I had done my 04 tj (the entire vehicle) with rustoleum rattle can bedliner. being i used to be on the autobody business i know the importance of proper prep and that is truly the key. The stuff is basically indestructible. much thinner than linex or similar products but nothing seems to remove it except smashing my jeep into a concrete divider which in actually broke the bond between the factor paint and the metal. Even the body shop was impressed when it got there he said he was curious and tried to scrape it off in a few spots and failed. it also bonds well to plastic, we did the bumpers, grill and fender flares on my buddy's liberty and it survived a collision with a telephone pole. i have line-x in my pickup and i love it too, ad i think i would recommend it for high impact and high traffic areas like a pickup bed but the rustoleum stuff sure has its uses too such as lining the tub of a jeep and preotecting the grill from rock chips. i will work on getting pictures of my jeep. i think my buddy still has some.

I know it is kinda dirty to bump my own thread, but it got alot of interest at fist and then died off. Anyone else have any photos or success/horror stories that may be helpful or entertaining to others?

Monstaliner will give greater film thickness than Raptor which will work to deaden sound better.
Both are UV stable. Monstaliner will give better traction because you can't get this depth of texture from Raptor.
Spraying also requires that you do extensive masking to protect the rest of the vehicle.




Here's a link to this complete install without the final photos yet.

your tub had enough exposure to turn the Herculiner? Was it exposed that much or is the product that fragile to UV exposure? If it's the latter I would think that Herculiner would be a certain no-no for an uncovered truck bed.

That Monstaliner looks great, but every one who endorses a product says it's great. Micheal Jordan never says that Haynes underpants ride up your crack and that Nike shoes are poorly made... I'm just sayin'

Not looking to start a fight with "magnetman", but if me or someone else is going to shell out $100-$200 and the man hours of prep and application, I would like to know that the product I am using is the best one for my application.

Looks great! I have personally used raptor, and although it requires masking spraying is much easier to do than masking as far as application goes. Is monstaliner sprayable?

Here is my xj bumpers with Upol.



I also have it on the lower doors. It has held up great! Only problems have been where the rockers are rusting from the inside out, and I dropped the bumper while the bedliner was still curing.

I'm not endorsing Monstaliner. Our company manufactures the product. I frequently do projects for local truck or jeep owners so I can photo and video the process for training purposes. That S-10 was just done last Friday and it was worth posting photos.

Fact is that I really never spent any time in this Paint & Body section and I see you guys kicking around bedliner. Monstaliner is the Ferarri of DIY bedliners with Herculiner as the Hundai.

This thread below has been running on JEEPForum since October 09 and we've been selling the product all over the country. Over 90 kits to JeepForum members.

That looks very good.
Yes Monstaliner is sprayable with a 10% reduction of MEK.
In the can, the stuff is very thick because it was designed to be rolled.
There are no particles in the coating so nothing to settle and the texture is extremely uniform from start to finish.
The texture is created only by the rollers.

This is Monstaliner sprayed. Photos are way too close to see what it really looks like.
Don't have others right now. In the next few weeks we plan to spray a pickup bed and take more shots during install and after.

Here's my pretty in-depth write-up, shows you everything prep and all:

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/my...ghlight=raptor

At the time that I chose the Raptor liner, there was no Monstaliners(or at least wasn't advertised here), if I were lining my Jeep now it would be pretty hard to make a decision

...

Man a lot has changed since 2008... I've gotten fat and married, and the Jeep has gotten larger at the same rate as I did

I was reading some of flatlander757 write-up (very good by the way!)

A very distinct difference between Upol Raptor and Monstaliner is that Monstaliner has AT LEAST an 8 Hour Pot Life once components are mixed where Raptor is maybe 1 hour.
