Possibly repainting the heep again

Ok so about two years ago my uncle repainted my jeep for me. Me being a cheapskate bought tractor paint from tractor supply, cause I just wanted to get rid of the ugly purple. But anyway since it was first painted I have changed to the 97+ front clip and later I put the newer style doors on. I sprayed the parts I've changed but my jeep is like 50 different shades of yellow, plus the roof is pealing. So my plan is to sand it all down reprimer it, then spray it with a single stage again. I dont wanna do a basecoat clear coat deal cause I don't feel comfortable spraying a clear, and its not a show jeep.
I'm basically looking for input on what you guys think.

This is the primer I plan on using

This is the paint I plan to use, the color might change I'm thinking maybe a burnt orange

Those are both good paints, however with something that is gonna get scraped and smacked on trails, I would seriously consider doing the XJ in monstaliner. Those eastwood paints were the exact ones I was looking at before I decided to go with ML.

Seems it would be a ***** to clean up though. I know bedliners always look dirty.

No offense I'm sure ml is great product. And I probably would buy it but personally I dont like magnetmans attitude. I'd sooner use raptorliner.

U-pol raptor is amazing and I like it more then monstaliner but I painted with monstaliner because I'd figure I'd give it a shot and I loved the colors.

Easy to clean up. This is sprayed with the cheap gun
Also I have u-pol raptor on my interior floor, it's harder to clean up then monstaliner but not much, and it's definitely tougher.

Yea exactly I have it on my floor to on mine, I just think paint is easier to change later on. Once its bedlined I'm kind of stuck.

Does air craft stripper not do the same to bed liners as it does to normal paint?

I just got done spray painting mine lol. I got a picture of half it down. 3 rolls of tape some cardboard 4 sheets of sand paper, 6 cans of primer and 8 cabs of paint did 2 coats and looks amazing I think. I got sick of the red. Didnt take long either and would only take minutes to touch up if ****ed up. I used an ultra flat too, so it's a little harder to paint. But I used minimal prep, and holding up and looks awesome.
