View Full Version : Sound deadener/ bed linner options
05-25-2011, 10:39 AM
After removing my carpeting in the Jeep today, I decided that I was gonna start looking into sound deadening and bed lining the interior to make cleaning easier and better protect from rust.
My questions are:
what brand of bed liner is recommended?
what have you used and how does it hold up?
Do they may a spray on sound deadener in an spray can that I can do at home?
Thanks in advance for any help and advice you can give.

I heard that Lizard skin stuff is good. But ive never heard of the other stuff. I havent lined a truck since my first XJ and i used Herculiner. Worked good. We had a friend do the Dupli color kit and the sand or whatever you call it was cheesy and blochy. The Herculiner has bigger bits in it. The Dupli color looked like they went to the beach and dumped sand in black Rustolium.

yea, at this point i am leaning towards the lizardskin, cuz i want to layer it like this... sound deadener 1st then insulation, then bed liner. So what ever i get i have to make sure that it and the bed liner will adhear to each other. or I just might spray paint it ultra flat black or leave it go, will have to see. but i still want to do the outside of the jeep that I have black now in bed liner

My old XJ i had it bedlined on the rockers and up the doors to the lower body line. Worked good and i would shoot it with gloss black rattle can to clean it up every once in a while. Only problem was my rockers rotted out from the inside out and the herculiner hid it. Actually held the rot together. By the time i realized, the rockers were toast. Gotta drill large drain holes in the bottom of the rockers to allow mud and water to get out. Thats my only advise if you paint the rockers.

Lizard skin is a good sound deadener but i don't think its meant as a beadliner. I used Herc in the back of my bronco and man does it stink to high hell for weeks.
If i had to do it all over i would have used Al's liner (http://www.alsliner.com/images/PandE.jpg) it cost alittle more than Herc but the results i have seen it looks a lot better and you spray it on so you can build up a thicker layer for better sound deadening,

Durabak is the crap for liner, it has UV protectent and holds up awesome.

Herculine 100%. They make a UV version now. I have the non UV and I still love it. I just hit it with some flat Rustolium every 2 years. For the underside, dupicolor rubberized undercoating spray can. Works great and cheap.

When I do this, I am gonna take the time and do it right.... it will end up being a long process.... IE, apply the first coating on a sat since the jeep dont move all weekend, then sunday apply a second coating, let that dry and harden for a week, then move to the next layer and repeat till I am happy with the results of the final layer.
Step 1: sound deadener
Step 2: insulation or bed liner
Step 3: bed liner
My biggest concern is if I do the sound deadener or spray on insulation (Lizard Skin makes some) will the bed liner adhere to the deadener or insulation? Or would it just be better to go with a thicker coat of bed liner by itself?

I used the rubberized sound deaden er on the underside of the jeep. I wouldnt use it and try to bedline on top of it.

Herc does very little for sound deadening, the Durabak and Al's probably would because you can spray them on and build up the thickness

guess I will have to call up some of the companies that I find and ask about the deadener and insulation and being able to either paint or bed line on top of it. I know what I am doing next week

so I think to save on cost, I will go without the sound deadener, and just do the insulation and bed liner. Still have to call lizard skin since they seem to be the best (quality and cost) to see about putting a bed liner on top of the insulation.
