Thanks.

Took me a can and a half of Rust-oleum 15 ounce bed liner spray

I could have done it with 1 can no problem. It was pretty windy though, so I think I lost a lot of it in the wind. I also did 2 or 3 coats on most areas.

At $10 a can just get 2 so you don't need to run out mid job.

It's not as black as I would prefer, but it doesn't bother me like the drab gray ones did. It also did a nice job of filling in and removing scratches. FYI - I mentioned earlier that a bunch of rustoleum spray got on the body of the car because of the wind. Turns out that gasoline does a nice job of removing it without damaging the paint. If I were to do it again I would have used both newspaper and painting tape, not just the painting tape. Next on my to-do list... Tune-up, lift kit, bigger tires, new wheels, alignment then paint job.
Looks great, you can alway paint stock rims. Mine look like this:

Oh, don't do that. You will get tired of it very quickly. Had a buddy do that to his cherokee, he get bored of it after a month or so.

The painted stock rims look surprisingly good. I may consider doing that.

Could you share a few more pictures of your jeep? I'm interested in what tires and lift details you could share.

I do not have a lift, I'm at the stock height. I'll post pics of my tires tomorrow.
