I had my truck bed done by a Rhinoliner shop for over $500, then I did my own Jeep tub with a 1 gallon can of Herculiner from JC Whitney - paid about $70 or so - came with everything I needed. I'll tell you that after almost two years, its looks great and its really holding up. The only negative comment is the Herculiner is a little more sensitive to UV light, so it tends to fade. However, a shot of Armorall and it shines and darkens right up. Now the Rhino lining in the bed of my truck - I'm not going around shoveling gravel like you see in the commercials, and in several areas the lining is peeling up. I've actually fixed it with the Herculiner. So, its cheaper, you can do it yourself, and I have no complaints about it whatsoever - I'd recommend Herculiner.

The 'Do It Yourself' kits work pretty well, but they don't last as long as the Professionally mixed and 'Hot' Sprayed kind.

You are looking at $75 a gallon and a $25 worth of prep stuff compared to $750 to $2,500 for the 'Professionally' done bed liners...
Depending on what you choose and how thick you have them put it on.

Personally, I buy a gallon of Xylene (thinner), a gallon of Herculiner, and a cheap siphon type sand blaster/spray gun and go to town!

The sand blaster cleans up the rusty spots, cracks, crevices and hard to reach places, then you use it to spray the Herculiner on...
A sprayed on coat takes SO MUCH less of the product to do, gets into places you can't even begin to with a brush or roller, and you can do the entire interior in about 10 minutes...
Clean up of the gun is literally siphon spraying thinner through the gun between coats...

"Touch-Up" of Herculiner is SO EASY you won't believe it!

Do it yourself!
Prep is what makes the project work.
I have about $400 invested in Herculiner and all the products, tools, etc. to do it right, but I also did the underside of the tub and we went THICK on the final coats.

Pics & write up for our herc project start at post # 298: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/project-tub-431910/

Definitely an easy project that you can feel good about when you peel the tape off.
Make sure you use the UV coat, you don't want all that hard work looking like garbage in a few months.

i think i'me gonna do the inside of the tub. the previous owner did the entire bottom of the tub when he changed the transmition, and that is some pretty tough lookin stuff. one question though, how well does it hold up against heat. sometimes my floorboards get pretty hot when driving for a while. i also thought about repainting the hardtop with spray-on bedliner, what does anyone think??? any suggestions??? anyone tried it???

My first choice is Monstaliner. There are others I was looking at until I got interested in them and seeing how helpful they are to their customers. Customer service is number one in my book and they stand behind their products which is why I am using them on my frame up build. Monstaliner.com or you can check in the Vendor section as there is an extensive thread.

For the really budget minded, Rustoleum makes a roll on bedliner that costs about $15 a quart. I lined the entire inside of my CJ with it (bought a $2 foam roller from Lowes to do it and a brush for the corners) and it is holding up incredibly well. My jeep is a pile of crap so I figured I didn't care, but after a full summer of beating it up it is all still holding in place. Truth be told, I didn't even do any prep work other than clean the surface with brake cleaner.

A "temporary solution" that has ended up working awesome for me.

now that is what ime talkin' bout!!! $15 bucks and a couple a hours of work. i think thats what i'me gonna do. i hear all these people talking about their $800 dollar bedliners, heck if ur gonna spend that much, just wait till ur tub rots to the ground and find another on craigslist or somethin. does it work pretty good, no chunks chipping out or anything. i think im headin to wally mart here in the next couple a hours

My tub is pretty bad so after replacing about 75% of it with 16 gauge galvinized sheet metal . . . I shot it with 3 coats of Rustoleum Rubberized Undercoating out of a spray can and topped it with flat black Krylon spray paint. According to the can . . . it will stay flexible and won't crack. Works for me. . time will tell.

I'm glad a few people reconize Bubbles . . if they bring the series back . . they need to get Ricky sleeping in a CJ with Conky mounted to the hood. Back to the thread . . . I'm a realist . . I need a new tub but want the one I have water tight for the winter and that did the trick. Next spring. . body off replacement . . missed a metal tub at a swap meet for $350 by a half hour.
Everyone says glass. . but I don't want to live forever.
