Rhino lining the exterior?

hey everyone! brand new to the forum, just found it today, but already a huge fan. I have a black 95 YJ (Bessie) that is in serious need of a paint job due to being here in England for the past 4 years. A co-worker suggested to me that i could get the exterior Rhino lined. I'm very intrigued by the idea of this, but i was wondering if anyone had done it to theirs. If so I would love to see pictures. Also maybe an idea of how much something like this might cost. Thanks!

I'm having just my flares done for $350 as I type this. This makes me think it would cost a good bit to do the whole thing.

I understand your reasoning because these will be the last flares I ever have to buy. I'm thinking it would be expensive!!!!

I'm having my jeep completely stripped and repainted for a little less than $2500 right now just to give you an idea of what some people are getting for paint.

Whats up here of a couple of pics of a Cherokee ,not mines just googled it. I think it Looks okay ,iam defiantly going to rhino line my interior and underneath my tub but i might also rhino line the exterior as well.The only problem i think would be a problem when it starts to snow it looks like the snow would have no problem sticking to this stuff.And the rhino-lining doesn't have to be black almost any color you want.And the pricing depends on your approach you can completely sand blast your jeep ,or remove the paint yourself with sandpaper ,nice amount of time bounding with your BESSIE.then depending on what brand you can get really cheap stuff or some really nice rhino lining.
One more thing I think your windsheld might get nicked by some rocks on the highway this ,this stuff makes them bonce ,.Think about it like this your rhino lined jeep is a bastketballl court, with the rock being the basketballs and your windshield the hoop
Although these are just some things to take into account.Good Luck!

i don't have it don but i've seen one w/ the rhino on it and it looks great. if i had the $$$ i'd do it in a heart beat. my dad got the bed of his truck done in 2004 and it cost him $900. so it's definitely an expensive venture.

LOL, I almost bought that when I was looking for my Grand Cherokee, it was in the lot right next to Discount Tire here in Spokane.
The previous owner did a poor prep job but it still looked decent. It was done with roll on stuff so it shouldn't be too expensive.

I wouldnt recommend doing the hood. it tends to hold alot more heat in the engine compartment. Or anything plastic. I have seen alot of XJs with the flares done and a year later they are usually flaking.

Did mine inside and out, no regrets other than not doing it sooner... did it myself sprayed on, pretty much the same amount of prep as you would for paint, took two gallons to do the whole thing. No problem with extra heat in the engine compartment, no problem with snow loading up, or any of the other problems brought up by those that don't have it

What I like most is it cleans up easy and usually looks good most of the time, along with if it ever needs touched up it won't be a big deal.

the spray on is alot thinner and easier to control also a ton better looking in my opinion. As for underhood heat I only have experience with the Cherokee on this but it brought up the temp from 200 to 220 the very next day. again that was roll on and was thick. a couple of vents installed and i was back to stock temps. Personal experience with it here also. i think cherokees are much worse for running hot then the yj anyway. But i still say that going over rubber or plastic without prepping it right will not last.

Oh just for arguement sake i had my own body shop for years and did alot of spray on and roll on bedliners and such on all sorts of vehicles. Also sprayed alot of boats when i worked at trojan Yacht So this is something i am accustomed to doing.

I can see the heat with a Cherokee, I got my first look inside an engine compartment of one last week and it's tight in there compaired with a YJ which seems to have a lot more room and open areas. I like spraying it on and really have my hat off to those of you that go through the work of rolling it on, that is way too much like work in my book

I've done a good bit of the prep work, but I'm having a pro shoot the paint and rhino for me. I checked on it yesterday and it is coming along.

Those of you that know me and my YJ know that I have a fiberglass hood that I hate. One of the hold ups is that I ordered a replacement oem hood from Chrysler and as it turns out, they don't have any more in stock and never will. I've had to go with an aftermarket steel hood.

Rhino Exterior

I actually own a Rhino Dealer and have done many vehicle exteriors including my own 4 Runnner inside and out. I adds a bit of weight but the protection is great. I actually rolled my 4 Runner and besides a flat spot on the roof, there was not visible damage. Its also less expensive than you might think. All rhino dealers are independantly owned and have different prices but I charge $2500 for most exterior jobs and that includes prep and teardown.
