    Used Bed Liner on my EVO Sliders, looks nice, and seems pretty durable

    Self-Etching Primer by Rustoleum and then either textured or gloss, I can’t really decide what I like best.

    Thanks for the input! I’ll try it!

    Rustoleum Truckbed Coating really does work well. Here's some threads with pictures. I always keep a can handy for little touch up stuff on powder-coat.

    Do not spray rustoleum bed liner on raw metal without a good primer first. My flat fenders completely rusted in one year just rattle bombing them with it. Doesn’t protect well at all, need a real primer.

    ☝️ This. They'll have some rattle can self-etching primer right next to that bedliner. Also get some metal prep to wipe it down before priming.

    Maybe it’s just me but why buy expensive parts only to cover them with $5 rattle can spray or equivalent? Get them powder coated or professionally Line-X or Rhino Lined. Line-X even has colors...

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
