    They will just spray over what you have. I get that its textured and it goes on thick but it won't hide your old scratches. By the time you get a few "touch ups" you'll have a inch of rubber coating everything except where you need it.

    You can do bed liner, rhino liner etc at home but it’s not the same thing as line x.
    And yes, this is the internet.

    Touché....

    Yes you are correct I should have clarified “professionally installed coatings” vs DIY bed liners. I think the post I originally quoted stated they used Line x so it stuck.

    Line ex will rip right off if your really wheeling on rocks, if not then maybe itll hold up. But it certainly will be a pain in the ass to touch up. Paint it with some quality rattle can sp you like the finish, and after every trip, wash and touch it up. Super easy and itll look like nothing happened (well maybe some deep metal scratches)

    I believe if you go back to my original question I was asking those who had line x on these parts (i.e. rock sliders, bumpers) how it was holding up. Never asked if anyone thought it was dumb or if anyone wanted to debate which was better...

    To answer your original question no it will rip off. Many members on here have stated the same.

    Line-X is good for protecting your bed with simple things like tools, bags of rocks, moving furniture but when you put thousands of pounds of dragging pressure against the rocks it's not going to hold up and rip right off.

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.
