Line X the whole jeep or ranger

Well I Know this is not really a new idea but I didnt know where to put it , Ive personally seen a bronco II like this and it looked great , but we need some guidence on this .
So one of my coworkers wants to cover his 06 Wrangler X , in line X all over the body exept the hard top and bumpers ...

Our questions
one ballpark cost -- I know it cost 500 to get our work trucks sprayed and there long beds also keep in mind theres not to much on a jeep ?

Heat disipation . My coworker is under the impression it will severly over heat his jeep or anything else ... Then I thought throw on a bigger efan , Auxilary oil cooler , bigger trans cooler and maybe some vent on the hood (kinda like turbo vents).Or is all this over kill?

I know somebody here has either done this or knows somebody who has , how do they like it ? any other pros and cons would be apreciated .

i had my fender flares bedlined (not line-x, local special) and over a year or two it faded to a light grey. I would imagine that line-x would do the same, just something else to think about.

a friend of mine had his whole interior done in his YJ and all he had to do when he got water in it was pull the plugs outta the floor and let it drain, then rinse it with a hose when he got home...

I've been thinking about rhino lining my exterior of my CJ-7 if I keep it. I herculined the interior and it looks awesome.

A buddy of mine herculined the interior of his TJ and it is great for clean up. As far as the exterior and heat I am not sure you would need to do all the mods you mentioned but you may want to search on the jeep forums because it would be more likely to find the answer there rather than here. Just an idea.

I've seen some vehicles done with herculiner on the outside... Just seems silly to me, and a bit excessive.

I've seen an subaru STI before... it looked cool. Whats coola bout it is if it gets scratched, you just touch it up and it looks perfect again.

i like the interior coating, but am not a fan of the whole exterior coating. if you do it, make it into a 2 tone paint job with the bottom color the line X

ive got a 99 ranger...with lil rust around bottem right door and tailgate....thought about going up to the body line thats about 14 inch up on the truck all the way around with herculiner. and around wheel wells...that way i could get rid of rust but not have to pay for it to be painted and ruin the paint wheelin....thought it was a good idea and for hundred bucks.....why not......will it be hard to get that body line clean and straight....or willl it look all fugded up

I think the reason they did it to a sti was because the paint chips easy. I still wouldnt do it though.




Be careful of rust. Once moisture get inside between the Line-X and metal its all over. No way to get it out.

Line-x chips off when stuff hit's it. I have chipped my bosses bedliner(line-x) and have seen it done on others. From what I hear Rhino liner doesn't chip.

if that is all you are worried about i dont think that will be a problem....i dont think having that on there would be any different than having several coats of thick paint on there which i do on my ranger (about 6 paint jobs now) and have never had any issues, so i think you should be good to go!!

I had my bed-liner done by the Line-X dealer in my town and he installed an additional "Dealer Sticker/Glue-in" up near the bed rail with location and phone number and repeatedly told me that as long as this is with the truck then it should be a free fix in North America, because its a lifetime warranty against chipping and irregular wear.

I'm also sure that if you ask enough people who have had rhino-liner done you will find some that chipped or wore out prematurely
