New Bedliner question

I've been needing to coat my Zj's unibody and suspension for a while now and have been doing some research on different kinds of paint. I have been looking into the Duplicolor DIY spray kit and have heard good things about it being a rubberized paint. Bedliner to me seems to be the best for toughness. But won't the texture hold in mud and moisture better then a good quality paint thats smooth. Cause I have Bedlined my cladding with rustOlium liner and mud and water clings to it for a while.

You are correct. Dirt and mud will not just rinse off cleanly.

I steered clear of the stuff with the rubber pellets in it for this reason, Monstaliner has some texture but not like that stuff.... should be easier to clean....

I love the look and how tough the stuff is but I'm worried with all the nooks and crannies dirt and grime will just cling to it like my friends monsterlined truck. Cause I wana use it to coat my underbody, suspension and axles and don't want mud and such clinging and rotting everything.

Where is your friend with a Monstalinered truck that can't clean it?

I'm not saying you can't clean it he just doesn't clean it . But I'm saying it picks up so much dirt mud and dust really fast cause of the texture of it and I'm not sure if that will hurt my underbody or suspension.

To be honest, for underbody why even bother with bedliner where you won't even see the textured look that you like. Go with a smooth coating like Chassis Saver.

And correct me if wrong.. off road in mud, dirt, etc.. is not even a smooth coating going to get coated with crud and not clean off unless you pressure wash it?
