Anybody ever try putting Monstaliner or other good bed liner over Herculiner?

It is getting to the point that I am tired of the look and feel of the Herculiner in the floorboard of my Jeep and was wondering if anyone had applied a better liner material that is UV stable over their existing bed liner. I am curious as to how well it will adhere and the longevity.

Thanks,

Tom

Are you saying that Monstaliner is a good bed liner? If so, that's the best joke I've heard in a long time.
If I could find an easy way to remove this crapola from the interior of my CJ7, I would. This stuff is a death trap waiting to happen. Try having the slightest amount of sweat or water on the bottom of your feet and trying to walk on it. My 6 year old neice almost bit my roll bar from slipping on this junk.

Monstaliner is junk and so is their Chasis Saver...........

I'll be glad when fad of bed lining CJ interiors is over. Looks like crap in pretty short order, impossible to clean.

That said, go find a Line X dealer. That's the only bed liner that is really worth anything.

I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

I can't imagine that Monstaliner would be any more slick than a painted floor pan. I was hoping for something a little more constructive than that.

Nope. He summed it up pretty well.

I didn't put it in or on my CJ. I got some and tried it out before I thought about trusting a used car salesman. I put it in the Texas sun for almost a year and it did not hold up like I thought it would.

Getting ready to do the same test with raptor liner.

Whelp, I gave my input and feedback from an incident that happened with this product. Not sure how that wouldn't help you with your decision? Anyways, best of luck to you and if you're looking for certain information on a product, make sure you let us know prior. That way i wouldn't have wasted my time responding.......

With the Herculiner that I already have in the floorboard of my jeep, I am looking for something to go over it that will help tone down the very rough texture, give it some UV protection and make it look a little better. I was mainly looking for how well it would adhere to the herculiner. Since the herculiner is so heavily textured, no matter what brand of bed liner I put over it, it will not be slick when wet.

If you're going to apply anything over someone else's product it's best to just give them a call and ask questions. You can take any of the bedliner off though, or undercoating for that matter. Just use aircraft stripper on it. I did that to the bottom of my tub and it worked great.

Even the safer Citristrip I found at Home Depot worked great at removing my Herculiner.

They are all urethanes and they all stick to just about anything pretty well. I put a similar coating made for waterproofing roofs on my deck/garage roof and it stuck to anything it touched - dirty shovels, dirty hose, etc. Very difficult to get off. I am sure it would stick to herculiner.

I would think something like Line-x would be better, as it would be professionally done and have a warranty.

As for the comments about the dad of doing it, honestly I think it'd hold up better than the paint did in mine. The dirt between the floor mats and the tub took the paint right off, and if I have anything in on the floor it has the tendency to scratch thru the paint. I just want something smooth, so that dirt, sand and mud easily rinse out and not get caught in a textured coating.

Line-X is certainly not smooth.

I intend to do mine with Rustoleum bedliner. It is fairly tough, fairly smooth, cheap, and easy to touch up.

That's the trouble with any liner. None of them are smooth, and they all look dirty after awhile, and you can't get them clean.

Unfortunately I think your best bet will be getting a needle gun or stripper and taking it back down to metal and cleaning it up good and replacing it with one that is UV resistant. Just my opinion.

I've seen some bed liners sprayed over existing ones in actual truck beds. You can see the layers when the tailgate is lowered sometimes. Anyways, it seems to work fairly well. I think they key (as with any paint/finishing work) would be to prep it properly. Make sure it's free of any contaminants and such.
