tape off the front of your jeep and paint it with rustoleum flat to or gloss black. whatever u like. i used this on my bumpers and it lasted a good two years plus it treats it for any rust very good paint to use, just spray right over what you have just make sure its clean.

I love Duplicolor Spray black bedliner. Just make sure you sand it very well and wipe it down with acetone before you spray.
