It just doesn't have that "rough" look that I've seen with other bed liners. It doesn't feel rough either. It's like I just plasti-dipped it.

Still looks pretty sweet dude, at least it's not faded like mine. How many coats did you put on?

Haha yeah I guess so. I did 4 coats. The can was $12 and I don't think I even used half of it.

Haha... I was so close to buying that if we are thinking of the same one. But, last minute decided not to.

Haha it was probably a good idea that you didn't because I emailed the seller to see if it was returned to stock and still haven't heard back. I haven't paid yet so we will see how it goes

Lol I wasn't sure if i was going to get laughed at for that one ^^^ lol. But it does make sense because what your wanting is more grip and that's the same thing they add to mechanics soap. Like at the junk yard we always pick up a little sand before using the watered down soap they have. Idk if it flake probably not it probably would work. BTW thanks for the warning I was going to get some of that stuff but I might look for something else.

That's the same stuff I use and I love it. Granted it is not as gritty as real bedliner like LineX, Rhino, or Raptor but it is so much cheaper and easier to use. I have found that if you shake the can VERY well before use and after every few seconds of spraying and also use heavy coats then it turns out nice. It holds up a lot better than the other cheap rattle can brands too.

Looks nothing like mine. Must be the sprayer of the can instead of the can itself haha Jk. I kept spraying until it was gritty enough. Many coats and probably half the can or more because I ran out when spraying the grill. Only did the step. The guard above in inside the jeep and the grill

Bought a rough country lift for my WK. Now I have to decide about tires. I'm so confused as to what size to get! 255 bfg all terrains is what I'm leaning towards. Will I need spacers? Or could I get by with 265 without spacers?

If you get either without spacers you'll most likely have to trim the upper control arm bolt, and with 265 you'll have to do the pinch weld mod if you wana be on the safe side

We put the 265's on before spacers and they slightly rubbed when the wheel made a full turn. 1 1/2 rough country spacers did the job perfect though!
