I know someone who's had the interior of their JK Line-X'd. I tried Herculiner once, didn't last very long, kind of just wore away. I've had better luck with the Duplicolor bedliner product.

The Herculiner turned gray and deteriorated quicker than I would have expected.
That's exactly what happened to mine in a truck bed. I've used Duplicolor Bedliner several times, and as long as the surface is prepped well it works very well.

For as much time as it takes to line a Jeep tub and do it right, there's no way I'd go with Herculiner. The truck bed I saw it in turned rubbery and soft making it impossible to slide a heavy object across it. And you could take your finger nail and chip pieces off.

After vacuuming the carpet (that seems to not let go of dog hairs) a few times I’m starting to think about line-x’ing my tub too. Maybe this will be a winter project when I have the time to do it properly and not rush it.

I've already decided that the next time I flood the inside of my Jeep, the carpet is coming out. It's a real pain drying it all out, and Line X would be so much more practical.

I’ve already got a decent compressor and paint guns are cheap. Is there anything complicated to applying Line-X?

I don;t believe you can buy it by the gallon, and it is sprayed on hot, so special equipment is needed anyway.

yah, as Phil said, you won't be able to do the hot stuff. Which I imaginbe is the best and most durable way to go.

I saw this sometime ago Alec, not that much info but shows the process:

In my XJ, I considered doing the diy spray on liner but could not really find anything that suggested it was better then the roll on stuff. I ended up just using the Dupont roll on stuff and was pretty happy with it. It did wear down in spots and a heavy item drgged sometimes scrapes it. It was not as durable as I had hoped but they make a aresol spray can liner so I just kept one of those around and touched it up when needed. I felt it was the same or better quality as herculiner.

On the fence to spend a few hundred for line-x, couple hundred for spray diy or less then a hundred for roll on...

If the money is not a problem, getting it Line-Xed is the way to go. Strip everything out of the interior except for the driver's seat and take it to a shop that does it. I'm not 100% sure if I'm going to be keeping my Jeep for a while, or I would have done that already. It's good stuff.
