MONSTALINER Bed Liner

I didn't find much information about this product on the web so I figured I'd share the results with everyone. After doing a lot of research on roll in bed liners, I decided on Monstaliner. The main reason I chose it was because it was the only two-part bed liner I could find and it didn't have that stupid crumb rubber crap in it. Two parts paint is always much stronger, which is what I was looking for.
Installation of Monstaliner is about the same as all other bed liners. Clean the bed, scuff all surfaces, & apply two coats of bed liner. I also used another product in prepping the bed called Chassis Saver made by the same company. The chassis saver can be painted over rust or bare metal to prime the surface for Monstaliner. It was not mandatory to use the chassis saver ,but it was recommended for best results by the manufacturer.
After mixing this stuff, it was about like rolling on tar. It also carries a strong odor. I would recommend the use of a respirator if your do your bed liner in a garage like I did. If I do another truck, I'm doing it outside. Once the hard part of prepping was done, rolling the bed liner on was easy. The only problem I had was the foam rollers falling apart. I would recommend purchasing some extra rollers. If you hit any sharp edges, they start falling apart. The rollers do give a very nice texture though. The one-gallon kit is just enough to do our Toyota beds, but I got the two-gallon so I could do my bumpers too.

Pros: 2 Part Base
40 dry mils thickness
100% UV permanent & fade resistant
Resists gasoline, solvents, chemicals
Very Durable

Cons: Rollers Aren't Durable (Turns out I got a bad batch of rollers according to the manufacture.)---See Post #11

Overall I think Monstaliner is a good product. I have had it in my truck about 3 months and it has held up great so far (and I have been abusing it). I will keep the thread updated with further review of this product in the future. Here are some pictures of the install & finished results.

Remember: Good Prepping is Key to Good, Lasting Results!

How much of the Chassis Saver did you buy?

It seems like this "Chassis Saver" is an almost replacement for Por15. Cheaper too.

FYI for those interested in this product. I spoke with Eric (the president of magnet paints) about his colored versions of this product and he assured me they would be available by the end of this month. He also stated that he would "probably" extend the coupon for free shipping and a free quart of chassis saver into the month of May.
I found the coupon on a jeep forum but if you google Monstaliner coupon it should bring up the info and explanation on how to use the coupon codes
FREECSQ for the free quart of chassis saver
FREESHIP Self explanatory
I'm in no way affiliated with this product and receive no monetary compensation

could you post up some close up shots of the surface? I'm interested in how it feels to the touch. If you were to take say a wool sock and drag it on the surface would it get snaged on the texture? Basically i'm asking if its a rough finish.

Looks great! You should use the liner on your grill to get rid of all the chrome

It's textured but it will not snag anything.(Like a wool sock)

Here is a close-up.

Thumbs up

Hey guys I wanted to share this response I got from the manufacture regarding the foam rollers.

"I apologize that you seem to have been bitten by the batch of bad rollers we had last summer.
We were getting that from a company in CA that makes them in Mexico.

Problem has been fixed. Was caused by skimpy glue application between the foam and the core.
People interpreted the problem as the foam falling apart which was true but only after it separates from the core.
Have not had complaint now in at least 6 months unless someone had an old kit unused."


Sounds like they got it squared away.

I want to know about uv resistance.

Edit: never mind. 5 year uv guarantee. Sounds good. I think this will be the route I go.

I have thought about that. I went ahead and ordered black today. I plan on doing my bed, caps, tailgate, and rockers in black. I'd like to do the rest in OD green. Maybe do the hood Two Tone like YotaRob's color scheme with black in the middle with this Monstaliner. I just don't know how bad it's going to be on wind resistance. Surely this stuff is better than the rougher liners.

What if the UV gets to it before five years? Are they going to send someone down to take it off and reapply it? Ha.

I didn't notice any difference, but if you did your floorboards I think it would help.
