  • Carpeting Alternatives?

    Just wanted to fin out some of the alternatives to carpeting I know you can get molded plastic or rhino liner. But i here the first is a pain in the ash, and the other is very expensive. i am removing my carpeting and plan on spraying the body with Body Gaurd Plus. Which is basically an underguard for trucks. it is suppose to be rubbery, and i think a few thick coates should make for a niece interior. Plus it is paintable so i may paint it to match the seats and top (spice). Here is a website if you are interested:

    What do you guys think of this?
    Thanks.

    I'll be laying down some durabak this summer after I get my mechanicals fixed. It's a cheap DIY alternative to rhino or line-x. Probably not as durable, but it works for me. 4WD hardware sells it.

      Be careful with that rubberized stuff. Sometimes it stays a little too rubbery IMO and will scratch/rub off with abuse.

        alternative

        I bought the Xynet floor covering from 4wd last winter and am pleased with it. Cut out alot of road noise.

          He who has carpet/rubber lining in his Jeep better be sure he doesn't have ANY water leaks. This is why we see most old CJ's with rotted floors. Take the extra time and use the truck bed liner stuff.

            i'll try some before i apply it. my dad used Herculiner on our truck, and i think it is pretty crappy. it is very rough and wears off easily. I couldnt imagine sleeping on the herculiner (i took out the back seat so i can sleep in it on late night), it is worse than sand paper. one time i slid my hand on pulling out our hard top for the Jeep, and i had a huge gash on my hand. if i remember correctly my dad didnt give it eough coats. Can anyone else out there who used it correctly tell me how it is. Thanks.

              does any one have pics of durabak, herculiner, and anything else applyed. I have seen Rhino lining and it IS impressing. But as far as i know you cant do that yourself. I'd like to see what the varios types are like. Im already against carpet or molded liners because they'll trap water under them. Id love Rhino but its so GD expensive. Thanks.

                I used Herc to do the inside of my jeep. Seems fine to me. I wouldn't suggest sleeping on it or even rubbing your hand across it too hard b/c it will take skin away. I did mine right I guess. Mine has been on about 2 years now and shows no sign of coming off. Prep work is the key (and it has been discussed on this board a million times).

                Some people prefer the cheap way (Herculiner or Duraliner) and others prefer the pro route (Line-x or Rhinoliner). For me it was about budget. I spent about $150 total for mine. That included the Herc kit and all other materials used (Xlyenol, sand paper, paint stirring attachment for my drill, and an extra paint brush). I am happy with the results. One gallon kit of Herc gave enough to cover tub interior with two good coats and I still had about half a quart left over. I was going to use it to go back and touch up some areas but after it all dried it looked ok.

                Mine went in and was very shiny black. But now it is more of a light black or dark grey color... combo of dirt and fading I guess... since it is so rough you can not really clean it very well. But I use a little bit of soap and a soft tire brush to wash it out sometimes and it looks ok.

                You can check my website for a few pics of the Herc after I rolled it in. (Some close up pics in the "Early Work" section.)

                And by the way, the quote I got from the Rhino people was like $700 but that was if I did all the prep work (remove all seats and anything else in the way, sand it down to remove existing rust, and so forth). Just wasn't in my budget.

                  Rhino Lining fades - not worth the $$$

                  I had Rhino Lining sprayed in my CJ approximately 5 years ago. 2 years ago I noticed the Rhino Lining fading. Recently I found a Rhino Lining product that I painted on to restore its finish. I don't want to do this every 3 years.

                  If I were to do it all over again, I'd get Line-X instead. I haven't heard of Line-X fading.

                  If you're looking for a cheap option. Either Durabak or Herculiner. I'm not sure if either of those product fade over time.

                    My Herculiner has faded some. But still doesn't look bad to me. Looks better than RUST!!!!!

                    (And from my research before I did my liner I think Herculiner and Durabak are basically the same stuff... may even be made by same parent company.)

                        I've got Line-X in my CJ ($350) and Rhino ($400) in my 2004 F-150 FX4. Not much difference between the two. I have noticed on the Rhino that if you drag something out of the bed you will produce lighter colored scuff marks. However, in a couple of days the marks are gone, cool.
                        I have a buddy who installed Herculiner in his Ranger bed. Herculiner has a much rougher surface and fades quickly to a flat, dark gray color.

                          Another Herculiner Picture

                          Just installed my Herculiner today. Lover the red. Will hate when it fades.

                            I used dupli-color bed liner and I sprayed it on with their gun. I didn't get it real thick, but now it's really hard and starting to chip in places where prep work may have been marginal. verall, pretty happy with the cost and outcome though. I could prolly spray more on and cure most of the sins.

                              I herculined this weekend, turned out GREAT. The hard part is the prep.
