Jeep RenegadeThinking about bedlining the whole jeep.. anyone done it? Tips? Pros, cons?Thinking about bedlining the whole jeep.. anyone done it? Tips? Pros, cons? Matt
From what I have heard insurance won’t cover any physical body damage
@Eric depends on the company. I know a few who have done their trucks and it’s been covered. Same way with ceramic coating
@Eric that’s weird some of the Wranglers come new from the dealer lots sprayed with colored bedliner
@Eric yes they will .. if mine wouldn’t of had a little frame damage , they would have fixed it
The inside, correct?
@Matt No advise then. I did the tub of my TJ and was one of the best upgrades I ever did.
@Jas Did his, I’m planning on doing my interior after Xmas
Ripping out all of th carpet and everything?… That’s an interesting idea and it would be more like a Wrangler and able to get wet on the inside…
@Ryan yes, because I’ve got the tube doors and I’d like to not worry about light rain or anything. It’ll also give me a chance to add drainage holes
Yeah… Sounds like a good plan for that path…. Then you just need someone to design a rear hatch that the back window can be rolled down or removed
@Ryan lol that’d be pretty cool.
I’d pay someone to do it the right way.
I’d do it if I could get hyper green
Get the raptor liner, and you get the mixable kind and you mix it with any paint color. So go to a Sherman Williams and get a gallon of whatever paint you want and mix them
U-Pol Products RAPTOR Tintable Truck Bed Liner Kit – 4 Liter https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NOIKON8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_2qWhCbN0EVY9W
@Matt is the link given the one you can mix? There didn’t seem to be many options when I clicked
@Bailey so you can go to the raptor liner website. But if you get the tintable kind then you can to a Sherman Williams automotive paint store they will give you a tintable paint color and will know what you are talking about. And then you add 75ml of hardener and 250ml of the tintable paint and then you get the color you want with the hardness of the bedliner and the texture is determined by the pressure its sprayed at.
@Matt cool. Looking into paint options. I like the price of liner but then the paint is ruined for resale lol. Don’t like the price of wraps but they can be removed
@Bailey that’s what I first said too. But what I said is once my paint has a lot of noticable scratches from mud and rocks then I’m gonna go with the bedliner because it can increase the value of the car vs a scratched up paint job. I’ve had my Jeep for 5 months and it already has some scratches on it. And I’m not the biggest fan of the blue.
@Matt ah I see. My “problem” is that my build is for breast cancer awareness and next year I will start traveling to spread awareness so I need to go pink.. and if that’s bed lined idk how well that will go over w the next buyer lol
@Bailey lol my wife is probably going to bed line hers pink?? but you can always remove raptor liner. It’s a pain in the ass. But not a done deal. After you remove it you can always go to macco and get a cheap paint job just to sell it
@Matt true I guess ? I’ve looked into monstaliner already just bc it comes in a wide range of colors
@Bailey get it liquid wrapped. It’ll combo the Berliner/vinyl wrap and should be cheaper than both
@Steve I can do it for you . I’ve done many whole cars , including my renegade
Con: you’ll never get it clean. It’ll always look dirty. Had a buddy who did his grill guard on his ram and he said it was the worst thing he’d done to the truck.
@Joe this is not true , if done correctly , all you have to do is rinse it off , dirt and grime come right off
@Jas I’ve heard a lot of people complain about not being able to clean bed lining that all the crevasse hold dirt too well.
Jake Todd I wonder if there are different types? Like different coarsenesses.
@Joe so depending on how much pressure you use when you spray determines how coarse it is.
@Matt hmmmm. Didn’t know that. I’ve seen my buddies grill guard he sprayed and it’s incredibly course.
@Joe the higher the pressure the less coarse it is and I dont want a crazy coarse texture I probably would spray the base coat at about 65-70 psi and then the second coat at about 55-60psi
@Matt I’d honestly stay away from it. I’d do a wrap before I spray bed liner on it.
@Joe but I hate wraps and I can’t imagine wraps holding up for a long time when it comes to offroading and where I live in 29 palms, Ca most of the roads are sand and rock. And I’m not really in a prime location for vinyl wrap shops.
Once its dirty it wont come off
If you don’t have any plans to trade it in, by all means do it. But if at some point you want to trade up for a JL or JK, damaged, and scratched paint still holds more value, then DIY raptor liner. Factory paint and colors, are more important for resale. I used raptor liner for my other build, it’s been absolutely amazing at being resistant to hail damage, and light dings.
Im not trying to trade it in anytime soon
@ bedlinedrenegade on ig
I support this!!!
I did mine all in all yellow . Unfortunately it was totalled last week
Do you have any tips on how to do it properly? How did you remove the door handles so you didn’t have to mask them? Can you do it outside if it’s not windy or raining?
Jake is correct ….take a part as much as you can . Less to tape , and less chance of having a tape line , you can spray outside with no issues , I’ve done it outside when my shop was full , with no issues
Prep is key , sand with 180 try not to burn through to metal, but if you do shoot some primer on . Clean really well…..tape it of ……clean it good again , and shoot it
@Jas Alright thanks man. I messaged you on Facebook if you think of anything else. What psi did you shoot yours at?
And what type of liner?
@Matt your best be would be s.e.m. rockit liner or upol to do it yourself
I usually run about 40 for the texture I like , you can play with psi to change textures
I just say a f150 like that and it looked cheap
They coated a wrangler with turbo liner at my job. It looks/feels pretty badass. Not sure I can post a link here without getting kicked out, but I can send it to you if you’d like.
I’ve done it on offroad toys. I wouldn’t ever do it on my primary vehicle.
If you bedliner it you’re owning it until it gets totaled. It totally kills resale value, and it’s hard as hell to keep it looking clean/nice.
