I have seen bed liner on the outside on both Jeeps and trucks, not really experience but I have seen it. Bed liner is tough and resistant to most things.

Don't know the brand, but, I've seen plenty of outside ("Patio") furniture with texture paint on it, seen some that was bent and beat up (stumbling drunks-like), and haven't seen any chips. I felt it up and, seems pretty strong ... had the same idea myself a few times ...

I put Duplicolor Bed Armor (not the truck bed liner) on the outside of my CJ7. I will post a picture tomorrow. The body is from a YJ and the many layers of paint were in rough shape. I didn't want to strip the body and I didn't want to ruin a paint job by going through the woods, so I put bed liner on it. I saw a truck with it and it didn't look bad , so I tried it. I have also seen Durabak on someone's truck.

i used durabak. i would recommend the smooth with UV protectant as it is still somewhat textured but is easy to clean, the textured is a pita to clean.

U-Pol Gravitex is a textured anti-stone chip paint. It goes on before your base coat. You can vary the texture by altering the PSI of the gun or distance from the panel. It forms a very hard chip-resistant coating with a heavy orange-peel texture. I used it on the underneath of my tub, but I wouldn't coat the outside of the body with it, I think it would look kind of silly.

I have just recently done a few projects with the Rutoleum Hammered paint. Bumpers, roll cage etc. Others have done more than I have. Search my posts on it to see my results & those of others. I believe it can be sprayed as well as brush & roll on. Pretty cheap too..... $12 bucks a quart at Wally World.
