It is really easy to keep clean too. Hose works great, and if you haul a dog around, no more hair stuck in the carpet!

On a side note that '93 has the original 4.0 and just hit 250k miles. Thing will not die...

Yeah the dry time is the worst part. I thought you would be good in FL though when I saw your location. That stuff will hold up for many years. Did you go with black? I have seen red and grey as well, but think black turns out the best.

Just the rear seat I believe. Very easy.

01-11-2013 06:10 PM
mig33157 Daleee will do
01-11-2013 06:05 PM
xcoaste You brush / roll it on. If the kit doesn't come with a brush or roller no need to get a high dollar one. Plan on throwing your supplies away when you are complete. Goodluck and post pictures when done!

Quick search in the TJ forum and found that great write-up. If the link doesn't work just search "herculiner". Sorry didn't know how to link another thread!

I don't have any of those Jeeps anymore. Here is a link to the product....
Herculiner Truck Bed Liners

You can find it at Walmart, or Lowes / Home Depot probably has it too. My tips would be to put it on thick, in a well vented area. Remove anything that is bolted to the floor for an easy install. You can do it without removing the seats, but you might spend just as much time trying to apply under and around them as you would unbolting. Put a piece of tape over any bolt holes as well to prevent the herculiner from jamming up threads.

If nobody around here posts pictures, try the TJ forum section. I am sure someone will have some pictures of it there!

01-11-2013 09:58 AM
tabber02 there are a couple of DIY bed line kits out there.... no where near the price of line-x, have you thought about any of those?

or just run like ESP suggested... with mats and no carpet.
