My friend is actually doing this tomorrow on his Yota. I imagine having Rhino Liner do it would cost a ton, but you can do it with roll on kits your self for a couple hundred.

I don't think it would look all that good painted all around the car. Maybe on the fenders and bumpers, but I don't see the benefit of painting the whole vehicle with it.

If you are going to do the whole thing, at least get an undercoating gun and a compressor.. it'll look loads better for a marginal amount of additional effort.

I saw an old bronco fully rhino (well line-x) lined. Looked awesome, had to be virtually bulletproof. I have been contemplating this with a '79 Bronco project of mine..... Not quite ready to do it to my Rubi though.

i had the lower half of my 94 toyota p/u like that, when mud got on it, it was hard to get it all off. after a wash it looked like clay dust was all over it. i used the roll on herkuliner. i may have not had enough psi out of my presure washer. good luck with it.

The RhinoLiner company in my area quoted me around $900 to do the entire external body of the Unlimited - that included all the work of for bolts and hinges, removal/reinstallation of mirrors, fenders, etc.

This is my friends business here in Indianapolis. Just to give everyone an example of what can be sprayed (Line-x). The green jeep is mine, if you scroll through the pics the red bronco belongs to my friend and has a completely line-x exterior. He has done several vehicles like this most recently a dodge ram that the owner was tired of hail damage for the 2nd time and spent like $2000 to do the whole outside of the truck.....in some ways cheaper than a good paint job. He has done jeeps for people who are tired of scratched paint from trail riding. Hope this answers some questions as to what you can spray!

I just finished putting the second coat of Herculiner on the interior of my Jeep and HIGHLY recommend this stuff. I'm not sure how long it would take to do the exterior but would think you could do it for a couple hundred bucks.

I saw an XJ fully coated in the either Rhino or Line-x at the boat sport and travel show here in indy, personally i thought it looked pretty cool. One thing that kinda had me wondering though (I could be very off base on this though) it could add some weight to your truck. I picked up an empty coke can coated in the stuff and its not light thats for sure. That said i have it on the interior and i absolutley love it. And to clarify Rhino doesn't make DIY kits, most guys on here use the Herculiner DIY kits.

My first Jeep was a beat-down XJ.
I Vortexed the whole thing. Turned out ugly as sin,,,,but tough as hell.

Here's an old thread I did:
