Bumper Paint

I painted my bumper with por-15 primer and black paint and it chipped and started to rust from the tires throwing rocks at it.

What paint, bed liner, or powdercoating do u guys use that can take the abuse and not chip?

I need to repaint the bumper and want something tough what do you guys have on your bumpers?

I used Duplicolor spray on bedlining

It's only about 7 bucks a can, used it on my rollbar, bumpers, tube fenders, and rock panals and it turned out really nice, you can see some pics in the link in my sig

Welcome to the forum BTW

Welcome to the forum BTW
did the bumpers and sliders paint hold up and not chip due to the debris being thrown at it by the tires?

and is the paint textured like most bed liners?

If you're using your bumper as an actual bumper (as in you're hitting things that are heavy or hard like a rock), then there's no real way to completely that finish because obviously things like rocks are harder than paint.

POR (and most rattle can) should hold up fine to rocks and stuff after it fully cures. So unless you applied it wrong or didn't let it dry, it was probably poor surface prep.

My bumper is covered in chromium.

Yup, best stuff. Ian Johnson on Xtreme4x4 touts it too, uses it on all the cages and bumpers they build.

I vote for Duplicolor. You may also want to try LineX.

The duplicolor works great, stands up to a lot of abuse, and when necessary very easy to touch up.

And does duplicolor come on smooth? I want a bed liner to paint my brand new bumper because it seems to stay on much better, but i want it to be smooth and not choppy like many bed liners.

Duplicolor Truck Bed Coating is not like a smooth paint, but it has no sand or fillers in it like Herculiner. It sprays out of a regular paint can nozzle and dries with a thicker wrinkle finish.

Yes, it has already been said above it is stronger than paint and softer than rocks. You've gotten 8 positive replies and zero negative ones on this stuff, and it's only $8 a can or so. Go buy it already and tell us all how great it is.
