Bedliner rewiews?

Starting to prepare my 1989 YJ, so that I can coat the floorboard with spray or roll-on bedliner. Anyone have good or bad experiences with certain brands of the stuff? I hate to do this a second time!

I used Herculiner on my CJ, but you need to buy their UV coating if it gets prolonged exposure to the Sun otherwise it will fade to gray. It took 1-1/4 gallons of the Herculiner to do 2 coats on my tub, bottom portion of the roll bar, 4 wheel wells and my gas talk skid plate.

I hear nothing but great things from people who have used Monstaliner, Raptor and Durabak. The advantage to using Durabak is that they make 16 different colors and it's formulated for interiors and exteriors. I'm happy with my Herculiner, but if I did it over again, I'd probably use Durabak or Raptor.

The only advice I can give you is take your time with the prep. Remove everything - even the tub plugs and the roll bar if you can. Use a strong cleaner - like "Marine Clean" and remove ANY particles and dust before you roll the liner in. Spend the extra money on good masking tape and really mask everything off. Wear a throw-away coveralls and MAKE SURE to wear gloves, a respirator AND lay down a large tarp. Once the stuff gets on concrete, or your clothes - it isn't coming off. I used gasoline to remove it from my skin. Stick wadded-up masking tape pieces in the tub holes and any exposed threaded holes for the roll bar and seat, etc.

Don't pay for a company to spray it in. It's so much cheaper to do it yourself.

I'm thinking of spraying black bedliner on my Rock Hard off road bumpers and was wondering if they fade or turn grey from UV light. Are any brands more resistant to fading? I'm sure they all look nice when new. How about some long term reviews?

Check out Monstaliner and Durabak. Both have UV resistance. Durabak is actually made for exteriors as well and comes in 16 colors.

I used Duraliner in spray cans from Walmart (did interior and hardtop). Went on easy and I haven't had a problem with it (yet). Make sure you mask off well, overspray goes everywhere!

X2 Herculiner, I used it on my KJ and it did fade but I liked it, it was more of a flat black then. Held up great! I scratched it with my keys and it didnt do anything. Easy to apply takes a while to do all the correct prep work but its well worth it. I will be using it on my XJ.

I was pleased with the way the top came out. The windows had that old, faded purple, wrinkled up tint on them. Cleaned them all off, painted inside and out with the Duraliner. Did that 4 months ago, still not a scratch, flake, or peel anywhere.

Graffxman, now all you need to address is the fact that your tires are too big for that lift (or lack thereof).

Yep, working on that. Budget has me waiting a little, but decided on 4" springs.
Looked at SOA, body lift, add-a-leaf, etc. and decided to wait and do it right.

It does rub a little on big bumps........
