I've been thinking about doing the lower rocker panels of my truck...

Haven't pulled the trigger on it though.

this is what I have been thinking of + fender flares.

Is it impossible to wash with a regular rag?

I don't have pics, but I wrench for a living. I ended up having the inside tray and drawers of my Snap On tool carts sprayed. I noticed on previous tool carts, throwing tools, spilling various fluids, etc... takes a toll on the finish of the tool carts.

I also used the generic Dupont spray can of bedliner on some ammo cans. I sprayed the inside and the bottom with an inch or so up from the bottom of the can as well.

On my 08 Sierra, I had the rockers, the corresponding inside 1.5" of the doors, the door sills, the wheel wells, and the N-Fab bars. Looked great and I frequently got very positive comments on how good it looked. I'll see if i can find pics later. (black truck)
On my Xterra, I had the rear (aftermarket) swingarm bumper, the rear corners (plastic step area) and the roof done. The bumper and corners were done in black. The roof was colormatched and done so when I throw gear up there, I won't end up with scratches and rust (no pics at this time). I got the rock sliders done in black too. I'm going to get the rockers, inside edge of the doors and sills colormatched, and front aftermarket bumper(when I get one) done. I was thinking about getting the flared fenders colormatched, but havent decided yet.

Same here, I Herculined the insides of the drawers and the bottom of my Snap-on road box. ETA pics of drawers.





The Herculiner on the bottom really works well at keeping the box from sliding, especially since the bed is lined as well.






Paint is Krylon camouflage from Walmart, it's held up amazingly well over the past 18 months or so of mostly being in the back of the truck in the sun & rain. When I redo it I'm using Monstaliner on the whole thing, maybe I'll try 6-color desert camo.

I also plan on doing the complete inside of the tub on my Jeep in Monstaliner someday.

No. Lizard skin is a good spray on sound dampener. I am very pleased with it on a vehicle interior. I just bought 2 more gallons of it for my next project.

U-Pol Raptor is a spray on bed liner product that I have used twice. Easy to spray, and you can buy tintable product. You must have a good compressor to spray it. I just bought another kit to spray the underside of some Model A fenders to prevent star cracks/dings from rocks. ($100 per kit)

Amazon sells both products

Is that very durable? I have been considering lining the tub of my JKU, mainly due to the increased noise since removing the carpet. Can it handle dog claws and rocks?

Uhm yes, that's awesome.

To get it that dark, did you have to pay for some UV or special coating? If it gets that black and stays that black, I would say a little extra $ is well spent.

Truck is in the shade. Rear quarter panel/bumper is in the sun and looks like the typical dark grey.

Just guessing but that looks like the standard stuff. Would match my teflon AR rims perfectly.

Good timing. I have a well-used piece of commercial fitness equipment I picked up from a local reseller a while back and have been thinking about coating it with some sort of bedliner-type substance. The original paint is shot, and it's making my basement gym look bad.

This pic makes it look much nicer than it really is....




Are there DIY liners that are worth using?

I wouldn't say it's tacky on cloth but a brush will clean it better, especially if it's caked on or dried mud.

A cotton cloth will leave fibers all over it too, especially if it's new. A nylon brush would be best IMO.

Along with the bed, I had the rear wheel wells on my Ford Raptor Line-X'ed. It has help up very well; after 9,000 miles (much of which has been high speed dirt and gravel) it still looks brand new. It also matches the OEM running boards perfectly. I decided to do this because I wasn't too impressed with the original finish, it was pretty thin paint which would have damaged easily.

I had the dirt bike wheel holders coated when I did the bed of my truck.
Cost me $120 to have that done.

That's the first Line-X I have ever had done and it's the best lining I have ever had done.
If I can ever afford a new truck again that's the first thing I will have done.

Did you have to remove the paint before you did it? Or just sprayed over it? Do it yourself?

I know absolutely nothing about this stuff but the thread is making me consider it for a few projects.

Oh and I'm going to need more pictures of that Raptor. Love those things.

Cant speak for matt33, but on my truck, they just scuffed the paint so the LIne X will adhere, they dont remove it completely. There are DIY bedliners out there and people have had success with it. ITs all in the prep work. The DIY is very messy, I went with LIne X over rino lining because Rino is softer and can have a "Sticky" feeling and I didnt want that feeling on the inside of my truck, Line x is harder but also allows things to slide around more, so something to consider. If I had a pickup truck, LIne X would be the first mod I would do to it.

DT is correct. The Line-X dealer sanded the paint to scuff it, but he didn't go down to bare metal. I paid Line X to spray the bed and rear wheel wells. None of the do it yourself jobs I've seen seem as nice, thick, or as durable as Line X. I also like Line X much more than Rhino and the other professional spray-on bedliners I've seen. Most Line X dealers in eastern PA charge around $450 - $500 for the bed. The WW's were another $150.

I don't have any high quality pic's, but I'll post a few of what I have below. I don't abuse my Raptor, but I also don't hesitate to take it camping and exploring many miles out some pretty remote state forest "roads". I also live on a three mile long hilly, curvy dirt road. The truck gets filthy; I rinse, and repeat.

I used U-POL Raptor liner several times. Probably bought 4 kits total and saved myself thousands of dollars. I've done our ranch truck ('93 Silverado long bed) bed, roll bar, bed rails and front bumper with one kit. My rocker panels, front and rear Ranch Hand bumpers, fender flares and NFab steps with a bottle left over (03 F250 short bed). My brother in laws truck bed and bed rails (06 F150 short bed) with one bottle left over but we put it on pretty thick.
My cousin sprayed his entire Yamaha Rhino with one kit.
I've sprayed trailers, off road lights and who know what else. That stuff is VERY comparable to LineX. And literally impossible to mess up unless you're a dumbass. I love the stuff and think it looks great. I will try to get some pics up soon.
You can get it off of Amazon for $100.
I barely did any prep work to any of the jobs and its still holding up strong after 2 years on the F250. A little less time on the rest of the jobs.

Here are some shots of my truck. I had Line X do the bed years ago. I used Gator guard on the front and rear bumpers, the rocker panels and inside the doors (also under the fender flares as they were rubbing through the paint). I did the chrome nerf bars, the fender flares, and part of the replacement grille too (not on truck). Prep was the key, lots of sanding and super clean before applying. It has held up fine even on the plastic fender flares and grille which I sanded really rough. I put quite a few thin coats on the nerf bars, fender flares, and bumpers probably 5 coats instead of 2 thick coats. It worked really well this way.

I regularly spray diesel down the side of my truck when filling up and the rocker panels have held up fine. The ranch truck we sprayed regularly sees the most abuse a truck can get. Diesel, gas, giant rocks, gravel, t-posts, its chipped up in a few places but it still looks great. If you sprayed it on thick it wouldnt chip. We were trying to save some extra bottles to do the roll bar and bumpers.
I've had line-x for 10 years in the bed of the F250 and my father in law spilled GALLONS of gasoline in the bed a few weeks ago and it started to bubble. Literally been the only problem Ive had with LineX. But if I had to do it over again I would save the money and do the Raptor Liner.

two things:

any idea how much weight this adds if you did the whole Jeep or truck?

anyone remember when many Japanese cars had something similar to applied to the rocker panels? However, they usually painted over it and the whole thing didn't seem as tough. This is probably late 80s / early 90s.

Based upon the raptor liner bottles we get with the liner in it.....the entire kits probably weighs about 5-6 pounds. That's the box, plastic bottles, hardener and spray gun. It wont magically gain weight once you spray it on so probably 4-5 pounds. I imagine the LineX is a little more since it goes on much thicker. If you did a whole vehicle I couldn't see it being more than about 20-30 pounds. I've heard arguments that it adds 200-300 pounds to a vehicle. They must have a lead additive in theirs.

Nato fuel cans, bed lined and then date of refill masked and over sprayed in flat tan. When I dropped them off, they were only going to do the bottom half's. Which is all I wanted, but they had a break down in comms in my favor. Basically did the entire exterior except the actual fill neck.

If you did a whole vehicle I couldn't see it being more than about 20-30 pounds. I've heard arguments that it adds 200-300 pounds to a vehicle. They must have a lead additive in theirs.

anyone remember when many Japanese cars had something similar to applied to the rocker panels? However, they usually painted over it and the whole thing didn't seem as tough. This is probably late 80s / early 90s.

How would this fair as an undercoating and under wheel wheels? And do I need the kit with the spray gun I assume?

It has held up fine even on the plastic fender flares and grille which I sanded really rough. I put quite a few thin coats on the nerf bars, fender flares, and bumpers probably 5 coats instead of 2 thick coats. It worked really well this way.

Things are STOUT!!! 3/16 and 5/16" steel. Most on market are 1/8". The front with the winch on it is pushing 450 lbs though. Too heavy for a 1/2 ton.

Im sure it would do great as an undercoating if you prepared it good enough. The underside takes a good beating. Wheel wells would be a better application. 3M makes an undercoating that we use at my shop. We coat frame rails and suspension components. That stuff might be easier. It comes in an aerosol can.

But yes you need the kit with the gun. I have used the same gun with 3 kits. I bought just the kits after I bought the first gun. I just clean the gun really well after each use. I just stick the feed tube in paint thinner and pull the trigger until it comes out clear.
