    Default rhino liner vs line x

    When jeep designed the jk they put very little thought into the carpet, the pad is like a sponge. so i need to get my wifes jk rhino lined or line x. Does any body know which is better/what the prices are? And no she wont go for herculiner(i did that to her old 98tj) she says here jk is too new for it. just want some info.
    If it can't be fixed with 100 MPH tape, 550 cord, zip strips, and a hammer it can't be fixed

    I did the pep boys herculiner on my TJ and I think I did a good job for the price but then again its damp right now as I forgot to put the cover on when the rain started. may sound stupid as I dont know how much off road it expects but Herculine it then get some indoor out door carpet - without the padding and using the factory as a template replace the carpet. you get best of both worlds.

    I looked at both but have yet to get it done.
    The Rhino is thicker and flexible and runs about 550 if you remove the seats and carpet.
    Line-x was 450 (once again if you remove the seats/carpet) but I've heard that its not very flexable and tends to chip if you get a dent.

    I used 4 cans of $7 krylon (i think) spray bedliner from autozone. If it gets messed up, I just spray it again. I'm only trying to keep rust away.

    Price is going to depend on 2 things...

    1. Is your wife's JK a 2-door or 4-door?
    2. Are you going to strip the interior yourself or have the shop do it?

    I had the interior of mine hit with Line-X. I LOVE IT! It's hard to beat their reputation and a lifetime warranty.

    A good price for a 2-door would be $600. Look to pay about $800 for a 4-door...and that's if you strip it yourself (which I would recommend).

    Here are 2 pictures of mine with Line-X...

    Damn...I don't think the pix are working. Maybe something is wrong with photobucket...who knows? Anyhow, perhaps they'll start working later.

    Most of the local automotive paint suppliers have a product called Hippo-Liner, you need access to a compressor, an undercoating gun $30. they can mix it to match your paint, between mixing and buying the product, about $125. a little prep, mask it off and shoot. Looks great, is tough, but it does not have the softer texture like lineX

    hmm, never heard of that. We just herculined my rig a couple of weeks ago, but it would have been nice to check out the hippo-liner as another option. Thanks for posting.

    No contest LineX is the best in the biz. It's UV stable, more durable, and looks 100% better. Rino usually looks like a couple 3 yr olds sprayed it on.

    I had Line X put in my pickup bed three years ago. It still looks good and have had no problems with it. I asked about the inside of my YJ and they told me between $500-$550 if I took everything out. With my Jeep being an 88 I think I will do it myself and put the extra money into other mods.
