Monstaliner Write Up - 2006 LJ

Alrighty.. so i ordered the kit last week. According to UPS i should have the kit next week on Tuesday. So with that, tomorrow i want to get some of the "easy" things out of the way.

My plan is i want to remove the passenger seat, the rear seat, rear seat belts, bolts, center console, etc. all so that next weekend i wont have as much to take out and hopefully get it done faster.

I'm curious about the carpet and my amp/sub/wires. If i take the carpet out will the heat on the floor have any affect on the amp, sub, or wires running to both of them? I just don't want to take the carpet out and have any of that get melted to the floor!

I'll do my best to take pictures along the way.. because as the saying goes..


-EDIT-

And by the way.. heres some shots of what the liner is going into







No wheeling shots yet.. just got back from vacation. Got the lift installed a week before that so i havent gotten the chance to go out yet with the long arms

Well im just referring to the bare metal of the tub being in contact with the wires until i can line the jeep next weekend

I'm also only thinking about takeing pictures of the prep / applying the liner. I don't think its really all that necessary to take pictures of the strip down.. that has already been pretty damn well covered by LuckRider (http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/mo...ite-up-901675/)

It wont hurt the wires. I know because my jeep didnt have carpet when I got it. I went without carpet for probably a year and a half before i put a liner on mine and it never affected the wires one bit.

Alright, so heres pictures of what i did today. Won't have any more updated pictures until atleast next weekend. I decided to leave my center console in for convenience.

I didn't want to post any pictures of doing the tear down.. because really a trained monkey could take apart the interior of a jeep. Its very basic stuff.. if you can turn a wrench you can take apart your jeeps interior. Like i said above, LuckRider has already done a very nice job on documenting the tear down of the interior.

I'll also add that with my expierence of the tear down.. when you go to remove the bolts that hold the rear seat brackets in place, BE CAREFUL! These suckers are in the jeep TIGHT. Your muscles say PUSH HARDER HARDER HARDER but your brain tells you if you do that you will strip the bolt! Make sure you use the correct size torx heads on every single bolt or you will be stripping the bolt heads (i did use the correct size to clarify).







Heres some advice i took from LuckRider's thread. Tieing up as much of the seat belt as i could to make the re installation easier:



Lastly, i have a question. For the people who have installed Monstaliner, or any bedliner for that matter, what did you do to all this rubbery stuff on the floor that is every where? I'm assuming that this is the seam sealer. Did you guys just scuff this stuff up with sand paper and roll the liner right over it? Or did you remove it with a chizzle?

This is what im talking about..

Sorry it took so long for me to get to your question. I was visiting my cousin today. No problems with the wires. I drove for about a week without an interior. I believe the wires touch the tub bare under the carpet anyway.

The only part where that might be a concern is the transmission tunnel, and that does not get hot enough to melt wires, and you should not have any running on it anyway (at least on the sides of the hump where it gets hot).

As for the seam sealer, yep, just scuff and clean. The monstaliner covers and sticks to it amazingly well. I have seen a couple of people remove it, but I really don't think the look is worth the effort, and it really does provide a nice layer of protection for the metal.

I'll also add that my plan is to line the door jam openings and the side rails of the jeep. On the inside of the jeep i won't line all the way up the side walls of the jeep just because i think it would be to difficult to deal with all the mounting holes of my rocker panels and corner guards. I was just also thinking to myself that i might want to do the part of my half doors that comes in contact with the soft uppers. The soft uppers rub on the half doors and wears away the paint. Every so often ive been throwing on touch up paint. So maybe i'll scuff that part up and line it

This is what im talking about you can see on the right side all the mounting bolts for my gen right armor:



So i'll do just as LuckRider has done here.. but also do the rails of the jeep.

I also did the top rail this time, and the entry gap. The top rail looks really nice with the liner on it, and has not interfered with the soft top at all. The hard top will be going on when it gets colder, and you could see where it was abused before from the top being put on/taken off.

Ok guys, i thought i'd get a shot of all the supplies. Here you go:

The monstaliner kit itself. This is the one gallon kit:



The supplies i bought. Bought an extra brush, 1 1/2" blue tape, 2 sanding blocks (100 grit), some 80 grit sand paper, a mini 2" roller incase i decide to d o the side walls, the MEK, and a paint tray.



I may or may not use all the supplies, what ever i dont use im gonna take back to lowes. I think the sanding blocks may be easier to use then the supplied sanding pads. We'll see how they work.



I might have to cut down one of the roller pads to work on that little 2" roller, we'll see.

Tomorrow i'm gonna finish stripping the interior, clean it, scuff it, clean it again (water/soap), mask off what i want to mask off, and then saturday ill MEK it and line it.

just one thought, I saw you taped off your rear roll cage. I did mine this way as well. Do yourself a favor and line the rear cage up to the pads, itll look cleaner.
