Hey guys, finaly got my project jeep stripped on the body. Planning on getting the frame done soon. Want to Rhinoline it, or something like that. Price is no option because i want this jeep to be strong for as long as it can. Any opinions on products?

If price isn't an option then go rhinoliner. If you want the do it yourself on the cheaper side go Durabak or Herculiner.

Yeah most people do Herculiner or Rhinoliner, or if you want to get it done professionally Line-X is good. Or you could buy a Raptor kit and DIY which I have heard good things about. I Herculined mine after BamianYJ told me about his and I love it. It looks great and is really rugged.

if money is no object then go with rhinoliner or line-x. i used a duplicolor bed liner in my cj7 and i like it, but if i had the $$$ i would have gone with rhino or line-x. just my .02 though

I've heard really good things about Rhinoliner and Line-x, but you can expect paying a bit more with that than if you went with Herculiner. I've had my Herc in the tub for a while now and can't complain.

i researched all the above products as well. most professionally applied products are installed up to and or over 1/8" thick. I felt that going nuts with these products would tend to make my jeep heavier than it need be. and i would be denying myself the best part....getting covered in gooey product that DOES NOT COME OFF. but hercing my jeep has been a great move on my part because it looks great. it's very rugged. its thinner and lighter...this was a concern for me due to it on inside and outside of vehicle in areas. and i saved a boat load of $$$ to blow on other upgrades.

I had a local shop Line-X the entire interior of my '92, and love it. He's done quite a few, so knew how to get into all the corners and stuff. He got *everything* from the dash to the tailgate (I took it to him with nothing but the rollbar and a milk crate "driver seat" inside), and even put on a set of "door guards" for me - no doors or doors open, you can see Line-X on the exterior; close the doors and its covered; that way I'm not kicking paint when I get in/out. He also laid it on pretty thick at my request - I'm not worried about weight, and it makes it a lot quieter. I love it. If I get another Jeep, it'll be the first thing I do.

i painted min in urv 15. its a thick strong as paint, suposed to be the best rust preventive pain in the world. im pretty happy. but line rhino and line ex looks better, and linex is better than rhinoliner for sure.

Found some old pics of my YJ, right after getting it done. You can see the "door sill guards" he put on for me - the doors cover them completely when installed/closed, but they work AWESOME keeping me from kicking/nicking the paint. All I did was scribe where I wanted the edge(ish) with a marker before taking it to him - same thing with the blend-up on the rollbars (wanted to make sure all I saw was Line-X when the pads were on).
