, it got sticky/tacky from the exhaust heat or if it sat in a parking lot with all the windows up. I used hurculiner on the exterior half of my Cherokee and after 4 years (daily driving and wheeling) it still look like new. How over the PO of my YJ put the same stuff in there two years ago and it's all almost gone now. Even in places where you wouldn't expect it like next to the backseat. Prep is the key

Damn maybe I should've went for the herculiner or other brand. I prepped it pretty well with the sanding of rust and cleaning. I might do the exterior in the herculiner instead of rustoleum

How rough is it? I used it about 4 years ago and it was pretty rough (the rubber chunks). It is rough enough to take off skin. I'd love to use them again it's held up amazing ...Just wondering if they smoothed it out a bit if you will. Mines gone to the point where I can't tell

It's pretty rough. I don't think I would use it on the outside of a vehicle unless it was on something like diamond plate rocker panels.

Roughy but not enough to cut or scrape bare feet. The Cherokee looks awesome. I'll try to post some pics but I'm not sure you will be able to see much.

No it's looks good and it looks like they've mellowed it out some as well. Thanks for the pictures!
