Bed Liner Question

Well... after doing some searching on this forum, I am going to Herculine the tub on my newish jeep.

One question... Once lined, can the factory carpets ever go back in?

Re: Bed Liner Question

I don't see why not. I can't remember if there were any screws that held down the carpet or not... I don't think so, but if there are, you will need to make sure that you leave those screw holes in the tub there when you herculine.

Re: Bed Liner Question

Thanks for the reply.

Actually the carpets are held in with snaps. I don't mind taking all the snaps out before I apply the liner.

This is my real concern

1. I apply the liner and it completely cures.
2. One day I decide to install carpets back in over the liner for whatever reason.
3. A few really hot and humid summer days go by.
4. I try to take the carpets out for a fall/spring cleaning.
5. Yikes... I find out that the herculiner "glued" them in.

Is this a concern?

I have no experience with bed liners.

Re: Bed Liner Question

don't worry about it. i put a herculiner in my tub, fenderwells, and engine compartment, and once it cures, it does not become "sticky" again. it may be hot, but it won't stick or anything like that. i ran the beast (350 engine) in the middle of a tennessee summer, all day, popped the hood, and it was hot, yes, but it hadn't rendered itself back to goo again. it wouldn't be good for the product if once it gets a little hot it melts off your truck!
