    Well, particularly for the parts that tend to get beat on, getting a rattle can that can be easily matched is a benefit in the long run. If she was a mall crawler or a show Jeep, powder coating or a pro paint job would be worth the money. Rock rails, fenders, and bumpers professionally done on a rock crawler you may as well torch your fucking wallet.

    If thatís the case keep it raw and donít even waste the $5 ha then when people ask why you didnít paint it your response could be, ďcause I like it raw!Ē, cause sexual stuff is cool. Iím curious to how Line-X or professional liner would hold up to rocks though so you should do that OP so I can live vicariously through you and report back.

    Even if the parts will get beat on, I would rather have them powder coated. Rattle can doesnít hold up as well, and you can still touch up powder coat.

    I disagree. Properly prepped and applied, quality rattle can paint holds up extremely well. I've used bedliner on my body armor and sliders as well as color match paint for the center decorative plate of my sliders and I haven't had any peel, chip, or fading other than what the rocks have done.

    I will say, that if I did it over again, I'd use a flat or satin black instead of bedliner only because it's difficult to clean the mud off.

    If you can find a good and affordable powder coat, thatís a hard to beat base coat because of the multi-step process for prep and adhesion. If you get a matte finish, itís super easy to rattle can for touch ups.

    I personally would never use bedliner as dirt with get trapped in all the roughness. VHT chassis/roll bar or rustolium pro enamel are the only style cans Iíd use for anything that is visible.
    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

    Good information, I was looking to touch up my bumper before winter, sounds like VHT will do the job.

    rattle can because when they get beat up on the trail they can be easily touched up. not so much with powder coating or line x.

    I use satin black rattle can for everything. Seems to work well for me and is easy to remember.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
