anyone pull the carpet and use bedliner ?

I'm thinking of pulling my floor carpet, and using bedliner paint on the floor. Lots easier to clean after a day having fun Any thoughts about roll on, brush on, spray on ? Also a possible brand that may work best ? Running just a bikini top, no hardtop, or with the wife's allergies, I doubt I could use it because of possible smell. Or,, maybe that isn't an issue with bedliner paint ?

One TIP.... get the liner that is smooth as possible IF MUD is in your diet... Getting mud stains out of rough bed liner is a ppain.

I did roll on bed liner and it worked great, no smell after drying. That said, I reinstalled my carpet for three reasons. 1. It stays cooler in the summer, it surprising how much of the heat from the cat and motor is blocked by the carpet and heavy felt backing. 2. It's seems warmer in the winter, metal transfer the cold way to well. 3. And this is minor, but the jeep is quieter inside especially with the top on.

Have to recommend a 1gal Monstaliner kit man. Have my whole tub done in the stuff for the past year and not a scratch. Not even fading at all. Smooth and easy to clean when done to!

You can tint the monstaliner to about any color you want. I am looking to do the same.

The PO of my Jeep did the bedliner, unfortunately he didn't prep the inside of the tub first so it's peeling off in sheets. I did the same thing Reno did, carpet, since it's also my daily driver, and it does make a difference as far as heat/cold and noise.

Never attempt anything you don't want to have to explain to the EMT

A coworker had his YJ tub Rhinolined professionally. He loves it, but after a few years with the top off the black is fading a little.

I can't speak from experience, as mine is still sitting in cans, but I chose Monstaliner after doing the research. Also, Jeepforum members get some bonuses with Monstaliner.

I did this a long time ago and used the Herculiner roll on kit. It's held up ok everywhere but under my right heel. I later sprayed the entire exterior in Monsta Liner. If I were to do the inside again I'd go with the Monsta there too.

Pulled carpet. Stock paint underneath is easiest to clean mud and dust. No bucks, no prep, no work.

I have done Monstaliner on two jeeps and have rhino on my 89.

Rhino is 10 years old and going strong. The 2 Monstaliner jeeps are only 1 year into use. I did it to match each jeep. One red and one white. I like the "stockish" look. I did put carpet back in the 91 to keep noise and heat/cold transfer down. That jeep is all street and driven by my wife some.

The white one sees a lot of sand so I am not sure about the longevity since it basically has sand paper on the floor a lot. Time will tell.
