which roll on liner?

Been searching and searching cant really find a solid answer... Thinking about doing my hood, rear quarter panel, front grill, roof, and rockers... Want to use a roll on or brush liner.But worried about fading, have heard that you can use gloss paint to bring back the shine. Anybody have a product they have had on the EXTERIOR of there jeep for a year or more and still like the way it looks. I want to protect my jeep but still have it look good years to come.

Thanks

Herculiner all the way. I LOVE it, we have had it on our TJ for a year + and its still comparible to the day we put it on! (we had it inside and exterior below our doors and on fenders)

Thanks, I did the tub of my old xj with herculiner and loved it. Just heard that it fades out quick outside... good to know. By the way (my wife is very computer savvy) so I had her do some kind of photo shop pics of what I wanted to do, and completely changed my mind Looked awful Impo, so just doin the rockers up to the bottom of my cladding.

Yeah we didn't venture off our rockers but still turned out nice, I'd do it again in a heartbeat!


We also bought a $80-125 bedliner gun from O'Rileys to apply ours too, worked wonders!

about 3 years ago we used duplicolor and it faded and even started to peel in spots. A year ago we put the herculiner on our rockers and loved it (didn't seem to fade noticibly) so we did our interior. But this is just my experience

Thanks, looks like herculiner! And since I still have about a half gallon left, it will save me some cash=). Got some edge lock painters tape and couple cheap brushes. Tried the roller but it sends specs every where, had better luck with a cheap brush in the past. Plus seems to get more of the texture with dabbing a brush. Will take some pics before and after.

Kind of off topic here but wondering if you guys can help me out here. Have any of you fixed rust spots and then tried to match your factory color? Live in Norther Michigan, so rust is a huge problem up here. Jeep is good condition rockers are solid (hints why I am further protecting them with herculiner). Doesnt matter if you wash your jeep every 2 weeks ,rockers rot up here... Anyways back to my question, got a couple of the normal jeep rust bubble problem areas. Roof, below and below the rear window. And would like to fix them myself (have a buddy in the body shop industry, but why pay when I can do it myself?) Has anybody had any luck fixing spots and getting the paint to match factory?
Thanks

Check out Monstaliner. There's a vendor for it on here and they give a JF discount. It also comes in like 20+ colors.

I did Herc on my truck bed a few months ago and it's already scratched through in a number of spots and faded like hell from the sun. I wouldn't waste my money on it for exterior use again.

Has anybody had any good experience with the monstaliner? Anybody have any pics of it on their vehicle? Luckily its hot out so I just redid my brakes and rotors today. Didnt start prepping the rockers yet. So this seems to be the ongoing debate... Which one holds its color the longest with out fading? Like I said earlier I have a 1/2 gallon of herculiner but do not want to put it on if there is something better that holds up longer and doesnt fade...

Maybe if you guys have any pics of different products on the exterior after a year. Please post them

Thanks

There's a ton of pictures and testimonials in the vendor thread in the vendor section and there's a picture request thread in that section with a bunch of Jeeps done inside and out in it. I've yet to see anything but positive reactions to it.

I'll be the one to say it raptor liner, you can tint it match body color if your choose all you gotta do is buy the tintable version. I have the black on my armor, rock sliders, and its holding up great. 3....2......1..... Where's magnetman

Its also cheaper the monstaliner

They'll send you free color chips up to 5 or 6.

I used Monstaliner and am very happy with it. I just used the black but it hasn't faded at all on my rockers (its been about a year so far). On a previous jeep I used herculiner and didn't like the surface (held dirt and impossible to clean) and after 6 months it was noticeably lighter in color.

Lots of people like Raptor liner too though.

Well ordered the free 6 color chips, although I think I am already sold on the predator color from monstaliner.... Jeep is the steel blue color now, so we will see when the chips get here. Kind of hard to picture the xj done in all predator green. Nervous it will look more like a teenage driver, whats your guys thoughts. Have the rough country 4.5 in lift in the hatch, brand new 32 in wrangler mts with new rims, and the stinger winch bumper should be here next week, then also ordering some bushwackers to give you a idea of what the jeep is going to look like... Be a busy man the next couple weeks=)
