Bed liner on entire body??????

Considering using a bed liner to coat the entire body of my 89. Pros and cons please. Any advice or input is appreciated. (colors, brands, what not to coat)

I have a 1994 and I used Monstaliner on the entire outside of it. Put on 3 coats with the spray gun they sell. I like it very well. Hasn't gotten any brush scratches yet. It's about a year and a half old. If you spray it make sure you strain it through some window screen before putting in gun, that way there won't be any chunks.

Appreciate it. I like that blue. Never hear of monstaliner. Going to do some research. Pretty sure I'm going with desert tan though.

I'm not really sure why people do it unless they're hiding bad rust or bad body work. It is durable as hell though.

Bedliners have different textures by brand.
Some are like coarse sandpaper and others are like "oatmeal".

I suggest you research the textures of what is available in your area.
I would guess that the bedliner that has the oatmeal texture should be easier to keep clean and not hold the dirt as much as the coarse sandpaper type brand.

For me, if I were to ever do a bedliner on the outside of a Jeep, I would do nothing but desert tan.

If you plan on doing the job yourself, remember, prep (cleaning and sanding) is the key to a successful outcome.

Successful outcome = the stuff doesn't peel.
Plus, look at how srchief masked his Jeep.

Good Luck, L.M.

Where I live, it is nothing but mesquite trees. They scratch the hell out of regular paint. The body on my 89 is rust free and it was ready for paint the day I bought it. I probably won't do it myself simply because I have absolutely no experience in the field. Ill more than likely go with a less coarse liner just for cleaning purposes, but i just figured it would make the body last much longer by doing it. Plus some vehicles that I have seen, when done right, have looked pretty bad ass as well. Thanks for the comments guys.

I thought about a regular paint job that would look nice, but it was cost prohibited and then I wouldn't want to take off road in fear of ruining the paint job. This was around $300 including buying the undercoating gun. And looks as good now as when I first did it. I also used their black for the top. The web site is Monstaliner.com. They have about 30 colors. There is usually a promo on wrangler forum or jeep forum. That way you get free shipping and a quart of chassis saver paint.

Oh by the way, you can order color sample chips for free up to 5. I had no body work problems. Just wanted good protection without breaking the bank.

Just remember, it's permanent. Only time liner comes off easily is when you don't want it to.
