Re: spray on bed liner ?

Just so you make an informed choice... I hear it's hot as hell in the summer when you do it. Hot enough that you won't have to use your heater in the winter. There are a lot of different products out there to do it with, but I don't have an ounce of experience with any of them. I had my truck bed lined with a Rhino spray in liner and it's holding up great.. but that would cost a bit to do inside the Jimmy. Are you wanting to do it yourself, or have it done?

Never heard of hippo, but Rhino and Line-X are good. Rhino wont let things slide and Line-X will

Re: spray on bed liner ?

I have used the Hippo liner. It works really good when rolled. You have to thin it out so much to spray it though. Duplicolor makes a spray on stuff. It comes in a square metal gallon can. Your prep has to be perfect with the duplicolor stuff though. And Hippo stuff is really really strong stuff.


DO YOUR PREP WORK!!!!!

Re: spray on bed liner ?

If its your daily driver, I'd really think twice about bedliner being the primary floor covering. I did my Suburban with Durabak, and it was real nice until summer rolled around. Front and rear A/C couldn't even keep it cool enough inside. I ended up adding insulation and vinyl flooring.

Re: spray on bed liner ?

Every once in a while i work for my uncle who owns a shop that does spray on bedliners. Prep work is key. If you prep it good it will stick, otherwise you may have problems. We spray Ultimate linings which is a sticky liner, and also Arma coatings which is harder and doesnt grip as well. Seems like the hippo is like the arma becuase its a hot high pressure spray so i think it ould work well if you did it yourself. Good luck.


Later

Re: spray on bed liner ?

I have the duplicolor in my cab, couldnt be happier. I went to north carolina this summer after i did it, i have no ac and i was fine. yes the floor gets a little warm, but i didnt notice it unless i touchedx it with my hands. It definetly does not do enough for the winter months. i live in ct, and its gettin pretty cold, i have my heat on all the time. the floor definetly doesnt keep even the regular cab hot.

I worked with a guy that melted the soles off his shoes driving to work in the summer. He had torn everything out and had it sprayed. He said it was hotter thn Haitis and he was going through shoes like crazy.

LOL... uh yeah... in CT

Try driving around all summer in 110+ degree heat, where even a good AC has trouble keeping up.. and then tell me it's not going to be hot. Just like y'all have REAL winter up there, we have REAL summers down here.

It's mainly going to depend on where you live, to know if it's going to work out or not.

BTW.. Greg Z71, if you were to fill out your profile, so we knew where you lived it would maybe help.. you been here a year and still have not bothered? [img]images/graemlins/spank.gif[/img]

Re: spray on bed liner ?
