So this weekend I was thinking about removing the cladding on my jeep to bedline them. I have a question as to how to remove the cladding around the fenders? I've searched this and found how to remove the cladding from the doors but not around the fenders. I was wondering if it's the same as the doors or is there another way to remove them?
Also does the rocker panel cladding come off?

It's the same as the doors. All the cladding is just clips, some pushpin things, maybe a few screws. You will probably break the clips, but since you are bedlining them anyway it doesn't really matter lol.
FYI I've always heard bedliner fades and looks crappy over time. But it'd be good protection.
I bed lined my with the stuff in a can and masked off the body. Didn't want to take the time to take it all off and possibly break something. That was months ago and it still looks the same. No overspray.

I took off all the plastic besides the rear bumper, Imma get that tomorrow morning. I plan on sanding/ roughing the plastic up before I go and paint it. I'm not exactly sure if I wanna bedline it or what. I'll try and post pics tomorrow before and after.
Got any suggestions on a good protective coat of something I can do the plastics with?

So I went ahead and grabbed some rustoleum spray on bed liner and got the cladding from the doors and fenders sprayed. About two coats in. They're lookin pretty good right now. I had some trouble trying to remove the rear bumper, got all the bolts and pins out but I can't seem to get the skid strip clips off the top of the metal bumper, any ideas?
I'm just gonna mask the rear bumper and take the tail lights out, then spray it.
Also received my off brand cone shaped air intake kit today for $35 with shipping so I'll put that on this weekend. AND I might have enough to order the 4.5 inch Premium lift kit from IRO with this paycheck, I'm debating if I want to order it now or wait and save for tires too and buy everything all at once. Don't plan on installing lift until I get the tires.if I know I got money in the bank I'll just end up spending it quicker than I can save it.
