Jeep Undercoating Opinions

Bought my jeep a little while ago and have noticed some rust underneath it. Nothing too serious but it would make me feel better to fix it before it gets any worse.
I've looked into undercoat paints a bit and so far these seem to be the top.
-Chassis Saver
-Herculiner
-Monsta Liner
-Rhinoliner
-Raptorliner

Any suggestions or opinions on which would work/is better? I want to make sure I do it right the first time.

Well, I had my undercoating done by Ziebart. It has held up fantastically. I looks shiny and new. This winter season was a pretty good test for it. They salt the roads around here and we've got quite a bit of snow this year. And not even a speck of rust or corrosion. The only issue that was troubling was the smell. But the smell dissipated after about a month. I think it was worth every penny.

I want to do my undercoating myself. To save money and so I know what is going on under there. I'm kind of stuck between herculiner, Chassis Saver, or Rustoleum undercoating.. Anyone have any experience using any of these?

Bump. I'd like to hear people opinions as well. I am planning on using a spray on bedliner for different areas on my TJ but have not planned on using it as an undercoating. I would like to do it myself as well.

Go with anything with a good rep. I got mine done for free with a gift certificate. But if I were to pay, I'd go with a good quality bed liner.

What about the duplicator bed liner spry kit for painting the unibody. I've been hearing good things about it. I just don't know how a rubberized Bedliner would hold up.

Have kept researching and to me the best option for do it yourself undercoating seems to be Chassis Saver by MonstaLiner.

As long as you prep the surface by getting off any bubbling rust you should be able to paint over it using this. Then, if you care, paint over it with a top coat of paint since it states that the color in the undercoat will fade.

I got mine done in south Texas, Corpus Christi to be exact. Without the gift certificate it was about 290-350 bucks. Steep, but wow. It's been holding up. When I clean the underside, it looks like a factory job.

If living in a snow state where the roads get salted reguluraly,i'd go with a marine coating for the fact it's made to withstand salt damage...

The biggest problem with rust in everything is not the outside where you can see it,it's inside frame rails and inside body panels where moisture and bad road salts collect and stay and then eventualy rusts out from the inside out....

I did my interior with monstaliner and will use it for the undercoating as well.. It goes on nice but it does have a smell for about a month.. If you have rust, first scrape off what you can and then use chassis saver or por 15 directly on the rusty areas and let dry a day before you put on your bedliner of choice.. The chassis saver will stop the rust from speading under the bedliner you use.. Any really tight areas i couldnt reach i would just use some 3m undercoating in a rattlecan..

I used U-pol Gravitex on the bottom of my tub. It's still a new and I haven't finished the rest of the build to be able to put the tub on yet but the stuff sprayed on great and looks good.
