i will be doing the bed of my 05 dakota i just purchased this summer. from my experience with the liner inside my jeep it is plenty good for a light duty bed liner. it will chip if you start tossing sharp heavy stuff in there, but then again what won't. i have hauled transmissions, engines, firewood, and a million other things in the back of my yj and have only had a few scrapes appear.

Same thing with a new windshield frame, paint it separately and install install and then paint it all together?? I wonder specifically about the thickness of the paint and would it make installation a PITA more so on the windshield frame than hood hinges.

Also, one or two gallons to do the whole thing; tub, hood, fenders, and grill??
yes paint the hardware separately. use anti seize to put your bolts back in. the antiseize that gets under the countersunk part of the head keeps the liner from sticking to the bolt heads if you ever remove them. my 94 yj was among the first to be completely coated in ML and was the first to be coated in colored ML. in the few years it has been on there i have taken the hood hinges, stock mirror mounts, and the door hinges have all been removed a couple times. i have never had an issue with the liner peeling.

EDIT: 2 gallons for the entire exterior.

^^ good to know, i just havent seen anyone actually use it as a bedliner yet, and was wondering of its durability. Its more of a permanent type of thing, so i just would like sone re assurance.

I believe Monstaliner is a vendor on several of the truck forums, and has been longer than they've been around JeepForum. If you read some of magnetman's early posts you'll see where he mentions the whole Jeep thing being more of an afterthought. If you search there I'm sure you'll find plenty of reassurance.

I'm sure someone has asked this ready but with 641 pages that's a lot of reading.

I am Interested in spraying this product but wonder about final thickness with spraying something you have to thin first? Will you still get 40mil thick from spraying the whole kit? What about rolling the first coat and spraying the second?

I'm no longer a vendor on any truck forums, they all bored me talking truck beds and diesels

I like you guys much better, more excitement and diversity here and the truck people find us easily in search.

mike_breaker_5 summed up the truck bed thing pretty well and the most important thing is not to try comparing Monstaliner with spray-in liners. When I say spray-in I mean NON DIY products, anything you must bring to an installation shop. DIY liners will not hold up to what spray polyurea (line-x types) will withstand. If you repeatedly dump gravel, throw 2x4's with protruding nails, bricks, etc. ML will get scratched and gouged easier than a spray-in. ML is a weekend warrior pickup bed liner, jeep tub liner, awesome exterior DIY coating. There are many pickup beds out there with ML in them but this market has evolved for us much faster and has been much mure fun.

That said... this thread is approaching 10,000 replies

We're going to need to celebrate soon

The amount of reducer added to ML for spray is appx 3% (4 oz MEK to 128 oz of liner)

40 mils is achieved by not pushing the gallon past 60 total sq ft in 2 coats

It's my opinion, more material is wasted by rolling (lost in the roller and in the roller pan)

If you're set up to spray I would not bother rolling first coat just watch your coverage for maximum thickness.
If doing a 2 door tub, you only have 60 sq ft so you want to spray 1 light coat so you still see a little of the surface showing and then use remaining material on 2nd coat
