Undercoating for a used YJ tub

I currently have reached a new Jeep Milestone. On Friday the 13th, I purchase a new/used YJ tub to replace my overly worked, rust feeding CJ tub. This is something that has been a long time coming, and I want to be sure I do it right, the first time. The YJ is from an 87 and is nice and straight. It will have a fresh paint job, and tub liner before the end of the month. With the outside and the inside protected, I would really like to protect the Underside. Question here is what is recommended to use as an undercoating? I will be ordering POR-15 for the frame, and Heculiner for the inside of the tub. I have seen a couple of post regarding the use of both products for a “bullet-proof” undercoating. What are your recommendations for an extended body life in CO.
Thanks

Re: Undercoating for a used YJ tub

Why not use POR-15 for the underside of the tub, also? I'm planning on doing this myself with my CJ.

Re: Undercoating for a used YJ tub

I used POR-15 for both the inside and underside. Although I dont know if its necesary, protecting both sides of the metal seemed more logical to me. I then Herculined the inside too.
Its been almost three years now and no complaints.

Re: Undercoating for a used YJ tub

Thanks Guys, I was curious if POR would work for an undercoating, but I think I'm on the right path now. If anyone has other ideas, please let me know.

Re: Undercoating for a used YJ tub

If you have the money why not get the inside, and underside prof. sprayed by Line-X or Rhino Liner...

The stuff lasts a LOT longer than herculiner,.. but remember it cost a TON more too [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] It's up to you..

I`ve seen a lot of Line-X jeeps and they all still look great, while the Herculiner wears down to smooth, and eventually to your paint/metal again..

That's my .02

Re: Undercoating for a used YJ tub

Wow to quantify the TON remark. That “ton” would be $800.00 to Rhino line both the underside and the inside. Those folks are real proud of that product. Great idea, but to rich for me.
Thanks Todd for the idea it’s always appreciated.

Re: Undercoating for a used YJ tub

Yep, it's a lot of money.

I like the texture of Line-X myself, but the price on that is $500 here... also the Line-X ppl here are nicer to deal with and VERY personable compared to the Rhino Liner personel here.

In the future.. after my axle upgrades I will do Line-X.

I have pictures of my brothers CJ-5 with Line-X on the inside, Rollbar, and under-seat gas tank.. Total cost: $750

It's good stuff!
