Take it to Maaco (are they still around) for a $200 paint job and spend the rest on upgrades.
Just roll the liner on yourself or rent a spray gun.

it's a 2001 TJ, why the piss would anyone be worried about the resale?

Maybe I'm just not the kind of guy that goes through Jeeps like toilet paper.

If it's what you want do it. I get alot of good comments on my Duraback paint job.

I have a friend who Plastidiped his CJ.

It resisted scratches better than paint and was easy to touch up when a scratch did happen. When he wanted to sell it for a truck, it just peeled off.
Pretty good option IMO.

Ive never used plastidip, but Im not sure how Id like it... doesnt it peel off easily? By saying that, I mean, if you hit a tree branch or something; could it peel off a fair sized chunk; or what about a pressure washer?

Anyways, I WILL monstaline mine in and out at some point. The paint is bad as it is; and although I COULD paint it (My uncle is a bodyman; and taught me a lot of tricks and tips; and lets me use his tools), Id prefer the look of monstaliner.

Whiteout, does it come in another color ;-)


Seriously, what good does that really do? Will it prevent damage to the fender if you land on a rock? What about those magnetic body armor panels they use to sell. Wouldn't that prevent scratches, especially if you tend to drive in the woods alot?

You can do Line-X in any color. Just get the paint code and bring it to them.

Like the pics above, I saw a pick-up done in bed liner. It looked okay when it was first done (and clean). After it had been in the dirt and then washed, the dirt really liker the little crevices and was hard to remove without a hand-brushing - very time consuming.

It didn't look bad, really... as long as you're into that military effed-up chic look.

i think it looks bad a**. it might take longer to clean but hell it takes a good couple hours to clean the underside if you were in deep mud.
i don't have to worry about scratchs, or fadeing.

The truck was pre-prepped thanks to a few years of trees scratching it offroad haha. They had it in and out in 3 days I think.

I did inside, under, and six iinches up the sides and back. Every place a jeep might want to rust out. I then color matched it. It looks like a chip guard when people comment.

I didn't do the whole exterior, but just my hood and steel doors. I used Rustoleum 1gallon Truck Bed Coating because it doesn't have as much of a texture and an ultra-high density foam roller. Make sure you get the white foam ones, not the yellow ones. All I had to do for prep was scuff up the old paint until it was all hazy and then rolled it straight on. I put about 5 coats on with about 45mins between each one.

It turned out really nice and It hasn't faded in the sun. I've had it like this for about a year now. It holds up like armor when you pressure wash it and reduces the glare I got when the sun reflected off the hood. I have the Bushwacker 'Trail Armor' as well. (Yes, I know it's plastic, but it was a b-day gift from a friend and I had to put it on) And it matches the color/texture of the 'armor' pieces pretty well.
