Cool Rhino lining costs too much! Help please

I recently baught a 1990 YJ, and it had carpet. I am going to take it up to Big bear and drive it in the snow. I dont want to carpet to get wet because then the inside of the car will start smelling really bad... It is also a dust magnet. I prefer NO carpet what so ever, but i need an alternative....

I origionally wanted to rhino line the whole "tub" but after stripping the car, I found out its ganna cost me at least 700 bucks to do it, i do not want to spend so much.

Does anyone have any good ideas on what to do to eliminate the carpet problem.

Is a regular indoor/outdoor spray paint a good idea?
Should i just keep it the way it is and put new carpets?

Roll on, do it yourself bed liner is way cheaper than 700 bucks.

They also make a spray in liner, but it takes a lot more prep for masking and over spray avoidance. It will also be thinner which means more chance of it scraping off.

What about the DIY products ? . . . a gallon or two of Herculiner shouldn't cost too much. I've seen at Lowe's the Rustoluem Bed Liner spray on stuff . . . I'd imagine something like that would be better than just paint (thicker, more durable, etc) . . . but I think the roll on stuff would be better and easier to deal with as you won't have to do as much prep, masking, etc, if you don't have to worry about the overspray issue. I'm planning to use the roll on bed liner stuff around the bottom of my van . . . figure I'd do the bumper and the bottom 12 inches or so around the entire van to cover up some of the bad spots and protect it.

EDIT - Looks like we were typing at the same time . . . great minds think alike!!!

I Herculined my tub using a roller and a paint brush.

Not the best job on the forum but it gets the job done well

I'd check out Monstaliner, its what i plan on putting in mine when i get one, interior and exterior. Doesn't use the same rubber crumb filler as the rest of the liners so its not rough at all and easier to clean, its also already UV protected so you dont have to buy the additional can of UV for herculiner, goes on a lot thicker too. Do a lot of research on what DIY roll on you want to use before making a decision.

I almost had my mind made up on herculiner before i found out about monstaliner. I've done a lot of reading on the topic so I'm confident in my decision. Hope this helps!

yea i did herculiner and was able to do a shit job on my cj when i had it and had enough leftover to do most of my current yj. best investment..i might buy a quart of it to re apply and get some of the spots i missed..

just pull your entire interior out, sand and scotch brite all surfaces. use acetone/m.e.k. or laquor to prep surfaces. then roll away! make sure you ventiliate though i almost died from the methyl ethyl ketone : x

Ditto. You can also apply it in thicker coats so you don't have to go over it as many times as you do Herc. Comes in a variety of colors as well. A little more expensive than Herc, but worth that added expense, IMO, and is what I'll be using this summer for my tub.

U-Pol Raptor liner is awesome, and not too expensive. I think it's lilke $150 for more than enough to do the tub with 2 coats and a spray gun..... Probably less if you don't need the gun. Pretty sure it can be rolled/brushed.

X2 , it will even be great for older hard tops.

If you remove all of the interior, rollbar(optional) and tape off everything off that need to be it should drop the price of the Rhino liner down to 400 or under.

I read this on another forum from a person who did that. They wanted 1000 but dropped the price to 400 if he did all the prep work.

Sounds like a great summer project. I have had the carpet out off my jeep for about 2 years now and it's wearing thin.

X2 on the Monstaliner. I will be doing the interior AND exterior and I have priced it out right around $500 with all the supplies including the tintable Monstaliner for the exterior. I did a ton of research and Monstaliner seems to be the best value for the money.

Do it yourself and save your money. It takes a few hours, nothing major. Took about two qt. cans, about 40$ each at auto zone. I used rust- oleum. Still holding strong!

It cost me a total of 40 dollars to line mine. I bought the cheap spray on bedliner from Advanced Auto for about 6 bucks a can. I bought several cans, removed the interior, scratched the paint with 80 grit sand paper (It's a little excessive, but it also added some non-skid surface) and sprayed on about 12 coats, not stopping between one empty can and the next. I have had a lot of people compliment me on how clean and smooth it looks, but still retaining slip resistance to it.

X3 for Monstaliner. I am doing my interior and exterior with it. Samples are great and tech help/customer service has been top notch. It is UV protected for 5 years so you won't have the white haze that you get with rhino type products. It comes in 18 colors.

Monstaliner do-it-yourself roll-on truck bed liner outperforms Herculiner Bed Liner, Duplicolor and Rustoleum Road Warrior
