Oh well. Can't see it from my house.

Then again, it can't look any worse than my Heep.

Chill out Reno ....it would be a nightmare to take off and I have no plans of that ever being a factor, and yes, it is easier to clean than rhino liner or linex type bedliners, and it will not fade and chalk like others. It doesn't have a pourus rough surface. Have you used it?? Is it easier to clean than painted surface, I'm sure it isn't- it's a Jeep...used for offroad, not to sit around and admire how pretty and clean it is. I don't worry about mud and rust like other parts of the country. This Jeep has no rust whatsoever-I have other vehicles, motorcycles, that I admire their chrome and flash. If I get tired of this, I'll just sell it and get another, it's one of many in my past and I'm sure not the last.

Moon,
The main thing here is that you like it. We're just giving our opinions so please don't take it to heart. Heck, I was razzed about putting carpet and a nice stereo system in my CJ. In the end it's my name on the title and I will do what I want and when I want. Though bed liner isn't my cup of tea on the exterior, it's your rig and if you're happy, that's all that matters.....
Please be sure to post pictures when this bad boy is put back together

Put it together, run it thru the dirt/mud and then wash it and report back. I'm curious to see how tough it's going to be to keep looking as good as it does now. I'd consider doing the same with a color that was a little less "loud" on my junker if I could beat the dirt off without too much extra elbow grease.

Hey moon,

nice work sticking to your guns despite the opinions (opinions are good, lets you see what others think) and attacks (lets not be rude, he didn't paint YOUR jeep). I probably wouldn't do my jeep in liner, but I want to take it to some shows and street drive as well as wheel it. If I were building a hill beater, I'd line it for sure.

I cant wait to see a fully assembled pic!

Cheers!

I think it looks great, even if it is monstaliner I've never used the product and probably never will. I prefer raptor liner but that's not important. Don't let them bug you I plan to spray my xj in raptor and redo the faded yellow. Good luck and keep up the good work.

90 - xj laredo- 4.5" rough country lift, 6.5" of total lift with drop brackets, zj disc brakes on c8.25, olympic winch bumper, jcr upper and lower quarter armor, IRO hack-n-tap and rock sliders and rear bumper. rugged ridge 8500lb winch. Spartan locker up front. With a jd yellow paint job, 97+ front end and bushwacker cut out flares. 35's

Looks good! Let me know how it holds up in the AZ Heat. I have only painted (spray can) my grill so far and the Monsta is growing on me. It wouldn't be too hard to strip my grill again and just line the whole thing. Monsta's site says its good from -22* to 190*. Just curious if it softens above 190* and what the desert/engine heat combination will do to it.

Wow! That sure is blue... Won't be hard to spot you on the trail.
Cleaning will be a little harder, but you won't waste a lot of time waxing it.
God bless.

Looks good! I did mine in Suicide Blonde. Some people are completely against the idea, I love it. I have heard about people waxing the finish to help facilitate removal of dirt. Mine being yellow shows grease very well. some simple green and a rag took it right off, nothing in getting stuck in crevices or anything like that. Its really not like most bedliners, and most people dont understand that. Its more like a lightly textured drywall finish.

Yes, a cruiser head at heart! I like to say that I drive a Jeep now due to Obamanomics .

Seriously like Jeeps but I wouldn't mind picking up another FJ40

Damn moon, I thought everyone on this board was pretty friendly, I hadn't seen a single flame on this forum.... until your thread... you would think that you had naked pictures of someone's wife painted on the hood of your jeep... you don't do you???? well here's to freedom... your jeep your paint... their opinions your thread...

I have a pretty clean YJ that I am thinking of doing some monstaliner on, and I am in AZ too, with a rust free 87... (oh no!!! I am the devil incarnate!!!!)

I would be interesting in hearing how durable the finish is and how it holds up to the heat this time of year. I do not plan on doing the whole jeep myself but hell more power to you that you did...

Do you have a re-assembled picture?
