    Default I need.. er... uh.. some advice

    Hey guys..

    I've been planning ripping out the carpet in he TJ...and then lining it with rhino liner or equivilant. I saw my buddy do it himself with his YJ and it looked pretty good. I'm replacing the seats soon, so I was gonna knock it out when I pull the seats out.

    1. Is it worth paying for the install, or doing it myself? (keep in mind the pride factor...I like to do eveything I can to her myself)

    2. Is the rhino liner the best option?

    Any advice is money! Thanks,

    I.C.C.

    Herculiner is only 99$ a kit at quadratech and looks just as good IMO.

    I'm torn. I stripped my CJ down to bare metal, and used Durabak (the UV block is already mixed in - and it comes in colors). The texture is kwel looking. For the interior though, it is nonforgiving, in a hard scratchy way. The Rhino liner will give you the rubbery feel, along with the protection you are looking for.
    I hope this helps.
    Later, T.J.

    POR-15 can be brushed on and dries smooth. It also protects against rust, and can stop any rust that's already started.

    POR-15 is truly the bomb diggity. I did my uncles CJ with Herculiner and it turned out great, the only "trouble area" was on the driver side floor pan wearing off in about a year due to heavy foot traffic around the pedals.

    I say rock some Herculiner or Por-15 and do it yourself. When it wears through just throw another coat on the drivers floor pan. The rest of the coating in your tub will probably outlast the vehicle.

    I used the $99 but on sales herculiner from pepboys. Took 2 days - a day to rip everything out and tape, yes spend time to tape. Then 3 coats with a 4th on drivers side floor and rear floor. Works great last 2 years, wouldnt do any thing different. Looks decent. Just put it on with a roller.

    Here's my writeup on the herculiner install:
    http://www.militaryjeepers.com/commu...ead.php?t=2647

    Probably work best if you have 3 full days to do this.
    Day 1- strip and prep
    Day 2- lay down the herculiner and let sit over night
    Day 3- reinstall everything

    They key is prep work. I've seen herculiner fall out within a few months and look like garbage... they probably didn't take the time to sand everything down properly and clean it out.
    I wanted to go with a rhinoliner type spray in, but just can't justify the $500 or more it would cost to have it done. I purchased the 1 gallon kit and an extra 1/2 gallon bucket. I layed down quite a bit more layers on the front floor boards to help with the heat.

    It's been almost a year now and is still holding up great. No fading that I can tell. I put a couple coats of uv protectant on after the herc dried. I'll probably put another coat on this summer some time just because.

    We used non skid on a buddies YJ. That stuff is pretty gnarly and is not going anywhere. Just sucks when you re-install everything and the wrench slips. Like running your knuckles on a cheese grater.
