    These are colored too. Black ANYTHING is a nightmare to keep clean. I have a black Vette I keep a quarter inch of liquid glass on and one pass by a field that's being plowed and it needs washed.

    Maybe color + gloss keeps them a little cleaner? Again- the Line-X I'm used to seeing in truck beds is flat black. I'm talking about a colored Jeep. Alan's is red right?

    I'm also not one to wax my sxs- we have the good fortune of living on enough land to ride them weekly so they never stay spotless. If you like it so clean you could eat off it Line-X may not be the way to go. If you like the look and the toughness (and can swallow the price), I think it's a cool look. You sure don't see many of them!

    You might try looking into raptor liner, it lays down more like a heavy orange peel, with a semi gloss finish. It is marketed as a bed liner, and I had done a few beds with it. But it doesn’t make a good bedliner, because it is to smooth for the things in your bed to not slide. But it is just as tough as a line-ex. Because it is smooth it washes easy, and will shine back up just like the day you sprayed it. You would have to buy their gun. It sticks well to every thing I’ve used it on. I did my wife’s old 4-runners Crome numbers with it over 10 years ago. Just sold that rig this last spring and it still looked good

    P.s. the plastics may be cheaper, but only if they are available. I’ve been waiting on my right rear fender on my x since mid July. They are not available yet

    WOW! that is pretty damn cool. I was picturing the regular flat black across the bottom or something of the sort. Any color definitely hides dirt better than black. I've not seen a jeep in 100% line-x....or whatever brand he's using. If I win the lottery I may just have to pay that dealer a visit.

    You are correct @dnjones161 when you add color to the Line-X the price goes up fast and the texture on them is a little smoother than an pickup bed but still really strong.

    Here is a picture of the hood, I just power washed it from the trip last week to Lake City. This is almost 5 years old and nothing put power wash it after a trip and it has been through a lot of oak brush and we all know what that can do. I'm not saying it may be for everyone but I am saying that it has worked great for me and I would do it again.

    And even the black here looks great/ hasn't faded.

    Which illustrates the point that there are MANY different Line-X coatings- it's not just your dad's bedliner anymore.

    Cheap- no
    Durable- yes
    Looks cool- I think so but that's all personal preference

    If I remember correct the line-X I had done was called Line-X Ultra.

    I think the ultra was like 20% more but looked like it was worth it.

    It was more in addition, when you add color the price really goes up. If a person could stick to just black it would be much cheaper.

    It's gonna look crappy after some use. More crappy than just the plastics after some use. But it will look neat for a while. Be better off doing a wrap IMO. If you had a P500, I'd say go ahead since the plastics are pretty cheap to replace if you don't like it. The Talon has nice painted stuff though. But do what you like. Easy enough to imagine how it will perform based on how it works in a truck bed.

    Talon X
    I initially started this thread because I will use my Talon as a utility to a point even though it's technically not designed for that. The line x will keep me from destroying the plastics in the "bed" area when I bring firewood from the wood shed to the house and when I haul my chainsaws or equipment back there. I'm sure someone will say that I should have bought a Pioneer, but I didn't and that's because I wanted the Talon for the trails and recreation side more than the work side. I'm also adding one of the bolt on receiver hitches to tow my small landscape wagon around the property when I need to. I'm smart enough to not overload the machine and use common sense, so the light work that it will get will be miniscule. I appreciate the replies! Looks like I'll be getting it done before winter

    I can understand that. Some days I need more sport and some days more utility. Let us know how it goes and post pictures!
