Plasti Dip my whole jeep

Ok so I found dipyourcar.com and i am thinking of plasti dipping my jeep. I like the idea of rino lining it but thats not cheap. Any ideas the videos make it look so easy and I dont care if it comes off in a year because i can re do it.

So it cost as much as paint, requires the same effort to apply but peels off if you look at it wrong . where is the advantage?

I would also be worried about it pealing off. And how well does it hold up to everyday elements and use?

If you want bedline exterior, save up and do it right once. Future you will thank your present self. weve all been tempted by cheap products but 90% of those of us who have taken the cheap route have regretted it down the road.

the dip kit actually costs a little more than the amount of Monstaliner needed to do an entire Jeep.

Monstaliner can be sprayed or rolled on, plus it's available in many more colors, and will hold up much longer with proper prep and application

I dont get it, the website says "most importantly is comes off easily as well"

Is it intended to be like a temporary paint job?

I'm confused.

Jeep 1:Used to have a 93 YJ 2.5l- 3.5" Black Diamond, Chevy TBI 5.7l V8, SM 465 4 speed, 8.8 rear( 4.10, L/S), rhinoline, Mile Marker 9000, NP 231, Had to sell it due to college
Jeep 2: 89/91 YJ, 4BT Cummins, NV4500, NP 231, Old Man Emu 2.5" suspension lift, 1" body lift.....Runs and drives, but very much a project
Interned at Novak Conversions 2 summers ago

Ask me about my 4BT Cummins Motor Mounts!!

I used plasti dip on another car of mine to test out some random ideas. I painted the grill, mirriors, section of hood and the roof. The stuff does not just fall off if you look at it wrong. It's very durable for normal every day driving. I would not however put it on something that's going to get a lot of wear...such as any part of the interior. If you put it on the outside it will come off if you scrape into something wheeling or whatever. But it will not just fall off. I've had it on a few sections of my car for over two years and it's fine. There are no rock chips or anything.

To make life easier, just wash your jeep, wax it, then plasti. It'll come off a lot easier (in a good way) if you wax it. Plus it's temporary, if you don't like it peel it off, feel like a new color, peel it off and reapply.

This plastidip thing has got me thinking a little. Then again, it's the go to medium for painting jk rims so it doesn't void the warranty. Makes me think that if I use it, I'll forget how to wave back to other jeepers.
