Exclamation Rhino Line The Whole Damn Thing

I gotta question?? Has anyone heard of, have pics of, or seen anyone who has rhino lined their whole rig??? I'm actually thinking about line-x because i heard that was better, but was wondering if this has been done. Also, I was wondering if you can take the dash out of a newer Wrangler (1996+) and put it into a 95. Just wondering if it would fit, or if there is an aftermarket dash kit out there somewhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Matthew Stevens

A guy here in my area Line-X'd the his CJ inside and out. It doesn'tlook bad, but it fairly heavy from what he tells me. He claims it added about 200 lbs. It is 1/4" thick inside and out. I have my doubts that it is as heavy as he says it is, but it looks ok and will take a beating.

Also, if I remember right, I read an srticle online about someone doing there whole Jeep. Possibly something that was linked to from this forum.

I can't help you with your dash. I can't condone someone mutilating a perfectly good YJ, but I think someone, maybe Jeepcrawler98 put a CJ dash in his Jeep. He might can help.

I'm getting ready to Line-X the inside tub of my 92, and the guy (a friend of mine) says he's going to lay it in thicker than usual, about 5/8", and just the interior should add close to 75lbs. If you're unsure about the weight, just go to a new car dealer with a pickup that's been done. Took my Ram 2500 (Line-X'd) to the dealer and removed the tailgate so I could hold it in my hand. Took the plain gate off the same truck sitting there new. Just the gate was noticably heavier. I'm not as concerned about the weight since I'm a light-trail-driver at most (at least at this point) - I'm most concerned with holding off the rust monster and getting some sound-deadening and utility out of it in the process.

I don't know if you really need it any thicker on the Jeep tub. This stuff is designed to get the sh#@ kicked out of it in the back of a truck. I have seen a couple of Jeeps in magazines that were lined all over and in pictures they looked pretty good. As far as rust goes, mine seems to rust from the inside out. The rust seems to start where the inner fender is welded to the outher fender in the front and where that plate is welded inside the quarter panel in in the rear.

So are you talking about lining the whole jeep? Inside and out? Or just the inside of the tub? I've seen it and it will definitely take a licking to protect the inside of your rig. Especially in the tail gate area and over the wheel wells. Think it runs about 600 or so to do the interior. The only downfall is going to be the heat that gets thru the floor. The carpet is a pretty good insulator, but you can just pick up some cheap rubber mats or that outdoor rubber floor matting stuff to help. Also it will be a bit louder than if you have carpet.

If you are interested in protecting the under belly from rust think about using metal roofing tar. You can put that stuff on over dirt/grease/paint and it will stick. ALso you can put it on as thick or thin as you want and it will hardend like nothing you have ever seen. Also a lot cheaper than the other products you seen.

As far as you dash questions, I'm pretty sure that the width of the TJ vs. the YJ is different. I think the YJ is wider than the new models. Also the wiring and heater setup is different. Not saying that it can't be done, but I belive it would take a lot of work for little gain.

why would you want to add that much weight to it? and 1/4 to 5/8 thick???...that's crazy, why not just build the body out of .750 sheet metal....
it's a cool idea, but unless you know someone that does it I'd think it would break the bank when they already want wayyyy to much to do a simple project like the bed of a truck...

If I wanted to add that much weight I'd do it in the form of some D44's or even 60's...

Yup, found someone to do it for about a 1000 dollars give or take in central Illinois. So, we'll see I guess. I'm in Iraq until the spring (early spring hopefully, haha). Keep ya updated.

I cut out my old floor pans and welded new ones in...once herculined the interior, I drilled out holes big enough for boat plugs. This way I can cruse withem out like for crossing rivers (water quickly goes in,and quickly goes out)or remove em when i hose out my jeep. But for like 5 bucks each, they are a life saver! The factory grommets are dumb...

Yep...You live in New York dont you. That damn plastic on the sides is a great place to grow rust isn't it.
