Paint or Monstaliner?

I am debating on painting the exterior of my Jeep or doing Monstaliner. So I have some questions.

Those who have done Monstaliner, are you happy with the results down the road and does the color hold up well?

I use my jeep and it is not babied so I dont want to tear off new paint when I'm wheeling.

I will prep everything well and take my time so no worries there but I want to be happy after I cover the entire exterior with Monstaliner.

Just looking for Opinions

Thanks in advance!

Beat it to fit, Paint it to match

I think monstaliner on exterior looks funny with their rollers. It looks great inside though. I used a normal roller on certain parts of the exterior and to me personally it looks better. Not so bumpy if that makes sense. Not sure on the color holding up but judging from before and after pictures, it seems just fine.

anything against rocks never holds up well lol i would just paint it with paint from o'reilly, they have duplicolor in quarts can, and you should be able to get that stuff in a can to touch up later..... thats what i would do but on the side note i used raptor bedliner on the inside and under my jeep and that stuff lays out nice..... just saying

I think exteriors in monsta liner only look ok when someone has a lot of body damage. If that isnt you situation, I wouldnt do it.

I did my quarters with Monstaliner on my XJ. Very pleased with it. I applied it with 2 heavy coats so the texture isn't really rough. It is tough as nails, cleans up with no problem. I went with black, it hasn't faded but I don't have any experience with their colors.
