Gladly, but I forgot I offered to op an alternative to monstanliner. But as usual if it's not your product its crap. I have never seen monstaliner firsthand, and seeing how upols HQ is in Nazareth which is a couple miles away, I've seen quite a few jeeps with the raptor liner. I bet it really grinds your gears, that on jf's home page in the articles section there's a raptor liner how to. Yet no mention of monstaliner huh guess im not the only supporter of the Brits.

I never remember using the word crap regarding any competitive product other than Herculiner. Was attempting to make a joke that obvoiusly failed.

And I rarely get to the JF home page since our vendor thread is where my focus is with over 7K posts and coming up on 300K views. I think next year for the big JF giveaway we will offer up some sense of humor in paint cans

You must be pretty busy right now. I've been waiting on a quote for a while now (you asked me to contact you when I was ready to order and I have been trying to do that).

Your site says that you ship to Canada ... am I better off just going there and forgetting about the jeepforum discount?

Thanks

Three "missed" PMs.

Don't worry about it. I will seek out other options instead.

i dont remember the name of the spray can bedliner i used but it faded to very light grey within a few months.



instead of sanding it down and trying something new i just sprayed over it with gloss black rustoleum and it has stayed pretty much the same color for 2 years now. ive only touched it up after scratching it offroad and when i modified it to work with my winch setup



crappy old cell phone pics, best i can do at the moment.

reguardless of what you do, its a bumper made for heavy duty abuse. its going to get scratched, might as well make it easy and cheap to touch up.

First of all, the 2nd pic in your original post is a Rigidco bumper. I have the same one with a smaller tube. (new JCR bumper looks like a direct copy of the Rigid FbG...)

Second, my Rigidco was painted with Duplicolor bedliner and it's fairly durable and has a light texture to it. Dunno about cleaning because I never clean my Jeep haha. When I started modding the bumper, I ended up using textured rustoleum to patch up the paint because I didn't to worry about the prep of bedliner again. Looks great and is super easy to touch up when some gets scratched off.

Third, I had AJ's sliders that go under the rocker panel. They were pretty much impossible to use for a step because they were up so high compared to the roofline. Anytime I used them as a step, I'd hit my head getting in the Jeep. Might be easier with much shorter people, but not sure. The JCR sliders have the step bar even higher, meaning it'll be completely useless as a step. Your kid probably won't even be able to step up onto it and it might even make it harder for them to get in the back door. Then again, your XJ is much shorter than mine, so your results may vary.

Fourth. I originally ordered rectangular fogs but they sent me round ones. I like the round ones better I think. Also, don't mount them up on the grill guard, looks kinda dumb IMO. I did it at first and then took em off. Eventually welded on much lower and wider mounts which look a lot better.

Bleh


Better

Go on eBay and order some raptor liner, the Brits are more than happy to take your money as they were to take mine.

Thanks for the help! I needed some quick so I bought a gallon while I was in the city. I will see how far I can get on it this weekend - we got some snow so working in the garage might be the way to go.
