Guess bumpers aren't suited for use with a hi-lift. Or you can acknowledge the fact that hi-lift's lift arms have teeth, and 2000+ lbs of pressure on a single point it more likely to end up ripping up paint or bending metal.
Sounds like he should have stayed at the mall :-)

If this is the contact surface we are talking about I think it would have been wise to put something between both surfaces

Lol, funny that some folks can't understand the limitations of paint.

However, I used my Hi-Lift to jack up my Jeep a few times today via the rock rails. I got underneath the Jeep just to make sure I hadn't scratched the Monstaliner off. Needless to say, staring at two patches where the Monstaliner had disappeared completely was a big surprise.

Has anyone else tried using this on outside surfaces and had problems with it being so easily removed?

Why people put any kind of coating like bed liner or powder coat on skid plates, rocker guards, bumpers, etc. is beyond me. Something that will take abuse is the last place I'd waste time and money with anything fancy like that.

I don't see any liner holding up to repeated use on rocker guards unless you're staying at the mall; mine get dragged over rocks every time we go out, so obviously I'd expect whatever they're coated in to be scraped off. And that is exactly why the Monstaliner is inside the Jeep, and my rocker guards/bumpers/skidplates are coated with rattle can.

Plus, if you're actually using your rocker guards to slide over obstacles like rocks, why would you want something rough that would hinder your movement?

Completely understand; I should have been more clear. My point was that if you don't subject your vehicle to that kind of abuse, you probably don't want to be rubbing a big metal object all over the nice clean pieces you just painted either.

True.. even a high quality powder coating would have a problem with 1/2 the vehicle weight against the small area on that jack hook

Also.. with the primer that many choose to use being rattle can crap, I want to say that epoxy primer would probably do better. Those spots appear to be down to the metal

Well I'm not sure about lifting from the frame via the OE bottle jack, but I'm guessing he's saying to lift the Jeep properly instead of jacking from the rocker guards with a high lift.

I can see using the high lift if you're off-road and it's the best/safest option, but not really at home.

You will always get damage that's beyond your control

In this situation, it was fully in control

I have to use my hi-lift if I want to get my suspension to completely droop. Though I've only had to do it like once or twice.
