at only $10 a can for auto primer and $10 ($8 on sale at harbor freight) a can for the liner, it looks like I saved myself about $500. BUT you get what you pay for... I'd say It looks good and protects well, BUT a real LineX or Rhino job would look and protect from scratches better.
I did the Duplicolor rattlecan liner a couple of years ago and it works great.
I had been wanting it thinker so a couple of days ago I bought two more cans and coated it pretty good.
To me it looks and works great, hell it's not as if I'm throwing lumber in it.
Next I'm gonna put it on my stock rims until I can get black ones.

Sure. For awhile it was popular to use the tube bumpers as air tanks, but now that people want the big honkin' square bumpers with hooks and what not all over them, some folks are going to the roll bar. He's using larger diameter tubing, so he gets a super strong roll bar plus room for lots of air. Plus an on-board compressor, so he doesn't even really need the tank. The tank for the ARB lockers is under the hood and tiny.

Sb5551 That is an awesome idea. Roll bars as an air tank.

The tub is fiberglasss, so a little less prep work, but he also added some custom work (look close at the fenders). I know the shop had this for quite some time, and it took longer than planned.

This is a shot of the roll bar, which doubles as an air tank. Think of the time to spray all that!

I thought you did a great job on yours. I was looking at yours for what I can do on my cj. You know, with a smaller budget than my coworker evidently has.

thats about what i was thinking. i'd say 600 for an interior of a jeep tub is fair, now we're talking about the detail needed to make the exterior look good, i mean a truck bed is just gonna get beat up, not the outside of a vehicle. and a roll bar, and flares. i don't think its all that unfair.

4point Do you just Armorall that instead of waxing it.

Somewhere's in that neighborhood. I didn't press too hard - it's his personal Jeep. But includes inside and out, roll bar, fender flares and rocker panel in black, etc.

RhinoLining a Jeep

I see a lot of questions on what it's like to do truck lining on an entire Jeep. Well, here at Bestop, we've got an engineer named George who's been building up this CJ. He drives it to work every day now, so I took some shots.

More of this Jeep is over on our blog, and we'll cover it in more depth later on in a video.

But these photos are just about the RhinoLining. George had this done, and says it cost about 2 grand.

Stop by the Bestop Blog for more happiness. And more pictures!
