Gas may be carried under the Hazardous Materials - Materials of Trade Exception (49 CFR 173.6) in quantities not greater than 8 gallons per container with the total weight of all hazardous materials not exceeding 440 pounds. Any quantity of gasoline greater than 8 gallons per container must fully comply with HAZMAT regulations.

LINE-X Xtra is a product that was developed by Dupont and LINE-X. It is significantly more durable than other topcoats that are typically used on spray-on bedliners. Xtra in black has been out for a little over a year. Xtra for colors has been out for about 3 or 4 months. When LINE-X dealers apply a color match, they use color pigmented LINE-X and then top coat it with Xtra. If Xtra is applied onto a warm freshly sprayed bediner, it actually migrates into the bedliner. It migrates as if you dropped water on a sponge, there's a higher concentration towards the surface. LINE-X without Xtra will fade. LINE-X with Xtra will fade as fast as your truck's paint, which is not very fast and you'll probably never notice it with the naked eye.
LINE-X offers a limited lifetime warranty, valid nationwide and can be viewed at www.goline-x.com I won't repeat the warranty info here, just go read it. However, the current warranty does NOT include a warranty against fading. Why? Because Xtra will fade, but again, you'll probably never be able to see it.
LINE-X dealers must first become certified before they can sell Xtra. "Certified" means a one day training class typically conducted by Dupont. If you want to discuss Xtra, find a dealer that sells it and has been trained. Dealers that are not trained are not capable of answering your questions regarding Xtra. Why don't ALL the LINE-X dealers go get trained ASAP? Well, for several possible reasons: Some dealers are in very rural areas and there is very little or no demand for colors. Xtra contains solvents and some states (like California) have VERY strict rules and restrictions regarding spraying products with solvents. The older dealers were never trained on how to apply pigmented LINE-X, so they shy away from colors. Some dealers do not have the drive to be cutting edge.
As far as pricing, LINE-X dealers are free to set their own prices.

Get a different dealer if possible. Line-X, IMO, does a better color match, especially with how light a color your Jeep is.
