Rhino Liner vs Por-15 or Herculiner

I just got off the phone with a local Rhino Liner dealer and he gave me a price of $600 to do the interior of my YJ. I've also seen some threads about Por-15 and Herculiner. Any thoughts? I'm trying to save some money because I also spoke to Ryan at Rough Country this morning and I will be ordering the 4" lift from him. Trying to do the most with the least amount of money before the wife and kids disown me.

I sprayed my tub with Raptor by U-pol about a week ago.... It set me back about $125 total including masking material. The most difficult part was the tedious masking. I spreayed it up and over the bedrails as well. I have used herculiner before and have had a pickup tub and my previous jeep tub sprayed with Rhinoliner. I would go with Raptor if I were to do it again and already have plans to use it in my boat. The material is not quite as thick as rhinoliner but feels harder and I applied it with a similar texture. Herculiner was ok when it came to durability but I wouldn't want to apply it anywhere exposed because it's appearance wasn't what I'd want to show off. Here's a picture or two. I'll try to get a few more today.

I used Rhino Liner and my experience has been very good. I recommend it, besides the finish is very nice.

The PO of my YJ did a shotty job at Herculining the interior, but my F-150 truck bed is Herculined, was done correctly, and has held up tremendously well. No complaints, no loose spots or anything tearing up, and overall a very good investment for the money.

Is that $600 if they do the prep or if you prep it?

You can cut down the cost a ton if you prep it yourself and all that.

U-Pol Raptor is the best bang for your buck, I think. It looks more uniform than the others. Thats why I chose it. Which ever route you choose just be sure and prep the heck out of it. Thats what matters.

por 15 wont stick very well to anything with paint on it even if its ruffed up good. but is indestructable when put over rust.

The PO of my 94 YJ Herc'd my tub. It seems to have held up well. It looks like he beat the ever livin **** out of it on a regular basis and no peeling or fading that I've found, but he didn't do the prettiest job in the world either.

I think I'm actually going to spray from Rustoleum Bed liner in a can over the Herc and see how it improves the look.

That Raptor does look good though.

I did the herc as well. Prepped it real well and sprayed it on with an undercoating gun. Easy peezy and in my opinion came out looking as good as rhino line.

Thanks for all the quick reponses. I'd like to do the job myself without spraying if possible. never did it before and I don't want to spray the kids or dog by accident ... LOL ... I'm a paramedic not a mechanic but I know how to turn a wrench.
That price of $600 was me removing everything and just dropping it off.
Additionally, the inside of the tub where I'd be doing this is still facory painted. Would I need to strip this or can the POR-15 go right over it if that is the way I'm going.
