Spray-on Liners

Hey everybody.

After getting my Jeep rained in twice in two days <damn Chicago summers and freak thunderstorms> I've been looking at getting a spray on liner (Rhino or Line-X) I have a few questions though...

1. How is the sound-deadening? I know the carpet helps alot to keep noice down in the cabin, and I don't want to lose that because it's personally loud enough in there as is.

2. Mainly for my gf who sits in the passenger seat, but does the lining help keep the floorboard above the exhaust from getting too hot? I've touched the metal down there after a long trip and that stuff gets hot even on the inside.

3. What type of cost am I looking at (if I strip the jeep)?

4. Are there any issues that I'm not thinking of?

Thanks for the help!

I dont know about the effects it has on sound and heat but there are alot of posts about this throughout this forum. Line-X seems to get better marks. I priced my Jeep (stripped by me on arrival) at $575 from my local Line-X dude

I'm sure it helps with sound deadening. Isn't linex alsmot a 1/4" thick? If so thats like having carpet down. Should help out greatly and I would think it would also act as an insulator from the heat.

I use durabak, an alternative to Line-X, and have noticed definite sound reduction and the heat doesnt feel to bad either. I put the carpet back over it after about a week though, cus of the color of the liner...

Cost ya 5-600 bucks for the professional, spray on job. Mine was rolled on (by me!) and cost 105.00 for the durabak, and about 15 dollars for incidentals like sandpaper, xylene, brush, drop cloth...etc. I am glad I did it myself: lots of dough left over for lift and stuff....

I Herculined mine about a month ago. Sound reduction is very good. The floor does not feel cold but it is definately bearable. I highly recomend this sort of mod. I did mine myself for under $100.

A Line-X dealer close to me quoted $500 for a pre-stripped jeep w/ the tailgate off, but present.

I don't know about this, but it may help if you're going to roll over some land mines Must Read

I had Line-X put in my 05 Jeep within the first week of buying it. I couldn't be more pleased.

Sound: I can not tell the difference between sound of my Jeep with carpet and my Jeep with Line-X. It is at least as quiet, if not quieter.

Heat: I have noticed no problems with heat on the floorboards with Line-X. It is only warm to the touch after long interstate drives. The physical properties of the polyurea in Line-X allow it to tolerate very high temperatures, up to over 300 degrees.

Cost: Every Line-X dealer sets their own prices. Check around. I paid $475 but had to strip the Jeep myself (seats, console, seat belts, seat mounts, etc.)

Other Issues you aren't thinking of: Aside from being a quiet, tough, great looking liner; it's easy to clean with a waterhose if you pull your drain plugs.

If you can part with the cash, look no further than Line-X. The do-it-yourself liners can look good if you really take your time and put some elbow grease into the job, but they simply aren't on the same level of durability. As with everything else in life, you get what you pay for.

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
