So, one of the things we wanted on our Jeep JT Gladiator Rubicon from the factory and would have gotten had we been willing to wait for the Launch Edition that we originally ordered, is a bedlined bed. This is of course because we do plan on using our Gladiator as the pickup truck that it is. And, while I have bedlined a few Jeep tubs in the past and been happy with the results, Cindy and I decided that for our Gladiator, we wanted to have something a bit more professionally done. Needless to say, that's why we went to Line-X and in this short video, you'll get a close up look at what it takes to get their bedliner and Premium Top Coat, sprayed into a bed of a Jeep Gladiator truck. We hope you enjoy and find the information to be useful.

Looks great. One of the first things I'm going to do. Kind of surprised they didn't pull the plastic trim up top, but looks great regardless. Really clean work.

Looks great...and will definitely extend the life of your bed. I've owned a lot of pickup trucks in my life...and lined the bed on most of them.

I can't wait to see this truck on 40's...

That looks great! It really makes a big difference to have a quality bed liner.

Pretty cool! Personally I’m kinda tempted to get a JT without the factory lining just so we can get line-x to do it. We’ve had line-x in our other truck for 12 years with absolutely zero issues. We even lost our warranty sheet but had it covered in 3 different states at various points, and only to fix gouges caused by us scraping it by hauling heavy metal objects such as industrial generators and such.

Thanks! They did great work and it took all of about 2 hours in and out :yup:

Thank you :)

That's why we got it done. Hoping to load up the back with some useful gear and wanted some protection from it :)

Thanks and I totally agree :)

That's awesome to hear. This is our first time getting a LINE-X job and so far, we've been super happy with the results :)

It looks great! How does it compare to the Raptor liner you used on Jane?

Turned out great. Way better than the work some of the so called turbo-liner certified shops do down here.

That looks great. I wouldn’t of known it wasn’t factory. Sounds like a great warranty too!

So, one of the things we wanted on our Jeep JT Gladiator Rubicon from the factory and would have gotten had we been willing to wait for the Launch Edition that we originally ordered, is a bedlined bed.



Be glad you went this way, the factory bed liner is not that great. it's thinner then what they apply at LineX and its easy to gouge. we see lots of factory ones and actually quit selling them as a option.

That looks great!

Thanks! Really happy we decided to do this. :yup:

Thank you. The extra black always helps out on a white Jeep :)

There really is no comparison. While I am happy with how the Raptor liner came out on Jane, the quality of it pales in comparison to Line-X.


Turned out great. Way better than the work some of the so called turbo-liner certified shops do down here.

Yeah, I'm really happy with what we got and for how much it cost and for how fast they were able to do it.

Yup and really, I think it's better than factory :)

Honestly, I was super surprised at how fast all this could be done. :yup:

Thanks! It sure looks like it will.

Definitely glad that we went this way. Having seen the factory bedline, I can definitely see how the quality and thickness of this is BETTER.

Pretty neat to see how Line-X is applied. I don't think that the price was too bad either.

Thanks, that's what we're hoping for. Glad you enjoyed the video :)

Price was great especially being that it's a $500 option from the factory.

Great product for sure, and any company willing to give a warranty like they do you can’t go wrong with

Thanks for sharing that process. It was really cool, informative, and looks great. Hopefully the premium coating holds the shine and keep it looking new. That was always the complaint I had with Rhino liner. You had to keep applying this UV protectant to it to keep it "shiny". Anyone I ever knew who had it installed always regretted it when it turned chalky and flat. My ex father-in-law owns a body shop and used to spray scorpion liner which is supposed to hold up similar to what Line-X claims. I had never seen what it looked like after a few years though so I can't attest to that. I never felt the need to remove my plastic drop in...haha.

Turned out great! I’m a huge fan of Line-X. I would’ve gone the same route. :thumb:
