Rhino line side panels and bumpers?

So I have a black 00 wj laredo. I'm wanting to black everything out. I'm going to paint the grill black today but was wondering what everyones opinions were about rhino lining the side panels and bumpers. I think it would look good and give it more protection but will it bond to that surface? Any pics that people have would be a great help. Thanks guys!

let me see if i can find a local guy that rhino lined his entire truck. i will throw the camera in the jeep in case i run into him or see him. he rhino lined the entire truck, Ram 2500 on 6 inches. it almost looks like primer from a distant, especially when dusty. but when you get closer you can tell what it is. kind of cool and unique.
go for it. just take pics afterwardsfor us...

He rhino lined the whole truck huh? That would be worth seeing. Interesting. If I could see some pics it would help me make a better decision but I'll just probably do it. I've heard to use Krylon paint for the grill and then use a clear coat. Is that going to work?

I just painted my grill with some rustoleum cuz I was waiting for my car to dry and said **** it. Took the grill off sanded it down, primered it and painted it. I still need to add a few coats on and than clear coat it and ill be done but here is what it looks like. I took it off roading and no paint has chipped or anything. The only chipping that I am seeing so far is on the plastic cladding...

That looks good! Did you have to sand off all the silver color first?

So rhino lining is a pretty costly thing i just found out. I'm going to get some herculiner and just do the bottom portion below the rear doors to see what it looks like and how it holds up. I'll post pics when I do it.

Nope, just rough it up some, clean it off, primer, then paint.

And if I were you, I wouldn't use rhinolining/herculiner on the cladding. I've heard from other people on this site that they start to come off after a couple months. If you really want it black, get some krylon fusion for it or you can just take the plastic cladding off and then put the rhino/herculiner on the metal(prep first, of course).

Yeah that's what I was worried about. It would be a waste just for it to come off later. Thanks for the advice for that and the grill! Oh did you use a peticular color coat for yours? Will just, regular black work?

On mine, I just got the cheap $2 can at Advance Auto. Unfortunately, they only had it in gloss black...I would've liked it to be semi-gloss, but I'm very stingent with money...and I didn't want to spend an extra $3.

Anyways, that's been on there for about a month now with driving somewhere between 500-1000 miles and a powerwashing and no chipping or anything yet.

One thing I wanted to do was put some clearcoat over it....but you know, I don't want to waste that extra $3.

$2? The cheapest I found was about $88.00.

I think it would be sick and when mine gets a little older, I am definitely going to look into a large addition of bedliner.
