bedline the wheel wells?

I was wondering if anyone on here had bedlined their wheel wells on a zj? I have a 93, light grey with darker trim and bumpers. I had some damage on both of the rear wheel wells that was taken care of with bondo, but is just primered now.

I was thinking of buying one of the roll on bedliner kits, taping off only the wheel wells, sanding, priming, and bedlining. But I'm not sure if it would look good or not. I like the look of fender flares, but I'm not sure how this would look on my jeep.

I used the duplicolor roll on kit from either advanced or autozone. That picture is right after I finished so its not as shiny now. The only problem I have had as far as durability is that I started peeling the tape off before it was completely dry. There are a few chipped spots along the top edge because of that, I went along the rest of the edge with a razor and that part is fine.

I have used the rustoleum spray can from walmart on my zj's bumpers, sides and grille and am very happy with the result.

I've seen a similar product the the local autopart stores that is labeled Undercoat (vs Bedliner) and I'll be trying that inside my wheel wells to see how it compares.

The only problem I've heard of is that it's hard to clean. the dirt will get in all the valleys and divots etc and difficult to get out. However, I want to do this too.

If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

my ZJ

fenders, cladding, center of hood and roof = Herculiner Bedliner

the rest of the Jeep = Rustoleum spray on bed liner

This is why I don't understand why people do this.

I did just my rockers a few months back with the Duplicolor stuff, and while the rain has washed all the rest of the mud off my Jeep, there are still big clumps of it stuck to the rockers. I can't imangine the whole Jeep, or even just all the cladding, being like that.

And form over function...what's the function? To hold on mud?

I can see using it to cover less than perfect body work (which is why I did my rockers) but I don't see the appeal of doing anything else with it.

I say bumper coating or Krylon Fusion FTW. I did my bumpers and cladding years ago with Duplicolor bumper coating, and it came out GREAT, and has held up very well. And it's easy to wash, just like stock. No tearing up sponges on a rough texture.

For INSIDE the wheelwells though, I'd go with a undercoating. I actually might try that when the weather gets warmer, maybe it'll cut down road noise a bit. I see the 'rubberized undercoating' at NAPA, I'll probably give that a shot.

The fuction is for protection from corrosion. I undercoated the inside of the wheel wells, I used Duplicolor Professional Undercoating

Yeah, I can see that, it's also part of the reason I did my rockers. But plastic cladding doesn't corrode, and that's what I was mainly talking about.

I've used duplicolor bedliner spray on my jeep hood nose, sideview mirrors, and custom rockers. Check out my build thread to see all about it, plus pics. I've been happy wiht the outcome.
