It also takes a certain amount of skill to do a 'good' job with 'good' paint. Good auto material is fairly unforgiving. Spending a grand to learn with is a bad idea. but spending $20, doesnt matter if you mess up. Sand and do it again.

Odds are im typing on a tablet. It takes too much effort to add some punctuation. Im lazy, get over it

Never underestimate the power of stupid.

...and seriously, a roller? that would take forever
Because its a JEEP! Before you make a stupid comment, give a roller a try. It's obviously not slow. I have too many people who approach me at gas stations, etc that will argue for me on how great it looks.

I'd say use it as an excuse to do a two tone job.

Or you can always do your hood and grill and front and rear bumpers in bedliner. Rustoleum truck bedliner spray is good for the price.

if you want to do a cheaper home pro paint job I saw something in a streettruck catalog that you can buy a gal of premixed paint for like 20bucks and ive seen cheap guns on ebay
not im sure it wont be a killer paint job but might be a step above the roller

I just spraybomb with rattle cans and it looks just fine it just doesn't have that deep look if you know what I mean
I sprayd my brothers hondookey civic with dollar general rattle paint n it looked just fine until you were right on top of it but ill bet if we cleared over it aftr it woulda been way better....

besides if they looked at it that long to notice paint imperfections they been looking at it too long....
