jeepum I sprayed Line x in my 05 Rubicon the day after I bought it. I have NEVER wished I had done anything different! NO carpet NO mess NO WORRIES!!!! Go for it you won't regret it!

Pipp88 I did my 99 my self with Hercules brand. It will take a few days. U have to strip or sand the surface. Spray and then let it dry but I love mine no more wet carpet and easy to clean. I did it in black and I purchased some red paint to match and I web or splatter it to break up the black I think it looks great

dwfoulk1s Has anyone lined things like fender flares? I've done the inside and my front bumper and have been thinking about covering the flares to just avoid the fading and scratching. And it is just me or was the regular old paint brush much more effective overall than the roller? My whole second coat will be done by brush I'm thinking. Gets the cracks a whole lot better. Lets face it a Jeep tub isn't exactly an easy to brush square. Anyway if anyone has done the flares please let me know and get some pics so I can decide if I wanna go that route or not.

I'll have to do a little more research before I do that then. I don't want to make a nasty mess. It would look good if it would hold up though.

how much do the cans of paint weigh? I would assume that's how much weight is added

If you think it's that big of a deal, you should hit the gym and offset the weight gain... j/k

TerrorJ2001 too many people are doing an amazing job by DIY...

JeepersCreepers82 eBay...raptor liner came with gun to spray..make sure it's sprayed at 60 to 65 psi..and any rust sand and hit with por-15..eBay has that kit as well..por-15 kit includes cleaner and metal treatment. This process is easy and the results are awesome..
09-08-2010 08:55 PM
Spee77 Where did you buy that stuff? Looks awesome! And under two bills really?
09-08-2010 08:47 PM
JeepersCreepers82 Line-x can kiss my **s....u-pol raptor liner & coated floor boards with por-15 first...preparation is key!!! With these two products and a eye for detail you can have an awesome fully weather proof tub for under $170....this project took me a couple days, but that's cause my after market seats were a little tricky.....oh also raptor liner kit was enough to do speaker bar and sidesteps...

You would never get the tabs at the front of the lid back into the slots they fit into. As it is, just with the liner sprayed on the floor, I have to jam mine in. I thought about hittin it with a gnarly stripper pad, sand it smooth & shoot it. It would look nice.

If you go that route, definitely use duplicolor and not rustoleum. I have used both on the outside and dup definitely holds up better.

jz68 If Line-X is applied correctly, it will last forever. I had my first truck done in 2000 and the liner is still like the day it was sprayed except for being faded. They offer products to keep the like new shine but personally, I like the faded look better.

I'm sure people have used other products and had good luck with them but in terms of toughness, looks and longevity, nothing comes close to Line-X. Check the specs, don't take my word for it.

As long as you go with a reputable shop that knows what they're doing, you'll have no problems.

The Budd Just picked my 09 Sahara 4 door from Line-X. It cost me $1048 Canadian taxes in and they removed and reinstalled everything except the carpets which I had already removed a month or so ago. They did a great job. I had them apply clear coat on top to retain the sheen and make it easier to clean. My only regret is I probably should have paid a couple bucks extra and had it done in a dark charcoal gray like Scottrock did. I ride with my doors off 3 seasons and I don't want to keep worrying about what is happening to my floors under the caprets -- so . . . now no carpets. Don't worry about the wires, they don't spray them.

Best mod ever and worth every penny! Lord I hated that stinky carpet!!



I went with "SprayMax" in grey. Had the installer lay down a few sheets of aluminum heat shield on the tranny tunnel up front and one in the back to keep the mutt cool. They also sprayed all the plastic trim pieces around the seat belts, etc.

LOVE IT

CapptainObvious How long do the liners usually last? The life of the Jeep?

Militaryman4455 Herculiner and Mostaliner both hold up just as well as line-x... The key to bed liner is preperation! If you dont correctly prep then it wont work no matter how good the liner is.

I had a buddy who had a bad experience with line-x. He took his wrangler in and paid around $900 to get the interior done. They told him that they would not warranty the work but that it usually last up to 3 yrs so he was ok with it... Just a trail rig anyway. So he went through with it and about a month later the stuff started chippin up. Under the bed liner was perfectly smooth paint. They never even cleaned his floor much less sanded. He took it back to them and the guy said "I told you that we dont warranty it unless its in the bed of a truck." He was simply out the cash that it cost to bedline and now his floors look like sheit!

jz68 I've had Line-X bed liners on 3 trucks I've owned and it's an awesome product, much better than any of the other available spray or roll-on liners.

My first experience with a spray on bed liner was from a different manufacturer and lets just say that you don't ever want to go through the hassle of removing a spray on bed liner.

I've seen one Wrangler in person that had the inside sprayed and have seen photos of many more and it looks pretty damn slick.

I'll never use anything but Line-X if I decide to spray a Jeep or any other vehicle.

Militaryman4455 Just got finished rolling on my buddies cherokee with Herculiner... Worked great! The prep was a bitch but we had to weld a hole in his floor and get up a bunch of rust so the JK should not be as hard... Just make sure you go really slow with that roller or you will sling that sheit everywhere... And I would mark where all you need to cover around the center console... No reason to bed line all up under it if there is no need.

Oh.... And you will need a breaker bar for those seat bolts!
09-07-2010 10:40 AM
SaharaCon Any special tools needed for the job... Other than torc bits for the seats n seatbelts... I plan on doin the hurculiner, n was cuerious if i needed to buy anything else at the time...??? Thanks
