Monstaliner vs. Linex

I plan on getting the metal cloak fenders and was going to linex them along with my tub but I've seen the new monstaliner and I thought it would save me some money. Which would you choose?

Yea it seems I would probably save a great deal of money I'm just scared after a while it will crack and flack like rhino liner. How long have you had it in you tub?

You're not gonna find a tougher liner than Linex. Period.

But it'll cost you.

Ive had it since the beginning of the summer, its been through the rain about 7 times, and ive thrown bricks and heavy stuff on it and it doesnt chip. Just dont be shy with the stuff. I layed down 2 really thick coats and there was still about a 4th left, so I coated the areas that were going to be abused by a lot of feet.

I just tried raptor liner from upol for my hardtop I was gonna linex it but I don't like how dirty linex looks after a while one of the other techs I work with has used it on bumpers and other things for a scout he was building and it looks pretty good. you have to go an auto paint store to get it and not all of them carry it youll just have to find the one that does for your area

I believe you're referring to fading or "chalking". So, just to clarify: Standard black LINE-X will fade. But, LINE-X Premium, LINE-X Platinum, LINE-X Xtra, and LINE-X Body Armour are all UV stable (like your Jeep's paint) and will hold there color much longer.

I just have a bikini top on mine. Not planning on covering in the spring and summer.

How do you care for Monsta if you're not covering it up with soft top/doors? Just spray it with a hose and light brush with soap?

I only do that when it gets dirty. This stuff (so they say) is 100% UV permanent. Hasnt faded or chalked in Texas weather yet
