Default Jeep owners-----Rhino Liner or Line-X

I'm thinking about coating the whole inside of my 2006 Jeep LJ so I can just leave the top off all year with just a cab cover. I figure if I coat it and leave the plugs out to let it drain and just leave the bimini with a windjammer in the "winter" or when it rains I should be good. Have any of you done this and what are the pros and cons to either? Looking specifically for the good and bad between the two options. If you have suggestions other than those they are welcome but I want it to look good, not like a brush on job.

I've got the BedTred full liner on my LJ and like it. I ran for a while with no carpet and rubber mats, but the nibs on the mats where wearing the paint out.

I just have the seating area liners. They are now offering the rear liner for LJs, going to order one to completely cover the interior.

I took my rear roll bar padding off too.

I stripped everything out of my wrangler and had the whole floor sprayed with line-x. Loved it! It worked well, I would just hose it out when dirty.

I had the interior cargo compartment of one of my Land Rover Defenders rhino lined. I liked the finish better than line-x at the time. Neither looked like a brush job but I think the rhino liner was a bit softer so nicer for the dog.

Loved the utility of it. Park on incline and hose out.

Just please god do not try to do it yourself! Jeeps are a ton of work and owners are always bringing us the aftermath of their attempts... We have two in our shop right now. Just saw your in Brandon- go see Kevin he is good.

I have seen that done and have never been a fan of the look or feel.

I would look at Speedliner Brand spray in bedliner. Much thicker than Line-X. Had my bed done on my 1998 Cummins Ram 2500. One tough liner. Surface is a little rough, but it does last. http://speedliner.com/ . -Glen

Almost impossible sir the product nature and cost make it that way.

I have done my past three trucks myself with U-Pol Raptor kits. It has taken everything I have thrown at it from rocks, dirt, four wheelers, shovel scraping, you name it. My 2500 had 170K+ on it and it held up. I have also used this stuff on my utility trailer and it has held up.

Key factor is taking your time in prep. Prep it right, the kit will perform. Period.

While I respect your opinion, you're also a Line-X dealer. You are excellent at applying your product. I've seen examples of your work on this site. A few friends had their trucks done with Line-X, and after seeing my truck, they wished they would have went with the Speedliner. -Glen
