It looks better than most every bedliner job I've seen, but it looks thin. I'm curious how tough and durable it is. Any folks out there been running this stuff for any length of time care to chime in about durability?

Looks great! do you know if that stuff is paintable?
I actually like how thin it looks and can be easily touched up if it gets scratched too much. Would also be easy to through the carpet in later if you want.. Very good job.

You can paint over the top of it. I bedlined my bike using Duplicolor about 3 or 4 years ago. I painted over it with a duplicolor metal flake blue (rattlecan).





Since then, I've gone back over it with bedliner. Here's how it looks now.

Thanks man I let it sit the recommended 2 minutes before the next coat. That's another reason I love this stuff; it takes no time at all to put down a couple coats and dry.

I had no idea it was paintable lol. But yeah, it is very thin; for those of you that use the cargo area of the Jeep as a truck bed you may want to go with a thicker professional liner to avoid dents, dings, and deep scratches.

For me it works fine because like you said it touches up so easy if I were to get a bunch of scratches over time it would be no big deal to fix.

'Bout 6.


Forgot to mention I've already had a chance to test it in the rain. I was driving back from my local 4 Wheel parts on Friday and I hit a pocket of Florida monsoon rain that had 95 slowing down to 30MPH.

Was running the safari top so I rolled up the windows to keep myself dry while the cargo area got poured on. The bed coating and drain plugs did their job

How much louder is the drive? Or, should I say, have you had a chance to drive it top & doors on and up and noticed any difference in road noise?

Not yet; I plan on running the safari top all summer long now. With the safari top on and the windows all up it wasn't any louder, but like you hinted the real test will be an entirely closed cab.

From what i've figured out you need to remove the 3 seats, the seatbelts, the center console? the sub? I obviously have a few questions, any adive would be great im looking into doing this, my little brother has a honda element and his came without carpets like this and im jealous... of en element... oh no.

I actually left all the wiring conduit where it was. That was another one of the benefits of working with the rattle cans, all I had to do was put on a latex glove and move the conduit out of the way long enough to spray what was behind it.

I debated on whether or not to remove the center console, I did it once before when my parking break hand broke from the cable. It wasn't hard, but I have to admit I cut a corner there and just masked it off. You can't tell it was just masked off and no one will ever know unless I have the center console removed again.

Really all I removed was the seats, and the sub. Everything else was either masked and/or pulled out of the way (you'll notice the seatbelts in the 3rd pic are wrapped around the front seats).



Pull out your carpet, throw some bed coating down and you're brother will be the jealous one :P

Looks good. Does removing the carpet make it any louder in the cab? Less sound deadening. I think I paid around $7 for the rattle cans at our local Walmart. Used it on my rails. Looks good and is also anti-slip.

Looks great! I used this stuff a lot on my 2000 ZR2 Blazer when I had it. I painted the spare tire carrier, the roof rack, the fender flares, and the rear window trim with it. It worked great for spray.
