2-Tone painting the XJ?

I have been noticing XJ's with a 2-tone paintjob. Bedliner and actual paint. Does anyone have any tips for when they bedline?

What bedliner do you use?
Did you sand down to bare metal and primer+bedliner?
Also, if you have this paintjob, how durable is it? Do you often have to touchup?

Yaknow..basically a guide to this.

If you want a quality, UV stable Berliner that doesn't look redneck and doesn't scrape your skin off if you touch it, use Monstaliner. See their we page for more info. Also do a web search for a guy who two toned his Pathfinder in Monstaliner. He has a great video series documenting the whole project.

Thanks. I'll take a look. I used duplicolor bedliner and it seems to come off...rather easy.

Monstaliner doesn't use any rubber or kevlar grit/filler. All those other bedliners use some sort of filler and are not UV stable--they end up degrading and fading. Color selection sucks as well. Monstaliner has like 40 colors to choose from and is a official vendor here at JeepForum.

When something comes off rather easily, that's usually the fault of the prep, not the paint. Usually.

I did a rattle can rustoleum bed liner black and rustoleum high performance machine grey and it came out pretty good. I sure you can find better stuff out there but it cost me $100 and about 2 days of my time.
